Restaurant Review

I'm not sure when it started, but restaurants offering special meal deals are now all the rage in Pattaya. At the top of the list is the all-you-can-eat deal. At the top of that list is the all-you-can-eat-for-99-baht deal. The king of all restaurants in the 99-baht deal is a place on Third Road (directly across from Excite Disco) called "Eat Alls".

Open 6 nights a week (closed Mondays), Eat Alls has 6 different all you can nights all for 99 baht. Tonight was all-you-can-eat lasagna/ziti.

One outstanding feature is that Eat Alls actually has ricotta cheese in their lasagna/ziti recipes, which is prohibitively expensive here in Thailand. However, Bobby (the owner from New York City) has circumvented that problem by making his own ricotta cheese on the premises.

Actually, everything is made from scratch on the premises: The noodles, the sauces, the bread, all of it. That's how they manage to turn a profit. (That and, of course, beverage sales.)

They also have a 99-baht steak dinner if you don't want the all-you-can-eat special du jour, and there is a selection of Thai food as well.

Personally, I enjoyed the food. It wasn't outstanding, but I got my 99 baht worth. It's not a place I'd want to eat every day, but I'll be going back again.
