Koh Lanta Restaurants – Moo Uan “The Fat Pig”
Moo Uan – “The Fat Pig” is located in the heart of Saladan, and with the dining area built right on the dock, it doesn’t get more authentically island than this. Views across to Koh Lanta Noi make you feel like you could swim right across, and kids will love to look over the edge at the small fish swimming underfoot in the clear water, filtered by the nearby mangrove forests. With an extensive cocktail list featuring several signatures, adults will enjoy the friendly atmosphere of the entrance lounge, where you’re greeted with a smile by the happy and attentive staff. Families and groups can settle in closer to the water, to peruse the mouth-watering fusion menu that features the best of several regions. Appetizers from around the world and classic Thai flavours are on offer here, as well as some delightfully modern salads and sandwiches with ingredients both trendy and local. For dinner, try one of the Thai signature dishes, featuring items that you won’t find at your standard food stall, like the delicious tom yum salmon – a fillet poached in coconut and served in a spicy tomato broth, or the juicy beef tenderloin with veggies in a black pepper and garlic sauce. Pastas are classy and fresh, prepared in such options as carbonara, salmon and asparagus, or the augusta with bacon, shrimp and mushrooms. Ribs and steaks are featured as main courses, and for the burger lovers, beef, chicken breast or veggie patties are served up in your choice of ten different ways, ranging from the classic cheese and bacon to the extraordinary with toppings like blue cheese, caramelized onions, egg or chorizo sausage. True to form, Moo Uan offers desserts in both Thai and familiar flavours – try out the mango sticky rice or toffee pudding. With massive points for island style decadence and food to drool over, definitely put Moo Uan on your list while you’re in Saladan.
