First Greek Restaurant Opens in Pattaya

Saturday 22nd August, 2009, - The first Greek restaurant to serve a genuine Souvlaki dinner has opened in Central Pattaya, and naturally it is owned by a Greek national named Paul. However, Paul is a man of the world, having lived for many years in America and worked as a real estate broker, but he was farsighted enough to leave three years before the recent financial and property collapse.

He returned to Greece for a few years, but sensing that things were not getting any easier, he looked around the world and liked what he saw in Pattaya. He purchased “The Halfway Inn” on Soi XXX off Third Road in Central Pattaya, which is a guest house with a very homely multi storey building, having a nice little ground floor restaurant. Being Greek, Paul knew that Greek food was the way to go, as it is surprising to find that there are over one thousand Greek nationals living in the greater Pattaya area, but other customers are also enchanted by Paul’s souvlakis.

So exactly what is a Greek Souvlaki? – Firstly it is a long skewer with tender pieces of pork and / or chicken, plus selected tasty vegetables, all of which are slowly grilled and basted with butter.

Then on your plate, there is a large portion of traditional Greek “Pitta Bread” covered with fresh green lettuce, tomato slices and cucumber, plus fried potato chips as a finishing touch. The souvlakis sound delicious, and they are, all for the special price of only 69-baht, which Paul jokingly commented is a price that sort of sticks in your mind.

Paul is a very amiable host, and loves to smoke his pipe and converse with his customers when the occasion arises. If you turn off Third Road into Soi-21, the “The Halfway Inn” is past “PP-Massage” and quite near Soi Buakao, so drop in to see Paul and his staff, who will treat you like one of the family.
