Full description
Are you ready to explore why Phuket is often considered one of Thailand's top foodie hotspots? Greet your guide in the cool of the morning at 10:00am outside the city's famous central market and begin your walking tour weaving your way through the streets passing a glorious Chinese temple en route to try a Phuketian classic snack of spiced rice cooked in banana leaves. Back down at the market, your guide will take you to a hidden little teashop which serves the local Burmese working community. Here, you'll try Burmese curries, crispy samosas and other delights accompanied by naans freshly cooked in their wood-fired oven and washed down with sweet tea. Just down the road is a fine outdoor fresh fruit and vegetable market where your guide will explain the ingredients that go into Thai cuisine and sample exotic fruits, juices, and other tasty morsels like deep-fried coconut balls and prawns cooked in banana leaves. Continue on your culinary adventure by working your way over a bowl of rich Hokkien noodles with a pair of chopsticks (don't worry, cutlery's available too) from a little restaurant that's been serving up the good stuff for decades. Don't worry, it's not over yet. Your guide will take you to a local indoor market famed for its fresh spring rolls filled with cured pork and topped with sweet sauce and pickles and coconut pork skewers served with rich peanut satay and zingy ajat cucumber relish. It's unthinkable not to visit Phuket Old Town without delving into the sweets. Your guide will take you for a particularly special Phuket-style crepe cooked over fiery coals, a refreshing and vivid iced dessert and finishing on sweet milky tea and flaky rotis at a joint that's been knocking them out for years. Return back to the central market where the tour ends. You'll return back to your hotel with a deeper understanding of Phuketian cuisine. Be warned, the food on the rest of your vacation will now solely disappoint.

The guide was so knowledgeable and took us to locations that I would never have visited myself. It was a chance to try many different foods from different cultures, both savoury and sweet. There was a mix of visits to little eating houses, cafes and markets. We also visited and learned about some of the historical buildings in the Old Phuket area. Highly recommended if you are a foodie - come with an empty stomach!

A definite must do if In Phuket. The best food tour to know everything there is to know about THAI food art and culture and all the other different ethnicities that call Thailand home from The Mynamar, mixed and original Thais , Chinese and Muslim to name a few. Guide is very informative on all aspects other than food from knowledge of the local trees, buildings and their histories to name a few.

We had a tour booked for 4 hours and were met promptly by the delightful guide. She had a vast knowledge of the locality and the history of the origin of the food. We were taken to eating establishments which we would not have found by ourselves and were given the most tasteful food imaginable. The group consisted of an Australian family of 3 small children who were given food to their taste and a single German girl who was brave enough to try the food with the strongest spice possible and ourselves. The tour lasted for five hours (how time flies when you’re eating and enjoying yourselves!) and it could have lasted longer had our taxi not arrived to take us back to the hotel! Pena, thank you for making this a pleasurable tour
