And though there are many Thai restaurants that pop up back here, but there is nothing comparable to those authentic Thai food cooked & prepared in Thailand! (getting hungry lol).
So, in this trip to Phuket, Thailand, we took as much opportunity to savour the local Thai dishes. Although we didn't really search around, but whenever it was time to eat, we only went for Thai restaurants. But in the cases, there weren't any, we went to those that were of a fusion or at least have a lil bit of Thai food menu, just like the first restaurant in the shopping centre.
It was a Japanese-Thai restaurant serving fusion food.
That was one of the best ramen I've ever eaten!
Another restaurant we tried was at one of the lanes at Patong beach. They serve local Thai dishes, or so we think. I guess it's more like a fusion, but still delicious.
Must Try In Thailand
And of course, throughout the trip, we tried the famous Thai food wherever we went - weather it was eating at the hotel or the restaurants, for lunch or dinner.
We really thought that the morning glory was something else. lol.
Must Try In Phuket
Apparently, Phuket is known for its seafood. The pic above was at this rather dim & in a way unassuming restaurant. We happened to eat there by chance, and it turned out to be a perfect bliss! The best restaurant we had in Phuket serving traditional Thai food!
The food is simply local - spicy, sweet, sour all mixed. And in fact, there were many locals eating there, which is good meaning it is local taste!
And here's other food we had at this Thai restaurant:
Smells Good Too
The fish was fresh and in fact, we had 2 fishes, the other BBQ! Ok, that sounds greedy, but the reason we ordered this BBQ fish was because of the aroma we could smell as we sat at the table.
We asked the waitress, and she mentioned it was because of this:
I've actually tried this before in Bangkok as well, and it was simply delicious. Truly recommended!
Other Unique Food
And in Thailand, I would recommend to always try their fruit drinks which are reasonable priced - and are usually cleanly prepared (in case you are worried).
More Than Food & Drinks
And one last one that we had which made us rather full... something we ate by the roadside - the Thai local fruits.
The Thai food really gels in with the holiday, where apart from able to see & do many things in Phuket, we get to have good delicious meals to look forward to. And now back, there is just this craving for Thai food - and though eating at the Thai restaurants here will not be the same, but at least it goes close back to 'paradise' :)
*We were always in a rush for our dinners, no matter how tasty & delicious the food were... but for a good reason. That's coming up next!
