After living for 4 years in Hua Hin it was my first time walking down Soi 80 where The Garden Restaurant is located;
made me feel a little feeling embarrassed.
When you see a small oasis on the north side of the Soi with a small lake, water fountain and palm trees, you’ve reached The Garden. I entered the restaurant and a small young boy welcomed me to my table; his name was Michael and he was wearing a black tuxedo and looking very serious when taking my order.
While I was waiting Khun Franky came out of the kitchen and I ordered the famous Garden’s Caesar’s Salad with the homemade dressing sauce that I was recommended. The portions at Garden Restaurant are huge, that’s their signature. The Salad was fresh with crispy croutons, crispy bacon and fresh grated parmesan. Another thing I noticed was that the amount dressing for this simple dish was exactly as it needed; not too little, not too much, perfect to cover the greens and a few of the croutons. Khun Franky came to my table to ask what I wanted next.
When I told him I am Greek, he knew exactly what to serve. The Garden Restaurant offers European food and Thai. It make me be even more proud that a Greek dish was on their menu and one of my Greek favourite foods; souvlaki. A big plate arrive full of food, big pork cuts from Canada marinated with selected herbs and grilled vegetables with mushrooms, bell peppers and zucchini. It could have been a healthy choice if you didn’t eat it all as I did. When the food is so good -and I am a strict judge when it comes to my regional food – you can’t stop! My dinner didn’t finish there; I had to try the just cooked soft butter cookies with chocolate chips and strawberry ice cream. My mouth is watering now as I am writing this article.
Oh yes, here it comes and so good that I have no words to describe it. Who doesn’t love cookies that have just been baked; the smell, the look and the taste all were delicious! I am going there once again before I go back to Greece just to try this delicious dessert one more time!

All in all the experience was simply excellent!
