The food in Thailand is awesome. No other way to put it. The restaurants can be amazing. But one thing I find myself missing is a good steak.

There are plenty of steaks in Thailand. But when it comes to finding something along the lines of “Morton’s”, “Ruth’s Chris” or one of the many serious steakhouses in the United States, I have never seen anything that comes close.

That is until recently – when Khun Por and I went to Cherngtalay and had dinner and drinks at Cut Grill & Lounge. Situated on a lake with an excellent view of the sunset.

Cut has a large selection of grilled meats such as steak, lamb, pork, and chicken. I had the 1 1/2 to 2 inch thick steak in the picture above and it was delicious and cooked evenly and just as I asked. The sides and asparagus was also great.

The menu also includes tapas, seafood, pizza, and pasta. The cocktails were well made and didn’t skimp on the “primary active ingredients”.

Great seafood is easy to find in Phuket. Now it’s great to see I can get a great steak.

The restaurant has a decorative pool just next to the lake.
