Surin in Ramsgate closes, a few old photos a bit of sketching over supper at the Pav
After a busy day at work I went off for supper at The Royal Victoria Pavilion aka Wetherspoons here in Ramsgate. hardly any photos as it was raining here is the link to them I really must get a water resistant camera.
The sign on Surin was enough to make me get the camera out
""Named after her hometown in Thailand, Surin is chef/proprietor Damrong Garbutt’s pride & joy. Her convivial restaurant close to Ramsgate harbour has proved to be hugely popular, thanks to its cheap & cheerful, but skilfully crafted, Thai food. Vegetarians are well catered for, as are students - who are the beneficiaries of a staggeringly low-priced menu. All the usual suspects are here (fish cakes, dumplings, soups), but the cooking has a certain freshness & verve. Cambodian & Laoitian influences liven up the familiar Thai repertoire, hence red & green curries & stir-fries keep company with the likes of whole sea bass steamed with garlic, chilli & lime juice. Locally brewed Surin beer (blonde or dark) has been created specifically for the restaurant & it’s the ideal thirst-quencher for these full-flavoured dishes.""
