Must try Thai cuisine in Koh Phangan – Overshadowed delicacies with a side of sea breeze

If one dares to look beyond the famous Full Moon Party and less-known Half Moon Party at Koh Phangan, a tranquil island of tan sands and shady canopies awaits. Scattered amidst the shade of the ocean-hugging palms are Koh Phangan restaurants, the allure of which are unfortunately overshadowed by the loud and lively nightlife twice a month. If you prefer a more opulent setting, there are plenty of options such as Anantara Rasananda Koh Phangan Villas; that produce mouthwatering dishes by incorporating a twist of luxury while maintaining the unique and exotic flavors.

 

Thai love of food is quite contagious. When coupled with the smiling hospitality and the unique experience of beachside dining, the rich succulent flavors of this land titillates all the senses. The cool ocean breezes will sate the spice and sourness of Tom Yum Goong, a soup considered a national treasure, while breathing a salty breath of freshness to the diner.

 

The simple, yet zesty dish of grilled pork cutlets called Yam Khor Moo Yang will make you dig your toes into the golden sand. Northern Thailand staple, Laap – a toss of minced meat and herbs served over sticky rice or lettuce – will provide a true cultural experience, confusing the palate with its assault of lime, mint, coriander and red onion. Kuay Teow, rice noodles that have been absorbed in the zest of a dark, rich herbal broth will invite the guest to lose themselves in the unexpected assault of tastes.

 

Koh Phangan is a diverse cultural hub that is often eclipsed by the Full Moon glory. But do dare to venture where the average party-goer does not tread. A gastronomical adventure under the twinkling stars awaits the Foodie that braves the solitude of the peaceful days at Koh Phangan.
