Corner Restaurant at Old Phuket Town

We always love to eat like the locals when visiting a new place. And since we knew we weren't going to get good cheap food at Patong beach area, we decided to drive out to old Phuket town for some authentic Thai food. Boy, was the trip worth it! We had a tough time finding good restaurants there since there're not many published information on the web on cheap eats at Phuket town. So we practically drove around the town in circle, until we decided to ask someone at the Travel agency. The manager there was kind enough to recommend a Thai restaurant just around the corner and we were soooo glad we asked her! We had the best fried rice, kuay Teow Noodle soup and tom yam noodles EVER! The Thai Ice Tea was absolutely delicious too! :) Best meal in Phuket so far! Gan: Agreed! Best meal we had in Phuket.

I can still taste the fried's that good.

Kuay Teow was amazing too

Gan decided to order the Tom Yam noodles which I didn't try since I am allergic to spicy food. lol... but he said it was really spicy but good! Gan: Springy instant noodle-like dish with pork offals in spicy tom yam soup... can't beat that.

Big C Supermarket

We decided to check out Phuket's Big C supermarket since we've read about the foodcourt. Once there, we detoured and checked out the supermarket instead. Very interesting :)

All kinds of Thai Chili Paste.......i would go absolutely NUTS if they have this in New York

All kinds of Fish Cakes...Good for steamboat/hot pot

Banyan Cafe, Banyan Tree Resort

There are a couple of days when we got rained in at Banyan Tree, so decided to eat in the resort's cafe. We ordered Pad Thai and seafood noodles. Both are decent, but pricey.
