Thai Street Food at MALIN PLAZA in Phuket

Hello Everyone and Welcome to my Video! I’ve been very excited to share this video with everyone and I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it. If you like it, please do support me by subscribing to my channel so I can bring you more videos like this! :)

Malin Plaza Patong offers the fair prices and impressive range of souvenirs of some of Phuket’s bustling and busy markets, but in a cooler environment and with a great range of cheap food available around it. Although not generally as busy as the likes of Phuket Town’s weekend market, this nightly shopping option is nonetheless popular and highly thought of. The wares available at Malin Plaza Patong are mostly similar to those of any other market in Phuket and include t-shirts, denim, beachwear, bags, luggage, spa products, mobile phone accessories and a good range of trinkets and souvenirs. Some of the shirt designs are a little rarer, the souvenirs are a little better quality and very few of the local markets have a tailor’s shop, making this a good place to visit if you want something a little bit different. You can get some cheap Thai street food.

At night markets in Phuket you’ll find a huge selection of things to buy, from clothes and antiques to even entertainment like music and Thai massage. But for food lovers, the best thing about visiting any Thai night market is the food.

The food was spectacular, it was spicy, delicious and insane amount of selections.

Street food in Thailand brings together various offerings of ready-to-eat meals, snacks, fruits and drinks sold by hawkers or vendors at food stalls or food carts on the street side in Thailand. Sampling Thai street food is a popular activity for visitors, as it offers a taste of Thai cooking traditions.[1] Bangkok is often mentioned as one of the best place for street food.[2][3][4] In 2012, VirtualTourist named Bangkok as the number one spot for street food—the city is notable for both its variety of offerings and the abundance of street hawkers. The dishes sold at wet markets in Thailand tend to be offered pre-cooked. Many people go there, and also to street vendors, to buy food to eat at work, or to take back home. It is a common sight to see Thais carrying whole communal meals consisting of several dishes, cooked rice, sweets, and fruit, all neatly packaged in plastic bags and foam food containers, to be shared with colleagues at work or at home. Due to the fact that many dishes are similar to those that people would cook at home, it is a good place to find regional, and seasonal, foods.

Food markets in Thailand, large open air halls with permanent stalls, tend to operate as a collection of street stalls, each vendor with their own array of tables and providing (limited) service, although some resemble the regular food courts at shopping malls and large supermarkets, with service counters and the communal use of tables. Food courts and food markets offer many of the same foods as street stalls, both pre-cooked as well as made to order. Night food markets, in the form of a collection of street stalls and mobile vendors, spring up in parking lots, along busy streets, and at temple fairs and local festivals in the evenings, when the temperatures are more agreeable and people have finished work. Noodles are a popular street food item as they are mainly eaten as a single dish. Noodle dishes include pad Thai; rat na, flat noodles with beef, pork, or chicken and vegetables, topped with a light gravy; and rad naa's twin, phat si-io, the same flat noodles dry-fried (no gravy) with a dark soy sauce, vegetables, meat, and chili. Chinese-style noodle soups, fried noodles, and fermented Thai rice noodles (khanom chin), served with a choice of different Thai curries, are popular.

Nearly everywhere in Thailand som tam (green papaya salad) and sticky rice are sold at stalls and roadside shops. This is popularly eaten together with grilled chicken; but if the shop doesn't sell any themselves, someone else nearby will. Other dishes include tom yum kung (a sour shrimp soup), khao phat (fried rice), various kinds of satay, and various curries. Japanese chikuwa and German sausages have also appeared in Bangkok.
