There is a restaurant in Phuket that won a no.1 spot in my heart. I fell in love with a dish I never thought would surprise me and it’s called Massaman Lamb. It is, I believe, THE BEST MASSAMAN IN THE WORLD. That is a huge statement to make, so you can imagine how loved up I was, and still am.

Arriving at Blue Elephant is like a discovery on its own. Even more so if you go by tuk-tuk. The Portuguese mansion boasts elegant architecture with chic interior design, as you’re welcomed by polite staffs who speak and understand english perfectly. It’d be a shame not to visit this historical building that tells a beautiful story at the same time.

I rarely feature restaurant reviews so when I do, it means it is (fucking) good. And I can’t resist sharing these amazing dishes with you:
