F.A.T Table stands for “Food.Art.Town Table,” and is happening on February 9–10 this weekend. This is the type of culinary event where you’ll get to see — and taste — the sun-drenched island of Phuket through a well-curated full-course dinner.

Lacing the table with rare and remarkable ingredients from 11 seaside communities of Phuket, this local community-inspired chef’s table dinner is set to depict the vigorous spirit of Phuket’s top-notch produce and cuisine. Here’s who’s cooking: Chef Black and Chef Beer from Blackitch Artisan Kitchen; Chef Tel, a former chef of 80/20; Chef Mon from Kaab Gluay Restaurant and Win, a talented bartender from Dibuk House.

Following the success of their first F.A.T event last year, the event is again co-hosted by Attitude Stay, SO Phuket, Thai Vietjet Airline, Mekhong and Dibuk House Restaurant. The concerted collab between chefs and celebrated corporations will once again generate a tuneful chef table-themed dinner that represents more than just a Southside cuisine — it represents this Andaman community as a whole.

This year, the hyper-local dinner also goes by the name “Mon Ruk Pon Talay” (the Overseas Love Mantra), which clearly suggests that the menu will be highly associated with the sea. So as you can already guess, all the main components will be sourced from 11 seaside communities within Phuket. Celebrating their depths of tastes and textures, the locally-sourced ingredients will tastefully turn into four smashing appetisers, one stellar main and two splendid desserts along with four booze-basted cocktails.

Those hankering for a meal that evokes the culinary roots of this Andaman city, the F.A.T Table dinner will at once rapture you with full-on Phuket charm.
