Savoring Local Seafood Delights

One of the many highlights of staying at The Vijitt Resort Phuket is the abundance of fresh seafood available at your fingertips, thanks to our prime location beside the beautiful Andaman Sea. With access to a diverse array of seafood, our talented chefs carefully craft dishes that highlight the natural flavors, leaving you with a true taste of the ocean.

Begin your culinary journey with a classic dish like Tom Yum Goong, a spicy and sour shrimp soup that will awaken your senses. The combination of fresh shrimp, fragrant lemongrass, and zesty lime makes this dish a vibrant representation of Thailand’s culinary prowess.

For something more unique, consider trying our Pla Nueng Manao, a steamed fish dish smothered in a tangy lime and chili sauce, a perfect marriage of flavors that will both refresh and satisfy your taste buds. Pair this seafood delight with steamed jasmine rice, and you’ll experience how simple, yet powerful, Thai flavors can be.


Exploring Iconic Thai Dishes

While our focus on seafood is tempting, there is a treasure trove of other iconic Thai dishes waiting to be tasted and adored by food enthusiasts. One such offering is Pad Thai, a universally loved noodle dish that never disappoints. Our rendition features plump shrimp, juicy tofu, crunchy peanuts, and tangy tamarind sauce, all elegantly combined to deliver an explosion of bold flavors and contrasting textures.

For a spicier affair, dare to try Som Tum, a green papaya salad, a perfect blend of sweet, sour, and spicy tastes that showcases its quintessential Thai flavors. This refreshing and crunchy salad, adorned with shredded green papaya, cherry tomatoes, long beans, peanuts, and dried shrimp, is the ultimate way to beat the tropical heat during your beach vacation.


Experience the Richness of Thai Curries

No culinary journey in Thailand is complete without trying delectable Thai curries, which offer a divine dimension of layered flavors and textures that are truly unparalleled. One incredibly popular curry is Gaeng Keow Wan, also known as green curry. Made from green chili paste, coconut milk, aromatic Thai basil, tender chicken or beef, and luscious eggplants, this lush curry is an ode to Thai food’s rich complexity.

If a thicker, slightly sweet curry suits your fancy, we highly recommend trying our Massaman Curry, an indulgent dish that exemplifies unique Thai and Persian influences. This curry features tender, slow-cooked meat in a velvety sauce infused with rich spices, such as cumin and cinnamon, alongside creamy coconut milk and roasted peanuts. This exquisite culinary creation is truly a must-try for those who seek to experience the height of Thai gastronomy.


Indulging in Sweet Thai Treats

No epicurean adventure can be complete without indulging in divine desserts. Thankfully, Thai desserts are just as captivating as their savory counterparts. Treat yourself to our Mango Sticky Rice, a heavenly concoction of luscious mangoes, chewy, fragrant sticky rice, and creamy, sweet coconut milk that will transport you to a paradise of flavors. This popular dessert is both satisfying and light, making it an ideal way to end a meal.

If you prefer something slightly cooler, opt for our delectable Tub Tim Krob, a traditional Thai dessert featuring crunchy water chestnut bites coated in silky tapioca flour, swimming in sweetened coconut milk. Served with crushed ice, this delightful dessert is a soothing cold treat that is perfect for hot afternoons by the beach.
