The Guide Phuket was invited to the very first Sunday Brunch from Red Sauce restaurant, part of the stunning Rosewood Phuket, where we explored the subtle nuances of traditional Italian cuisine, from homemade pasta to salt-crusted sea bass.
Rosewood Phuket has inaugurated its first brunch of the year on Sunday, February 9, 2020, at its flagship Italian restaurant, Red Sauce. The brunch, which is served on the second Sunday of each month from 12:30 pm to 3:30 pm, combines the authenticity of Italian recipes with high-quality sourced ingredients.
Red Sauce’s DNA is imbued with Italian traditions and its brunch menu follows the same culinary path; each of the ingredients is carefully selected and the dishes strictly follow the original Italian recipes, as if they were still prepared by the Nonna, or grandmother in Italian language.
For starters, a large wooden table is dedicated to antipasti, a large selection of cheeses and cold cuts from various parts of Italy and the surrounding countries. Alongside the Pecorino and Prosciutto di Parma, you will find a display of Thai appetizers and salads, just to bring a hint of spices and heat at the beginning of your culinary journey.
By the entrance of the restaurant lays an impressive display of local and imported seafood, from the exquisite Fine de Claire oysters to everyone’s favorite lobster. Several specialty dishes are prepared with confidence by the talented Chefs who run each of their stations, like the elegant Salt Crusted Sea Bass, cut right in front of you from the open-air kitchen.
It would not be a true Italian brunch without a selection of home-made pasta and wood-oven baked pizzas; those servings came with a variety of sauces and premium ingredients to choose from, such as the volcano-grown tomatoes from Sicily used in the Pomodorino Vesuviano sauce or the texture-perfect mozzarella melting on the pizza dough.
A large BBQ station awaits on the side terrace, where a choice of proteins of seafood is ready to be served; rack of lamb, Australian Black Angus, lobsters… the choice is yours and all the meats were cooked to perfection.
What brings an end to the culinary indulgence is a full display of sweets and desserts, including the classic Tiramisu, home-made macaroons, and the crepe Suzette, flambéed with a vintage Grand Marnier. We cannot wait to get back for some more!
The brunch at Red Sauce is available every second Sunday of each month and retails for THB 2,500 net per person, including soft drinks and one Signature Tropic Mary, and THB 3,500 net per person with the inclusion of a free-flow of beverages, including Prosecco, selected wines and beers.
