Baan Taley Rom’s personal chef prepares daily breakfast, lunch and dinner. An extensive menu features Asian and some Western dishes, which can be tailored to suit guests’ preferences (including special dietary requirements). Children’s dishes can be prepared to satisfy the fussiest of eaters.
Menu choices include fresh seafood appetizers, such as crispy catfish with green mango salad or mackerel with chilli sauce, and main courses featuring locally caught seafood grilled to perfection or a variety of soups and curries. If you’ve still got room for desert, why not finish off with pumpkin in coconut milk or mango on sticky rice?
The menu offers an excellent choice of Thai and vegetarian set meals or individual dishes (in which case provisions are charged at cost plus a 20% handling fee and a government tax, with a minimum shopping fee of THB 750). A modest selection of Western dishes may be prepared on request, and the chef is happy to customise meals to guests’ preferred levels of spiciness and flavouring. For those who don’t know a ho mok from a som tum, the chef is there to offer guidance in exploring Thai cuisine.
Guests are encouraged to plan their meals together with the villa manager and chef, ideally a day in advance to allow time to buy groceries and prepare meals. The staff will keep all receipts from their shopping for reference.
