Seafood is the standard

Brunching through the ocean

Saturday 16 July 2016, 02:16PM

Hello brunch.
Hello brunch.

Despite “low season”, Phuket does not seem to be running out of Sunday brunch options. What it is missing, though, is an option for those of us who do not want a three-ring circus with our brunch. Hilton Phuket Arcadia Resort and Spa’s Sails Restaurant has a quality brunch for those looking for a relaxing brunch, within a reasonable budget. Set next to the large pool, you can choose to sit outside and enjoy the view, or inside with the cool air conditioning and easy access to all the food you could possibly want.

It is everything you want in a brunch, complete with a fruity welcome drink. Arranged in order of meal courses, from salads and appetisers, to curries and roast meats, followed by breads and cheeses. The main attraction, of course, is the vast display of seafood on offer. On walking into the restaurant, you cannot miss the extravagant display of beautifully cooked lobsters, crabs, scallops, and mussels alongside sushi and sashimi.

The highlight of it all, however, was the incredibly fresh, sumptuous oysters. We gorged ourselves. We may have been responsible for depleting what was initially a vast population of oysters laying peacefully on the chilled bed, and leaving only a handful of survivors behind.
Paired with lemons or lime (yes, they have both!), fried onions or Catalina sauce, the oysters were fresh and fairly addictive. The lobsters were cooked simply, in a manner that allowed their natural flavouring and delicacy to shine.

For those looking for a more “traditional” brunch, roast options were in full force. Roasted chicken, marinated rib-eye with mustard and a roasted lamb leg with herbs are on display, with an attentive carver ready to give you your preferred cut. The lamb leg and rib-eye were both cooked to medium-rare, but if you prefer your meat less pink, there is also a dish of beef medallions in a balsamic reduction that is bound to please the pickiest of eaters. All can be eaten with the tried-and-true perfect side of mashed potatoes, and with a side of gravy and pepper sauce.
The cheese selection, with its myriad varieties of soft and hard cheeses (and goat cheese!) is any cheese-lover’s dream, and really, if there is nothing else that appeals to you at brunches, this is what you should go for. We happily filled our plates with the different cheeses and stuffed ourselves the best we could. There were many cheeses that you cannot find easily out here, from the Tommy de Savoie and Le Montagnard to the roquefort and Chabichou de Poitou with its flavourful crust and creamy core.

We, miraculously, also managed to nibble at dessert. The chocolate fondue fountain is a draw for children, surrounded by skewered fruit ready to be dipped into delicious warm milk chocolate. The bread pudding, hot and homey in the tureen is made bright and smooth with the additions of the mixed berry compote and custard. There are cheesecakes, chocolate pastries, mango pudding, tiramisu along with ice cream with toppings on offer.

Sunday Glitz at Sails is a solid choice, ready to cater to a variety of preferences. At B1,400++ per person, it is also one of the more competitive options available on the island. If you’re with a large party of picky eaters, or are looking for a quiet brunch to nurse your hangover, this is where you need to be.

"stuffed ourselves" reminds of  some of the Tourists from   "certain Countries" that stuff themselves at Buffet Breakfasts !
