Opened just this year in February, Eureka has swiftly become a haven for families seeking a relaxed dining experience amidst the serene oasis of Hua Hin. Originally drawn to the city for its family-friendly atmosphere and tranquility, the owners envisioned a restaurant where both parents and children could find solace and enjoyment. With a dedicated play area for kids and a peaceful dining space downstairs for adults, Eureka effortlessly caters to the needs of all its guests.
Beyond being a mere restaurant, Eureka offers a range of activities for both parents and children. Parents can partake in dance and yoga classes, while the little ones engage in arts and crafts, dance, children’s yoga, gymnastics, and even hip-hop and ballet classes. In August, the restaurant plans to host a two-week educational camp with sports activities, including swimming in the idyllic waters of Hua Hin. Notably, parents will be delighted to know that there is no charge for their toddlers, ensuring a truly inclusive experience for the entire family.
The culinary journey at Eureka begins with a refreshing gazpacho soup served chilled, offering respite from Thailand’s hot climate. The soup, featuring diced tomatoes and cucumbers, delivers a burst of freshness and revitalizing flavors. This is a classic rendition of the Gazpacho soup, a dish that embodies the comforting flavors and heartwarming essence of traditional cuisine.
For those seeking a delectable and wholesome choice, the avocado toast is a must-try. The tanginess of the feta cheese beautifully complements the creamy avocado, creating a harmonious blend of textures and tastes.
In addition to the captivating ambiance and family-oriented activities, Eureka boasts a range of premium desserts and specialty coffees. Indulge in their high-quality offerings, accompanied by an impressive selection of loose-leaf and herbal teas.
The inspiration behind Eureka’s food concept stemmed from the chef’s personal quest for a delicious, fresh, and reasonably priced breakfast within walking distance. Frustrated by the lack of options, the decision was made to craft a breakfast menu that would satisfy their own cravings while delighting customers.
One standout dish is the house-made and orange juice-marinated salmon breakfast, perfectly paired with a touch of lime zest. Furthermore, the innovative use of local ingredients such as beetroot and feta cheese yields a delightful beetroot and feta cheese dip, while the inclusion of locally sourced avocado and fresh shrimp showcases the restaurant’s commitment to supporting local producers.
