The Boathouse Restaurant

Thai Steaks & Grills Tel: 0 7633 0015-7

T

he iconic Boathouse Phuket, one of the island’s original quality restaurants – and one of the very few perched at the edge of a beach – celebrates 30 years serving discerning Phuket diners in February. It’s a little over one year since The Boathouse reopened after major renovation and redesign. The result was worth waiting for, whether you plan to spend a few nights in one of their 37 sumptuous rooms, or drop by for an experience that defines the perfect tropical island dinner. You must allow time to soak up that experience. Arrive early, claim a sea-facing sofa, order your aperitifs and idly watch the last of the day’s sun-worshippers, surfers and paddle boarders, while you wait for the glorious Kata Beach sunset. The Boathouse is not terribly ‘formal’ dining, so smart casual is fine – even ‘good’ shorts are OK but, they ask, please no swimsuits, singlets or flip-flops in the restaurant! If you’re really into gin, choose from 16 premium gins and 8 premium tonic waters – with a mind-numbing 30 varieties of freshly cut fruit, herbs & spices – not to mention 5 “perfect sprinkles”. We’re not, so I went for my favourite Ricard on ice, while my partner sipped on an Orient Blaze (rum, sherry, fresh orange juice and a splash of ginger ale). Lost in the sundowner moment, we were surprised with, and enjoyed, a tasty ‘amuse-bouche’ before moving on for the main event. Our table, immediately overlooking the sands and the water’s edge, enjoyed the cool sea breeze – but for those who prefer to be more chilled, there’s ample air-conditioned seating, all with an ocean view or, facing the other way, looking into the wide-open kitchen, where Chef Jonathan and his talented team make it all look so easy. My partner started with a Rock Lobster Cocktail (on avocado, served with tom yam mayonnaise). The flavour simply flowed off the generous, succulent chunks of rock lobster, the

6

See PROFILE page 34

avocado providing balance and the mayonnaise reminding us of the Thai influence throughout the Boathouse menu. I went for Lamb Mulligatawny Soup, not on the menu but remembered and savoured from a previous occasion. It’s worth noting that nothing is too much trouble for Chef Jonathan. If you fancy something different, just ask him; if he’s got the ingredients – and he usually has – he’ll be happy to create your dish just for you. How many places will do that for you?! Main course was Tasmanian Salmon, with asparagus, tomato salsa and crushed potato and Crispy Duck Breast with Black Peppercorn Sauce (with colourful capsicum, garlic, peppercorn and oyster sauces), served with Jasmine rice. The salmon was deliciously light – exactly what my partner wanted, the salsa mixture giving a little zing to the delicate flavour. My duck breast was all I anticipated. Influenced by Thai (or even Chinese) tastes, the peppercorn and oyster sauce combo gave the dish an unexpected edge, while the meat was managed perfectly – al dente, not over-crisped. Full, but unable to resist a sweet something to finish, my partner indulged in a Belgian Chocolate Trio; for me a simple ice cream – but of course, I had to sample that trio… mmm... The Boathouse’s wine cellar is an island legend. Even today, with the demands of a massively altered market, you’ll find an eclectic selection with something for every taste and pocket. Philip, the charming and knowledgeable sommelier, recommended I try a Chilean wine I would never have chosen myself – a Domaines Barons de Rothschild Los Vascos Grande Reserve. It was an excellent choice. book now You must try this restaurant. You won’t be disappointed. And to help you get acquainted, every Friday there’s a “Wine Lunch”, where you get a 3-course meal and free flow wine for just 1,000 baht net! Hard to believe?

osmo offers a unique gastronomic experience in a paradisal setting. The flagship restaurant of the iconic Nai Harn, it occupies one of Phuket’s most coveted locations, a promontory flanking Nai Harn Bay. Featuring grey furnishings and geometric white dÊcor, the dining area exudes space and airiness. Immediately below us, the sandy beach is framed by jagged rocks. Executive Chef Mark Jones carefully explains the new menu. Recently appointed and with an impressive CV in high-end catering, he is rightly enthusiastic about a cuisine which

