Phuket Thai menu generally includes dishes from different regions in Thailand. Thai regional cuisine can usually be divided into 4 regions: North, North East, South and Central. In order to experience those different types of cuisine, you can either head to major cities such as Bangkok, Chiang Mai or Phuket, or choose to embark on a gastronomic trip all around Thailand.
The Northern region is particularly famous for sausages such as the spicy sausage called “Sai Ua” (pork, chillies, shallots, and lemongrass). It’s also a noodles lovers paradise with many declinations of large flat rice noodles (“Kuay thiaw”) and thin rice noodles (“Khanom chin”) dishes. On another hand, the Northeast region is the birthplace of the infamous Thai papaya salad (“Som Tum”) part of the usual Phuket Thai menu. It is often eaten together with sticky rice and charcoal grilled chicken (“Gai yang”). Catfish is also mainly found in Isan region and you can try it in some dishes such as Mango salad and crispy catfish (“Yam Pla Duk Fu”). If you’re looking for the best quality jasmine rice, head to the central region which is also recognised for its curries (green curry, kaeng phet, kaeng phanaeng), tom yam soup and dishes from Chinese influence incorporating tofu and clay pot dishes. Down South, Phuket and the surrounding regions are famous for fresh seafood directly sourced from the Andaman sea. Nevertheless, Phuket Thai menu usually encompasses regional flavours from the whole country.
