PHUKET, THAILAND - THE NAI HARN, Phuket’s leading luxury resort, is inviting guests and foodies to break out the dirndls and lederhosen in honour of fine German cuisine and beer during a special (Rock)toberfest event to be held at the resort’s stylish Rock Salt beachside eatery on 6 – 7 October.
Transporting Bavaria’s best-loved festival to Phuket, diners will be able to enjoy a range of traditional house-made German specialties, including Bratwurst, Rostbratwurst and Weißwurst, all created specially for The Nai Harn by guest master butcher Marc-Frederic Berry, who trained the kitchen team to prepare all the items in house and will also attend the events himself.
Other delectable specialties on the menu will include Schweinshaxe, or roasted pork knuckle, and Flammekueche, the famous white pizza from the south of Germany. More familiar German classics such as Chicken schnitzel, as well as a modern interpretation of Black Forest Gateau will add to the unique gourmet attractions.
An Oktoberfest celebration wouldn’t be complete without Bavarian beers, and as diners soak up Rock Salt’s seaside atmosphere and savour the German flavours, they can sip on a variety of imported Bavarian brews. The line-up includes Kloster Weltenburg Dunkel, Kloster Weltenburg Urtyp, Erdinger Urweisse, Erdinger Dunkel and Erdinger Oktoberfest, each one offered at the special price of THB 220 per 0.5-litre bottle.
With a range of different treats on offer during lunch and dinner, guests can grab a bite and beer before heading to the beach during the day or, as the sun sets, absorb the ambience of stunning Nai Harn Bay while they enjoy soothing tunes from the decks of the resort’s new resident Thai DJ, LEEBREE, who spins his musical magic for an even more chilled holiday vibe. “The Nai Harn is known for its eclectic mix of world class cuisine and thanks to the enviable beachfront setting Rock Salt has become a favourite dining spot for hotel guests and Phuket residents,” says the resort’s General Manager, Frank Grassmann.
