Are you ready to explore why Phuket is often considered one of Thailand's top foodie hotspots? Greet your guide in the cool of the morning at 10:00am outside the city's famous central market and begin your walking tour weaving your way through the streets passing a glorious Chinese temple en route to try a Phuketian classic snack of spiced rice cooked in banana leaves. Back down at the market, your guide will take you to a hidden little teashop which serves the local Burmese working community. Here, you'll try Burmese curries, crispy samosas and other delights accompanied by naans freshly cooked in their wood-fired oven and washed down with sweet tea. Just down the road is a fine outdoor fresh fruit and vegetable market where your guide will explain the ingredients that go into Thai cuisine and sample exotic fruits, juices, and other tasty morsels like deep-fried coconut balls and prawns cooked in banana leaves. Continue on your culinary adventure by working your way over a bowl of rich Hokkien noodles with a pair of chopsticks (don't worry, cutlery's available too) from a little restaurant that's been serving up the good stuff for decades. Don't worry, it's not over yet. Your guide will take you to a local indoor market famed for its fresh spring rolls filled with cured pork and topped with sweet sauce and pickles and coconut pork skewers served with rich peanut satay and zingy ajat cucumber relish. It's unthinkable not to visit Phuket Old Town without delving into the sweets. Your guide will take you for a particularly special Phuket-style crepe cooked over fiery coals, a refreshing and vivid iced dessert and finishing on sweet milky tea and flaky rotis at a joint that's been knocking them out for years. Return back to the central market where the tour ends. You'll return back to your hotel with a deeper understanding of Phuketian cuisine. Be warned, the food on the rest of your vacation will now solely disappoint.

A definite must do if In Phuket which is a mix of visits to little eating houses, cafes and markets. We also visited and learned about some of the historical buildings in the Old Phuket Town. The best food tour to know everything about Thai market, food art and culture, as well as the influences from different ethnies (Myanmar, Chinese and Muslim among others). Pema is the most delightful, caring, phenomenally interesting and fun guide who has a vast knowledge of the locality and the history of the origin of the food. She took us to local restaurants which we would not have found by ourselves and we had the most tasteful food imaginable. It was a feast at every stop and the food is all delicious! Pema, thank you so much for making this a pleasurable tour. Very highly recommended with a lovely guide.

Did the shopping and preparation from scratch. Was informing and entertaining. We made several dishes and the instruction was comprehensive and quick enough. Of course the eating of our complete dishes showed the quality of the food and the competence we acquired.

Highly recommend if you want to see more of Phuket and actually learn about the history of it. Guide was great, super friendly, spoke very good English. Must do if in Phuket!

Amazing experience, you can discover a huge amount of Local food. Come with an empty stomach and let the best guide show you around and share her pation.

A great experience, great hosts. Still making the food items that we learned. Well worth the money.
