Brasserie Phuket

A Slice of Belgium in Phuket Town

Brasserie is located downtown Phuket and is a focal point for those who love good beer, European food, and a sophisticated atmosphere. For those who are familiar with Belgium brasseries entering this large restaurant will be somewhat uncanny as it really is a little bit of Belgium replicated to perfection.

There’s a central bar with several draught Belgium beers along with a large selection of bottled beers and spirits and separate dining areas including a clever ‘al fresco’ section which for all the world feels like sitting in a garden but in reality is an air-conditioned room.

Brasserie’s wait staff, mostly made up of local university students, are smartly dressed in maroon aprons, white shirts and black waistcoats, just like their counterparts in Brussels or Antwerp and are pleasantly efficient. We sit at the bar sipping on Delerium Nocturnal, a Belgium beer with a sense of humour in that its label sports pink elephants – what you will supposedly see after one glass too many.

Belgium food is understatedly rich in flavours and textures and is superbly complemented by its flavoursome and fruity, not to mention tiger-strength beers.

Brasserie has a full 12-page menu from which we choose moules a l’escargot, fresh imported mussels topped with butter, parsley and garlic with a touch of melted cheese on top. They’re served on a plate of hot white stones and both the visual and gastronomic effect is impressive. We also sample a wickedly effective trio of foie gras comprising duck liver terrine, pan-fried duck liver and duck liver paté. This is accompanied by perfectly prepared complimentary homemade bread (Brasserie also makes its own ice cream). The dish is an absolute delight.

North Sea sole meuniere prepared in clarified butter and served with steamed potatoes, lemon and parsley is a favourite Belgium dish and Brasserie gets it just right; as crisp and tasty as possible. A bottle of surprisingly robust Domaine Ott Clos Mirelle Rosé accompanies all this and by the time we’re served a scampi diavolo – fresh shrimps chole, garlic, tomato and cream with homemade fish stock and a taste of tarragon we’re really rather satisfied.

The décor, mood, service, drinks list and menu at Brasserie are without doubt first rate but it all comes at a price and this sort of quality will cost. Still, Brasserie serves only top-flight imported goods with hand-picked local produce and you can be sure that a lot of planning, experimentation and experience are behind the success of this restaurant. It’s highly recommended for a splash out.
