Land of Smiles

Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.

Needed to go the company's factory for a customer visit, factory is in Rayong about 130km from central Bangkok. The Rayong local sales lady brought me to a very popular noodle shop for lunch in Ban Beung. Ban Beung is a district of Chonburi province bordering Rayong.

This noodle shop is very famous for 2 things
(1) starting a style of noodle where shredded cuttle fish and dry prawns is added and minced pork is flatten. This styler of noodle become known as "Ban Beung Noodle"
(2) Probably the best crab balls you can find
There are many "Ban Beung Noodle" copycats around Thailand but this the original known as Ta Kun Kang Restaurant

Here's the location https://goo.gl/maps/NxiUCNLBNFA2

Whenever I have to stay in Pattaya, I will make a point to visit a nice Italian restaurant known as Trattoria Pizzeria Toscana. Main reason is this restaurant grows most of its vegetables (organic) and rare most of the animals the meat we have in the restaurant.

This is a great restaurant with lots of variety and having their own wood fired oven for very delicious pizzas. Food is also inexpensive, all the food for this meal (without the 2 bottles of wine) costs only 3355 baht or less than $140
