Thailand Day 11

Roesti in Pattaya

George, who's building the house for me outside Pattaya, was telling me several times about this little thai restaurant in a small village that prepares an authentic swiss roesti and zuerigschnetzlets (veal in cream sauce). I had a hard time believing it until he actually took me there a few days ago.



The thai chef at that place used to work in a swiss restaurant before and prepares a wonderful roesti with veal. For a roesti recipe, click here.











Chinese Dinner at Chine Chine Bangkok

Chine Chine is an upscale chinese restaurant in Bangkok, run by a friend of Andrew's mom. The cozy atmosphere with above average long seats and the subtle jazzy piano and vocal background music, make for a very pleasant evening. One of Chine Chine's specialty is pigeon.

The duck skin wrapped in tortilla like corn flour dough.
Very similar to what we had at China Palace (click and scroll down).
