So we went on a short vacation (again), after hubby finished his BIG project of the year! This time we went Phuket on accepting an invite from my friend from Marriott Vacation Club!
We took a 25-minute stroll from Marriott Vacation Club to this highly recommended restaurant outside the resort. It was a fairly straight forward route, just turn left upon exiting the main gates, and follow the road till we reached the main road. From there, we turned left again and continue to walk till we past by a tiny local shop. Right across it was an air-conditioned mini-mart, with a small road leading inwards to Kin Dee Restaurant.
We were glad that we made it in time, because barely 10 minutes after we were seated, it started to rain! We enjoyed the food so much that we decided to order in the next day. They deliver directly and free to the resort (we just need to meet them at the gates), and it costs the same as eating in. No additional tax or service charge, making this a cheaper alternative to food within the resort. We did find that food quality dropped for delivery, e.g. fried stuff were no longer as crispy or hot, so a bit of walking is still highly recommended! Or you could pay 500B for a return trip with the local taxi, inclusive of the driver’s waiting time. Not very worth in our opinion, since it was just a 6 minute ride.

After our walk from Yung Shue Wan 榕树灣 to Sok Kwu Wan 索罟灣, we deserved a good lunch!
We also missed the ferry by 15 minutes or so, and it was a good 2 hours wait for the next one. The restaurants were well aware of the schedule too, as one called out to us, telling us that it was a long wait to before the next ferry would come and so we should have lunch while waiting, and another one tried to entice us with their private ferry schedule…
We walked up and down the stretch of restaurants (and seeing the ever popular Rainbow Seafood) before finally deciding on Tai Yuen Shark’s Fin Seafood Restaurant 泰苑鱼翅海鲜酒家 and ordered the set for 2 (HKD 248). It was probably the cheapest set available across all restaurants, and the ala-carte menu also had prices listed, unlike some others, so we felt more comfortable eating here.
Here for dinner after a stroll from office… I wanted to jog, but old le… 😦
We walked from Botanic Garden MRT along Bukit Timah Road and passed by our usual hunt in Cluny Court, and then a changed in sign made us looked up. This used to be Burger Shack, but has now revamped itself into Little Hiro, a Hawaiian-Japanese BBQ & Grill eatery. The owner is the son of the owner of Island Creamery, and Little Hiro was the result of his creative juices after attending a wedding in Hawaii which ended with a Hawaiian-style BBQ. Little Hiro is a tribute to the groom’s father and chef at the BBQ (whose name is Hiro).
