The Avenue Phuket is permanently closed.
The Avenue Phuket offers high-quality snacks and dining, and an impressive range of beverages in the trendy environment of the Sino @ Bypass building, just behind Index Living Mall. In a side-road of high-end, high-price dining options, it has the same great food, but without the punishing price tags.
The Avenue Phuket is known for its signature burgers, but these make up only a small corner of the choices on the menu. The other options include a choice of salads, ranging from a simple grilled chicken salad (159 baht) up to a Caesar salad with smoked salmon (240 baht); grilled chicken, pork chop or white snapper (220, 250 and 270 baht respectively) and an impressive range of Thai dishes, from Pad Thai (100 baht) to Kang Khiew Hwan (green curry with pork, chicken or prawns – 150 baht).
The Avenue Phuket’s burgers are certainly impressive. Handmade from scratch, the thick patty is a slightly odd green colour, though it is not easy to spot under a drenching of melted cheese and a bed of fresh lettuce and tomato. They cost 190 baht for a pork burger and 220 baht for beef and are served with fries and a ‘secret recipe’ barbecue sauce, which looks and tastes a little bit like Thousand Island dressing with a little extra chilli in it. It does add a nice extra element to an already great taste.
The grilled chicken breast is also a good choice. Served with whole grilled garlic cloves and a shot glass of gravy, it both tasty and filling, not least because of the size of the portion!
At the bar is perhaps where The Avenue Phuket excels the most. It has a trendy design, using old wooden crates as shelves (and roofing tiles) on the bare brick walls, where you will find a choice of bottled craft beers and exotic spirits and liqueurs for making the eight classic cocktails (200 baht each) and 10 signature cocktails (260 baht each).
The beers include four drafts – Limburgese, Limburgese Rose, Bokkereyer and Bacchus (from 190 baht) –as well as seven craft beers and other ales and ciders. The award-winning La Corne Blonde ale (235 baht) is served in glass horn as has a very high alcohol percentage, as well as a nice bitter-sweet flavour.
A new attraction for the Sino @ Bypass building, The Avenue Phuket also hosts club parties with local DJs and dancing bringing a bit of Patong’s party atmosphere to the eastern side of the island. Its location also makes it ideal for a few after-work drinks for people working in Phuket Town.
