Kanohm Jin Phuket
Noodles often compared to spaghetti usually served with a spicy curry sauce, the most common made from fish. It is usually eaten as a breakfast food and is, if you can stand its fresh character, delicious. It comes with an array of fresh vegetables and boiled eggs that are mixed with the dish by dinners at their table. It is often found with the fried pastry called Pah Tong Go and the curried fish mousse called Hor Mohk, both of which are very tasty. Some of the curries are not spicy, so try a shop that has many curries to choose from if you are sensitive to spicy cuisine. There are many shops to choose from everywhere in Phuket but the most famous are in Phuket Town :
– Kwan Kanohm Jin on Tungka Rd.
– Pah Mai on statun Rd.
– Pha Ri on Pahtiphaht Rd.
Oh Aew : Oh Aew An iced sweet made of flour, banana, and a little seaweed. Look for it at on Soi Soon Utit, Yaowarat Rd. and on Ranong Rd., at the entrance to Soi Loro
Tao Sor : Kanohm Bia Phuket Spring rolls, Chinese crepes. The best known are found at Kaeng Tin near Ruam Paet Hospital on Phuket Rd.
Por Pia Fresh spring rolls served with a sweet brown sauce, stuffed with red pork or shrimps, crispy pork, bit of lettuce and turnip.
Mee Hokkien Big yellow noodles in brown gravy with red pork, squids and veggies.
Bee Hoon Kra Dook Moo : Dry vermicelli served with fried shallots and spring onion, served with a clear soup and pork ribs. Excellent.

Kiean : A deep fried Phuket sausage made from pork and taro, served with a sweet sauce.
Lo Ba Deep fried Pork giblets: intestines, ears and fat belly also served with sweet brown sauce. Great with beer, but not great for your diet.
Homok Talay : A delicious spicy curry fish mousse steamed in a Bai Cha-ploo leave (Piper sarmentosum Roxd if you ask!), itself wrapped in a banana leave. A must try, but be aware, it might come spicy and occasionally with a strong fishy taste!
