Phuket - food that makes you addicted!

If you love food, Phuket’s cuisine is one of the top reasons to travel to Thailand! The local dishes will tempt you to try them only by their appearance and the way they are served. While the controversial taste-wise dishes will make you Phuket-addicted since it’s quite common for a dish to combine and balance the tastes of sour, savoury and sweet as well.

The mountainous island of Phuket is well known for is fresh juicy seafood, while there are also restaurants to satisfy every taste. You can start your day with an International breakfast at your hotel, grab a bite at a street food or hawker stall, enjoy a Thai lunch at a local noodle restaurant, and have a delectable dinner with fine wines in a hotel’s gourmet restaurant.

The most popular must-try dish in Phuket is Pad Thai. It is a national dish of the Thai cuisine, but you should taste it in Phuket to understand its real value of taste. It usually consists of noodles dressed with tofu, bean sprouts, onions & peanuts. Other delicious foods in Phuket are; Oh Tao, a combination of oysters and crispy pork, Hokkien Mee, round yellow noodles accompanied with either seafood or pork, and A-pong, the famous sweet rolled pancake.
