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.

BanH-Hoi is open everyday from 19.30- 23.30 and their address is 12 Rue du Petit Saint-Jean in St-Tropez.

A trendy spot serving the most exciting dishes in the city: MOOD, Eindhoven

 

MOOD is a popular restaurant in the middle of Eindhoven’s city centre. It’s designed beautifully and even though it has it’s modern look the vibes are extremely cosy, classy and trendy. It has an amazing atmosphere and from the moment you sit down you feel like you are in for a treat. Even though the inside of this restaurant is amazing, I love to sit on their buzzy terrace especially in the summer. Imagine a warm summer evening with some friends, sitting outside with a glass of wine and the most exciting dinner spread out for you on the table. For me, this is one of the most lively and exciting spots in the city where the atmosphere isn’t only inviting, the food is also absolutely delicious!

 

What to have

 

The menu here is irresistible – this counts for both non-vegans and vegans. The food they serve is a combination of French and Asian cuisine. It’s extremely vibrant, colourful and a little experimental at some points.

I love to start with a little picking and the perfect dish to place in the middle of the table are Edamame (€4,50/£4). Its a great dish to share and they are super delicious and very healthy, win win!

After some picking the real feast begins. I am personally in love with the Vegetarian sushiroll (€13.50/£12). They make this sushi roll colourful and extremely exciting as it’s full of flavours and textures. It’s beautifully presented on a plate and every bite is an explosion of flavours. The roll is made with asperges, (tamago for vegetarians), cucumber and avocado. It’s slightly sweet and refreshing at the same time. This is my ultimate favourite dish that I recommend to anyone!

As a side dish or even as a main for lunch or dinner I love getting the Thai mango salad (€8,50/£7.50). It consists of sweet and spicy avocado, cucumber, quinoa, and mango. It has lots of colours and flavours and it’s extremely refreshing – which is amazing especially in the summer.

 

Some days you have to be lucky to get the king of desserts. Because sometimes they make THE most delicious chocolate brownie I have ever tasted. This brownie tastes like everything you have ever dreamed off. It’s gooey from the inside and the outside layer is slightly crispy. It’s presented like art on a plate surrounded by strawberry sauce and fresh strawberries. The combination of the rich chocolate and the fresh strawberries is so powerful and extremely delicious. Trust me, this brownie overrules any vegan and non-vegan brownies, it’s THAT good.

 

 

Where to go

 

MOOD is open from Monday to Saturday at 12:00 – 23:00 and on Sunday from 14:00 – 23:00. They are located on Keizersgracht 6 in Eindhoven.

On weekends I highly suggest you book a table as it get’s very busy.

I’m sure you’ll fall in love with this spot just as much as I did! Bon a petit!
