Three-in-one and all winners!

25 years since it opened, Baan Rim Pa has won more fine dining awards than any other. In its cliffside teak house, impeccably prepared Royal Thai Cuisine is just part of a fine dining experience. Panoramic views over Patong Bay are complemented by surf crashing onto the rocky beach, mingling with Dr. Prasert Khunthongchan and Broadway standards – wafting from the piano bar. Then there’s the cellar with its 300 bottles of the finest wines from all corners of the globe, winner of Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence every year since 2002. Baan Rim Pa’s private dining room, comfortably seats 30 for dinner or 50 for cocktail parties. Whether it’s a romantic dinner for two, hosting visitors or a special party, it’s no surprise that they call Baan Rim Pa “simply the finest in the Kingdom”. Next door, Joe’s Downstairs is a different world. Crisp white décor, long terrazzo bar and outdoor dining decks just feet away from the ocean are part of what make Joe’s unique. Award-winning Chef Aaron Hooper’s distinctive menu combines New World cuisine with Asian and Western style tapas. Enjoy tapas as a snack, a meal or a prelude to your à la carte dinner, which could include Alaskan Crab, Live Maine Lobster or the finest imported steaks – all, as you’d expect, accompanied by your choice from Joe’s Wine Spectator Award-winning cellar. A favourite haunt of celebrities – and the island choice for weddings and birthday parties with a touch of class – Joe’s is unbeatable, whether for a light lunch, sunset cocktails or a fine dinner. 20 years and many awards on, Da Maurizio Bar Ristorante (next door to Joe’s) continues to offer discerning diners the finest contemporary Italian cuisine. Almost on the rocks, this is one of the most stunning settings on Phuket – its spectacular backdrop a favourite for wedding parties up to 100. Chef/owner Maurizio Laureri, known for his wine dinners with their stimulating menus, changes the restaurant menu every month. Choose live local fish, crab, lobster and other shell fish, homemade pastas, exotic salads and imported delicacies such as black and white truffle. And, of course, the Wine Spectator Award-winning cellar.

Two Chefs Patong

Thai & International Tel : 0 7634 4914

Two Chefs’ secret of success is serving up some of the most delicious food on the island at affordable prices. Service staff are friendly and eager to give recommendations, while remaining professional and unobtrusive. In Phuket, there are three Two Chefs Bar & Grill restaurant outlets, in Karon Beach, Kata Beach, Kata Center. These restaurants have been driven forward by the same management team for 15 years, which goes some way to explaining the reputation for excellence the brand has achieved, as well as their loyal following among Phuket residents and regular overseas visitors alike. Two Chefs Patong was buzzing when we arrived at 8.30pm – a good sign, especially when others nearby were very quiet! If you arrive by taxi, get dropped at the door, but if you’re coming by car you’ll need to hunt for parking and may need a short walk back. Seating is all open air with fans. At the back of the restaurant there’s an acoustic guitarist strumming away with a selection of middle-of-the-road songs, adding to the open air ambience and complementing Patong’s passing people parade. We got stuck into a couple of great cocktails: a raspberry Margarita and a sizable mug/jug of Mojito, mixed exactly as I like it. Then our starters arrived really quickly – mine a wonderfully creamy Lobster bisque flavoured with saffron and served with garlic bread, my partner’s a tasty Toast Skagen (prawns in mayonnaise with dill and lemon on toast). For main course, we shared a combination plate of Ribs, chicken legs, crispy potato wedges, salad and dipping sauces and a Wooden platter with grilled salmon, sautéed spinach, mashed potato oven baked with red wine and lemon and thyme hollandaise sauce. Superb and perfect food to share! For dessert it was Apple pie à la Two Chefs with vanilla sauce and a Crème brûlée – both perfectly excellent. Easy listing live music, efficient service with attentive staff, a huge variety of menu choices – and a chance to try Scandinavian food at its best. Lucky for us they’ve opened in Patong. Not so lucky for the surrounding restaurants... 9

