Cosmo Restaurant at the Nai Harn

International (incl Thai) Tel: 0 7638 0200

Cosmo 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 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 and dips. Ingredients are ultra-fresh. Most of 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.

Rock Salt

Mediterranean & seafood Tel: 0 7638 0200

The Nai Harn has undergone many transformations over the years. Nowadays, Rock Salt, a pebble’s throw from the waves lapping Nai Harn Bay, is perfect for a pre-prandial cocktail. Relax to funky music, admire the roseate sunset, and peruse the list of ‘Tribute and Signature Cocktails’ created by Salim Khoury. Awarded the accolade of UK ‘Bartender of the Year’ in 1992, and famous for his stewardship of the London Savoy’s American Bar, he has long been associated with The Nai Harn.

SEE PROFILE PAGES 41

Little wonder the cocktails are so memorable. My partner has a Nai Harn Sunset, a deep pink confection made with Balls gin, fresh water melon, basil, lime and Prosecco. Mine, a Nai Harn Cooler, is a luscious offering: Kristall gin combined with zesty orange marmalade and the juice of lime, orange and pineapple. Also on the list are: Rumble, Blushing Monarch – featuring gin and Campari and, of course, Lady Nai Harn. For a main course, a must-try is the ‘piece de resistance’, the Andaman Platter, a comprehensive sea-food offering for two, which pays homage to the very essence of Phuket’s marine heritage. Sea shrimps, tiger prawns, Fine de Claire oysters, steamed Rawai clams in chili, ginger, coriander and coconut milk, served with all the trimmings. Less demanding on pocket and palate, sample Mediterranean inspired flavours: Souvlaki – barbequed pork kebabs with grilled peppers – or the Italian-inspired Blue Mushroom Pizza. 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. To top it all, there’s a DJ playing every Friday from 4 pm -10 pm. Daily Happy Hour ‘Buy 1 Get 1 Free’ from 5.30 - 6.30 pm. Rock Salt, despite its alfresco, dramatic beach setting, is cosy and intimate. The funky music, alcoves and different levels add to its charm. Comfortable sofas, attentive but unfussy service and valet parking, make the whole experience a relaxed, and pleasurable one.

The Boathouse

Thai Steaks & Grills Tel: 0 7633 0015-7

Restaurant The Boathouse is a legendary boutique hotel and restaurant, one of the first in Phuket and now the beneficiary of a most imaginative refurbishment. Sip your cocktail in a bar area with blue and white nautical motifs, then dine al fresco amid venerable trees and wooden decking in an atmosphere of rustic grace and charm. Beyond is the sea, now silvered by moonlight, with black silhouettes of late bathers, and revellers launching illuminated lanterns into the tropic night. Magical.

SEE PROFILE PAGES 48

There is, of course, an air-conditioned option, still with the sea view. We begin with drinks – a classy Oz chardonnay available by the glass – then adjourn to the spacious restaurant where the cool sounds from a trio playing jazz standards, filter through. From a selection of 14 starters, all living up to their stated claim to be “fresh and delicate”, I opt for the King Prawn Salad, a crunchy, spicy amalgam of sliced baby eggplant, lemongrass, lime, mint and chili paste, the perfect green complement to massive grilled prawns. My partner’s seared marinated scallops, on a bed of asparagus and fresh leaves, are succulent and enhanced by an intense chili-garlic sauce. The ‘new’ Boathouse is already celebrated for two iconic dishes: the slow-cooked Duck Confit in “tangy” tamarind sauce and the Lamb Shank Massaman. The restaurant’s most popular offering, this southern Thai curry featuring lamb on the bone is served in a delectable and aromatic sauce with sweet potatoes. Massaman like you have never experienced it. Sensational. The Gaeng Kathi Neua Poo, yellow crab meat curry in coconut milk with betel leaves, is densely flavoured and creamy. Also recommended are Grouper Fillet, Razor Clams with Cashews and Okra, and Smoked Roasted Pork Neck in Green Banana Curry. VISIT US The wine list is legendary. Everything up ONLINE to Chateau Petrus. I settle for an Australian Shiraz, the perfect partner for a sumptuous repast. The Boathouse has everything: history, attentive service, a unique setting, a romantic ambience and above all, ambrosial food. Do go… You will not be disappointed. 13

