Wow there is so many choices of cuisine to choose from and if you love food, then you will love Phuket. There are restaurants, 5 star restaurants, eateries, side stalls and even your humble cart cook to get a scrumptious feed to suit every pellet serving a huge selection of Western, International and Asian cuisine.
But for me l go to Thailand for Thai food and l have been a little daring with my snacks this trip trying some of the cuisine of a humble Thai lady serving freshly cooked chicken skewers of her cart near my resort (delicious) and the price 20 baht each. But my Favourite would have to be a banana pancake made fresh in front of you with honey on top a lovely light snack for the afternoon price 40 baht as you can see you can snack on a budget if you desire.
While Thai food is renowned world-wide for its wonderful flavours and fresh ingredients, Phuket is especially famous for its seafood, and you don’t have to empty your bank account to enjoy the most scrumptious of dishes. My favourite Seafood place to go is like a seafood market in a way but it’s a row of 10 seafood restaurants side by side with all fresh or live ingredients including, crayfish, mud crab and the biggest tiger prawns. So just frolic between them and see which one can give you the best deal or service, l don’t think you will be disappointed. And if they don’t have your favourite drink just BYO or go across the road into seven eleven and buy it, they won’t charge you corkage like back at home.
Some tips l have picked up along the way when choosing food, l do have a sensitive stomach so l always go with these tips personally, if eating of the carts make Shaw it is cooked and cooked in front of you, l personally keep away from salads because they are washed in water and when served lce make shaw it has the little holes in it that means the ice is made with drinking water and always drink water out of a freshly opened bottle of drinking water very cheap around 7 baht in Seven Eleven. And another biggy clean your teeth and rinse your mouth in bottled drinking water.