Bliss Beach Club

10

International(Incl Thai) Tel: 0 7651 0150

This was my first beach club and it was impressive: right on the beach, relaxed atmosphere – and lots of natural shade. Time your arrival right and, if you look a little to the south, you can view a spectacular sunset over the headland. We headed to the bar for cocktails – a Blissjito and a Caipiroblisski – tongue twisters to say the least! After downing the cocktails, we moved to our table with a view of the ocean through the trees and sound of waves lapping at the beach. Starters were Taco-Shimi (seared yellow fin Ahi tuna with avocado relish in a bite-sized taco shell, topped with a touch of wasabi cream) and contrasting bite-sized Bangkok Nachos (rare Wagyu striploin, avocado, ‘nam jim jaew’ and smoked jalapeno chilli), all served on warmed rock slabs. Delicious and innovative creations! Each dish complemented the other much the same as a mini surf-and-turf combination. To go with our starters we ordered a bottle Sicilian Sedara by Donna Fugata, a full bodied masculine red wine. We eased back into a lighter-on-the-palate Tuscan Sangiovese Rigoleto by Colle Massari to accompany the main courses. We gave the Euro Burger a try. A tasty combination of prime ground beef, goat’s cheese, Mediterranean olive/pickle relish, rocket salad and oven-dried tomatoes, accompanied by garlic Parmesan fries. This one is for big appetites! Then it was Seabass Fillet with polenta, Parmesan, pumpkin seed, chimmi churri (finely-chopped parsley, minced garlic, olive oil, oregano and white vinegar) and fresh tomatoes. By coincidence, another outstanding surf-and-turf deal! Finally, we tucked into a unique Peach & Crème Brulée Napoléon Green Tea Anglaise with phyllo pastry – and finished with espressos to wake ourselves up for the drive home. Bliss has just what we expect from a sophisticated tropical holiday destination: it’s right on the beach, has an extensive drinks list, a truly innovative menu, perfectly pitched mood music and plenty of space inside (it does rain sometimes) and outside. And lucky expats get to enjoy this all year round… Don’t forget Bliss is not just for adults! They cater brilliantly for families with kids – and have a great kids’ menu.

Trilogy

Italian Thai Steaks & Grills Tel: 0 7660 9888

at Dream Phuket Hotel & Spa We arrived to find a convenient valet service, so it was just hop out and hand over the keys and be escorted to VU, the rooftop bar, for pre-dinner cocktails. So far all seamless and convenient. For our cocktails we both chose VU signature cocktails Clever not Clover and Mango Gala, both. Subtle and unique, they went down well! We shared a Big Kahuna Salad of crisp greens, grilled chilled chicken, juicy pineapple, red peppers, green beans, red onion, red cabbage and cucumbers – all tossed in sweet and tangy vinaigrette, layered between crispy wontons then finished with sesame seeds. A nicely chilled glass each of Matua Valley Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand’s Marlborough Sound was the perfect accompaniment. Once the sunset had done its thing and we had devoured our salad, we took the lift down to Trilogy restaurant, overlooking the pool, where we opted for outside seating, but undercover. It was a beautiful balmy evening, ideal for al fresco dining – though an air conditioned dining area was an option. I started in on Lobster Bisque, with sizeable chunks of lobster and a reduced ‘soup’ with brandy, while my partner chose the French Onion Soup with cheese croutons. Then it was Surf ‘n Turf and Boston Lobster for our main course – both perfectly prepared and equisitely presented. We continued with wine by the glass, this time a Yellow Tail Shiraz from Australia. The night was still young and we’d heard that Indulge was another venue at Dream to savour! So off we went to a nearby lift and down to the ground floor. Plush leather seating and jazz / blues sounds set the mood in this gentlemen’s ‘club’. We capped our evening here with a couple of espressos, a glass of Hennessy XO, a Montecristo Edmundo cigar, a Grand Marnier – and a Tiramisu. We were in heaven! Dream is an easy place to stay and a hard place to leave. As our evening drew to a close, we started thinking about doing it all again – but in reverse order! We could start at Indulge for a light tapas snacks, move to Trilogy for a midafternoon light lunch, then maybe a swim followed by the pool bar, then afterwards up to VU for sunset cocktails and desserts. Now there’s an idea…

