Are you ready to explore why Phuket is often considered one of Thailand's best foodie hotspots? Greet your guide in front of the city's famous central market at 10:00 in the morning and start your walk by meandering through the streets, past a magnificent Chinese temple to taste a pictorial classic snack of spiced rice cooked in banana leaves.
Back at the market your guide takes you to a hidden little teahouse serving the local Burmese work group. Here you will taste Burmese curries, crispy samosas and other delicacies, accompanied by naans cooked fresh in a wood-fired oven and washed with sweet tea. Just down the road is a fine outdoor market for fresh fruit and vegetables, where your guide explains the ingredients used in Thai cuisine and you can taste exotic fruits, juices and other delicious treats such as fried coconut balls and prawns cooked in banana leaves.
Continue your culinary adventure by working over a bowl of rich hokkien noodles with a pair of chopsticks (don't worry, cutlery is also available) from a small restaurant that has been serving the best dishes for decades. Don't worry, it's not over yet. Your guide will take you to a local indoor market known for its fresh spring rolls filled with salted pork and served with sweet sauce. You will also find pickled cucumbers and coconut pork skewers served with rich peanut satay and a delicate ajat cucumber flavour.
It is unthinkable not to visit the old town of Phuket without looking at the sweets. Your guide will take you to a very special Phuket Crepeart, cooked over fiery coals, a refreshing and lively ice dessert and refined with sweet milk tea and flaky rotis. In a place she's been preparing for years.
Return to the central market where the tour ends. You will return to your hotel with a deeper understanding of the Phuktish cuisine. Be warned, the food for the rest of your holiday will only disappoint you now.
