On the first leg of our honeymoon we had the pleasure of spending 3 full days in Phuket, Thailand at the beautiful Amanpuri Resort. Unfortunately for us the one thing you can’t control in life is the weather and we got rain…three days of it…torrential downpour to be exact. So what do you do when it’s raining and you can’t be outside? You eat:) And that we did!
Being that we were in Thailand it only seemed most appropriate to stick to the native cuisine which we did. Every morning we started the day with a gorgeous platter of fresh fruit followed by either eggs or yogurt and granola. My favorite was by far the passionfruit. Holy cow it has a lot of flavor!
Lunch and dinner mostly consisted of curried noodle dishes, seafood and some sort of rice dish. All very flavorful and delicious!
If you’re ever planning a trip to Phuket, Thailand I highly recommend the resort for your accommodation and/or food. Everything at Amanpuri is quite impressive! The attention to detail is unbelievable and will have you oooh-ing and ahhh-ing at it all.
My husband’s breakfast bruschetta which was layered with arugula, avocado, roasted tomatoes, crispy pancetta, poached eggs and finished with a balsamic reduction…lots of punch for a morning meal but very good!
Poq Pia Sot – Shrimp, chicken and vegetables, rolling in a Thai crepe with a spicy dipping sauce
Pow Pia Thod – Tradition deep fried spring rolls. Always a tasty choice even though they’re not healthy.