Karon Beach Square

Various Tel: 0 7639 6139

Only metres from Karon Beach, Mövenpick’s Karon Beach Square is the only complete ‘dining and chill’ destination of its type in the south of Phuket, with four very different dining options, a great range of local and imported beers, a fine selection of premium wines and spirits and a professional mixologist – who doubles as a juggler! Café Studio is a great place to relax and the perfect place to laze away an afternoon. Just watch the world go by or plug in your laptop in the library and take advantage of the free WiFi! Whether you’re there for just a few cool drinks or a refreshing feast, you won’t be disappointed. Marinated Seafood, Greek Salad and Pia-Diavolo Pizza are typical menu items. For dinner, wander over to El Gaucho for a Brazilian Churrasco treat, where the steaks are served “off the sword” – and they do mean a sword! Choose à la carte or go for the all-in Churrasco option, helping yourself to an abundant array of salads and choosing your meats from the sword. The succulent tenderloin is ‘pick of the bunch’, but musttry other meats include crocodile, chicken, rib-eye, T-bone, pork fillet and pork spare ribs. Sauces to go with the meats include Brazilian pepper, mushroom and bitter Chimichurri sauce (originally an Argentinian concoction). Next on the agenda, if you fancy oriental instead of Latin American, upstairs you’ll find Orient Asia. Here, the décor speaks of Asian influences with red wall panels, subtle back lighting and contrasting dark wood furniture. Decorative Chinese urns and bottles occupy the shelves along the walls. Here you’ll be pampered with Asian delights such as Thai Warm Shrimp Salad with lemongrass-mint leaf, Tom Kha Gai (spicy chicken and herbs cooked in coconut milk soup), Roast Duck Saigon or Steamed Whole Sea Bass with Lime garnished with chilli, garlic and coriander. For a change of pace and style, move on over to “upbeat and buzzing” Mint, with its lively ambience and not-tooloud music. While this is a very much a family orientated restaurant, there’s a lot going on, including frequent theme nights. Dinner is a choice of à la carte or help-yourself from the well-stocked carvery and buffet.

Wanon Restaurant

Thai Tel: 0 7639 0189

at Hanuman World Wow! What a location! In the middle of the jungle near Chalong but easy to find, Wanon Restaurant at Hanuman World is truly a hidden oasis. Parking is easy with a large car park and regular shuttle. The wood and bamboo structure, with high vented roof, is impressive – as are the rainforest plants placed everywhere in the bar and restaurant areas. We were seated with views of massive, ancient trees covered with vines and creepers and a forest floor densely carpeted with lush tropical plants. We started lunch with a couple of cooling fresh coconuts as we settled in and checked the menu. Then we shared Vegetable spring rolls, Fish cakes and Fried prawns in breadcrumbs with a selection of dipping sauces. As it was a ‘working day’, we ordered fresh juices and sparkling mineral waters to accompany our meal. We carried on into our main course, sharing Prawns in tamarind, Crispy wild boar in curry with string beans and Fried venison with garlic and pepper. The menu was heavily orientated towards traditional Thai food and in particular foods of the forest. Fortunately we could tame the hot dishes down by ordering “mai phed” (not spicy)! There’s also a western menu for those who do not enjoy Thai food. We left just enough room for coffee and desserts and stayed with the Thai theme with Mango and sticky rice. Wanon Restaurant is not only surrounded by forest, it also has several Hanuman World zip lines and cable tracks running all around the restaurant high in the trees. We were entertained as we ate by ‘passersby’ zooming around and disappearing into the forest in a blink of the eye. We’ll plan our visit better next time so we have time try the sky walk in the tree tops and the zip lines flying through the canopy. Hanuman World is an eco-friendly project, where the construction and development has had low impact on the surrounding forest; they even planted additional trees (of the right type!) to improve the experience. Wanon is an easy place to just have a good meal – or to have an adventure too. 13

