WHY GO? Helmed by chef-patron Luigi Sica, La Grappa has become something of a Hua Hin institution loved by a loyal clientele for the chef's authentic Italian cuisine and a superb wine list.
WHAT TO ORDER? Begin with the slow-cooked veal tonato served with tuna sauce and topped with tender seared tuna and sesame seeds. It has a wonderful salty tang and the sesame seeds provide crunch. Also good is the beautifully presented citrus-marinated salmon tartare with passionfruit sauce and wasabi cream. For mains, the signature dish of 270-day grain-fed Australian black angus beef cooked rossini style is excellent. It comes with mashed sweet potato and broccoli florets, foie gras and a rich madeira wine truffle sauce. Another equally appealing signature dish is the homemade veal ravioli in a parmesan fondue with white truffle foam and shaved black truffle. The richness of the dish is best appreciated with a glass of chilled prosecco. End the meal with bavarian mango mousse topped with amaretto crumbs and a refreshing passionfruit sauce. Also good is one of the homemade ice creams enjoyed with a shot of strong expresso.
Drinks A well-balanced and comprehensive wine list caters to all tastes and budgets. Not surprisingly, Italian wines are the main focus here, although other regions are also available.
