For all of you who missed Andreas, now you can find him in his very own new restaurant in the Lappa Boutique Hotel. The name of the new restaurant says it all; ‘Andreas Italian Food and Grill’. The set up of the place is beautiful, elegant and contemporary in grey natural tones. The open kitchen in the middle of the room commands attention and the professionalism of the chefs immediately gives you the idea that you are going to try some really good tastes. Andreas is there; supervising and sharing his passion about his food with customers! If you don’t know what to choose from his menu, ask him, and he will not disappoint you. We were only two, but the food we had was definitely for more, so don’t be scared. The portions are really big but we wanted to try more and the wine was too good to leave.
For starters we had ‘fresh mussels’ from Spain, simply delicious. Then ‘foie gras’ served with toasted brioche bread and raspberry sauce; scrumptious! After this we had ‘angel hair fresh homemade pasta with clarified butter, parmesan cheese (aged 3 years) and shaved fresh white alba truffle’. The strong taste of the white truffle was obvious with such a generous portion; difficult to forget! And these were only our starters, for the main course we had ‘ pan-fried snow fish served with asparagus and lobster sauce’. The fish was cooked to perfection and it was easily separated with every single bite, the sauce was full of flavour. Clever cooking executed perfectly. And of course we couldn’t leave not trying something from the grill oven. ‘Australian lamp chops with grilled vegetables and roasted potatoes’.
You could taste the smoke from the charcoal and I loved it. For me this is the only way to enjoy lamp chops. Andreas keep the standards very high; every dish has a different cooking technique and different textures. The prices are definitely worth the product you get. It’s best to make a booking before going, we preferred inside but the outdoor lounge is set up to chill and enjoy a nice cocktail. We will try it next time. It is so nice to see Hua Hin growing in all directions and now we have another great restaurant for when you don’t want to go in town. ‘Andreas Italian Food and Grill” is the place. A Big thanks to Andreas for the great hospitality.