Rock Salt

14

Mediterranean & seafood Tel: 0 7638 0020

It’s easy valet parking at The Nai Harn and just a short walk to what must be one of Phuket’s closest restaurants to the beach and rocks. Our table had waves slapping across the rocks nearby, with the beach just metres away. We arrived in time for an impressive sunset with an uninterrupted view of Nai Harn Beach, Cape Promthep and the Andaman Sea. Two Lady Nai Harn signature cocktails (Chalong Bay rum, limoncello, mango juice, lime juice, honey and mint) were a good start to the evening. Cocktails were accompanied by bread sticks with Baba Ganoush and olive oil dips. We started with a Rock Salt Platter (taramasalata, hummus, fava, tzatziki and lamb kofta on pita bread), and a Ceviche (white snapper, lemon, olive oil, fresh mint and coriander). We chose a Monsoon Valley White Shiraz Rosé, made entirely in Thailand. A light, fruity wine that proved the perfect complement to our meals. After a comfortable interval, our main course arrived on two three-tier stainless platters. For me the Rawai Sea Gypsy Platter (mussels, calamari, tiger prawns, blue swimmer crabs in yellow curry with slices of lemon, lime and seafood sauce). For my partner an Andaman Platter (sea shrimps, tiger prawns, Fine de Claire oysters and steamed Rawai clams in chilli, ginger, garlic and coconut milk, served with garlic bread, red wine shallot vinegar, tabasco, fresh lemon and oil). The portions were generous to say the least! Dessert was a Coconut Pannacotta (with fruit salad and homemade passion fruit ice cream) that looked good and tasted divine. My partner’s reluctance gave way and an order for one became two. It was just too hard to resist. Rock Salt gives a sense of privacy with little alcoves, different levels and comfortable loungers, while the service team is discreet but attentive. It was also good to see a restaurant built around existing trees instead of cutting them down. This restaurant has it all: perfect location, cosy setting, diverse menu to suit every budget and great food and service. Rock Salt should be at the top of your ‘give-it-a-try’ list.

Cosmo Restaurant

at the Nai Harn My beer turned up in its own ice bucket – a nice touch – and my partner got stuck into a Lady Nai Harn cocktail (Chalong Bay Rum, Limoncello, mango juice, lime juice and mint), while we enjoyed the impressive panorama of the yachts in Nai Harn Bay and the near-perfect sunset. Chef Kevin Fawkes came to our table and offered some advice for starters. We followed his direction and took the salad of Line-caught seared yellow fin tuna, garden greens, avocado, watermelon with ponzu citrus dressing and the Sautéed hand-dived Hokkaido scallops with Masago caviar, wasabi and sea vegetable salad. The starters came with a basket of bread and three dipping sauces. We then shared a platter of Black mussels with chili, coriander and coconut milk, followed by a tangy hand-made Nai Harn bakery sorbet. For our main course we shared a surf and turf combination of Australian Hereford prime pasture-raised beef tenderloin, Rawai sea gypsy Calamari and Tiger prawns accompanied by Savoy black pepper sauce, Béarnaise sauce, lobster butter and beach watercress. This was cooked at our table on a charcoal grill and served on large slate plates. Absolutely fantastic! We went for wine by the glass to ‘test’ the novel argon gas-injected system that ensures a wide variety of wines can be sold by the glass. We enjoyed a Fontanasanta Manzoni Bianco 2013, that was not unlike a top Burgundy white. It’s worth noting that all the wines at Cosmo are selected and rated by internationally-acclaimed wine critic James Suckling. We managed to make room for desserts, opting for Caramelised banana and yogurt cake with banana beignets, milk chocolate and banana soup and Tahitian vanilla baked cheesecake with raspberry sorbet and Muscovado crisp. Both delicate presentations. If you’re looking for a superior and entertaining culinary experience, Cosmos will stimulate all your senses and help you discover more. An impressive location in stylish surroundings with an unbeatable view, staff who made us feel like royalty and a chef ready to share his passion for food. Faultless from beginning to end! 15

@ Amatara Phuket Resort & Wellness How about a luxurious spread of the freshest seafood, meats and vegetables prepared using innovative and unique cooking techniques? An amazing meal that will etch itself in memory for a long time... Combine that with fine wines from around the world and a stunning location dining al fresco with views of the Andaman Sea. You’ll be unable to resist! The recently opened Amatara Phuket Resort & Wellness boasts an exquisite setting at which to savour such an occasion. Executive Chef Justin Baziuk plans and steers the evening on a culinary journey that begins with sourcing the best and freshest ingredients from all over the world. Beef has been farm raised and grass or grain fed, the poultry is organic and the seafood caught fresh daily, while produce is obtained from organic farmers. Finger foods, breads and sweets are all made in house. Chef Justin – renowned for his passion in all aspects of cooking (and indeed his passion in explaining it!) – served an unparalleled array of appetizers, main courses and desserts. Scallops, scotch single malt salmon, blue crab ravioli and foie gras marked the beginning, exhibiting an intricate combination of ingredients, perfect on the palate and elegantly presented. The main course featured top-notch quality meats from Australia – pedigree Hereford and Black Angus beef and lamb – cooked to medium-rare perfection. Side dishes and fine wines were glorious accompaniments. The irresistable sweet treats included a French-style cheesecake and an assortment of chocolate treasures beautifully crafted. Not forgetting the between-courses palate cleanser: fruit sherbet and Bailey’s ice cream. Perfect! Top quality ingredients, on which Chef Justin has based some outstanding dishes, together with flair in preparation and presentation combine to create a memorable occasion. Along with superb hospitality and a peaceful and idyllic setting, the recipe is there for an elegant and unmatched evening.

