KOH SAMUI THAI CUISINE

Koh Samui is an island paradise 80-minutes flight away from Bangkok.  This is an idyllic vacation get-away. 

The restaurant opened in January this year.  This is intricately designed as the usual restaurants found in Bangkok.  Entering the place made me reminisce about the my foodie adventure in Bangkok.

Thai food has carved a special place in my palate.  Even the receptionist donned their national costume to complete the score.

The waitress called this Fungi.  Tengang Daga for us Filipinos but the scientific name is Auricularia polytricha.  This is dried black mushroom served as an appetizer.  This is a good beginning …

(*) Shrimp Curry – This is one is very good. Even the shrimps are fresh.  Though the serving is quite small for its price . It was well worth it. Though traditionally Indian – this one is just right for th Filipino taste.

They are particularly proud of their curries . I must say … they should be.

Chicken Pandan – Chicken wrapped in Pandan Leaves . The leaves keep the chicken juices inside so you can eat a soft and juicy chicken after it has been fried. This comes with a sweet and sour sauce topped with sesame seeds.  For 1st time eaters, thou shall not eat the pandan leaves.

Mango Pudding – this is one heavy dessert.  It is a jelly mango served in a wine glass topped with cherry and chocolate.

Opened in November 2012,  this is one good Ramen House that we stumbled upon while wanting a piping hot meal in the midst of an equally piping hot topic.  Great food combined with a great company is always a delightful combination.

Gyoza – Php 155 – 5 pcs.  – this pot sticker is Japan’s Chinese dumpling.  This is made of ground beef with vegetables inside a thinly rolled piece of dough.  This is usually eaten with soy-vinegar dipping sauce.

(*) White Soup Ramen – Ramen is a Japanese noodle dish which is of Chinese origin . It has wheat noodles with broth or meat stock and toppings such as spring onions and slices of pork or chicken or beef.  This particular ramen is served with a hard-boiled egg.  The soup is creamier than the usual broth. The hand-pulled noodles are made fresh.  This dish is so simple yet too divine to forget.

(*) Special Miso Chashu Ramen with Ma Oil –  Php 395- And who said there should only be one banner dish for every restaurant? Not this one … this is as good as the 1st one but with a different twist.  This I love better than the 1st .   Where did that creaminess come from? Might be the miso and all other ingredients put together to concoct this lovely meal.  I am no fan of Ramen but this one is on the top my list. This is a specialty ramen.
