A Hidden Gem in the incredible peaceful corner of Patong
It’s not commonly known that there’s a real chic and peaceful place to stay or dine in Patong, but there is and it’s called “Andaman Embrace Resort & Spa”.
Hidden amongst the numerous hotels and resorts in Patong, Andaman Embrace is created in a way far more outstanding than others in terms of presentation, it has a unique vibe in a classic Chino-Portuguese architectural style, and its cuisine is also second to none.
Twigs restaurant is where we headed for dinner. Twigs is a large open air all day dining restaurant which can seat 200 people for breakfast, lunch, dinner and even special functions. The design best describes its name “Twigs” which is located in the basement downstairs in the main building and close to the resort’s swimming pool. Twigs serves up a menu of local and international fusion dishes which mix the best of all regions from around the world.
Our table, set in the terrace next to the green garden, is beautifully set. An appetizer of “Veggie Salad” with a choice of French Thousand Island and Vinaigrette dressings and a mini bread basket were served first. Then came a fantastic “Lobster Bisque” – a full and rich real lobster soup which is a great choice to start tantalizing the taste buds.
After finishing our healthy green salad and tantalizing soup, our main courses were served. “Grilled Salmon Fillet” and “Australian Grain Fed Beef Tenderloin Steak” were well paired with a great choice of white & red wines. Fresh coconut juice is a great option for those non-alcohol drinkers.
The last and possibly most important stage of the meal is dessert as it’s usually the last thing guests remember before leaving. Homemade Chocolate Cake and Blueberry Cheese Cake were superb in their own way. But why not extend the bliss of the dessert together with freshly brewed coffee at the small café by the entrance of the hotel called “Coffee Bar”
The night can be completed with a drink or two at the resort’s “Sino Bar” which is located next to the lobby. Sino Bar is a simple and easygoing lounge where a quick coffee, cocktail, snack and other refreshments are readily available. It is just the place to go on short notice for a quick drink.
