    I hope Fuji Japanese restaurant has survived.

    Their food is the closest you'll get to the real thing outside of Japan.

    I plan to visit Big C in Pattaya tomorrow and will let you know if the Fuji there is still in action.

    Jai and I love the smoked tuna salad they serve with wasabi (my favorite).

    I love Fuji. I used to buy a couple of donuts and have a coffee in the little coffee shop to the side of the mall entrance afterwards. And the motorbike ride home along Beach Road wasn't bad either. There's no reason it hasn't survived a447, it's a large chain and not reliant on tourists..
    Fuck I Miss Pattaya.

    The talk-of-the-town has been the new Taco Bell by Royal Garden.

    Too many more of these fast-food eateries from the West and our beloved slim Thai boys are going to be sporting pot bellies.

    As a bit of a shopaholic I thought I was in heaven when I first went to
    Central Festival.

    As it turned out, there wasn't a lot that interested me, but I loved all the restaurants.

    My friend and I had a set routine. We'd go there for dinner every night - Fuji was his favourite - and then wander over to Starbucks when we sat and chatted for an hour or so before going back to the hotel.

    Holding a conversation with him for so long every night over coffee was easy, as he has an impressive general knowledge and a wide variety of interests. His English is also fantastic.

    I miss those times in Pattaya so much!

    I was in Central today and as MFAS says it's quite busy after the reopening. I had five chores to do: buy a new kettle, alarm clock, vests, pens and breakfast cereal, all duly ticked off one by one. I expect you were dying to know that. I hardly ever eat there. There was a Lebanese restaurant I liked, now gone; also a Turkish one, gone too I think. Empty premises are not an uncommon sight in present-day Pattaya. As for Japanese food, no thanks, yuk, yuk and thrice yuk. I don't particularly want to live to be a hundred anyway. I returned home with my bag of goodies and a great sense of accomplishment. My life as a not-quite-as-sprightly-as-I-was expat resembles what is often said about army life in wartime: long periods of not doing much interspersed with moments of extreme excitement.

    The best thing about Central is its restaurants....Fuji, MK are our favourites, though I was disappointed that the latter's 20.00 dance wasn't performed for us last time. I loved the contrast between the slightly-shy guys and the wholehearted enthusiasm of the girls. MK's duck is the best I've had anywhere in Thailand.

    However, Central's restaurant selection is outshone by that of Terminus 21, which has two (perhaps "had" may be more accurate) high-class Thai places which served dishes I've seen nowhere else in Pattaya. Apart perhaps from the old PIC Kitchen in Second Road.

    Ah, MK. How could I have forgotten?

    I agree with you, Oliver. It's awesome - even if you have to line up to get in.
