Escape to style, elegance and fabulous cuisine at Banyan Tree’s “Go Live” Seafood Brunch
As everyday life in Phuket becomes more frazzled, we all need an escape at the weekend to a saner, gentler parallel universe of peace, calm and wonderful cuisine, drinks and service.
Well, I have found the very place at the Banyan Tree Resort’s seductive Sunday Brunch.
The portal to this wondrous realm of gourmet cooking, beautiful surroundings, smiling staff and copious relaxing libations is easy to find. Just head for the lovely Banyan Tree Resort at Laguna Phuket and enter The Watercourt, their opulent glass-walled, open-sided restaurant overlooking the stunning lagoon with its burbling fountains, indoor/ outdoor seating and abundant greenery.
Here in this beguiling alternative world of Sunday Brunch you can kick back for a long, languorous experience stretching into the afternoon with fabulous cuisine, a terrific wine and drinks selections, and live jazz to ensure you really recover from the stresses of your week in that other reality called “Phuket”
Settling into your window seat overlooking the sparkling lake dancing in the sun outside and ordering a chilled bottle of wine, you quickly realize that here in this alternative brunching reality life is totally dedicated your happiness and relaxation.
After a first sip of wine to toast your good fortune at having discovered this wondrous alternative realm, take a walk around the rooms filled with abundant cooking stations and food displays. The center of the main room sets the stage with highlights of live seafood ranging from Canadian lobster and tiger prawns, to blue crab and red snapper, to crayfish and mussels all ready to be cooked exactly as you desire, for your delectation.
Then there’s the wide range of cooking stations, each manned by a dedicated chef ready to do your culinary bidding by cooking any dish as you wish. The range of produce and dishes on display represents a gastronomic voyage around many of the great food cultures of this planet, and so a well-formulated plan of dining is a key to getting the most out of all the possibilities on offer.
Tempting delicacies such as pan-seared foie gras, Asian wok-fried, Canadian lobster cooked a la minute in five different styles and Japanese sushi, sashimi, and a salad and cold cuts selection that leave you salivating, are all irresistible.
It’s important not to go too overboard on all the starters and main courses as a meander through the decadent dessert selection will quickly reveal to you.
Featuring pastries, tropical fruits, freshly prepared crêpes, ice creams and Thai desserts it’s another tempting world unto itself. And be sure to leave a little room to savor the generous assortment of French and Italian cheeses to finish things off.
Why can’t the rest of life be like wonderful world of the Banyan Tree’s Brunch?
