Must-Try Street Food Dishes in Phuket, Thailand

Must-Try Street Food Dishes Phuket

Foodies will definitely love the streets of Phuket. In every corner, food carts and street stalls always have something to tease your taste buds, from fresh tropical fruits to mouthwatering grilled chicken.

Here are three of our favorite street food dishes in Phuket.

Pad Thai

According to Wikipedia, Pad Thai in 2011 was ranked number 5 by readers to make it on CNN Go’s list of “World’s 50 most delicious foods. Try it, you’ll know why.

Pad Thai is a dish made of noodles stir-fried with eggs, bean sprouts, squid (or chicken or shrimp), and other ingredients. Watch the video below to see how it’s done street-style.

Grilled Chicken or Gai Yang

Gai yang is juicy, tender, and savory. You may have your own grilled chicken recipe at home, but try this dish and you’ll be impressed.

According to Wikipedia, preparation involves marinating the chicken with fish sauce, garlic, turmeric, coriander, and white pepper. Grilling is over low heat on a charcoal flame for a long time.


Thai-style crepes are called khanom bueang. They’re distinct because they’re crispy and served like tacos. What we had wasn’t khanom bueang, but they’re still crepes and they’re delicious!
