We Love to dine and taste spectacular food and tasteful wines! So here we go… Upon arrival we were escorted to their ultra-modern chic lobby. To be honest we were very surprised to see how cool and hip this was! WE FELL IN LOVE!! As we walked in we felt happiness, I felt relaxed and could not stop smiling! It was colourful and attractive.
The Reef Deli has a well positioned wine lounge to suit everyone’s budget, and use local wines also which is fantastic for the Hua Hin community. Not only do they cater for locals (not just hotel guests) they also cater for special occasions! We were seated in the wine lounge to dine. To start with we chose the light & healthy – Spicy pomelo salad with grilled tiger prawn, this is must for all diners TRUST ME! I was sipping on a white wine from Chile – (Mar Y Sol) which is a Sauvignon Blanc. This means sea and sun which are the two key elements which gives this wine a unique character. It boasts wonderful aromas balanced with citrus and tropical fruits on the palate… oh my! Beautiful.
I have to say this because the truth is I’m a red wine man! And it was simply exceptional. For mains we decided to choose three dishes. Our first choice was larb pla salmon thod grob – Crispy salmon with tamarind sauce, shallots, rice powder and chilli. This was cooked to absolute perfection, you cannot cook it better yourself no matter how hard you try and try again. Our second main choice was pan fried sea bass with couscous and tomato salsa. Diners expect fresh seafood and this was what was served. Fresh, soft and simply outstanding cuisine. The final main was a grilled chicken breast – with caramelised shallots, mushrooms and a mouthwatering bacon sauce. When tasting you genuinely close your eyes from such an unbelievable sensation to the palette.
Finally moving onto my secret! (a joke we had with khun Jeab) I don’t have a sweet tooth, this is a subject we had a joke about while dining and made the evening fun. For deserts we were served two! A warm chocolate fondant – served with vanilla ice cream and chocolate ganache and sweet mango caviar coconut and pandan cake accompanied with vanilla ice cream. I’m genuinely shocked; these are made at an expert level! I wanted more and more and more! To cook at this level is a very special talent indeed.
