Mae Pim Thailand fabulous food

Mae Pim Thailand fabulous food was high on our list when my brother & I took some Australian friends to this quiet little seaside village 90 minutes east of Pattaya. The 3 days & 4 nights had the feel of an eating odyssey centred mainly around the Tequila Sunrise bar & restaurant. There is an international team, a Swiss owner, Peter the German chef, Gary an Australian manager & some very nice Thai staff who run this popular establishment. We had lunch there 3 times, dinner once and cocktails every evening. Above is Swedish Skagen at Tequila Sunrise

Skagen is one of my favourite dishes, here is Jamie Oliver’s recipe.

Swedish smoked salmon

Mae Pim Thailand fabulous food My good friend Tony Murphy rated this beautiful salmon 10/10 at Tequila Sunrise.

Here is Murph doing his best to imitate a rather dour Swede as a salute to this fabulous salmon dish.

 Bratwurst at Tequila Sunrise

Mae Pim Thailand fabulous food Naturally with a German chef you would expect bratwurst to be on the menu. 🙂 However let’s not forget the mash potato which was excellent.

Chris Lockwood aka Dr Evil

Dr Evil & Nikki Murphy fell in love with the Pina Coladas at Tequila Sunrise. Chris has just completed a terrific South American trip, read his hilarious blog, just follow THIS LINK.

Here is a Pina Colada recipe.

A bunch of Aussies

Mae Pim Thailand fabulous food This was certainly worth a photo, another excellent dish at Tequila Sunrise.

Peter the talented chef at Tequila Sunrise

Mae Pim Thailand fabulous food Peter was a chef at the Hard Rock Hotel in Pattaya until he saw the light and moved to Mae Pim. Now nothing short of an atomic bomb will get him to move anywhere else. Originally from Hamburg in Germany, he returned home for 2 weeks in May 2016, after 33 years this was his only visit. After speaking with him I’m guessing it may be his last trip home. 🙂

Up to now it seems like Tequila Sunrise is the only place we ate at, however there were a couple of other places. Here is my Tequila Sunrise photo blog from February.

Thailand beach resort fabulous food at Xing Xing

Mae Pim Thailand fabulous food One of the many Mae Pim seafood restaurants, lots of live product on offer at very reasonable prices. Above is their Prawn & Vermicelli which was absolutely delicious.

Rock Lobster at Xing Xing

Mae Pim Thailand fabulous food Rock Lobster at Xing Xing certainly lived up to the Mae Pim Thailand fabulous food category.

Seafood tanks at Xing Xing

Mae Pim Thailand fabulous food Lots of fresh seafood to choose here.

Lots of varieties

Mae Pim Thailand fabulous food I’m not even sure what this little beast is. 🙂

 Next door to Tequila Sunrise

Mae Pim Thailand fabulous food Sadly I didn’t get the restaurant name, however it was right next door to Tequila Sunrise, food was very good as was the beautiful breeze coming off the gulf of Thailand. My brother Warren enjoyed his fried squid in yellow curry with fried rice.

Chris also enjoyed his spicy Tom Yum seafood soup

All the dishes here were good and the price very reasonable.

 Wednesday special

Thailand beach resort fabulous food The Wednesday special at Tequila Sunrise is the enormous double schnitzel for only B159 which is a bargain. Here is my friend Larry Krausz who was born in Australia so I guess he was raised on schnitzels. 🙂

Larry & I were here in February 2016 and I couldn’t wait to return.

Larry Krausz wasa friend for around 30 years, sadly he suffered a major stroke on October 28 2016. After 2 months in the Bangkok Pattaya hospital on life support he was transported to Australia by a hospital Leer jet, thanks to his Medibank travel insurance. After a further month his life support was removed & he passed away peacefully.

I rest my case

Thailand beach resort fabulous food What a monster, comes with French fries or mash potato.
