เยาว์เย็นตาโฟ 2


I have to admit that I do not know how many times we visit this roadside noodle shop.

It is certainly extremely tasty and fresh.


We always have these deep fried prawns (whole) whilst we wait - okay they do have all the head tail and shell on still but they are tasty.


Then comes the noodles - Chuen always asks them to only put some chilli on - so this is not a lot - you should see how much the locals eat. It is not strictly necessary to add this much.


But look at how much went on her dish of noodles!


Anyway - it certainly was delicious - there is very little way of instruction here - there was only a wall menu and the stand at the front.

Approximate Price: $$$$$

Sac's Boulangerie Patisserie


Sacs is a place that we have visited a number of times for breakfast and it does have the best strawberry jam in Phuket.



The location is certainly not for everyone - on the side of the road and next to a local vet. BUT there is ample room to park at the front?



The breakfast was again super - there has never been many people here when we have gone and I think that this helps the fact that there is so little wait. They even changed the set up for my daughter to have French Fries and more bacon for breakfast... It is a traditionally Western menu but I have to say I keep forgetting to read it thoroughly because we always only ask for the breakfast menu - next time...



The fruit juice always comes first, then the coffee and the plate for breakfast...
Then there was the ice cream for breakfast!

What can I add?



It now has a small 'fruit bar' at the front of it but we have never partaken of this - maybe another time? They also sell bread and there is a menu but we have only ever gone for breakfast - another time?

Approximate Price: $$$$$

ราชรส ตมซำ



This is certainly a popular place of ours to go - each time we go I try to think of something else to have but we don't.


So it might not be exactly the right thing to do but we do have some wonderful choices.


The freshly made Pork buns (of which there are plenty) are always a god choice.

Then there is a great choice in all of the different Dim Sum - in fact I would choose everything once to find outwit I would like, well that's what I did.


I would go to the fridges surrounding the area and just choose a few. Take them to the staff


and they steam them for you.



I do have a 'soft spot' for these freshly rolled dim sim though...

Chicroom Cafe


Chicroom Cafe is certainly a place that I have visited more than once and it is in a great location if you are wandering around Phuket Town. I also understand that it is a hotel as well  and they serve breakfast - here's some more info.



Then I find there is another location - behind Limelight - looks pretty good, I will have to have a look next time... The location of this Cafe is what first attracted me and has since attracted me back - it is exquisite. 



Then there is the individuality of the setting - next to a long running Khlong through Phuket Town. Although siting outside and watching what is disposed of into the water is not always a good idea and then the smell is occasionally terrible. (SO I now stay inside).



However inside is a glory to something which has been gaining popularity in the cafe and restaurants in Phuket - collecting old materials and gathering them together. Not sure at all what this was but now it it a bar seat.



Where did all those televisions end up?



And the calculator?



This is the check-in counter for the hotel above (look carefully and you will see a head).



Then there is the coffee - very nice, strong



and served with a small biscuit.

See you again - thank you.

Cha Jada



I know very little about this chain of food sellers Cha Dada - apart from there are a number of them scattered throughout Phuket and their Cha Yen (Iced Tea) was glorious.



This was the lovely lady who made me my drink.



As I sat and watched the traffic drive by I felt that it was an ideal place for a pit stop.


Here are mixers for the drinks.



Looking at what is in front of me I would have to say I have no idea what these are.
Would you try one?



Look out for this sign

ซิน ซิน - Xin Xin


This was certainly a wonderful revelation to find. This was a Traditional Chinese restaurant which was clearly a family business and were happy welcomed by what was the mother of the family.


And family was exactly how we were treated. There are a great many of these small places scattered throughout Phuket and they are definitely worth visiting if you want a truly real experience of Phuket dining.


So how was the food? It was magnificent and we have since returned. The noodles were certainly freshly made and it was almost the best deep fried pork in Phuket, but that would be ซินซิน บะหมี่เบตง.


Then the simple fried rice was also freshly made - a clue to this was the quality of the condiments that came with it. 


Then I read on the posters how long that this small shop may have been in Phuket but has links to Facebook.



And they had WiFi...
