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.

We had a rather late lunch due to the very heavy breakfast, and finally settled for Spring by Sanyod while we were roaming about in Central World. This appeared to be a Chinese-Thai fusion restaurant. Here’s what we had, and I think the fried items were probably the better ones:
- Seafood Tom Yum Soup: Not bad at all. There was a good balance of sour and spicy, so I didn’t choke on it the way I sometimes do back in Singapore.
- Hong Kong Collard Greens with Oyster Sauce: Pretty standard Hong Kong Kailan with oyster sauce
- Green Curry (Chicken) with Rice: This was just alright… somehow it did not quite have the “kick” to it.
- Deep Fried Fish Topped with Spicy Sauce: With the Thai spicy sauce, this dish was quite appetizing.
- Deep Fried Chicken Wings in Red Wine Sauce: Definitely one of my favourites!
- Deep Fried Shrimp Cakes: Another of my favourites, simple dish with yummy dip.
- Crispy Fish Maw Spicy Salad: This was very interesting, with rather unexpected texture and taste. The fish maw was deep fried till crispy, much like crackers, while the thinly-sliced squid pieces were deep fried as well, but had a more chewy texture.
With drinks, our total bill for 5 adults came up to be THB1358, inclusive of 7% VAT.
