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.
