Phuket Lobster @ Kang Eang Pier, Phuket

We had our first dinner in Phuket at Kang Eang Pier after browsing through several websites to find out which Restaurant in Phuket serves up good seafood and offers a beautiful environment.

Kang Eang boasts a beautiful outdoor setting that overlooks the Sea and features a variety of live seafood that can be cooked using several methods. Phuket Lobster was definitely on our list of dishes to order as we picked a hugh 2.8KG Lobster in addition to other dishes.

2.5KG Lobster

Fried Oyster Omelet

We were hoping for a Crispy Omelet but got a rather soft Omelet. Nevertheless the Omelet was delicious. It was light, fluffy and contained a lot of mini-oysters that were not overcooked.

Tom Yam Goong
Tom Yam Soup
The Tom Yam Soup was spicy but had a nice Sour Taste that was balanced with a slight touch of Coconut Milk.

Green Chicken Curry

The Chicken Curry was rich and thick from the Coconut Cream used. It was really fragrant and went well with White Rice.

Pineapple Fried Rice

The Fried Rice was good but was not the best I've had. I wish it had more curry powder to give it more flavor

Grilled Calamari
Grilled Squid
The Squid was so tender and well seasoned!

Grilled Tiger Prawns

These were so fresh and good. The prawns are not overcooked and had a nice meaty texture! The Roe was also equally delicious.

Salt-Baked Fish
BBQ Fish
We were so stuffed when the Fish came but it was quite good nevertheless. It was moist and wasn't too salty.

Baked Lobster Thermidor

One of my all time favorite methods of cooking Lobster. The Lobster Meat had such a nice meaty texture and was very sweet. It went well with the Mustard Cream Sauce and of course Cheese :)

Grilled Lobster with White Wine and Garlic

Delicious as well! The Lobster was grilled perfect and went well with the White Wine and Dill.

Overall we thoroughly enjoyed the food at Kang Eang. One could definitely get better food at a cheaper price elsewhere but Kang Eang's beautiful setting, excellent service and good food more than makes up for the price.

Food: 4.3/5
