White box winner 2016/2018 of hapa awards
an impressive three-storey complex by kalim beach, this is a one-stop experience for dinner, drinks, and an after party. one of the few beach-side establishments in west phuket, this is an hour and a half’s ride from patong, past rolling hills and stunning sea views. built on huge granite rocks, white box is like the beach house you’ve always wished you had: tastefully decorated in white with an expansive view of the surrounding sea and coasts, serviced by a superb kitchen and wait staff.
food here is 'mediterranean asian' shot through with refined french sensibilities, revolving around seafood-heavy plates. hokkaido scallops are served as a light carpaccio atop a bed of wilted spinach and pickled artichoke hearts, then dressed with little more than olive oil and a touch of lime. the sweet flesh of alaskan crab is layered with apples, celery, and avocado for a delightful 'mille-feuille' of bright flavours. sea bass is baked in a buttery crust alongside truffled pomme puree and a spicy mango 'rougail', while tender monk fish is served atop a heady saffron risotto, with grilled parisian mushrooms and a creamy mustard-spiked sauce. red meat comes in the form of duck, roasted and served with a garnet port sauce, or grilled and served with honey-touched greens. there’s also beef and lamb, turned into rich curries or served smoking from the grill with a side of savoury jus. the meal is so rich you may want to tumble home after, but make sure to stay for cocktails and a rocking dj set after the spectacular sunset and party the night away in one of phuket’s shining beach-side gems.
