We managed to get a table and our some of their signature dishes. You can see how they cook the rice porridge and they work really fast and the customers turn over are fast too.
We ordered the pork rice, pork rice porridge and crispy pork (siew yoke).
The pork rice comes with pork meat, minced pork, pork liver, pork intestines with fried shallots and spring onion. The ingredients are similar with our Malaysian pork noodles ingredients. You get the different flavours and textures of different types of pork with the fragrant Thai rice. This is a must for pork lovers.
The pork rice porridge is similar with the pork rice but with the added pork broth for more flavour. If you ask me, I will prefer the pork rice porridge.
The crispy pork (siew yoke) is the deep fried version instead of the grilled version you get in Malaysia. The result is you get crispier crackling skin with tougher meat but some people prefer this than the grilled crispy pork. This complements well with the sauce.
To discover the local food in Phuket, you need to rent a car. There are many hidden gems in Phuket City and parking here is free most of the time. The traffic in Phuket City is busy but is not as crazy as Bangkok.