See PROFILE page 28

reflects his passion both for global travel and culinary innovation. We begin in Northern Japan. Mark’s choice of appetiser is pan-fried Hokkaido scallops with apple ginger, and crispy coppa ham. The juicy shellfish are lightly seared, their succulence complemented by a delicate echo of apple. The main course, again ocean inspired, accentuates the Andaman Sea: moist White snapper steak, and matching croquette. Other chef’s recommendations reveal a capacity for adventurous combinations. Marinated raw sea bass comes with pomelo, coriander, chili lemon, ginger and lotus root; Seared yellow fin tuna with greens, avocado, watermelon and ponzu citrus dressing. A Mixed grill of Andaman seafood includes the local catch of the day. Char-grilled cauliflower provides an inventive vegetarian option. For carnivores, Australian rib-eye steak with rissole potatoes and oyster mushrooms, rocket, asparagus, garlic and Béarnaise sauce admirably fits the bill. There are artisanal ice creams inspired by local fruits, and crisp organic salads. The attention to detail is exceptional. Nothing is too much trouble. Every dish is accompanied by exquisitely chosen vegetables and herbs with matching sauces Book now and dips. Ingredients are ultra-fresh. Most of ONLINE the seafood is purchased twice daily from Rawai fish market, and there is a stress on local, organic produce. The wide-ranging meats are created in the resort’s own charcuterie, even down to regional sausages.

Prime at Rock Salt

W

Steaks & Grills Tel: 0 7638 0200

ith less than 20 seats, this newly-opened, exclusive little jewel – Prime @ Rock Salt – is perched on the Rock Salt restaurant rooftop at The Nai Harn.

The entrance is through Rock Salt itself and up a discrete staircase. The early evening view from here is sublime: the whole bay spread out before you, yachts at anchor and a spectacular sunset ‘on the way’. Add to this impeccable service and wines selected (and paired) by renowned wine critic, James Suckling, and you have a formula for guaranteed success. And that’s before we’ve even touched on the food! Prime offers an assortment of roasted, smoked and chargrilled creations from custom-built kitchens, featuring a wood-fired brick oven. I started with Spanish Octopus (sous vide and chargrilled octopus, skordalia and gremolata) while my dining partner opted for the Cold Smoked Native Hebridean Salmon (lightly cured and cold smoked with raw crispy fennel salad, dill, granny smith apple, lemon, extra virgin olive oil and fresh root wasabi

10

See PROFILE page 29

mayonnaise). I’m not usually a fan of octopus, which can be tough and tasteless, so this was my test of how good Prime really is. It passed with flying colours! The octopus was surprisingly succulent and tender – and the combination of flavours in the dish made for a mouth-watering beginning to our Prime experience. The salmon was everything you’d expect. Delicate, yet full of flavour, and brilliantly enhanced by the imaginative salad combination. Main course for both of us was Ranger’s Valley Wagyu Rib Eye Marble Score 6, Grain Fed for 360 Days (chargrilled to the guest’s liking and served with truffle pomme purée, charred Romanesco cauliflower and red wine jus). Aside from the monster-sized portions that would satisfy the biggest of appetites, this was probably the tastiest, tenderest, most succulent steak I have enjoyed for as long as I can recall – and certainly the best ever on Phuket. One or two places renowned for steak may come close, but for steak perfection on a plate, The Nai Harn’s executive chef, Mark Jones, has put Prime @ Rock Salt way out in front. We accompanied our rooftop feast with a bottle of ‘91point’ El Enemigo Cabernet Franc Mendoza Familia 2014 from Argentina. At 2,280 baht, this was at the lower end of a mightily impressive wine list – but is testament to the fact that you do not have to empty your pockets to enjoy a very drinkable wine. For the view, the ambience, the service and – of course – the food and wine, Prime @ Rock Salt is a must-try. You will go back again but, with less than 20 seats, you’d be advised to book ahead. This is going to be one popular venue.

We descend from the road above to set foot in what feels like an enchanting film-set: wooden decking walkways lit by traditional lanterns, that lead past lily ponds and airy, rustic pavilions ready to welcome diners. Beyond, ancient trees, a verdant screen of sea-lettuce, and the lights of Kamala winking across the deep sweep of Patong Bay. We dine, literally, at the ocean’s edge.

