Tatonka in Phuket

After a career straddling 17 different hotels in eight countries, rambling chef Harold Schwarz finally put down roots in Phuket to fuse Asian, Latino and Mediterranean influences into a menu he calls “Globetrotter Cuisine”. Located near Bangtao Beach, just outside the Laguna complex, the 50-cover Tatonka has a Native American theme running through it. A painted canvas stretched over the ceiling gives it a teepee feel, and Harold himself painted the murals on the wall of warriors hunting buffaloes (which is tatonka in Native American).

Mostly using local produce, his tapas-style menu offers delightful seafood and vegetarian dishes such as the Sashimi Tuna Spring Rolls accompanied by a dijon miso sauce and the Eggplant Cookies with creamy Goat’s Cheese and Sundried Tomatoes. Also recommended is the Saigon beef, fresh green mango and bacon for a hit of spice, the blackened bonito with cucumber seaweed salad and the Peking Duck Pizza. Don’t leave without ordering the Cool Coffee, a chilled mocha with coffee and vanilla ice cream, Kahlua and whipped cream.
