Every belgian is an expert in 2 things : beer and great food. And although - when being comletly honest - I must admit that on the food part the french are just a tiny bit more educated; no nation in the world can comete with us in the field of beer. They don't even get close. I am quite aware of the fact that every nation thinks that of itself, but if you've ever tried beglian beers, deep down you'll know this universal truth, even if you're not prepared to admit it.
Knowing this, imagine a place in a tropical paradise that offers rabit with prunes or belgian beef stew, and which on top of that sells 'Kwak', 'Leffe', 'Duvel', and 'Kriek'. I assure you that you will not get closer to heaven as long as you live, and seeing as you are in Pattaya maybe not even after you die :-) (good guys go to heaven, bad guys go to Pattaya right ?!?)
So if you are ever in Pattaya, try Patricks belgian restaurant and find out why you should visit Belgium if you are ever in Europe (and no, it will not be for the weather).
Favorite Dish: Konijn met pruimen (Rabit stew flemmish style)
I already told you that this is a fine restaurant with several delicious dishes.
But I also like to come here for the atmosphere and to talk to the owner Patrick.
Boxing is also part of his life; one wall in his restaurant is covered with photos and newspaper articles of his career. Another hobby is the skydiving. So if you want to know more on these items this is the place to be. You can also read more on this on his beautiful website.
There is always a list with the results of the Belgian football on the wall.
For me this a good place to eat or just to sit and have a beer.
Favorite Dish: Steak with mushroom sauce
The owner of this Belgian restaurant is Belgian (of course). His name is Patrick and he is from Gent. He is living in Pattaya for many years, When I first met him, he had a beer bar / restaurant in Soi Yamoto. But since a few years he has a beautiful restaurant in the Bavaria In walking street, the restaurant has a covered terrace.
If you are tired eating rice and noodles for several weeks, this is the place to be.
Patrick serves fine European dishes and the best Belgian (Flemish) dishes like Belgian beef stew (prepared with dark beer, onions and herbs) 220, delicious Flemish Goulash, Meatballs in tomato sauce (like mama makes them), Gentse Waterzooi (Flemish chicken casserole), Rabbit stew Flemish style (with prunes, vegetables and dark beer - grandma style).
Let’s not forget the hmmmmm juicy big tender steaks (more then 300 gr) with different herbs and sauces. With BELGIAN Fries . . . . .
Let’s forget our diet . . . . .
