Big Kahuna

Post by Up2u »

Surprised no one has mentioned this new restaurant in Pastrami on Rye's old location. Jim from the old POR has remodeled and opened this place with a Hawaiian theme but still has old favorites from POR. It is more for a breakfast and lunch place as it is not open late. Great sandwiches and burgers with a very friendly new staff. They have a FB page. I suspect the low prices are introductory as a burger, soft drink, and one side (try the baked beans!) was only 240 baht. They have added Thai food to the menu too.

Does anyone know if they deliver, as did Pastrami on Rye?

This evening RichLB, a non-board friend, and I tried Big Kahuna. We were all pleased.

I tried the Moco burger and really enjoyed it. They bake the hamburger buns right there on the premises - much better than before. The sandwiches also come with a side. I had the onion rings. They were good and crispy. The orders include a soft drink as part of the price.

We all enjoyed it and will be back.

For deliveries, Jim - the owner (If you've been there when it was Pastrami on Rye, you'll recognize him) said he'll start deliveries as soon as he can find a delivery person who he can rely on. So far, no luck.

I had the pancake breakfast there yesterday morning - very good and reasonably priced. I hope he gets his home delivery up and running soon. I used to order their Burger delivered in the evenings when I didn't feel like going out or cooking - along with one of their craft beers - porter being my favorite.

Big Kahuna has bitten the dust. This evening I passed by. It is closed and there is a big sign "Business for Sale" and a telephone number.

The 'For Sale' sign has been in place for a while now. As far as I can tell they still open during the day, but are closed before 5pm.