Boathouse

Thai & French Tel: 0 7633 0015

Wine & Grill Kata Boathouse has been a Kata Beach landmark since the last century and has had several renovations since first opening, the latest in 2012. The location is first class, right on the beach, waves practically lapping at your toes. I‘ve dined there often over the past 20 years and have always been impressed. A brighter and more airy Boathouse today offers alfresco dining on the balcony overlooking the beach, inside dining still with spectacular views and upstairs on the terrace, which has its own air-conditioned dining room that can be booked for private dinners. Now to the food… We kicked off with a selection of amuses bouche compliments of the chef, followed by Lobster Bisque Velouté (flambéed with brandy along with generous portions of lobster and garlic bread). My partner chose Escargots (classic French snails with garlic butter and parsley). Between courses, I chose a melt-in-the-mouth Pan-fried duck foie gras with sautéed wild mushrooms and port reduction. To accompany our meal we took a sweet and fruity Jurançon Famille Castel 2009, which made for a refreshing combination that served us well all evening, right through to desserts. For main course I chose the Trilogy of Rock Lobster (served with three sauces: green curry, Armagnac, Thermidor) – heavenly! My partner had the succulent Thailand Charolaise Beef. I had left room for Banana fritters and coconut ice cream and my more adventurous partner chose the Chocolate Praline (a chocolate monster with mouse, chocolate sponge cake, chunky flakes of chocolate and praline chocolate sauce). The Boathouse team were friendly and obviously trained to a high standard; many have worked there for 15 years. It’s really hard to go wrong at Boathouse. Excellent service, extensive top quality menu and wine list, delicious food and right on the beach with a view to die for, especially at sunset. Add to that the atmosphere with a live duo playing flute and piano, the lapping of the waves – and arguably the best wine cellar on the island – what more could you ask for...? ...well, this actually: they have a take-you-home service for guests who have drunk too much to drive safely. Collect your car next day. Smart move! And a local pick-up service too. 17

Seafood at Trisara

Seafood & Fusion Tel: 0 7631 0100

We arrived at peaceful Naiton Beach just before sunset and handed our car keys to the Trisara valet, boarded a golf cart and were driven through quiet alleyways to the beachfront bar, pool and restaurants. We started with cocktails outside, just a few metres from the beachside restaurant. I selected a Trisara Pisco Sour, claimed by Peru as its national drink, athough Chile also lays claim. My partner took the less contentious Passionfruit Margarita. While we considered our order, we enjoyed an amuse bouche followed by a bread tray with a selection of natural, garlic or black truffle homemade butter. I started with Smoked Salmon with avocado, brioche, yuzu, daikon and salmon caviar, while my partner chose Tuna ‘burnt’, with Phuket oyster, quinoa, seaweed, cucumber and with a grated sprinkling of Buddha’s Hand (a citrus fruit shaped like fingers). To accompany our meal we chose a semi-sweet Austrian Kracher Chardonnay (a beneficiary of the ‘noble rot’) and were drawn to the Oyster Bar between courses. We shared a Trio of Special Oysters comprising Fin de Claire with saffron, hollandaise, chives and deep fried shallots; Irish Oyster with white miso, white balsamic, citrus and black sesame; Belon Oyster with bergamot, horseradish and green apple. We followed that with Canadian Lobster poached with bone marrow, baby onion, sweet carrot jus and green asparagus and Tiger Prawns seared and served on a bed of Himalayan salt, accompanied by pilaf rice. Surprisingly, we still had room for desserts. While our choices may sound simple, they were not. We shared Coconut Culture and Cheese Cake and were mightily impressed. The service staff were courteous, efficient and, most important, friendly – taking care happily of our every need. I could not find words to adequately describe how good everything we sampled was, in both presentation and taste. Brilliant, superb, fantastic or even “blown away” are close, but inadequate. Maybe this: we struggled to eat slower just so we could enjoy longer. Everyone should experience the restaurant Seafood at Trisara at least once. It is quite simply, WOW!

