Every last Sunday of the month, Phuket’s iconic upmarket hotel, The Boathouse, proudly presents the “Boathouse Best Brunch” in its restaurant located on the soft sands of Kata Beach. A true gastronomical feat, the Best Brunch features a fine selection of delicacies showcasing Land and Sea Themes. Live music by the restaurant’s resident band provides the soundtrack to the afternoon.
Reservations are strongly encouraged, and diners can anticipate to be spoilt for choice at the Boathouse Best Brunch. Typical brunch choices include an Oyster Selection, fresh Maine Lobster, Foie Gras, Charcuterie Platter, Prime Beef, exceptional French Cheeses and more from a variety of enticing food stations scattered across the restaurant.
The day I dine at the Boathouse Best Brunch, I am treated to a delicious a la carte Fillet of Beef Cheek Risotto. The beef cheek is meltingly tender while the Italian-style risotto is the perfect creamy accompaniment. The Fillet of Beef Cheek Risotto portion is the perfect size. It’s filling, but leaves room to explore more of the excellent dishes on the brunch’s a la carte menu. Next up is the Pan-Fried Foie Gras and Yorkshire Pudding Fig. A French delicacy, the foie gras has a rich flavor. The texture is smooth and melts in my mouth with each bite.
Desserts include a tantalizing selection of cakes, tarts and fresh fruit offerings such as White Chocolate Passion Fruit Tart, Pear Crumble, Caramel Custard and a decadent Chocolate Brownie, which is my favourite. Do make sure to sample the variety of sweets available, as the cakes and tarts are truly some of the very best on the island. The Pear Crumble has a unique taste which is light and it’s a satisfying way to end a meal.
