Food is Life | Pattaya Food Scene with #AakanshaKaRaj, Thailand Diaries

Hola Top Cats!

How’s the past week been for y’all?
 
Mine has been all about warm welcome dinners, endless walks with hubsbubs, lip smacking binge dates with none other than hubsbubs, lots of reading, researching & signing up for dream classes, planning a dreamy honeymoon, etc.
Amidst all the settling in and happy squeaks, I thought why not share my experience with (the four letter word I live for) “FOOD” scene in Pattaya, Thailand.

Like I mentioned earlier, it’s a bummer that Pattaya is known for all the shady things, when one can experience so much more there. Anyway, being the foodies that we are … R and I took our meal planning (during our Minimoon in Pattaya) very seriously.

After putting time, effort and Om Nom Nom, here I have the three fabulous restaurants you must not miss when in Pattaya!



Silver Lining:

Silver Lining, Pattaya, Thailand.
A contemporary Japanese and Italian eatery that will blow your mind away with it’s plushy ambience, flashy cocktails, immaculate food (quality, oooh la la), prompt service and stellar location. Pretty much everything on their menu must be tried!!! Here’s what R and I gorged on…
P.S… Their cocktails are made like art, truly.

Located on Beach Road, this restaurant is best described in three words- dramatic, eclectic and unique. It’s awe-inspiring architecture will make you want to visit this space over and over again. I mean, which place has a bed by the bar to lie down and indulge in some Cocktail hour? Oh, and did I mention that it has a walk-in wine cellar with an impressive list of over 160 branded wines from all over the world (including bottles of rare Bordeaux)?
