Vijitt Style Dining

IMG_6209The Thai word “Vijitt” means exquisite and delicate, and this sums up the dining experience at Vijitt Resort’s two restaurants: The Savoury Restaurant, which serves international and fusion-style cuisine, and Baan Vijitt, which serves an authentic Thai feast.

Both offer gorgeous views of Chalong Bay and fresh sea breeze from the Andaman Sea.

Our first venue was The Savoury Restaurant, a fine dining venue located adjacent to the main pool, where we were wel-comed with refreshing mocktails. The first, Sawasdee, was a mellow IMG_6194smoothie of mango, mango juice, yoghurt and honey, ideal for Phuket’s climate. The other was Honey Kiss Ginger, made using fresh ginger and mint leaves mixed with natural honey, lemon juice and blended with ginger ale. 

The specialities and newest dishes on the menu of Executive Chef Sarawut Chingchai include New Zealand Lamb Chop with Mild Spicy Peanut Curry; a great fusion of east and west cuisines. The juicy, tender lamb chop was cooked to perfection, and the locally sourced herbs and spices that made up the mild spicy sauce certainly gave it an authentic taste. 

IMG_6180This was followed by a Duck Confit in Sweet and Sour Sauce served with Phuket Pineapple and Roti. The duck meat fell off the bone and paired perfectly with the rich and flavourful sweet and sour sauce. The side of Phuket pineapple highlighted the taste of the sauce. The addition of the roti completes the full range of the dishes varied textures. 

The dessert at The Savoury Restaurant was Mango Cheesecake, a smooth and creamy cheesecake made with ripe tropical mangoes. The balance of the sweetness and mild sourness from the cake goes well with the scoops of fresh ripe mangoes and creamy chocolate sauce. 

Baan Vijitt Restuarant
IMG_6222Just a short walk from The Savoury Restaurant is the historical, exquisite Baan Vijitt, a Sino-Portuguese style man-sion filled with precious memories from as far back as 1954. 

The menu here focuses on authentic Thai cuisine and premium ingredients. We started with a star appetiser, Sea-food Spring Rolls. These generously-sized crunchy spring rolls are filled with fresh mixed seafood, glass noodles and vegetables resulting in a delicious texture and taste in every bite. 

One of the most popular main courses is the world famous Pad Thai that comes with meaty Phuket IMG_6240lobster. The sauce is carefully prepared by Chef Sarawut using goat chilli mixed with tamarind juice and palm sugar.

The soft-textured Sen Jun noodles (the authentic noodle for Pad Thai) combined with great seasoning, sauce and fresh lobster meat makes for one of the best Pad Thais in the south of Phuket. 

Another highlight is the Soft-Shell Crab in Yellow Curry. This flavourful curry packs a spicy touch that binds won-derfully into the soft-shell crab and the steamed jasmine rice. The taste can be adjusted for the level of spiciness you feel comfortable eating. IMG_6226

We ended the feast with a tropical-style, sweet coconut ice cream served in a cute coconut shell surrounded by fruit salad. The great scent and flavour of coconut really cleans up the palate and freshens the dining finale.
