I did my homework and research into our possible dining options during our visit to Hamilton Island and there is certainly no lack of good food there. Especially fresh seafood. So I was eager to try Coca Chu, a new addition to Hamilton Island's food scene. Set on the shores of Catseye Beach, this restaurant provides you with amazing views of the ocean and an even more amazing dining experience as it transports you to South East Asia.

The design of the restaurant is beautiful. It felt like a chic yet relaxing beach shack. Service was extremely informative and friendly, why wouldn't you be in a good mood when your office is set on such a breathtaking location?

The prices at this restaurant are reasonable compared to a number of other restaurants on this island and the servings are generous. We shared a plate of crispy five spice quail ($18) for entree, followed by salt & pepper cuttlefish w' lemon & chilli dipping sauce ($36) and salt & pepper soft shell crab w' green papaya salad & green nahm jim ($34). Obviously, the night wouldn't be perfect without a sweet end and so we ordered their sticky rice w' vanilla bean & mango ($12) for dessert and the taste was so authentic, just like the one I had in Phuket after a tsunami scare, but only this time, the dessert was creamier and sweeter (and eaten in a far more relaxed atmosphere).

Total Bunnie Dollars Spent: $130 (or thereabouts).
