Many Mango

Many Mango is a popular shop for me because it is air-conditioned and serves mango.

It is in the heart of Phuket Old Town and it is referred to as a desert shop and serves mango!

Not more I can really say more and I could not find any more information...

Glass house - ลาว|ญวน

Glass house  ลาว|ญวน is a:
"Chic, classy Thai-Vietnamese Restaurant in the glasshouse hidden under the old raintree. This charming cuisine famous of northeast Thai and Vietnamese food. Perfect place for social gathering with friendly service, sipping selection of great wines in beautiful surrounding."

Glass house is something that looked good - so we tried it. It just on the outskirts of Phuket Old Town (see the map below) and near to the large bookshop.

It certainly looked trendy when you looked at the young people who were there. We chose to be outside - there is an option to sit inside in air-conditioning which looked very nice.

The menu's were certainly nice to read and photographs seemed to be real photographs rather than a standard clip art menu - that annoys me! 

Surprisingly the food also looked like the images on the menus - we were on a good roll...

Well we ate it all up and were surprised how good it was.
Where is the best Vietnamese restaurant in Phuket?

Khanomla - Streetfood

On making a visit to the Wat Chalong Temple Fair I was immediately excited to find that my favourite Roti Sai Mai was for sale here and it was delicious.

I was also introduced to this new one - Khanomla.

This was certainly fascinating to watch. The Chef had a large bowl which seemed to be a mixture of egg yolk and sugar. Hanging above this is a perforated can where the mixture is pouring out. The mixture dropped onto a large very hot wok and made a most beautiful pattern which would then peel off and then rolled together! The best way to see what happened next is to watch the video below.

It was certainly a skill and it tasted great! It was only when I saw it here that I found out some information on the web.

ก๋วยเตี๊ยวดู๋ดี๋ is a local noodle shop which seems to be very popular every time that we visit. There is always a street seller outside selling some sort of dish - today there was something different.

Is this dried snake skin or preserved fish?

I was told that I would not like it so I listened to my wife and chose not to have it as a starter but looked for something else. The food was not to my taste today - not even a quail's egg...

It was straight to the som tam... delicious - but I am not quite sure about the small crab though, do you like to eat it? I am told that it is the best bit. It was good Som

So it was straight to the bowls of noodles - this was my wife's noodles - seafood and meat, now this I am never quite sure of, I still like to keep my foods separate...

This was my bowl and it was great! I always choose the yellow noodles but you are able to choose the noodles which you would like. There were no Lod Chong Nam Ka Ti this time though, so next time...

ร้านส้มตำ เสียงแคน (Siangkaen)

ร้านส้มตำ เสียงแคน is a traditional Thai restaurant and all the descriptions indicate that it is a Thai restaurant and salad place.

ร้านส้มตำ เสียงแคน is adjacent to the main road so it makes it great for parking but not the most peaceful place to sit - but the food!

The description would explain why there were so many variations of Som Tam that there are - so if Som Tam is what you are looking for then this is the place to go.

The Som Tam that we had was seriously hot and I was unable to eat it - however my wife thought that it was great and certainly traditional.

So we ordered another one.

Then there was a BBQ which i did not wish for - it may have been tasty but the menu was enough for me - sorry..

So if you are looking for Traditional Thai Food then this is a good place, but not for everyone.

จ่วนเฮี้ยง สาขา2

จ่วนเฮี้ยง สาขา2. was a place that we decided to visit because we wanted somewhere new to visit BUT we couldn't find it - it wasn't down that side road was it?

Well it was - there was some construction going on... Well there is something that I would add and don't be late because we could only choose what was left from everybody else.

What was given to us was very nice but I think it was more to do with me being annoyed that we were late - it was now 10am! 

Moral of the visit - DO NOT go too late because lots of your choice has already gone!

BUT we will go back...
