The good old British Sunday Roast is a traditional dish served on Sunday that consists of roasted meat, roast potatoes, Yorkshire pudding, stuffing, vegetables and gravy. Many visitors and residents in Koh Samui enjoy a great roast dinner on a Sunday, no matter where they come from. Those who fancy superior versions of all of the essential elements in the perfect Sunday lunch choose to take theirs at The Larder.

Roast dinner at the larderThe Larder is a restaurant in North Chaweng that has found the perfect harmony between fine dining and a homely atmosphere with a very warm welcome. Executive chef Martin Selbey together with food and beverage aficionado Damian Ahern who created The Larder have this to say about their little gem of an eatery “Our philosophy is to not rely on a stunning view to distract you from less-than-average food. Forget about fancy table settings and elaborate décor. You will not find waiters with white gloves here…but what you will find is high-end food, served in a provincial and approachable way.” That statement is certainly true.

Continually meeting the needs of their discerning customers this culinary duo have now created what can only be described as the perfect Sunday Roast and, for a restaurant of this standard, at a very affordable price. For only 450 baht you can find yourself tucking into incredibly tender and cooked to perfection meats, farm fresh vegetables that retain all of the crunch and flavor other venues boil out, deliciously rich and creamy cauliflower cheese, soft on the inside, crunchy on the outside roast potatoes and top of the range high end flavorsome, and perfectly seasoned gravy.

Each Sunday Martin prepares two meats for you to choose from, or enjoy a mixture of if you prefer be it lamb, chicken, pork or beef. As the perfect accompaniment to Sunday Roast there is a fabulous ‘make your own’ Bloody Mary Bar that has vats of spicy or non spicy tomato juice, vodka and a stunning array of things to use in your drink, chili, onions, beans, walnuts, onions, capers, cucumber, olives, carrots, the larder Sunday roastpickled onions, red and yellow peppers, bacon, asparagus to mention just a few of course before you blend your idea of the perfect Bloody Mary you will need to chose between, salt and pepper, salt and pepper with lemon zest, paprika salt pepper and garlic powder or Cajun salt and pepper for the rim of your glass. The Bloody Mary Bar is only 200 baht a glass and the perfect hangover cure, just in case you need one! And if Bloody Mary is not your thing of course there is a fully stocked bar and lashings of Thatchers Gold Cider.

The Larder has outdoor al-fresco dining as well as indoor air-conditioned dining for those who do not want the heat to get in the way of digging in to a very generously portioned Roast Dinner that is well worth taking its time over.
