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 a 50 years old history, it’s probably the oldest food court on the island. What really matters is that it Lock Tien serves some real Phuket specialties.
The location at the intersection of Dibuk and Yaowarat roads make it a perfect stop for a light lunch. Staff is friendly and 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 anytime if 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 specialty, a great way to cool down with what local 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.
