Dusit Thani Gourmet Salad

Dusit Gourmet Salad: 280 baht ++ (9.19 USD)
Dusit Thani Hotel, Hua Hin, Thailand

I was staying at the Dusit Thani while I was in Hua Hin over last weekend for business. The Royal Trophy Golf Championships were in full swing, our company was sponsoring it, and I had volunteered to assist our global COO and CEO, which was an amazing experience in itself. That also helps to explain what I was doing staying at the Dusit, which is considered one of the best and most classic of all the Thai hotels.

Three freshly baked bread rolls proved to be
a delicious appetizer 
It was late one night and because of the massive buffet I had eaten that afternoon, I only became hungry at 9:00 pm. Not wanting to have a full meal, I decided to go for a salad, which turned out to be a meal on its own.

The Dusit Gourmet Salad consisted of smoked duck breast, Brie cheese on seasonal salad leaves, red onion and tomato, and was served with walnut and raspberry dressing. The smoked duck was firm but tasty while the vegetables fresh, crispy and flawless.

It came with a hearty serving of Brie cheese, which helped to add a hearty flavour to the salad, and its soft taste complemented the sharper tinge of the excellent vinegrette.

At 280 baht ++ (9.19 USD), it's considered very expensive in a place where a local lunch would fill you up and set you back only 100 baht at most (3.28 baht). Nevertheless, the prices are standard for a hotel of this caliber, and it was certainly a salad which didn't hold back.
