Pattaya is blessed with international food traditions
By Mariya Panova
Pattaya is a multinational touristic city where you can taste cuisine from all over the world. Different traditions (in a wonderful mix with traditional thai food) came to Pattaya with expats. Now you can celebrate Christmas, European and Chinese New Years, St. Patrick's Day, Thanksgiving Day and a lot more special occasions from your homeland.
In Pattaya you can find Chinese Street as part of Pattaya South Road, the Indian and Arabian quarters on 2nd and 3rd Road and the Russian Street which is located at Pattaya Park. In all these places you'll find restaurants of both traditional and international food.
Soon it will be Thanksgiving, which is an American feast always celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November. This year it will be the 27th Novmeber and a lot of restaurants in Pattaya are offering special menus for their guests in this time of the year.
Food that are traditionally served at Thanksgiving meals is baked or roasted turkey, mashed potatoes with gravy, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, sweet corn, various vegetables and pumpkin pie. All of these are actually native to the Americans or were introduced as a new food source to the Europeans when they arrived in America.
We recommend four restaurants in particular for celebrating Thanksgiving:
Tequila Reef Pattaya Restaurant
Pattaya Beach Road Soi 7
Great American Rib Restaurant
229/95 Moo 12, Thepprasit Road
Big Horn Steakhouse
216 44-45, Central Shopping Arcade, Second Road
Dicey Reilly's Irish Pub
218 Moo 10, Pattaya 2nd Road
