PHUKET PART A – FOOD

16 03 2009

Two things that really stood out for me in Phuket apart from the cliche’ type stuff like the sex industry, white people on scooters and massages was A – The seafood, and B – FANTASEA. I don’t really know where to start or how to tell my story, so I figured the easiest way was to comment on some pics. 

We were in Phuket for 4 days and just about every meal was seafood. For most seafood is a novelty you get for a special occasion, but over there it was standard fare…and bloody cheap to boot! My dad has been a regular visitor to Thailand for the last few years and with the help of his mate and driver BOON, we got taken to ‘locals only’ restaurants.

This was some roadside stall that had fresh just about anything which you picked and they prepared for you…

In Australia we get charged a fortune if you want Coke in a bottle. It has always been glass in Thailand. And it costs nothing.

And of course just steamed fresh crab with that killer chilli dipping sauce

Why would they even bother? I guess Ronald has his hands (or feet?) in every corner of the earth. Funny thing is that with so much good food for cheap in Phuket, the only thing people were buying from Maccas was the ice cream and sundeas.
