Big Chicken Restaurant (Tung Tong Restaurant) restaurant might not be worth traveling a long way to just to eat at, but it’s one of our three favourites venues in Kathu. This is also your chance to try some real Thai dishes: how often can you eat giant Ants Eggs? If you drove past the Phuket Country Club in the past twenty years, chances are you saw that weird giant chicken on the side of the road. It’s a simple, nice and clean restaurant with a very friendly service and guess what, they even have an air con room! But the reason it is always full is without a doubt the food.
Don’t be shy if you go there: you can always stay in the ‘safe zone’ and order some good old Thai classics, but what’s the fun of it? Take a chance and go for the specialties. Note that for most you’ll have to be spicy-proof.
Here are some hardcore favourites, all prices are around 40 to 100 baht, and to go with that, what could be better than a beer with ice, the way we like it in Thailand!
Now, if all this starts panicking you, their real specialty is a delicious barbecued chicken (Kai Yang) and barbecued pork (Moo Yang)… but what kind of memory will you take home with that?
