Try real Phuket food at Lock Tien Food Court

Lock Tien food court in Phuket Town is a place every person living in Phuket long enough knows. It doesn’t look like much but with 50 years old history, it’s probably the oldest food court on the island. What really matters is that Lock Tien serves some real Phuket specialities.

The location at the intersection of Dibuk and Yaowarat roads makes it a perfect stop for a light lunch. The staff is friendly and the prices are too. It’s cheap, very fast and they have plenty of seats to you won’t feel cramped.

You can even take a short break at any time of the day as part of your Phuket discovery. Try their Hokkien fried noodle, good satay and the very popular Po Pia Sot (fresh spring rolls).

We love to stop over for their Oh Aew. Oh Aew is a Phuket speciality, a great way to cool down with what locals love: simply shaved ice with red sweet syrup, red beans and Oh Aew seeds jelly, which is a Chinese herb. It might sound a little strange to westerners but it actually makes a lot of sense in a hot country where having ice cream can be too heavy.
