Amazing Tastes of Thailand 2015 in Phuket

When we talk about Phuket, many people think about the beautiful beaches. Today, we are proud to present “a variety of food”. Yes, that is, Thai food!

The past 19th and 20th of September 2015, Khiri Travel’s Phuket branch office had the opportunity to join the Tourism Authority of Thailand’s street food event on Thalang Road and Sea Dragon Park entitled “Amazing Tastes of Thailand 2015.”

The main objective of this event is to allow travelers to experience a variety of dishes that locals enjoy across all parts of Thailand. Thai food is a truly international cuisine and is enjoyed by millions around the world. In addition to it’s delicious flavor, fresh ingredients are the key to authentic Thai food that attracts people to Thailand from around the world.

We really enjoyed the street food and I’d like to recommend two dishes in particular that were very popular at the event.

–  “Powerful Noodles” or Bamee Chom Palang from Bangkok’s Yaowarat Chinatown. All the fresh ingredients are combined in a large bowl with noodles, morning glory, crab meat, slices of roast red pork, pork dumplings, and a jumbo-sized pork ball served with crab soup. I’m sure your mouth is watering now!

Another well-known dish in Phuket is “Yellow Curry Crab with Noodles” from Phuket’s Raya Restaurant. If you can stand spicy food, this is the dish for you.

The event also hosted a cooking competition, a classic culinary battle between Iron Chef Thailand’s Khun Chumphon and Khun Ik, as well as cultural performances. If you have a chance to visit us in Thailand, please try our signature Thai dishes, we’re sure you’ll LOVE it!
