ONE of the great things about Hamilton Island is you are spoilt for choice when dining out during your stay. With a range of great bars and restaurants to choose from, there's something for every taste.

Here are three of the most popular meals on the island (and a little treat for after dinner):

1. Betel leaves with lobster peanuts roasted coconut and flat leaf coriander - from coca chu

About coca chu: The food is a delicate blend of Thai, Vietnamese and South East Asian influences. Designed to be shared, each dish offers contrasting flavours of hot, sweet, sour and salty resulting in a balance of textures, flavours and aromas.