The menu features traditional south Thai cuisine – both chefs, Uncle Nun and Aunt Yai, honed their considerable culinary skills for thirty years. Unsurprisingly, their menu – a roll-call of authentic Thai classics – features an extraordinary range of dishes, all prepared from superfine ingredients. Home-grown herbs complement “catch of the day” seafood harvested by local fishermen. Little wonder that the Thai name means “fishing net”. Warned by our attentive waiter that the portions are uber-generous, we begin with a shared gaeng poo, Nun’s “favourite” yellow curry with a creamy, tangy sauce and huge chunks of succulent crab. Unbeatable. For our main course, we order from the “The Pond”: steamed grouper served with a delectable chili and lime dressing. The flesh is firm and redolent of the sea, a reminder that such authentic fish is becoming more difficult to source. We conclude with a classic mango and coconut milk rice, surmounted by mango ice cream. Everything is perfect, but the menu is vast and we have only scratched the ‘à la carte’ surface. The attention to detail at Ta Khai is breathtaking: for example, “bite-sized dishes” range from miang kham with no fewer than six herbs, to buea tod with native water grass and prawns. “Wok-fried” fish offers a choice of seven different sauces. Lavish set menus are keenly priced. Inventive cocktails feature local produce – galangal, basil, papaya – re-emphasising the Thai experience. So too the wine list. It seems only appropriate to sample a Thai wine, a Chateau de Loei Chenin Blanc, so crisp and aromatic, I opt for a second glass.

Red Sauce Italian Bistro Rosewood Phuket at Tri Trang Beach

Italian Tel: 0 7635 6888

“Lazy Breakfast” Red Sauce’s brunch is a new venture at Rosewood Phuket. Not the only thing that is refreshingly novel and different about it. For a start, it is called “Lazy Breakfast” and you can really take your time – since the service operates from 11.30 to 2.30. And why not? The emphasis is on exquisite Italian cuisine with inventive smoothies and healthy juices. Start with a cleansing pineapple, cucumber, kale, lemon and ginger drink – very refreshing – or a “blood-purifying” bracer of carrot, tomato, orange, pear and lime. Such attention to detail informs the whole gastronomic experience: everything is fastidiously prepared and presented. Stiacciatina features home-baked focacciatina bread, filled with rocket, Parma ham, mozzarella, pesto and mascarpone. As a complement to this mouth-watering fare, we sample agnolotti alla boscaiolo, ricotta cheese and shitake mushrooms in a tasty meat sauce. Signature poached sea bass in herb broth with clams, cherry tomatoes and parsley potatoes follows. Sea bass can be bland. Not here: this is a luscious dish redolent of the sea. Superb with a chilled Prosecco. There is much more to tempt the palate: crab benedict – a different take on an old favourite, a Viking omelette of smoked salmon with sweet potato and avocado served on sour dough toast. More substantially, try the up-market “Italian Job” burger featuring Angus beef, Toma cheese and truffled French fries. Even the Caesar salad comes with tiger prawns. 14


www.wheretoeat-phuket.com

Rosewood belongs to “Partners in Provenance”, a collaboration with local farmers which ensures a constant supply of fresh seasonal produce: organic honey from Chiang Mai, hand-made egg noodles from Phuket’s Chinatown, free range goats’ milk and chicken eggs. Little wonder it all tastes so delectable. Incidentally, there is a magnificent presentation of home-made breads and pastries, all gluten free, for the health conscious diner, and a reasonably priced and sophisticated à la carte menu including pizzas, meat dishes, pasta and risotto for dinner guests. But it is not just the superlative cuisine, or even the impeccable service. The ambiance is breath-taking. We arrive by buggy, piloted down steep, lush hillsides, framed by exotic plants. We pass beneath teak arches, secluded villas (there are 71 of them) and finally arrive at the beautifully appointed, highceilinged restaurant where everything is fashioned from natural materials. Below, a verdant vista of palms, water-lily ponds, and an array of inviting pools sculpted from the rocky promontory and beyond the turquoise sea of Tri Trang Visit us beach .

Sample an à la carte option, four- and sixcourse tasting menus and the ‘Plantation Journey’ – a nine-course discovery of Thailand’s rich cooking culture. Culinary Director and Executive Chef Rey Ardonia, an innovative New Zealander with nearly 20 years of experience, including the awardwinning Bracu in New Zealand, says, “The Plantation Club is serious about investing in local; that’s why our menu is proudly 100% locally sourced.” We believe in doing our part in supporting the community along with delivering a superior culinary experience.” Understanding culinary roots and culture, sourcing local ingredients, and combining traditional practices with ultra-modern techniques sums up Chef Rey’s approach on a journey through Thailand’s eras and dynasties, finding forgotten flavours along the way. Enjoy The Plantation Club’s celebration of traditional Thai cuisine à la carte, with one of the tasting menus, or by embarking on the ‘Plantation Journey’. All can be paired with beverages crafted by skilled mixologists to further elevate the sensory discovery.
