Dee Plee Restaurant at the stunning Anantara Layan Phuket Resort & Spa is home to a unique Sunday brunch experience we had the opportunity to try at the beginning of October. Welcome to a world of fantastic flavors and atmosphere!
We recently tried out the wonderful Sunday Brunch at Dee Plee Restaurant by Anantara. The delightful vibe will accompany your special meal thanks to the 180-degree ocean view adjacent to the swimming pool, where you can hang out with your loved ones while enjoying the Sunday feast.
The brunch is served a la carte with a bottle of sparkling for two, and it was simply perfect! The portions of each menu, from the appetizers, starters, snacks, chef’s pizzas, grills, and desserts, are generous and the taste is on point! We were pleased with every single bite!
To warm up the palate, we were served oysters with Mignonette sauce and lemon. Fresh from the sea, the oysters were very light and refreshing. The second appetizer came packed with heavier flavors; French Toast Soldiers with cheese fondue was served on the table. The rich blue cheese fondue absorbed into the crunchy buttered toast gave a real indulging sense to the palate. To tone down the course, we had the Phuket Fresh Spring Rolls for the third dish. We love that they use tamarind chili sauce inside these vegetable spring rolls, making the overall taste interesting and wholesome. Back to seafood, there was the Shrimp Cocktail as the final dish of the starters. The shrimps are mixed with bell pepper, olive, and thousand island sauce that provided a good balance to it.
Moving on to the snack party! A board of delicious nibbles was served with three menus to enjoy. Roast Pumpkin Tart with almond, feta and honey, Quiche with Zucchini and Gruyere, so soft and mellow, while the Chicken Poppers with Jalapeno Aioli were crispy throughout.
The pre-main course was the Chef’s Pizzas, of which we chose Carbonara and Diavola, which were both impressive.
A mix grill board was served as the main course featuring Australian Angus Ribeye, Grilled Chicken with Garden Salad and Seabass with truffle mash. The Ribeye was cooked to perfection and well-seasoned. The delectable marinated chicken was juicy and balanced nicely with the garden salad while the seabass was also very tasty and offeed a great texture, paired with the umami truffle mash, this dish was irresistible!
To complete the meal, desserts were served! The sweet Nutella Cronut and Ice Cream Sandwich served with marshmallows were the stars of the final table. Undeniably, they made the meal ended with perfection.
