If you follow me on Insta, you may have seen that I travelled to Koh Samui a few weeks ago. The food was AMAZING, so I thought I would share a guide on where to eat. I love food – who doesn’t?!
Koh Samui has lots of options for vegetarian/vegan food too!
Zazen Boutique Hotel & Spa. We had breakfast every morning at our hotel as it was included in the package. There was lots of western options, from pancakes, to french toast, to scrambled eggs. As well as eastern dishes, with noodles, fried eggs and vegetables.
We also had dinner at Zazen twice. The first time I had spring rolls and a cashew dish, alongside some runner beans. The second time I had a thai curry, which was delicious.
Zazen also had happy hour from 5-8pm. Joe and I had far too many cocktails – not too bad for 100 baht (£2.65) each! The banana daiquiri’s were delightful!
Fisherman’s Village. On a Friday night, Fisherman’s village is a popular area to come for street food and shopping.
As we’d already eaten at 2 Fishes (which is a fab Italian restaurant near Fisherman’s Village) we said we MUST try something, so we opted for ice cream rolls for dessert. Mhmm.
Flavours. In Bophut there is a steak restaurant named Flavours. Although we weren’t eating steak, it had some great Italian food on the menu.
I had pesto pasta – which I’m still dreaming about, and Joe had a vegetarian pizza.
Celes SeaGrille Restaurant. On our first day, Joe and I were walking along the beach and spotted a beautifully decorated seafood restaurant. Joe had a mushroom risotto and I had a lobster burger. Both delicious, but very pricey for what we had. It was attached to a resort, so that explains why it was rather expensive.
We found a little gem in Bophut named mr.kai Kitchen, a small thai restaurant that was really affordable and made the most amazing dishes for about £9 per person, including drinks!
We started with veggie tempura – which was AMAZING! And then devoured sweet and sour chicken (cheated on my veggie diet once again, whoops), and an array of vegetable dishes.
Hands down the BEST restaurant we went to. We loved it so much, that we went twice in a row!
Another great restaurant for AMAZING pizza’s was Pizzeria Bellavita. I had a margarita pizza and Joe had one with a mix of vegetables on – both delicious! 10/10, would highly recommend!
And last but by no means least, we had another Italian (what can I say, we love our Italian dishes) treat at 2 fishes. Which sadly had no veggie options. However, the carbonara was gorgeous. As was Joe’s tomato and garlic gnocchi.
