Recently appointed Food & Beverage Manager Pascal Frei kindly invited Phuketindex.com to visit East 88 Beach Lounge and sample three of the most requested items from their western menu.
Roasted Turkey, Grilled Chicken, Crispy Bacon, Romaine Lettuce, Tomatoes, Eggs, House Sauce in toasted bread serves with French fries and salad.
This is a simple and classic club sandwich with the added twist of roasted turkey, which certainly gives the sandwich an extra bit of flavour that it often needs. The smoked flavour from the crispy back further enhances the taste. The only disappointment was that Pascal would not divulge the ingredients for the special house sauce which really complemented this classic club sandwich. The sandwich was served with a good portion of crispy French fries and fresh salad.
East 88 Beef Burger
180 grams of beef with bacon, cheese, coleslaw, tomatoes, onions, gherkins and house sauce served
with French fries and salad.
You’re probably thinking a burger wow, well this is no ordinary burger, this is a real stomach filler. It’s amazing how they can manage to fit all the filling into the bun. If you like a burger, which I’m sure many of you do, you have to visit east 88 Beach Lounge and give this a try. Possibly the best burger available on the island! Once again, this burger is served with a generous portion of well cooked crispy French fries and fresh salad.
Andaman Tuna Steak
Shortly pan fried tuna steak served with asparagus and mushroom risotto, seasonal vegetables and balsamic sauce.
This fresh tuna steak was cooked to perfection and its fresh flavour combined so well with the subtle flavours from the asparagus and mushroom risotto. The seasonal vegetables were cooked just the way I like, not too soft with a slight crisp to them. The idea to serve this with a balsamic sauce was a marvelous choice. Fresh tuna steak at its best!