Feature PHUKET’S FOOD-TRUCK REVOLUTION

Phuket’s

food-truck revolution

Over the past few months Phuket has been undergoing a food-truck revolution of sorts, a trend that is a welcome addition to the street food scene. Entrepreneurs and home chefs are making names for themselves with their mobile kitchens and the delicious unique food they serve up. Although already popular in the Western world, these culinary vehicles represent a fairly recent phenomenon in Phuket. The island (and indeed Thailand) has long had a vibrant street food scene, but the arrival of food trucks has upped the ante with regards to mobile culinary choices. It’s always been easy to buy your favourite Thai dish at street stalls, whether it’s noodle soup, phad thai or papaya salad, but nowadays – because of these newcomers – you can find such western delights as juicy cheeseburgers, thin-crust pizzas, Chicago-style hot dogs with loads of mustard and relish, sushi and Korean fried chicken, as well as carefully thought out exotic cocktails and local fruit smoothies.

76


www.wheretoeat-phuket.com

Feature PHUKET’S FOOD-TRUCK REVOLUTION

Local noodle soup food-trucks have also become popular, and are a staple at many of Phuket’s markets.

The food trucks scattered across the island are convenient and serve their fare up quickly – ideal for those who are super-hungry or workers who have limited time to dash out for a lunch break. They’re also on the scene late in the evening, which quite literally makes for a great midnight snack. You’ll come across them simply by driving along the west coast of the island. In both beach neighborhoods of Kata and Karon, there are vintage Volkswagen campers that have been converted into trendy cocktail trucks which also serve fresh fruit, healthy smoothies, and simple snacks. Patong plays host to a very hip burger truck with a modern feel to it; you’ll find it parked on Bangla Road until the wee hours of the morning. The staff members are young and friendly, serving a variety of beef and chicken burgers with French fries and onion rings. Take our advice and try to get there as soon as they open as there always seems to be a queue and the wait for a burger can be up to 20 minutes.

PHUKET’S FOOD-TRUCK REVOLUTION

Adorable cocktail carts serve up a wide variety of refreshments for those enjoying a bit of market shopping.

In the heart of Phuket Town, there’s a unique food truck serving up Korean fried chicken in a tiny courtyard that houses a full-on restaurant of the same nature behind it. The chicken is crispy, delicious and well worth a try. Further south, Chalong has a popular sushi truck that’s hard to miss as it’s decorated with Japanese samurai flags and almost always has a crowd around it. Most nights, the sushi truck is parked on Chaofa East Road, just north of Chalong Circle. Then there’s a food truck that parks on Soi Saiyuan on the way to Nai Harn Beach every afternoon until late evening. Serving cakes, cookies, strong coffee, fruit smoothies and cocktails, the girls that run the show are extremely friendly and lots of fun. They love meeting new customers and always have a big smile for returning ones. One fantastic fact about this food truck is that the girls are open to suggestions as to what to serve, food-wise. If the facilities in the truck allow them to make any requested or suggested dish, these girls will certainly try.

Feature PHUKET’S FOOD-TRUCK REVOLUTION

Another great place to experience these new food trucks in Phuket are at the wide variety of hip, new markets popping up all over the island. The Sunday walking street on Thalang Road is home to an adorable little food cart that serves grilled pork and sticky rice in upscale packaging, as well as burgers and sliders. The cart also has a sister companion selling trendy cocktails and Italian sodas. There’s also a Thai-style pizza truck in Samkong most nights of the week serving up miniature versions of thin crust pizza with a variety of fresh, delicious toppings. The seafood pizza is a favourite here and the owner of the truck is a super friendly fellow who’s eager to please. A few food trucks in Phuket are open for special occasions and local festivals only, but are also available for hire to cater for such events as birthday parties and weddings with western-style cuisine. The owners of these ambulant kitchens may sometimes treat them as a hobby, but the food is nevertheless second to none. As the already popular street food scene in Phuket continues to change and evolve, there’ll be a growing market on the island for these food trucks. Without a doubt, they’re a fantastic addition to our gastronomic island.

A variety of great eats can be found at the food-trucks.
