Thailand Trip 2016 Day 3
So what did we do on day 3 – what would be exciting for you to know about that you could also enjoy if you come to Karon in Thailand – well folks read on because here comes Thailand Trip 2016 Day 3. A fuzzy head though this day means that basically I could not operate my camera until the evening – so this one truly does become a review and a review of our restaurant that evening – Two Chefs, Karon @ 32 Karon Road. +66 76 330 065 if you need it. It was busy so if you fancy a go it might be sensible to book. There are loads of these in a chain up and dow Phuket as well.
I’ll openly state now – not the best I have ever had. It was OK. But it was airy, big tables for our crowd, the beer flowed, the staff were quite funny actually (in a good way) – just sadly the food did let it down a little for me. More on that later as you will see. But first lets have some snaps of the evening – courtesy of photographer Amy.
Sad to say Two Chefs – this did not cut it for me. In fact I couldn’t cut the steak. The sauces were kinda OK, the steak though was pretty damn tough and tasteless, I reckon a little bit more seasoning and I would have been OK, but sadly again I ended up leaving this. I just didn’t like it. Mash and gravies were all I ate. Not too impressive. Looked good but flavour and cooking let it down a wee bit. Sorry Two Chefs but that is as it was this night.
Again I have to say it looks damn good. Really nice plated up. Colours look great, prawns butterflied etc etc. BUT, as I said don’t piss off a Filipino when it comes to seafood. After prawn #1 Mary goes; “Well the prawns aren’t fresh at all!!!” And that was that, the rest of the dish was disregarded. Two Chefs maybe again a bad night for some one, but old prawns not good guys, seafood as know is best when fresh. These were not. Tough and a little stinky. Mary won’t be having that ever again believe me. Such a shame because it does look really bloody good.
Now the one dish that rocked I didn’t get a picture of, and it is potentially the strangest dish that you’d go bananas over. Amy liked it so much she had it again on our last day before the dash to the airport. On the kids menu was Spaghetti Carbonara – simple as right. But boy oh boy oh boy this was absolutely incredible. What a pasta, what a dish. It was right up there in my reckoning as one of, if not the best that The Semi-Naked Chef has consumed. Yes folks I did nick a load from my poor hungry daughter’s dish, even after she tried to build a wall round her plate with menus, sauce bottles, salt and pepper pots etc. You get the picture. You have to try this one if you eat here. It is bloody good!!!
But for the finale here comes something I found quite amazing. Have you ever seen ice cream being made Thai style? Me neither. Sadly the battery in the camera deceased before the end, but watch the clip. This guy is amazing. Raw ingredients tipped on to a cold plate, fiddled with, chopped and then spread out thin thin to freeze. What I missed on the video was the next action which is using the spatula to curl up strips of ice cream and pop them in the serving carton. So you end up with literally little tubes of ice cream curls – quite amazing to watch, a first for me. This one was passion fruit, but there were all the flavours under the sun – this is a must must try, believe me.
