Top 8 street food in Phuket you ought not to miss in 2023 – for the ultimate foodgasm !

Indulging your culinary cravings in Phuket becomes irresistible, as this captivating island takes centre stage with its tantalizing array of diverse cuisines. From delectable Italian delicacies to mouthwatering Mediterranean dishes, Phuket truly steals the show, offering a culinary adventure that will satisfy every appetite.


Fried Rice

Called ‘Khao Pad’ by the locals, fried rice is one of the island’s sought-after servings which incorporates a choice of either, chicken, pork, beef or any kind of seafood as its main talking point. Accompanied by three slices of fresh cucumber and Pik Nam Pla which is a special and flavourful fish sauce, Khao Pad can be further complemented by including your favourite veggies to enhance texture and taste.


Fried Noodles

Staying on the subject of fried food, next in line that would warrant more than the odd sampling is Fried Noodles which will only cost you between 75 – 100 Baht per plate. While you can opt for seafood or any other variant of meat, what makes this form of fried noodles different is the fact that no eggs are used in its preparation which results in the noodles tasting crispier and more succulent.


Grilled Pork

Have a taste of heaven on earth from a humble street food stall in Phuket that will see to it that you come for seconds. Moo Ping or ‘Grilled Pork,’ this delicacy is oily but will have your tastebuds in a spin owing to the numerous sauces that are served with it. Also, Moo Ping is enjoyed best with a helping of tomatoes, cucumber and onions for a price hovering in the range of 10-20 Baht per stick.  


Noodles Soup

Dubbed the most popular food in all of Thailand, Kuey Toew which is a noodles soup is an absolute must, regardless of whether you’re on the lookout for a quick bite or a full meal. Considered a treat which is both tasty and healthy, Kuey Toew can be customised to match your fancies with beef, chicken, pork, shrimp or egg acting as its chief ingredient. While the size of the noodle tends to vary, the price you end up pocketing out will be anything in the range of 50-100 Baht and can be easily had at the Sunday Walking Street Market that is found near Travelodge Phuket Town which is a decent family hotel in Phuket to be at.


Dumplings and Dim Sum

With reference to taste, the dumplings found in Phuket wouldn’t be within a country mile of what you will be served in China. However, this shouldn’t be a reason to stay away from polishing off a few during your time on the island. The wheat-covered pork or chicken balls are steamed to perfection but differ in terms of how they are folded before being sent out. If you’re wondering what the best way to consume dim sum in Phuket is, then look for a spicy sauce or two that will surely burst out in celebration no sooner it enters your palate.


Sausages and Meatballs

The dual combination of sausages and meatballs can be paired with a bowl of soup or as a grilled sensation on a stick. An ideal snack for those on the go and wanting to cover as much of Phuket as possible, these fried or grilled offerings are sure to have you licking your lips as you include your favourite sauces and spices.


Thai Pancake

Cooked in sweetened butter, sugar and wheat, the Thai Pancake (Roti) will have you hooked after just one bite. Cap it all off with a filling or topping consisting of syrup, Nutella, jam or banana as part of a delicacy that can be had for breakfast or after dinner that will have the sweet tooth in you leaping for joy.


Ice Cream Sandwich

The Ice Cream Sandwich is one such snack that has not left the streets of Phuket for over a decade and that too for good reason. Flavours in the range of jack fruit, sweet corn, coconut, peanuts or banana come across as outstanding inclusions in a hot dog bun that features amongst the island’s most tried frozen desserts.
