Breakfast @ The Tamarind Restaurant, The Village, Coconut Island – Phuket Trip Day 2

On the second day of our stay, the children slept in a bit, only Sam was awake and whilst on his way out he saw that I was already up and about so he invited me to join him for breakfast.

The sun rose... Its radiance blinding, but what a wonderful experience this was. As you may have read in my peer awards "about me" section, I'm nocturnal so I seldom get to see sunrise.

We looked around and I spotted this table so we parked our butts there after whirling through the buffet and egg station.

These were items of Sam's of choice. I only recognised Croissants, Gyozas and perhaps Beef Ball Stroganoff and Lasagna?  Not too sure as I was busy eating a couple of bowls of the most awesome Pork Porridge.

Fried Rice Vermicelli as an accompaniment to pork porridge. There's eggs and some scallions in the otherwise plain vermicelli. Topped with bird's eye chillies, they were yummilicious!

I seldom eat breakfast and when I do, I'd normally skip lunch. I cannot partake 3 meals a day as that will give me gastric, weird eh? But I can have 2 big meals a day without problem.

Breakfast has been priced into our room and board so it’s free! Sam and I were the last guests they accepted that morning for a young lady and her farang boyfriend were turned away ten minutes after we started to eat. I didn’t know we were that late. No wonder the young Thai cook at the station was not exactly happy (he wasn’t rude, maybe that’s just his face) when we placed our orders but he did wish me a happy breakfast when passing me the plate of fluffy Spanish omelet consisted of mushrooms and ham. Sam had an extra ingredient in his omelet – say, cheese 😉

The Tamarind Restaurant was so named because it is nestled underneath a beautiful tamarind tree, overlooking the front pier (there’s two piers and where we embark/disembark would depend on the tide) which we walked daily to catch a longtail to Phuket for our dinners.

We enjoyed a very relaxing brekkie set against the backdrop of Phang Nga Bay and with cool breeze blowing through from the Andaman Sea. I love hotel breakfasts, they seldom go wrong and I have no complaints here. I ate all my food without the need for extra seasonings. The buffet spread had reasonable selection and the food was kept at right temperature.

As long as the sun is out, so will the sunbathers. The heat is on!

Tamarind Restaurant is the most ideal place for sunbathers to take refuge from the beach to grab a refreshing light grub or something more substantial. In the evenings, their menu transforms into a wide array of authentic dishes from all over the Kingdom of Thailand. All of Tamarind’s local dishes are prepared by experienced chefs.

After breakfast, we chatted with the waiter and learnt that Pepsi would be there with slightly under 200 covers for lunch. Does it mean the restaurant is closed for Pepsi’s private function? If so, where are my sleeping kids going to eat? A petty mother’s worry is never ending.

Oh well, you’ll get to see what they ate soon. I can hear them stirring 😉

    That seemed like a very nice breakfast. I don’t usually eat breakfast either. I tend to not be very hungry in the mornings, I do, however, really enjoy breakfast type foods. The location seems very relaxing!

    Amazing – you only eat 2 meals a day. From this blog, I had the impression you ate 5 meals a day.
