You really do get the best of both worlds living in Pattaya, and for that matter other expat dense regions of Thailand. You are never restricted to only Thai food but can eat from any nationality from all over the world.
It has been a hugely liberating culinery experience living in Thailand as I have tried food from all over the world and now have a few favourites, German being one of them.
For many years now I have made the Thai Garden Resort buffet a place I visit at least once a month. They have a different themed buffet every evening from 6pm, so of course I have tried them all, and my favourite is the German buffet every Thursday.
Not only is the food very good but the ambience and environment very nice too. The best way for me to showcase this place is via a vlog:
