An excellent steak house in Phuket Town
Best Country Beef is the place to treat yourself if you are craving a perfectly cooked steak after a day exploring the Old Phuket Town. The restaurant is on Dibuk Road, in an old-fashioned house with a wooden facade that reminds a bit of an old Japanese shop. Inside is a long and welcoming dining room half occupied by the open kitchen. The choice of steaks is attractive, and while the prices may appear a little high at first, they are justified considering the quality of the meat.
For the beef, the chef will be happy to describe the many aged cuts available in the front glass fridge, mostly Thai Wagyu Beef from the northeast of Thailand. Thai Wagyu is a crossbreed between Japanese or Australian wagyu and the cuts are scored depending on their marbling, and prices somehow follow that marbling score.
We shared a 500 gr New York Steak 2-3 aged 45 days (1,450 baht) that was truly cooked to perfection, something that is not as easy as seems to find in Phuket. We also bought an excellent 45 days aged Rib-Eye scoring 11-22 to enjoy back home. At 280 baht, the Thai Wagyu burger is also a must-try!
If your friends are not meat lovers, Best Country Beef also serves fish, pasta and even Thai food. Everyone can find something delicious to enjoy dinner: Spaghetti Bolognese (290 baht) or Carbonara (220 baht), Spaghetti Kang Poo (with local crab, 290 baht) or a good old beef basil fried rice (100 baht).
Best Country Beef Phuket is an excellent surprise in many ways. The tenderness of the meat, superb taste and perfect cooking are the key ingredients to the experience, but the location is also convenient is you spent the afternoon exploring the Old Phuket Town. The restaurant is located on Dibuk Road, opposite Wat Mongkol Nimit and near the famous Romanee Street, where people love to take selfies.
