Phuket - Cuisine
Thai food usually doesn’t require a detailed presentation, most of us know what it’s about. It’s spicy and full of taste, crunchy, smooth and absolutely fabulous. You probably have an excellent idea about what Thai food tastes like even if you’ve never set foot in Thailand. The secret seems to lie in how you combine simple ingredients. The cooking of Thai food is usually quick, but how it’s done seems to be close to an art form.
There are a few dishes, and cooking methods that are unique for Phuket:
- Fried or boiled noodles served with chicken or pork
- Khanom Jin - a kind of noodle based breakfast dish including hot curry and fresh veggies
There is an abundance of both cashews and pineapples on Phuket so these ingredients are very common.
