5 Delicious Dishes to Try in Phuket

Friday, August 20, 2021

 Food is one of the things tourists love most about Thailand, and on the tropical island of Phuket, the cuisine reflects the exotic character and vibrant colors of this place. Some of the most popular foods in Phuket are famous all around the world, but there’s no better place to savor them, than on this beautiful island. Let’s check out the five must-try dishes of Phuket:

Tom Yum Goong

The most famous of all Thai soups, Tom Yum Goong can be found on the menu of pretty much all hotels in Phuket, as well as in every Thai restaurant around the world. Combining all four of Thailand’s famous flavors, sweet, sour, salty, and spicy, Tom Yum Goong is often referred to as the national aroma of Thailand. Shrimps provide the substance of this clear soup, lemongrass, lime leaves, shallots, and galangal give it a unique aroma, and chilies and fish sauce will make you jump off your seat.

Massaman Curry

One of the signature dishes of southern Thailand, Massaman Curry is definitely one of the most delicious Muslim dishes in Phuket. Combining the sweetness of coconut milk, the slightly sour taste of tamarind, and the unique flavor of cinnamon, Massaman Curry has a unique taste that will drive your taste buds insane. Beef and chicken were originally used as meat, but after Buddhists embraced it, pork became the most popular choice.

Por Pia

Spring Rolls are a popular dish all across Southeast Asia, but Fried Spring Rolls, known as Por Pia, in Phuket, is especially popular among foreign tourists because they are not spicy. The thing people love most about Thai Por Pia is the special dipping sauce, made with apricots.

Gaeng Keaw Wan Gai

Ok, so that green color doesn’t exactly say “grab a spoon and have a taste” but Gaeng Keaw Wan Gai is an exciting dish that came in second place in a survey concerning Thai foods preferred by foreigners, conducted by the Thai Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Combining the extreme spiciness of green chilies, with the blandness and creaminess of coconut milk, Gaeng Keaw Wan Gai is best served with steamed rice or as a sauce for noodle dishes.

Gai Med Ma Muang

Phuket is home to some of the world’s best Cashew nuts, and locals take all the credit for finding a way of mixing them with chicken and creating the delicious Gai Med Ma Moung. Slightly sweet and crunchy, this Phuket dish has some chilies (wouldn’t really be Thai food otherwise), but it’s considered a great way to experience Thailand’s cuisine, for people who aren’t used to hot foods.
