Beefeater Steakhouse & Pub

Popular Pattaya Steak Restaurants

Popular Pattaya Steak Restaurants

Popular Pattaya Steak Restaurants I’m highlighting all offer excellent Australian export quality beef as well as some other delightfull dishes. Above is the Beefeater located on Soi Diana near 2nd Road in Pattaya. You can enter the restaurant from directly from Soi Diana Inn, or from the Central Shopping Arcade off 2nd Road (across from Mike Shopping Mall).  Phone Number: 038-720-926.

Fillet Steak – ranging from 150g to 400g

Ribeye Steak – 250g

One of the things I like about Beefeater is the fact they offer fillet steak in a multiple of sizes so you can order to suit your appetite.

Beefeater Location

Opposite the rear of Mike shopping mall.

Toast Skagen at beefeater

Popular Pattaya Steak Restaurants

The Beefeater owner/chef hails from Scandinavia which is a bonus for me as toast skagen is one of my favourite entres, in fact I sometimes drop in for lunch on the weekend & order two. 🙂

I rate Beefeater 4 Stars.

Patrick’s Belgium Steakhouse

Popular Pattaya Steak Restaurants

Terrific restaurant in an arcade opposite the Beefeater. Excellent Aussie steaks and the best Oxtail soup in Pattaya. I’m with Greg Clee and Hamish Elton.

Patricks

Popular Pattaya Steak Restaurants

The steak is always excellent, the only downside is they overcharge for wine.  I personally think the steaks here are better than the Beefeater, however one litre of house wine is grossly overpriced at B1200, compared to B700 at Beefeater.

Desert at Patricks

Popular Pattaya Steak Restaurants

Always a delight & difficult to choose between the crepe & the Belgium waffles. 🙂

I also rate Patricks 4 stars.

Steak & Co Soi Lenkee

Popular Pattaya Steak Restaurants

Only a 10 minutes walk from Patricks & the Beefeater, straight up So Diana, across Soi Buakaow into Soi Lengkee.

Steak & Co

Popular Pattaya Steak Restaurants

I assure you you will search for a long time in Pattaya to find a better steak. Aussie prime beef cooked to perfection. They serve only the finest improted Australian Black Angus, Wagyu and USDA Prime Beef. Also a wide selection of Wines, Imported or Craft beer to accompany your meal.

Soi Buakaow just turn into Soi Lengkee.

I rate Steak & Co 5 stars.

 Siamese Cuisine in Naklua Road

Popular Pattaya Steak Restaurants

Opposite Woodlands about 200 metres from the Dolphin roundabout this excellent restaurant serves a very good steak as well as many other dishes.

Enoshima island Kanagawa Japan

October 7, 2015 by David Herd

Nice seaside village.

Enoshima island Kanagawa Japan

Enoshima island Kanagawa Japan

 Enoshima island Kanagawa Japan is 4 km in circumference, at the mouth of the Katase River south of Tokyo and Yokohama. What took me there you may well ask, well after spending several hours in Kamakura exploring the wonderful temples we decided to take a 30 minute train ride to see where Japan will hold the sailing venue for the 2020 Summer Olympics.

600-metre-long (2,000 ft) bridge

Enoshima island Kanagawa Japan

You have to walk or drive across this long bridge to get to the island. The area is home to some of the closest sandy beaches to Tokyo and Yokohama.

Fujisawa

Enoshima island Kanagawa Japan


They tell me this is a very popular holiday destination.

My friends Kayo and Hamish

Enoshima island Kanagawa Japan

Kayo is my friend who lives in Tokyo, she was our tour guide showing us the wonderful temples in Kamakura then on to Enoshima. I can’t believe the distance we walked today, 22,047 steps which was 16.79 kilometres. 🙂

The village

Enoshima island Kanagawa Japan

There is quite a steep hill with shops on both sides, people come to this island to walk the pathways that lead to several ancient temples, botanical garden, museums, parks, scenic overlooks, and a modern lighthouse at the top of Enoshima island Japan.

Friendly shopkeepers

Enoshima island Kanagawa Japan

A big smile from the shop keeper.

I met some locals

Enoshima island Kanagawa Japan

Happy guys on Enoshima island Japan.

They were very happy guys

Enoshima island Kanagawa Japan

In summer the mainland and beach areas of Enoshima city is all about sea sports, in particular surfing, sailing and jet boating. The surf  isn’t great by most standards, but during Summer it is the place to be seen for the trendy younger crowd as it is so conveniently close to Tokyo, providing an excuse for tens of thousands of funky Japanese to strut around with bleached hair and chocolate-bronze skin.  

Top of the hill

You can climb even further but I was too lazy. 🙂

Looking down to the bridge at Enoshima.

BBQ corn

  There are lots of street stalls where you can sample the delights of low price Japanese food.  

Not to mention great Asahi beer.

Asahi

A truly great beer.

   

My lovely friend Kayo

Enoshima island Kanagawa Japan

Kayo is the perfect guide, we met in Australia in 2005 &last year when I was in Tokyo she showed me all around Yokohama, and this year it was the wonderful temples in Kamakura.

Time to catch the train back to Kamakura station & change for Tokyo.
