Surin Gate Kitchen is a unique restaurant in more ways than one. The new fine eatery, which opened this November, is the masterpiece of Swedish chef Daniel Isberg. Surin Gate Kitchen offers some Swedish delicacies mixed with some Californian undertones and a few touches of Mediterranean cuisine.
During its first high season (Phuket’s high season lasts from now until March), Surin Gate Kitchen will be offering a Chefs Dinner special every Wednesday at 7:30 pm. For only 750 baht (about U$25), you’ll get a 4-course dinner of the chef’s best dishes. Any other day, you can choose from the menu, which includes everything from Swedish meatballs with lingonberries and pickled cucumber, to a 10-Hour Slow Roasted Pork Belly with a red onion marmalade, to a “Pop Rock” chocolate mousse with a berry compote. Main dishes cost anywhere from U$10 to U$25, while desserts sell for U$5.
Surin Gate Kitchen will offer different food-related events throughout the year. For example, chef Isberg says there are plans for “Bottomless Bloody Marys” days, Saturday Pool Party Brunches, and “cooking classes for the housewives in the area.”
The best part? Surin Gate Kitchen has a relaxed, come-as-you-want atmosphere. There’s no need for formal clothing and Isberg says you shouldn’t expect “white tablecloths” either. Do make a reservation, though, as the place gets crowded, especially on the weekends.
