Great Thai Dishes To Try In Phuket – Drool Worthy Dishes!

Thailand is best known for its variety of flavour packed, mouth watering dishes. Thai cuisines are generally available anywhere in the world, but head to Thailand to taste authentic Thai food.


Pad Thai

Pad Thai is world renowned – and most countries will obviously do their best to create their version of Pad Thai, however, nothing comes close to it than the REAL Pad Thai from Thailand. Whether you're in Bangkok or Phuket, restaurants and street vendors will definitely have Pad Thai on their menus, so there really is no excuse to not have authentic Pad Thai when you're in the country. The best part is that this dish can be found anywhere – ensuring that locals and tourists have ample opportunity and options to get their serving of Pad Thai. Pad Thai is basically stir fried noodles, added with chicken or seafood and a whole assortment of vegetables from red chilli pepper to raw banana flowers! In 2011, Pad Thai was featured as No.5 on the World's 50 most delicious foods according to the CNN Go' readers' poll.


Tom Yum Goong

Non seafood lovers will need to skip this and move on to the next dish listed here. However, if soup and seafood is your forte, then the Tom Yum Goong is bound to be your favourite when you're 'touristing' in Thailand! Tom Yum Goong is a clear soup infused with the rich and delectable flavours of lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves and chilli; making this hot and sour soup one of the most desired and sought after dishes in the country amongst locals and tourists alike.


Tom Kha Gai

Hey non seafood lovers, now that you skipped the 2nd item on the list (without too much disdain, one can hope) here is a reward to equal the Tom Yum Goong! Tom Kha Gai is made with chicken, mushrooms, the sweet flavours of lemongrass and tomato; all cooked in a thick coconut cream.


Khao Neeo Mamuang

A clever alternative and a saving grace for your taste buds- that are most likely a bit burnt from all the local chilli dishes, the Khao Neeo Mamuang or more widely known as Sweet Sticky Rice with Mango is a sweet dessert! The rice is steamed and then sweetened with sugar and cooked with coconut milk. Freshly cut cubes of mango are accompanied with the rice to create the perfect end to your meal. Many restaurants such as Nahmyaa Thai Restaurant at COMO Point Yamu, Phuket are known to serve up this dish!


Geng Kheaw Wan Gai

A favourite amongst 90% of the world population (slightly over exaggerated), the Geng Kheaw Wan Gai means Green curry chicken. A thick, creamy and delicious concoction of chicken – or any other type of meat you'd like, coconut milk, local eggplant and various other ingredients, and of course the famous red chilli will make you crave for more after each serving! The green curry is usually served a bowl of steamed rice and best eaten hot!


Spring rolls

Who doesn't love spring rolls, right?! Popular in many Asian countries, spring rolls are light, crispy rolls filled with a mix of vegetables and / or meat and served at any street vendor. Spring rolls are best when eaten with sweet and sour sauce.
