“The food here is absurdly good. I’ve eaten some of the most delicious pad-thais, curries, naan style pizzas and tasty salads of my life at Nomads. Karim and Ariane surprise their guests every night with innovative culinary creations and incredible fresh food… the sashimi is the best it gets.” – Levi (volunteer)
The Nomads Land restaurant provides ethical and organic food with local and international cuisine such as European, Indian and Moroccan. We bring spices to every meal providing a twist to dishes such as fried fish or tartare de legumes. As a longtime world travelers, our mental cookbook is infinite. Soups (pumpkin, gazpacho, tom yum) are palate perfect, the squid amazingly spicy, while daily fresh baked bread and naan make you forget you’re eating on a deserted island in Southeast Asia. And not to mention the homemade sweet fruit jams and sun-dried tomatoes.
EVENING HOME-STYLE DINNERS
The kitchen gets busy as the sun begins to set and the normal kitchen hours close. While Afro-funk and French fusion pour from the speakers, the staff work together to create an enormous spread of fine food from around the world. The evening buffet is much more than the simple name implies. You might find King fish sashimi, a Spanish todos omelette, a creamy carrot and ginger soup, garlic BBQ’d squid (caught by the neighboring fisherman), a tangerine tajine and fried rice… on the same table in one night.
FRESH FISH OF THE DAY (Sashimi, Sushi & More)
When visibility is good, the fishing is even better. On any given day, Karim and Kevin will cruise up from the kayak, speargun in hand, with a 5-kilo barracuda on their back ready to be served as BBQ’d fillets. If you’re lucky, they’ll come back with a few trevallies destined for a sushi plate, and on most occasions, will definitely have a good-sized spotted sweet lips and a handful of rabbit fish to fry up. From fish tacos to fish n’ chips, the fresh fish of the day is local and amazing. Keenyai, the neighbor, fishes for squid each night around the island – promising some of the best squid in Southeast Asia.
