When I first arrived, I thought it was famous for beaches and tourism. During my trip to Phuket, I met a Korean-American. His joy in travelling is food, so this guy has a lot of knowledge and experience with Thai food and restaurants. This person recommended me a restaurant in Phuket old town. We went together. The noodles at the restaurant he introduced are really delicious and cheap. Through this person, I learned again that one of the charms of travelling to Phuket is the cheap and delicious food. as like Malaysia Penang.

100-year-old and 60-year-old stores in Phuket

The first restaurant we went was a famous local restaurant. 100 years old, this one is called SomChit. We ordered three bowls of noodles. The Korean who recommended this restaurant to me said that one of the greatest joys of traveling is food. He tried the mixed noodles first, and then immediately ordered noodles with soup. He ate two noodles and was very satisfied. I had a shrimp noodle soup, which was delicious. I took a closer look inside the restaurant. And I was surprised to learn that this restaurant is over 100 years old. This restaurant opened in 1892 and has been passed down for four generations. The shop next door is Mee Tom Poe, which also has many customers. The restaurant next door opened in 1949 and is a famous restaurant. This is the main restaurant and there are two branches. This place has been in business for three generations.

Cheap, nice restaurants

Phuket old town “SomChit” is famous for its noodles. If you look at the characteristics of local old restaurants, the menu is very simple. This seems to be a characteristic of old restaurants in China, Japan, Europe and most places. This way administrative costs are reduced to provide dishes cheaply and the chefs can focus on what they do best. This time we had 2 shrimp soup noodles and 1 dry noodles. The price of noodles here is divided into 55 baht, 70 baht or 80 baht depending on the quantity. I recommend ordering the 55 baht side for women and 70 baht for men. Customers can choose noodle type from five types of noodles.

Phuket Old Town is the most many travellers visit.  Most travellers eat at the restaurants on that street. My recommended Phuket gourmet restaurants are about 10 to 15-minute walk from the bustling street. The clock tower can be seen on the map below. Both restaurants are located near the clock tower. Travellers can easily find it using Google Maps. I share the Google map address below. r6

Phuket old town history

It is Thailand’s largest island, and its economy has developed through international trade since the 16th century. Especially after the 19th century, European powers invaded Asia, and workers from China and India migrated here one after another. Specifically as many Chinese labourers were from Malaysia Penang, to develop tin mines, the area gained greater charm with its beautiful natural scenery, beaches, and diverse culture, food, and religion. It’s impressive to see people of all shapes and colours living together in harmony and speaking the same language. With tin prices falling sharply, rubber and palm trees are now the main sources of income. You can see a lot of jungle destroyed by palm and rubber trees. Animals cannot live in rubber and palm forests. This is also where economic development has taken place.
