Talad Kaset Night Market in Phuket Town

Popular Thai Snacks and Street Food in Downtown Phuket

Talad Kaset Night Market is considered the largest night market in downtown Phuket. It’s the place where you can sample tasty street food influenced by 3 different cultures; Thai, Chinese and Muslim. You can easily find it right behind Robinson Department Store.

This market gets busy after 8pm but it’s ready to welcome customers from early evening and continues operating until late. Many night-shift workers stop by before heading to work and clubbers often come here for snacks before calling it a night.

Kao mok kai – Steamed yellow spicy rice with chicken

Sweets and beverages

After all that food, it’s good to wash everything down with exotic drinks like soybean milk, sweet ginger tea, Asiatic pennywort drink and butterfly pea drink (it’s a lovely colour, too). All can be enjoyed hot or cold.

Kanom sod or Thai traditional sweets are not only colourful but they also come in a wide variety. They are made using local ingredients such as coconuts, bananas, rice, pumpkins, sugarcane, taro, sweet corn, sweet potatoes, lotus seeds and more. There are a few vendors selling kanom sod at this food market. Take your time to look around and don’t forget to whip out your camera!
