A Great Dim Sum Breakfast in Phuket
Ketho Dim Sum is a restaurant very popular with locals, mostly for their dim sums but also for their soups and rice porridge. The place is very casual and cheap: a basket of Dim Sum costs only 50 baht, so you can imagine how busy the place is from early morning at 6 am until noon, every single day.
What to order
You already know that Dim Sums are small steamed dishes served in restaurants for breakfast and for lunch, but you may not be familiar with the concept of those small restaurants around Phuket. Here you select from the fridge the dim sums you like and carry your tray to the steaming station and tell them your table number. They will then steam them for you and bring them to your table when ready. It’s a fun and easy-going breakfast!
The choice of Dim Sum seems quite large as you see on the photos, but they often rotate around shrimp and pork stuffing, in different proportions. Kids will certainly love the very realistic Angry Birds Dim Sums! Ketho also serves Khao Tom, a rice porridge also very popular for breakfast.