Gotha Phuket

French & International Tel: 08 8380 7577

Gotha is a delightful surprise: a spacious, bistro style restaurant with functional banquettes, chrome fittings, wooden-slatted tables, and themed murals, allied to friendly service and distinctive “haute cuisine”. A new venture, inspired by the Steampunk science fantasy movement associated with the city of Gotha, it has, for good measure, a French chef and French proprietor – which no doubt accounts for the classic Gallic emphasis. The menu is still changing; at present a moveable feast with frequent exciting additions.

14


www.wheretoeat-phuket.com

SEE PROFILE PAGES 64

We begin with another surprise: an amuse-bouche of creamy salmon in an oyster shell, resting on a bed of pebbles. Totally in keeping with the inventive and meticulous character of Gotha. For starters, I sample the Chicken breast and goat’s cheese in pastry. Two very distinct flavours and textures. My friend opts for the Gravlax spiral, an authentic Scandinavian dish of raw salmon served with herbs, cream and crispy vegetables. Other delicious-looking starters include Oeuf parfait with fried cèpes, cream and shallot confit. The Burger is, again, very different from the usual offering: a massive layer of ground beef with truffled Brie cheese, topped with an eye-catching dressing of caramelized onions, beetroot spaghetti and asparagus. The spicy Boeuf Bourguignon comes with red wine sauce, mashed potato, mushroom and asparagus. Desserts run the gamut from rich chocolate mousse to Exotic entremet – passion fruit and mango mousse with fresh fruit and rum syrup. Unsurprisingly, the wine list is modest, but inexpensive; glasses of house red and white won’t break the bank. For our repast, we sample a fruity Australian red. The luxurious bar lounge has a wide selection of drinks and opulent surroundings in which to enjoy your aperitif VISIT US or cocktail. If you are looking for something different with a French accent, go to Gotha. You will not be disappointed. Chef Christophe Pach is to be congratulated. As the restaurant welcome declares: ”Be part of it!“

Baluchi

Indian Tel: 0 7628 4555 & 0 7629 2526-30

If you love Indian food like I do, you’ll know that one of the most disappointing experiences of life in Phuket is trying out the new Indian restaurant that just opened around the corner from home – only to discover that the food is truly dreadful. Yes, there’s a lot to be said for sticking to what you know – and Baluchi falls firmly into that category. One of the first restaurants to book space in the launch issue of Where to Eat in Phuket about 14 years ago, Baluchi has been serving quality Indian food in tranquil surroundings to happy guests for as long as most of us can remember. Right in the heart of Patong in Soi Kepsap, and with its own private car park, Baluchi is special not only for its food; choose the garden dining option as we did, and you’ll find it hard to believe that you’re in a hotel restaurant in the middle of this crazy nightlife town. You really could hear a pin drop it’s that peaceful. Or, of course, there’s an air-conditioned part of the restaurant for those who prefer the chill. But on to the food which, as all true devotees know, is really all that matters when it comes to dining out Indianstyle. If you can rustle up a bunch of friends (4-6 people is ideal) you’ll get much more out of your Indian night out than if you go as a couple. It’s just that you’ll get to mix and match a wider variety of tastes. We did! Starting with a beautifully fresh Hara Bhara Salad on the table to nibble along with our Poppadums with pickles, we went on to savour succulent Chicken Tikka and Paneer Tikka, the latter rendition of paneer a new and delightful taste for me. Our main courses included a collection of old favourites: Butter Chicken, Mutton Roganjosh, Baluchi (black) Dahl, Mutton Biryani and Kadai Subzi (mixed vegetables), with Naan, (plain) Roti, Missi Roti and Mixed Raitha served alongside. 16

