Phuket Town


Pungent delicious from Phuket

Bangkok's hip Thognlo strip is not short of foreign cuisine and chic Thai fusion restaurants, but it doesn't have a good hand of merit Thai restaurants that food Thai grandmas will not hesitate to put in the mouth.

All time favorites are
old guns such as Thon Krueng (corner Thonglo Soi 13) and Ruea Thong (corner Thonglo Soi 17), while newer players like Khua kling + Pak Sod (Thonglo Soi 5) and Khao Chao (Thonglor Soi 17), are eateries that serve authentic (Thai) and old-school dishes. Last year the Phuket Town adds spices to this high-so(ciety) community (Thonglo) with its debut to the gourmet scene.

Phuket Town, with her name, hints that the cuisine is emphasized on the Southern (especially Phuket) specialties with most of the ingredients sourced from Phuket; dishes like
nam-prik pla ching-chang, stir-fried pak miang, stir-fried sa-tor bean with shrimp in Southern spicy curry paste, and Southern style yellow curry with ocean sea bass fillet with young coconut tip, pineapple and banana stalk, are cooked with true Southern accents. Interesting?

If you eat too much fried chicken fillet in pandan leaves wrapper, steamed sea bass in lime and spicy broth, and green curry, then it is about time to evolve your palate to another level in the Thai cuisine - at Phuket Town.
