We came across a recently opened international style restaurant in the heart of Jomtien – Eagle House, a charming modern style restaurant that offers both international with a nod towards Dutch cuisine - plus of course a wide range of authentic Thai food. Here, you will get a very warm welcome from Thai lady proprietor, Khun Pranee (Nee) and be invited to relax and enjoy a selection of executive chef Phet’s delicious culinary creations. This smartly decorated restaurant opened in late November, and is part of the luxury Eagle House guesthouse and bar located on both Sois 4 and 5 Jomtien Beach Road. Being open from the early morning, the menu offers a good selection of Breakfasts, Snacks and Sandwiches priced from 75 baht for a well filled Ham and Cheese Sandwich to 175 baht for a popular Frikandellen Special – that is two Dutch style Sausages covered with the traditional works on them - i.e. Onion, Mayonnaise and Ketchup! (That is actually very tasty!) Good sized Burgers with Fries are available from 95 baht (Cheeseburger and Fries is 105 baht). For the healthy conscious there is a fine selection of fresh Salads from 65 baht for Mixed to 145 baht for the classic Caesar Salad. Homemade Soups are available at 95 baht, and 135 baht for the specialty Goulash Soup. From the main course menu one can enjoy an assortment of Starters from 85 baht for Spring Rolls to 195 for Dutch Cheese Croquettes. Main meat dishes include Pork, Chicken and Beef recipes from 185 baht for Chicken fillet to 245 baht for T-bone steak. All served with a choice of sauces, Fries, Salad and potatoes. There is an option of Salmon steak (245 baht) or Ruby Fish fillet (195 baht) that come with various sauces, such as Dill, Butter and Lemon and White Wine. Pasta is also available at 135 baht for Spaghetti Bolognese or Carbonara. The Thai section of the menu is quite extensive and offers popular dishes from 85 baht for fried noodles or rice and meat, to 250 baht for a whole fried Fish. (Tom Yam Khung is 150 baht a serving).
Together with the excellent Frikandellen Special, we sampled for appetizers the Chicken Sate (125 baht); tender pieces of Chicken with a traditional Indonesian Sate Sauce recipe. This was followed by a very good tasting Shrimp Cocktail (145 baht) with a generous amount of freshly cooked Shrimps and a fine Marie Rose sauce and Salad. For the main course we chose a lovely delicate tasting Ruby Fish with Dill Cream Sauce. For meat we tried a nice juicy Tenderloin Beef Fillet steak with Pepper Cream Sauce, which is good value at 195 baht with all the trimmings. Then we had to try the house Dutch specialty – the Hollandse Stampot (195 baht). There are two varieties (we tried a bit of both) mashed Potatoes served with Endives, and the other with Carrots and Onions, served with Meatballs and Braaduuarst (Pork Sausage). Quite delicious! The main Desserts offered are light and tasty Dutch Pancakes from 65 baht with Sugar or Jam to 105 baht with Ice Cream.
Drinks include Heineken beer at 75 baht a bottle and Singha at 65 baht. Bon Coffee is served at 50 baht a cup and good Irish Coffee at 180 baht. Fine food at fine prices! The Eagle House restaurant is located at 75/66 M 12 on Soi 4, Jomtien Beach Road; open every day from 8am until 11pm. Telephone: 038 059 576.
