Last night’s dinner at Salaloy on Karon Beach in Phuket, Thailand blew every other Thai meal I have ever eaten out of the water.
For starters, the restaurant is as casual as could be. With the seating along the sidewalk on the beach side of the road and the kitchen on the other, this restaurant served incredible Pla Tot Ka Tiem (whole fish), sum tum (papaya salad) and Tom Yung Kung Nam Koon (spicy shrimp soup). We had fried cuttlefish as tender as I have ever eaten along with crab and pork steamed dumplings as appetizers followed by whole fish topped with roasted garlic and herbs and another whole fish topped with red curry and fresh coconut. Other entrees included pork with yellow curry and fried tiger prawns.
All washed down with a few Singhas, of course!
I think we will be repeating dinner here another night this week!
