In the end of July the three partners Daniel Isberg, Peter Hjert and Pontus Hagen launched the new restaurant concept Texas Steak House with their first outlet in Surin, Phuket by inviting a large crowd of guests.
Both Pontus (with previous comprehensive restaurant experience) and Peter (owner of Surin Gate Hotel etc.) have over ten years experience of running businesses on Phuket, while Daniel Isberg landed on the island in 2011 to set up Surin Gate Kitchen.
The Swedes have now joined forces to build this concept, which offers Tex Mex (with Californian influences), steaks, burgers etc.
Think Fajitas, Quesadillas, BBQ Pork Ribs, Nachos, Fish and Shrimp Tacos to have a good idea of what is on the menu.
The idea is to test this for one season and if successful, as they hope, the intention is to open more outlets (on Phuket and elsewhere), disclosed chef Daniel who quickly built a reputation on the island with his Surin Gate Kitchen. They are conceptualizing this as a brand with own products etc.
American and Mexican flags, framed pictures of Indian chiefs, Western movies on the TV, Frozen Margaritas are all defining ingredients. More décor also to arrive from Texas!
The owners want this to become a happening waterhole for both island expand expats and visitors.
“The surroundings are excellent and this is precisely what Surin needs,” said Daniel Isberg.
99-baht margaritas are served, and a daily happy hour every day between 5 to 7 pm offers affordable drinks and food.