Don’t make the mistake of thinking Indian food = blazing hot spices, as my reluctant Aussie dining companion thought before I put him straight. Maybe yes, if it’s a Friday night ‘extra hot’ Chicken Vindaloo in Bradford, England – but the real thing is a superb melange of subtle tastes and textures. I couldn’t fault a single dish, but there was one problem: we simply couldn’t manage to eat it all! As I write this, I can almost taste the food and lament the left-behind dishes. I’m sure if we’d asked, a ‘doggy bag’ would not have been a problem. Perhaps surprisingly, Baluchi has a varied and comprehensive wine list. Yes, wine and Indian food go very well together! We accompanied our feast with a suitably full bodied Marques de Riscal Vina Collada Rioja 2010, great value at only 1,695 baht. If you prefer to stick with the house wine, it won’t break the bank at less than 1,000 baht or 210 by the glass. For those who prefer beer with their Indian meal, there’s an ongoing ‘Beer Lovers’ promotion, with beers from 80-100 baht. Last, but by no means least, the service at Baluchi was impeccable. Graceful, courteous, discreet and with the kind of attention to detail you rarely find anywhere in Phuket. Absolute top marks to the service team. Final note: if you prefer not to venture into Patong, there is a Baluchi in Karon too – at the Horizon Beach Resort. Not quite the same perfect garden setting – but the food is just as good and the service is also top notch.

Dee Plee at Anantara Layan Phuket Resort

Thai Tel: 0 7631 7200

If every up-scale restaurant needs to be distinctive, then Dee Plee succeeds. The location is spectacular, perched on an escarpment which commands lofty views of the resort and the sea beyond. The refined Thai menu offers an imaginative range of dishes from all over the kingdom. Add to that, an emphasis on ultra-fresh herbs and vegetables, and superlative presentation – a feast for the eye as well as the palate – and you will have some sense of the Dee Plee’s unique charms. The attention to surprising detail is evident from the start. We begin with a glass of butterfly pea tea, followed by an ‘amuse-bouche’ of Perilla leaves with five dips including ginger, chili and fish-based ones and three nibbles – fried coconut, galangal pickle, and peanuts.

18


www.wheretoeat-phuket.com

SEE PROFILES ON PAGES 79

The chef recommends a starter which takes us on a gastronomic journey around Thailand. Colourfully served in bowls with accompanying sauces, it consists of Kor Moo Yang Jim Jeaw – North-east style grilled pork neck with lime sauce, Larb Gai – minced chicken salad with rice powder and mint leaves, Som Tum Thai – a spicy papaya salad with dry shrimps and peanuts from central Thailand, Thod Mun Goong – fried patties of minced shrimp, and Yum Nua Yang, a beef salad with lime, chili sauce, tomato and onion, which my partner loves for its piquant edge. For me the ‘piece de resistance’ is the shrimp patty, succulent and densely flavoured. For the main course, we both opt for traditional Thai curries. My friend’s choice – predictably since she hails from Trang – is Kua Gling, finely minced southern kurabuta pork, stir-fried in curry paste with lemon grass and kaffir lime. My selection is a Panang fish curry, Pla Grapong Dang, with snapper and cumin. The real deal, with a rich red sauce and moist fillets of fish. Choice of three kinds of rice too…. And, for those who cannot make up their minds, the Curry Platter offers a selection of five different classics including Gang Keaw Waan (green curry) and Masssaman Nua. There is even a selection of vegetarian dishes based on Phuket’s own traditions. The wine list is impressively extensive – with 21 choices available by the glass. I order a tannic Australian Barossa Stonefish Shiraz and follow up with a classically plummy Merlot from the same vintner. No stone is left unturned at Dee Plee to ensure your experience is memorable. 19

