Mom Tri's Boathouse Wine & Grill @ Kata Beach, Phuket

How can we not visit the Mom Tri's Boat House after we've been pestering Ade for this French-Thai fine dining place in Phuket that she was raving about. The Mom Tri's Boat House is located at Kata beach, facing the Andaman Sea. So, it's definitely a popular place for enjoying dinner and wine with the Andaman sunset. When we were there, all of us had the same observation. We were the only Asians in the restaurant and were among the most under-dressed list, still in our T-shirts, sandals and (almost dried) beach berms.

Our Phuket holiday was so packed with back to back activities like shopping, spa trips and beach bumming that we had to have dinner at 8.30pm, where the sun had long gone,hidden beneath the horizon. To enjoy dinner at Mom Tri's, book a table in the evening for that romantic dinner with that special other half. We were all with our special other halves though, but we all seemed to be way pass that dinner with the sunset thingy and went straight for the food. We were hungry after being beaten up by the Andaman waves at Pansea beach.

Here's some dishes that I thought was good.

Complimentary cheese and vegetable soup
We were all given complimentary soup which went well
with the breads and this cheesy soup went well wth cheesy me.

Deep Fried Seafood Cakes
served with sweet chilli sauce and plum sauce
This thai appetiser seems to be the 'must try' for every meal
we had. It must be the fresh local seafood and the appetizing
sauces that made this dish so appealing.

Rock Lobster Crispy Hebs and Tamarind Sauce
corriander, spring onion and lettuce garnish
Both W and I liked this appetizer. This salad is refreshing
with the tamarind sauce on the greens. The chinks of natural
sweet rock lobster added that contrasting taste.

Grilled Australian lamb chops, vegetable
çale rosemary sauce
The lamb chops were by default medium rare and were tasty and
juicy enough. The taste didn't really raised our eye brows though.

Grilled Pork chop Flavoured with
çale rosemary sauce, crush potatoes, virgin olive oil
We all thought HY's choice of mains was the best grill on the table. The pork
chop was grilled and went well with the rosemary sauce. Every one of us liked it.

Crêpe with mango and vanilla ice cream

An interesting mix of 3 scoops and ice cream and sherbet
Coconut, Passion Fruit and Chocolate

There's a list of ice cream and sherbets to choose from.

The Boat House was known for their outstanding wine list. So it has to be one of the restaurant to visit for that wine lover.

The service at the restaurant was good and my only regret was not having a big enough appetite to try their Thai main dishes other than the grills that we had.

Cost : About 6800 That baht for 4 people without wine.
