The look here—all white leather paired with dark woods and chrome—is familiar to anyone who's been inside a W hotel, but it's an anomaly in Thailand, where loud neon colors are the rule. Oriental Spoon is part of the Twin Palms Resort on the west coast's Surin Beach. Despite touches like a martini bar, the food is surprisingly authentic, serving complicated and deeply spiced "country" dishes: grilled duck with red curry and coconut milk, fried blue river prawns with tamarind sauce. The presentations are traditional, too: Squeamish types who don't like to work for their food should avoid the whole shrimp, whole crabs, and whole lobsters. If you're ready to temporarily abandon the relentless tropical heat, ask to sit in the temperature-controlled wine vault, which doubles as a private dining room.
