Best Pattaya butcher Big C Extra

Best Pattaya butcher Big C Extra in Pattaya Klang. Thai beef & lamb leaves a lot to be desired compared to Australia & New Zealand, and here at Big C they offer great quality imported meat at similar prices to what you would pay in Australia. Perhaps the price may be 10 or 15% more however I am happy to pay a premium to get the beat product.

Great choice of quality meat

Best Pattaya butcher Big C Extra I don’t eat a lot of steak these days preferring to focus on lamb cutlets, chps and the huge lamb shanks here at Big C Extra.

Lamb Shanks

Best Pattaya butcher These two shanks weigh  1.2 kilo for B550 or $20 aud. I either roast them or use a slow cooker, either way they are delicious. The good news is they are so large I get two meals out of each shank, I always bake extra vegetables so the following day lunch is cold roast lamb with bubble and squeak, life does not get much better than that. 🙂

Friends arrive for dinner

Best Pattaya butcher Big C Extra Here are my friends Larry Krausz and Hamish Elton enjoying roast lamb shanks with vegetables & washed down with red wine from Australia.

The view from my condo on the 17th floor of Markland in Beach Road Pattaya. After slow cooking for around 5 hours the meat just falls off the bone.

Perhaps you prefer baked

Chops and Shanks from Best Pattaya butcher

Best Pattaya butcher Big C Extra My standard order which gives me six great meals for B800 or $32 aud. The chops are so thick I only need to cook two with some vegetables and gravy.

Harbor new Pattaya Shopping Mall

April 12, 2016 by David Herd

New shopping mall

Harbor new Pattaya Shopping Mall Harbor new Pattaya Shopping Mall next to Foodland in Pattaya Klang. A huge complex with lots of shops & restaurants plus a modern supermarket. The photo above was taken in October 2015 while it was still under construction.

April 12 2016

Harbor new Pattaya Shopping Mall The centre is 90% completed, bigger than Big C and lots of screaming kids. Many good Japanese restaurants and all the usual coffee shops.

Big modern supermarket

Harbor new Pattaya Shopping Mall I was impressed how big the centre was plus the supermarket was excellent. Lots of car parking at the rear of the building.

Postal service

Harbor new Pattaya Shopping Mall Many different shops as you would expect.

I had an excellent prawn teppanyaki and miso soup for lunch.

Another Japanese restaurant.

Harbor new Pattaya Shopping Mall I’m guessing there must be a lot of Japanese people living in the area because of the number of Japanese restaurants here. Just down the road 200 meters is Big C Extra, here you will be able to buy the best imported beef & lamb from Australia and New Zealand.

Tuna Ichiban

Harbor new Pattaya Shopping Mall My friend Geoff Robinson made this comment after visiting Tuna Ichiban, “Another great recommendation David Herd best sushi I’ve had in Thailand”.

Lots of things for kids

Harbor new Pattaya Shopping Mall Apart from this monster there is a huge kids playground on the top floor, make sure you take your earplugs. There is also two floors of phones and computers similar to Tukcom.
