I don’t think there’s one place you could go in Koh Samui and not enjoy the food, seriously, it’s that good. We ate everywhere, our resort, street vendors, local restaurants… all delicious! Now I don’t know if it’s because you’re on a beautiful island in the sun and everyone’s smiling & happy, or if it’s because everything is so unbelievably fresh! (I had to emphasize the fresh) But my advice when you visit Koh Samui, try a bit of everything, you won’t be disappointed! 🙂
Chicken Satay with peanut sauce @ the Melati Beach Resort & Spa. The chicken was marinated in yellow curry, it added a perfect balance of heat to the sweetness of the peanut sauce. I could straight up eat that sauce on its own, it was that good.
You can never go wrong with Pad Thai. Thick egg noodles with egg, peanuts, tofu, chili peppers and prawns the size of a baby’s hand (that was the best comparison I could think of!) I licked this plate clean.
We went over to Chaweng Beach & saw a small line up by this woman, we couldn’t see what she was cooking but it smelled delicious. Turns out, it was simply corn on the cob! Grilled over some charcoal and sprinkled with salt and rubbed with a little butter, so simple, so cheap & so tasty.Albert clearly enjoyed it 🙂
No matter where I am in the world, at some point, I get a pizza craving (especially after a few mojitos on the beach). This thin crust with prosciutto and mushrooms satisfied that craving.
Fresh mango (which tastes like pure sugar by the way), coconut, jackfruit…the street is lined with vendors offering refreshing fruit and fresh squeezed juices!
Another thing the streets of Samui are lined with, BBQ Restaurants. There are rows of fresh fish, prawns, lobster & more sitting on ice just waiting to be freshly grilled. It’s impossible not to be drawn in by the smell. We checked out Top Ten BBQ Samui and left with full bellies and the need for a nap!
You hungry yet? 😉
