Siambury's on the Darkside

Did my weekly shopping and twice a month I stock up on food from Siambury`s.

Maybe I never checked all the fridges very carfully or they now have added some stuff from Italy:

What a delight.

No more Salami from the Friendship daylight robbers.

Looks lovely but delicious foods like that are off my heart friendly food list in that quantity. Great to have a good choice though. Enjoy.

I  buggered up my calf muscles tabbing up Khao Talo so stopped using the place. Instead I sometimes use https://expatfoodsthailand.com/shop/ It has a few Siamburies items ...

Nothing like a good bit of exercise but you don't have transport?

Sounds like Siamburi's is worth the visit.  When I lived in Hua Hin there were a few places I had to visit for British goods or quality meats, both were outside my idea of a walking tour.

I thought I'd check them out, but can't seem to register.  They sent me a password, but it keeps taking me back to the Login page.  So I said I lost my password and it  let me set my own, but the same thing happens.

I sent a reply email explaining it.  Hopefully it'll be sorted out soon.

Yep, I find their website and ordering process is a few steps behind Britishop but once you get in and work around the process there is much more available ( For the farang stuff that I buy anyway)

TBH, Siamburies isnt quite as it used to be for me, I can find same stuff in many shops now and so their novelty has worn off.  still a nice clean and large shop, but I alternate from one shop to another and you would be surprised on availabaility and price differences

Yup, FEVER is on one of my walking routes so I sometimes pop in there too.

The thing with Siamburys is the free delivery for bulk shopping.

Can you name the other shops? Beside Friendship, Foodland, Foodmart near View Talay 1 and the overpriced Tops I know only MG Asia nearby Sämis Restaurant which is a bit smallish and M&A Foodshop on Siam Country Club road.

Then there is the tiny Huay Yai Corner store which never has what I need in stock.

Fever is a bit off my shopping route.

There's a couple of expat food shops up Pratumnak way and one on Soi Siam Country Club road as well as two branches of Fever on/just off Bongkot and a more upmarket deli on Bongkot too.

Siamburis is still top of my list.

I value quality over price to some extent. That's just me.

In addition to the places that you mention, I shop frequently at Villa Market near The Avenues on Pattaya Second Road. They are one of the better places at stocking American goods.

I use several online places for beef products. These are not cheap, but the quality is good.

Retail stores of note IMO are:

Italian Deli only open Noon to 5. On Jomtien Second Road near soi 5. Very good fresh products.

The Pantry - Jomtien near where Thappraya makes the turn toward Jomtien Beach Road. Not as big as Siamburi, but a similar approach and for me much more convenient location.

I have heard that the manager of The Pantry was the former manager of Hemingway's, back when they had edible food. Also heard recently that the former manager of Laong's (used to be located at Jomtien 2nd Road and soi 9 (loved their rib nights)) is back in Thailand and taking over as the manager of Hemingway's. Maybe that will get that place turned around.
