Pad Thai @ Random Street Stall, Karon Beach Phuket

A bunch of us were craving for some "real" Pad Thai for lunch and asked our Tour Guide to take us to his favorite Pad Thai Stall and not some Tourist Restaurant like what we had for Breakfast this morning.

The drive took a while and eventually he stopped us at some random street stall. The looks made us excited as we knew this was probably the real deal. Not one tourist in sight and the menu was in Thai.

Open Kitchen

Every table had a bottle of "Tiger Pepper Powder" which was something I've never seen in Bangkok before. I guess Tiger Pepper Powder is a staple for the crowd.

The Pad Thai was pretty good. The Noodles was a little bit soft for my liking but the flavor was really good! It has a very strong sour flavor similar to Malaysian Mee Goreng which I much prefer compared with the sweeter version found in Bangkok.

This was one fiery dish. Despite asking for mild spicy the dish still packed a lot of heat. The flavor of the Basil was really imparted into the Pork making it a very aromatic dish.

The Omelet was not bad. I would have liked it to be crispy on the outside.

Overall we asked for an authentic Thai Street Meal and we got our fix at this stall. The food was very satisfying and the environment just makes it even more authentic!
