Phuket and the Andaman Coast Restaurants



Kopitiam by Wilai

Kopitiam by Wilai Review

The walls of this unique restaurant-café in the heart of the architecturally quaint Sino-Portuguese district are lined with vintage black-and-white images of Phuket, which pretty much reflect the kind of food served up here—old school Thai/Chinese fare. Signiture dishes are inspired by secret recipes of owner Wiwan's mother (who owns the also popular Wilai restaurant nearby) and grandmother, and often include Chinese medicinal ingredients from her uncle's herbal shop next door. Try bak kut teh, a pungent shiitake mushroom and pork soup, and mee sua pad, noodles with seafood and spices, as well as the crispy noodle and egg salad. Ice teas like Butterfly Pea Flower and lime are especially good for cooling your insides on a hot day, while a variety of smoothies and good coffee made in a cloth bag are also worth a try. For a delicious snack, buy some of the creamy homemade pepper cookies or crunchy caramel peanuts to take with you.
