As the last fiery embers of sunset sink into the sea, a winding stone pathway speckled with flickering candles lights up through the jungle thickets. Come and enjoy Farm fresh food from KEP Phuket restaurant in Chalong. Sweet floral aromas dance on the evening breeze, exotic orchids and wild ginger flowers adding pops of color along the forest floor. Rounding a bend, delighted gasps arise at the sight of a charming open-air restaurant glowing under strings of festive lights. KEP is one of Phuket’s, top picturesque venues blends seamlessly into its surroundings and an alfresco oasis with views clear out to the Andaman Sea’s glittering turquoise expanse, along the marina bay. Where all of the yachts set sail everyday.
Making your way between suspended planters overflowing with rare indigenous herbs, hand-painted murals depict colorful hornbills and playful monkeys frolicking amongst tropical foliage. Etched tribal symbols on reclaimed teak tables hint at generations past who gathered daily blessings in these very jungles. As the last plum streaks of sunset fade from the skyline, you now dine in an emerald canopy aglow under a rising crescent moon.
Farm-Fresh Cuisine That Captivates
And this ethereal venue is only elevated by the cuisine of KEP’s chefs and them being native to of Phuket. Whose dishes artfully intertwine European techniques with the vibrant soul of Thai street food. As one bite of grilled chicken skewers in a nuanced turmeric marinade sends your senses reeling, you realize this is Thai flavor at an elevated level you’ve never encountered before. Yet simultaneously unfussy, approachable, fun – the complexity unfolding naturally, harmoniously with each bite.
KEP sources over 80% of its produce from an on-site organic garden as well as nearby farms on the island. Signature dishes utilize indigenous veggies and herbs rarely spotted on Phuket menus elsewhere. Take the green papaya salad tossed tableside featuring uncommon wingbeans picked that morning just steps away. Or sample the banana blossom larb with nuanced notes of foraged wild betel leaves and edible Acacia fern shoots thriving sustainably in KEP’s own grounds.
