บะหมี่แป๊ะเถว - Pae Teaw Noodle House

Looking for a place to eat noodles which are prepared for the local people? Then look no further than here for that original taste! This is great if you are looking for something authentic.

They make the noodles adjacent to the restaurant and they were not making any the day that we went - but possibly another time.

The noodles and your dish was made for you whilst you waited. Wow - this was certainly fresh and I could not get enough.

Whilst we waited we had the nibbles on the table and some Iced Tea...

We have been again.

Guey Teo Tom Yan

Guey Teo Tom Yan is a small noodle shop which sprung up swiftly and was certainly a place where we went  to get our lunch - but the next week was not there BUT a month later it was closed, but last week it was there again.

I was told that the Chef usually cooks in Bangkok but like to come to Phuket - which would explain why it is not always open. I hope that it stays there this time!

This is certainly a local Thai restaurant - there was no menu at all and there were some dishes prepared for you to choose from.

Another indicator that it is for the local people is that they do not waste their time taking the prawns apart - in fact this does mean that there is more flavor (but not for everyone).

And that's what these bowls are - full of flavor!

You must also try the iced coffee though - it was delicious...

I did wonder about the choice of paintings on the wall though...

Of course there was some shaved ice to have after the noodles...

Rush coffee (Chillva Market)

Rush coffee is a relatively new coffee shop - it opened approximately when the Chillva Market opened.

So I visited it when I was there in the morning and I was surprised that it was open - there seemed to be a business meeting in their in the morning - the table was empty when I left.

But the market was closed so the view was not that good...

JailBreak Burger And Coffee

This was something I happened to find purely because I was at the Phuket Immigration Office to renew a visa and I arrived at the wrong time and I had to wait another hour!

Note: I have not done this again and always arrive about 8am and never on a Friday.

So it is next to the road and next to a number of motor bikes waiting to give you a ride somewhere - they left me alone because I told them I was waiting for my visa.

I had a wonderful cappuccino as I waited and watched the world pass me by - a great spot to wait if you need to go to the Immigration Office for your paperwork.

Note 2: Interesting read on Tripadvisor about the delivery of the burger in jail?

ราชรส ตมซำ

ราชรส ตมซำ seems to be our most commonly used Dim Sum restaurant in Phuket that we seem to visit - it is always wonderful and always busy - which makes this a good sign! So how does a Dim Sum restaurant work? Well this is something that was not immediately clear. But in the fridges at the front there are a plethora of different dishes, take a tray and place each dish on it. The cost of each dish is linked to the type of small dish that it is on...

But what each dish is?

Well I have absolutely no idea...

I cannot tell you how beautiful these freshly rolled Dim Sums which are made at the front are but they really must be had.

I love the selection of Dim Sum 

and of course the hot tea that is served with it. You really must visit a Dim Sum restaurant in Phuket when you visit - fabulous.

Pancake Corner and the Coffee Club (The Limelight)

Pancake Corner and the Coffee Club is a franchise in Thailand for deserts (primarily Pancake dishes) and coffee.

We usually go in here for a coffee (and then get a cake) - it is adjacent to the food hall on the ground floor.

The coffee shop is simple and quite artfully decorated.

The coffee is great and it is worth visiting here after some food in the food hall.

If you really need that cup of blended tea they have that as well.
