บ้านบะหมี่


บ้านบะหมี่ was a local noodle story that I first visited with my wonderful wife and it was very good.
But there was absolutely nothing written in any other language other than Thai!



So if you go here be prepared to point at the pictures in the menu - if you do have anything in particular it may be of advantage if you take an App with you - the Thai Talking Food Menu App.


So be prepared not to be too sure what you are ordering and simply point  BUT it was certainly worth it. The noodles were spicy and definitely authentic.


The additions were wonderfully exemplary - as many times they are. I am not sure about the likelihood of the noodles having MSG in them however, I think that it is small but I keep reading about it!




The deep fried pork was (again) a wonderful addition to the noodles - they really are a must. I usually eat one whilst I am waiting or choosing my noodles and another one in the noodles.



Again add the extras carefully (from the left) salt, dried chilli, chilli in vinegar and soy sauce.



Then if you need a little more the very spicy chilli pieces.



I did use my Google Translate App...

Then we finished with a Thai desert which was brought from a local person walking past...

Fried ice cream rolls - (but now under construction @ Central)


Fried ice cream rolls are something that you could try whilst you are in Phuket - we we were in Central Festival - downstairs in the Food Court. So what was it made of? Well whole milk, Oreos and chocolate - that was it.



Chocolate first.



Then the Oreo and the milk poured together onto a frozen plate...



Crushed together and then flattened whilst it came together....



Then roll off the finished ice-cream.



Well I really should have videoed it - next time it's a 'Facebook Live'. BUT today it's off YouTube. Here's a YouTube to do this at home.

Haru - Japanese sushi bar


Haru - Japanese sushi bar is a place that we visit quite regularly. This picture was from a visit close to the time of Chinese New Year. It is a very popular place for the local people and it is at local prices.



There is a wonderful choice of Sushi that you can have but we always have the one with cream cheese



and the one with avocado - wonderful.


  
Then the sno-peas



and the mixed Sushi selection.



Then the Saba fish



and the gyoza - I could continue but writing this has made me hungry.



You can even get a Western desert - this is a wonderful place to visit.

Green Tamarind Kitchen



Green Tamarind Kitchen is somewhere we visited because I was playing with the Tripadvisor App to find out where the nearest restaurant was. Then we found out that this was the Number one restaurant in the on TripAdvisor in the area.


The little restaurant was by the side of the road and we almost missed it. So what could we have?


Well there was a selection to choose from BUT we all chose a Burger and they were fabulous! The only thing that we had difficulty was that they were too big.


And of course the ice cold beer.


Then came the 'real vinegar' for my chips - thank you.


We look forward to going again. Click on Panoramio below OR follow the map for it's location (that's what we did).

Chick a Boom


Chick a Boom is an interesting restaurant. It is a small caravan / truck underneath a tin roof. 



The menu is very small - two types of deep fried chicken and chips, so there is not a lot of choice BUT if this is what you are looking for.



Then we sat down and then handed plastic gloves for dinner. We were not getting a knife and fork!


Well much as I enjoyed it the experience was not something we repeated BUT it was great for a snack!!!

Cha Kang Raw Noodles - ก๋วยเตี๋ยวต้มยำ ชากังราว


Cha Kang Raw Noodles is certainly a place that is popular with the local islanders and the children at school on their breaks.


It is simply set up (much like a traditional Thai Noodle operation) and runs smoothly. I have now seen these bowls everywhere - they seem to be very popular.


You are handed a menu as soon as you sit down  - the menu is almost too simple! 
1) Choose you noodles 2) Choose your flavour


They were out of coffee though - you can buy some Thai coffees from the street sellers adjacent to the front - but no cappuccino?



So we both of us have Traditional Thai noodles but mine did not have the bones in...


Of course I had an iced tea whilst we waited.


I was not aware that they were serving Korean Ice Cream though - maybe next time?
