A new addition to the Pattaya dining scene is now open, "Harlan Goldstein’s Comfort" - although it is likely to be at a price. One of Hong Kong's foremost chefs over the last 26 years, Harlan Goldstein, has moved to just outside Pattaya by Mabphrachan Lake. On leaving Hong Kong, he was given a golden handshake of US$3 million, part of which he has used to set up the new restaurant.
The menu features 34 dishes – the best of the recipes Goldstein has picked up in 38 years of world travel, he says. From Italy there’s pappardelle with mushrooms, truffles and slow-cooked egg; from Mexico, pulled pork tacos; from America, slow-cooked Sriracha glazed pork ribs; and from Thailand, crispy soft shell crab with yellow curry and roti. He adds there will also be daily specials.
“The dining scene in Pattaya is like Hong Kong 30 years ago,” he says . . . Goldstein also says that he is happy to be back in the kitchen, unlike in Hong Kong where he was managing several restaurants at once.
