Dine in Indian Influence
One of the most exciting resorts in Phuket, Keemala, launched its brand in the woodlands setting, a wonderland with accommodations that made the best use of Kamala Bay’s lush tropical garden. Amidst their 38 pool villas and cottages is their Mala Restaurant that serves guests all day deliciousness inspired by local Phuket Peranakan cuisine. What makes this place special is the fact that they have a full Indian menu for all meals – from breakfast to lunch and dinner. The explanation is that the Indian influence serves as the root of Malay food, hence a part of Phuket Peranakan culture.
Mala serves breakfast from 6am until 11.15am, making it perhaps the longest breakfast on the island. Their à la carte and buffet menus offer up Indian choices such as masala dosa (Indian crêpe with lentials and vegetable sambar and coconut chutney), Medu vada (south Indian doughnut) and Idli (rice and lential cake) to be washed off with a masala tea. Lunch and dinner feature a full Indian menu with favourites such as butter chicken, vegetable samosa, tandoori and tikka.
