The way to find this place is to look for this little vegetable stall on the side of the road. They got all kinds of nice vegetables in here for sale but what you’re going to want to do is pull in here there’s a little bit of parking and immediately as you walk towards the restaurant you can see the landscape super nice and lush a lot of good little details. This is a really rustic Thai-style roadside restaurant, they serve all kinds of great Thai dishes the name of the place is Romyang. I pulled up a table and got one of my favorites, the chicken cashew nut so that meal was 160 Thai baht and all I had was just to the one dish the chicken cashew nut and some water so it’s not the cheapest place but it’s also not so expensive 160 Thai baht about five bucks for that so anyway if you’re in Phuket look for this little roadside vegetable stand if you’re up in this area and then go on in and check out this restaurant cool little rustic Thai spot. Now it’s time for a teenee tip that dish that I ordered in Thai is called “Gai Ped Med-Mamuang” forgive my pronunciation but to break it down gai means chicken, ped means stir-fried and mamuang is a short form for cashew nuts so chicken stir-fried with cashew nuts.


Additional Information

Thai food is perhaps some of the tastiest cuisine anywhere in the world. It’s delectable combination of sweet, sour, and spicy makes each bite an absolute treat. Here on Phuket, just like everywhere else in Thailand, the best local restaurants are often lowkey, and inexpensive. Romyang, the restaurant featured in the video above is exactly this. You can get all sorts of delicious options that will make your taste buds pop. One dish worth recommending specifically would be Pad Krapow, which features a rice base with minced pork, chicken, or seafood on top mixed in with spicy Thai chilies and basil leaves. One thing to be careful of when ordering this is to not get too many chillies if you’re not a big fan of spicy food. Most Thai dishes are extremely spicy, so be sure to let the waiter know that you’d like less chillies mixed in with whatever meat you decide to get on top of the rice. Either that, or make sure to get one of the many tasty, iced Thai style drinks to cool you down after taking a few bites. Either way, you’re in for a treat when you visit this restaurant here in Phuket Thailand. After you’ve enjoyed lunch at Romyang, explore the area, take in the wonderful nature, and perhaps head to one of the many local beaches to sip on an ice cold drink while watching the waves of the Andaman Sea crash  gently into shore.
