Set among a whimsical rustic garden, tucked away from the busy tourist attractions of southern Phuket in Chalong, Cane Crush, formerly known as Chalong Bay Distillery & Bar, is serving up unique, creative dishes and pairing them with inventive cocktails using their internationally acclaimed and award-winning rum, distilled and bottled on site.
Guests can relax in the open-air, thatched roofed restaurant while sitting amongst the sugarcane stalks and taking in the view of the copper still imported from France.
Evening is a particularly magical time to enjoy a meal under the stars with dim, playful lighting illuminating the garden.
The menu, consisting of a variation between Mediterranean and Asian starters, salads and mains, while each barring their own pairing menu, has been carefully designed by Chalong Bay’s Chef Oil, a Le Cordon Bleu alumni.
Her rustic cuisine uses fresh, quality ingredients that serve to bring people together with distinctive comfort food that is made to be shared.
Some must-try dishes include the Roasted Chicken with Wild Mushrooms paired with the Sweet Hammock Naps cocktail from the Mediterranean pairing menu and Coconut Sticky Rice with Coconut Ice Cream served with the Mango Bliss cocktail, a playful take on a traditional mango-sticky rice, from the Asian Pairing menu.
Whether you want to spend a leisurely afternoon with friends playing games, sipping on delicious drinks and enjoying a relaxing lunch, or a romantic evening with your sweetheart surrounded by incredible food and cocktails, Cane Crush is the perfect place to unwind, enjoy life and be yourself – island style.