Mom Tri´s WOK PAGODA

Asian/Fusion Tel: 0 7660 8899

One of Phuket’s most spectacular locations, perched on a hillside high over Chalong Bay. Wok Pagoda Kitchen, Mom Tri’s latest venture, enjoys panoramic views from easterly Cape Panwa to Rawai in the south. Set like jewels in the turquoise ocean below are green-clad islands. On a clear day you can see the misty outline of Ko Phi Phi. Marvellous. The restaurant has two spacious verandahs to take full advantage of the setting – one, open to the sea and sky, the upper level enclosed by glass. Imaginative touches include jungly paintings after Henry Rousseau and large mirrors reflecting the ocean theme. A garden supplies fresh herbs. Like the classy and friendly service, the décor is unpretentious,

but entirely appropriate: granite-topped tables, comfortable chairs, wine glasses that will not disappear in a gust of wind. Nearby is the yakitori bar, serving delicious tapas with drinks. The menu is relatively small so diners can select from a number of dishes intended to be shared – Thai style. It is also a sampler: popular dishes will be retained once Wok Pagoda embarks on a wider range. The emphasis is on ultra-fresh ingredients, locally sourced, and prepared with the lightest of cooking touches: “the charcoal grill is the hearth of our kitchen”. In addition, every dish looks beautiful, a delight to the eye. And the emphasis on fusion cuisine means that both chefs can combine western and Thai styles in their creations. My entrée is Steamed scallops, served in their shells in a delectable ginger and seaweed sauce: Plump, succulent and with a real tang of the ocean. My partner chooses Seared tuna with spices Wasabi. The melt-in-the-mouth flesh is a gorgeous deep pink, thinly sliced, and with a sauce that is ‘hot stuff’ even for a Thai palate. Sea bass is accompanied by a rich tarragon and white wine sauce. Dessert is a simple but delectable Thai offering of mango with ice-cream and rice. Other memorable-looking dishes include Tiger prawns with cilantro and white wine, Breast of duck with orange lamyai tempura and chuchee curry. Prices are extremely reasonable. Finally drinks. A wide-ranging list includes six whiskies, 10 liqueurs and 14 cocktails. From four “Around the World Reds”, I choose the Sommelier’s Selection, a Chilean merlot. A snip at 220 baht a glass. 21

CUT Grill & Lounge

International/Steaks & Grills Tel: 093 638 8921

With a prime lakeside location in the popular Boat Avenue complex in Cherngtalay, CUT Grill & Lounge is a chic, openair restaurant featuring organic, farm-raised meats, an array of tapas-style appetizers, lush desserts, signature cocktails and a lengthy wine list. Standout menu items include the Mille Stelle Burrata with sun-dried tomatoes, almond pesto and black olives tapenade. The burrata is rich and creamy, while the pesto and tapenade add subtle zest. Light and fresh, this is truly a perfect appetizer to start off the evening. Next up is the Truffle Risotto, featuring black truffle. Simple and tasty, the risotto is served with fresh parmesan cheese, which gives it a salty kick. The overall salty and nutty flavour

combination of the dish is simply delicious. The risotto is filling enough as a stand-alone dish to consider it a meal. My dining partner chose to feast on a 200 days grain-fed Australian Tenderloin Angus. Served medium well, the steak was grilled to perfection. In addition to being impeccably seasoned, the tender cuts of meat melted like butter on the tongue. Served with Truffle Mashed Potatoes and grilled garlic, the tenderloin is a fantastic meal. Dessert at CUT Grill & Lounge is, as you would expect, a delightful affair. The Sticky Toffee Cookie is a deconstructed gooey, delicious mess of a half-baked cookie on top of Tahitian Vanilla Ice Cream and then smothered in salted butter caramel. This is a standout item on the dessert menu and worth every single calorie. Other desserts included the CUT Tiramisu and the Phuket Coconut Crème Brûlée. The tiramisu features bold, espresso flavours while the coconut crème brûlée offers up fresh coconut tastes blended in a traditional crème brûlée. The entire dining experience at CUT Grill & Lounge is excellent. Not only is the restaurant gorgeous with its lakeside views and chic, open air interior, but the delicious food is complemented by stellar service. The waiting staff are well spoken and completely engaging, eager to recommend menu items, top up drinks and change plate settings efficiently without being intrusive. The great setting, delicious food and wonderful service really do make CUT Grill & Lounge a cut above the rest. 23
