Koh Samui recs

great thanks!

Koh Samui recs

Hi - I have a few friends going to Koh Samui for a 5 days, anyone have any recs?

They're americans with not too much experience with Thai food, but I've taken them to real Isaan places in NY and they loved it and they're pretty open to trying new stuff.

Thanks!

yah u need to add black vinegar and chili oil, its not spicy enough on its own and the vinegar adds a really nice flavor dimension

yah it got really popular after that danny bowien interview and then some of the press after that, but the food is exactly the same. the owner is really nice, so I'm happy her business is doing well

i don't go at peak hours, i generally go just slightly off and usually get a seat immediately. its walking distance from where i live, so its easy

Hakksan dish recs

Hakksan dish recs

Chandavkl - I was there on a thurs, most of the tables were filled. I wouldn't say it was jammed, most of the tables were filled and there were some people at the bar waiting for tables. As Shirang said, the location is def less that desirable

btw i started pulling some pics from the dinner up on my facebook.com/lauhound and my instagram lauhound_blog

Hakksan dish recs

i got the Hakka steamed dim sum platter, peking duck, grilled Chilean sea bass with honey, spicy prawns, crispy chicken and fish fried rice (actually 2 orders of it as it was good) and the chocolate mille feuille.

i liked everything, the peking duck was the best dish as expected

fyi, ive been here a few times, but this was the first time in a while. I'm thinking about going more to finally review it
