Fairytale Thai food in Saint-Tropez, Le BanH-Hoi

 

BanH-Hoi is truly one of my favourite spots in Saint-Tropez. I am in love with it’s atmosphere, vibe, location and most of all it’s amazing food. It’s a little hidden in-between the cute streets that lead you around town. But as soon as you walk into the right road you’ll notice the restaurant straight away. With it’s cute tables set in the middle of the road and light creating a fairytale like atmosphere. You walk into a little dream that is just going to get better.

What to have

I’m honestly in love with their menu. It’s so classic but with a little twist that will make you get excited. Everything they serve is colourful, full of honest and raw flavours and extremely high in quality. As I mentioned before, this is one of my favourite restaurants – however, I might even say this is my ultimate favourite. Yes, it’s that good.

 

Starter

As a starter I love ordering the Spinach filled Dim Sum. They are perfectly steamed filled with lots of spinach that’s so full of flavour. It’s a bomb of healthy green goodness and every mouth full is divine. It’s the best start to a delicious dinner.

 

 

Main

The ultimate main that you have to try is the Vegetable Basil Curry. This plate is overloaded with fresh crunchy vegetables bathing in a coconut curry sauce that is so creamy and rich. It’s honestly the best curry I have ever had as the flavours are fresh, comforting, tropical and they come together perfectly. I personally believe it’s the best dish on the menu.

As a side dish that’s a must try is the Sticky rice with coconut milk steamed in it’s bamboo stick. It’s unlike any rice you have ever tasted. It’s sweet, but not overly sweet. As soon as you take your first bite all the flavours kick in and as a finishing touch the bamboo flavour comes through. It’s absolutely amazing.

Another dish that is absolutely delicious are the Crispy vegetables rolls. They are perfectly crispy and filled with fresh vegetables. Served with lettuce and fresh mint you can decorate your own spring roll making it even more refreshing and tasty.

Perfect day in St-Tropez

The window blew open, the warmth quickly found its way inside, voices shouting “Bonjour!” outside my window. I could already smell the fresh croissants. I quickly jumped up, threw on a dress and followed my nose to the closest bakery.

After breakfast we found ourselves wondering around St-Tropez, but were determined to find a tiny secret beach that has been there for years but honestly forgot about the fact it even existed! After a long but beautiful walk we finally found our secret beach! – I forgot how beautiful it really is! The amazing thing is, not many people know about it. So it is never overcrowded and it has a very relaxing vibe! The food is amazing too, which you can enjoy at the tables but also on your bed while baking in the hot sun! The name of the beach is Plage Des Graniers, but lets keep this our secret!! Shhhh..

Now, let me tell you something about one of the best restaurants in St-Tropez. – At least in my opinion! Located in one of the small streets you will find a Thai restaurant. This Thai restaurant is not just a restaurant, it literally serves your dream food! It is absolutely incredible and a MUST visit! The colours and the flavours they serve on each plate is insane, with every single bite you will be closing your eyes and without even realising the corners of your mouth will lift. This food really does make you smile!

When I wonder around St-Tropez I love to walk past one of my favourite hotels. It is perfect for having a drink but even more amazing to stay the night! This hotel will blow your mind as the interior is extremely stunning. – Definitely my favourite hotel in St-Tropez! It is called Pan Dei Palais and is located on Rue Gambetta. It is quite hidden so you might easily walk past it! – And you definitely don’t want to miss this!

If I had to recommend any hotel it would definitely be this one! So go and have a look, you will LOVE IT just as much as I do!!
