Our Top 5 Must-Try Foods in Phuket

Are you enjoying your time in Phuket? If you are, that’s good to hear. Though Phuket offers world-class beaches, what is truly amazing about this place is the food available for you. With hundreds of food items, anyone can be easily overwhelmed in deciding what to eat. Here are the top five picks to help you choose what to eat on your next meal in Phuket:

Tom Yum Goong
This Thai dish is perhaps the Thai people’s most favorite dish. The recipe consists of meats boiled in a sweet and sour broth. There are many versions of this dish that replaces the prawn with chicken (Tom Yum Kai), pork bones (Tom Yum Kadook Moo), or seafood (Tom Yum Taley).

However, what makes Tom Yum so amazing is its use of coconut milk, red chilies, and mushrooms and spices. If you’ve had some and it isn’t spicy, you’re doing it wrong. This fantastic sweet, spicy, and sour dish is perfect with some rice or noodles.

Mee Hokkien Noodle
This stir-fried noodle dish filled with prawns, pork, eggs, and bean sprouts is tough to turn down by anyone. It is very typical if you find yourself craving this dish over and over again. The combination of the meats with sambal chili and lime juice is perfect.

Massaman Curry
If you hate spicy foods, Thai cuisine may not suit you. However, you’re in luck because Massaman Curry is not spicy at all! This dish is perfect for anyone who hates spicy or even those who plainly love curry.

With its mixture of sweet coconut milk and lime juice, topped with lime leaves and basil embodied with peanuts and tomatoes, the flavor is hard to beat. You can have this dish with different meats in it, from pork to beef, to fish, and even chicken. Just like with all curries, it is best eaten with rice or noodles.

Dim Sum
Think Thailand doesn’t have good Chinese food? Think again. You will be shocked at just how many varieties of Chinese food there are in Phuket. As with Dim Sums, there are many different types. Look for Dim Sums that are folded multiple times and looks fluffy. Fillings range from shrimp to green beans and are full of flavor, usually eaten by itself.

Gaeng Keaw Wan Gai
Another curry, this green chicken curry is an attraction to not only Thais but to the globe. Food lovers from around the world praise this dish for its unique flavors. This curry can be made with either chicken or eggplant, or even both. It is hard to resist such a fantastic meal. You can tell how tasty this dish is by the faces people make when they taste this dish.

So, hanging around in Phuket but haven’t tried any of these dishes? Set a reminder on your phone to order these items the next time you sit down for a meal. Bring your family or friends to make the entire food experience much better for you. Remember, eating alone may be fun for some, but it is genuinely much more enjoyable experiencing great food with your loved ones.
