Kantok Restaurant @ Burasari Resort, Phuket

Dining-Area

Kantok restaurant at Burasari Resort will awe you with its lush gardens, open kitchen concept and tranquil water features. Their prices are understandbly higher given the classy settings of the restaurant, and is about 3-4 times more expensive than the hole-in-the-wall places. If a clean and relaxed dining environment is what you are looking for in Patong, Kantok should be on top of your list.

Water-Feature

The extensive menu features mainly Thai dishes along with a few unique ones such as Red Duck Curry. Food wise, everything tasted pretty good with healthy portions and they are nicely presented. The only downside about Kantok is the slow kitchen service because the dishes took considerably long to arrive despite us being the only customers there.

Bun Cha Dac Kim (Grilled Pork Noodle) @ Hang Manh, Hanoi

Hanoi is a lively city with no lack of choices when it comes to street food. There is so much more to eat besides the already well-known beef pho and spring rolls. The way the locals eat is another unique aspect to Hanoi’s street food scene. As you might have known or seen before, most of the eateries here are a simple set up of a few small tables and stools along the five foot way.

Bun-Cha-Pork

The first dish we tried upon reaching Hanoi was Bun Cha at Hang Manh street. Bun Cha is a grilled pork and noodle dish served with a platter of herbs and a bowl of savory dipping sauce. Here’s how a typical serving of Bún Chả would look like. If language is a problem, just use sign language to indicate how many servings you want. Most Vietnamese food vendors specialize in one dish only so this technique works most of the time.

Bun-Cha-Set

Anyway, here’s the entire course for Bun Cha and it consists of the grilled pork, Vietnamese vermicelli, herbs (most of them are minty, with refreshing flavors), and a sweet dipping sauce with slices of young papaya.

Street Food @ Open Air Food Bazaar, Patong Promenade Plaza

The first thing we did after landing on Phuket was to look for food. There are many restaurants nearby our hotel alright but our sights were set on this open air food bazaar instead. It was located next to the Patong Promenade Plaza and there were easily twenty to thirty stalls, albeit some serve the same dishes.

Grilled-River-Prawns

Grilled river prawns should be the most delicious dish we had, they are so fresh! Anyway, if you are wondering why the prawns always come out perfect, it’s because they actually boil them first before placing them on the grill. The grilling takes maybe only a minute or so on each side just for the extra aroma so the flesh is always juicy and succulent.
