Thailand Day 17

Casa Pascal

What can I say... This is probably still my favorite restaurant in the world! Pascal is originally from Korea but got adopted by a swiss family when he was a small child. He was raised in Lucerne, Switzerland, followed by a long journey (chef in Hong Kong, head of the kitchen at the Dusit in Thailand) and now has his own restaurant in Pattaya, Thailand.

His food is fantastic! While some recipes are very sophisticated like his goose liver terrine for example, you'll also find simple and hearty dishes on his menu like beef stew, wild mushroom risotto and spaghetti.

The dishes are perfectly prepared and amaze me every time I go there. I keep finding myself asking the question why his dishes taste so great! It's a new experience each and every time!

A very special occasion is the sunday brunch as well, which happens only from october through march I believe. Simply put, it's by far the best brunch buffet I've ever seen!

The restaurant itself offers a very warm and friendly atmosphere, beautifully lit, with lots of attention to small details.

Casa Pascal is a 'must' if you like to treat yourself to a great evening of fantastic food prepared by master chef Pascal and his wonderful wife, Kim.

Our bottle of Amarone gets decantered and warmed over a candle.











Still one of my favorite red wines, the Amarone is a full-bodied italian treat!











Amuse bouche, fresh crab cake.











Pascal's famous goose liver terrine. Amazing!











Maybe the best ravioli I've had in the last 10 years, with goose and beans filling.










A wonderful risotto with black truffles.











Creme brulee, with orange slices inside. It was good, but the desserts are not Pascal's highlights.










A good espresso with very delicous cookies made by Pascal as well.
