Restaurants & Coffee Shops in Phuket
Phuket is a foodies’ paradise and was recognized in December 2015 as a City of Gastronomy by the UNESCO, one of the 26 cities dubbed so around the world. With a strong influence from China, mainland Thailand and the southern Muslim flavors, the food you will find in Phuket is considered diverse and a perfect balance of sweetness, sourness and the well-known Thai spiciness.
