Next stop on our journey is Amari Palm Reef Resort Koh Samui.
Here we will spend 4 nights. This resort is located on the quiet northern end of Chaweng Beach. This resort has a casual Italian dining concept. Specializing in pizza & pasta, the restaurant has an open kitchen, enabling guests to not only taste the delicious cuisine but watch and smell it cooking as well.
This is very interesting from my side as one would expect a more exotic cuisine in Thailand. Reading about the cuisine this is what I have come up with -
In Thailand, there is no such thing as a starter; neither is there any dish that belongs only to one person. As a general rule, Thai diners order the same number of dishes as people present; however, all dishes are shared and enjoyed together. For this reason, it is better to have many guests at the table rather than just one or two. In fact, many Thais believe that eating alone is bad luck.
A typical Thai meal includes four main seasonings: salty, sweet, sour, and spicy. Indeed, most Thai dishes are not considered satisfying unless they combine all four tastes. When eating out, a group of Thai diners would order a variety of meat and/or fish dishes, plus vegetables, a noodle dish, and possibly also soup. Dessert may consist simply of fresh fruit, such as pineapple, or something more exotic, such as colourful rice cakes, depending on the region.
