Phuket's Yummy Eats - Part One

Tom Yum Soup in Phuket
This tom yum was really spicy and refreshing!

As promised, here are some tantalising photos of what I ate in Phuket. I was only there for 3 days and stayed at this quaint little inn which was just 10 minutes away from Patong Beach. Food was great, and so was the weather. I came back with a really nice tan! haha. anyway here's part one of Phuket's Yummy Eats... enjoy!

Pad Thai
Pad Thai - I loved how these noodles were really chewy

Delicious Pineapple Rice
Thai Pineapple rice! The best I've eaten yet...

Authentic thai green curry
Had to eat their green curry of course!

Sticky Rice with Mango
ahhhh for dessert, sticky rice with very ripe and sweet mangoes

Duck noodle soup
Got this from a street stall - noodle soup with duck. delicious

Papaya salad in Phuket
haha, this is papaya salad, remember my previous post?

pancake or prata

I have a funny story for this. I saw this street stall selling 'pancakes' and I thought that it would be some lovely thai version and ordered one - banana nutella to be exact.

Banana Nutella Pancake

and guess what it turned out to be? haha yea you can see. it's actually prata! with banana and ya nutella. gosh the guy slopped on lots of oil, butter and even wanted to put condensed milk and sugar! this was so sinful! but it tasted kinda good I gotta admit.

fish and chips in phuket
fish and chips. yea weird to be eating western there ya? but haha was craving for it

cottage pie

So there, you got a gist of what I consumed when I was in Phuket. I have many more photos, mostly of street stalls and what not. Will post them soon. Meanwhile, hope I've whet your appetite!

stargazer: I stayed at Thai Oriental Inn. It's pretty reasonable. Check out their site at

let me know if you want pictures of the place. I took some while i was there. it's kinda cosy and rustic. not too bad.
