Restaurants in Phuket - รานสมตำเมองคอน สะพานหน



รานสมตำเมองคอน สะพานหน is a restaurant that we choose to go to in Sapan Hin. At the current time Sapan Hin is a place which is predominantly used by the local Thai people and I cannot list how many times we have visited for I don't know how many different 
reasons.


The best reason for visiting รานสมตำเมองคอน สะพานหน is their Yam Pla Dook Fu (Thai catfish Salad) - the best in Phuket.


The restaurant itself serves you in the Traditional Thai way of sitting around a low table but there is also the opportunity to sit on a chair - we choose the traditional way.



As mentioned we always have the Catfish Salad so I could not tell you what else we have but it is all extremely cheap. It does taste good with a Singha...

Don't forget to visit the Chinese Shrine near by - Kiew Tian Keng

 


We have visited previously:

 1) March 2013 
 2) March 2014
 3) July 2014  

Approximate Price: $$$$$
Address: Sapan Hin (see the map)

 

Wat Chalong Temple Fair Pt. 2 (2016)


A Temple Fair is a another reason to visit a Wat - but it is very different and we returned again - but were not to do the same thing again. So today we;


Purchased some Star Wars toys...


Wondered why there was a gun game in a Buddhist Temple...


So many wristwatches.


Got duped by these games - they offer you a dart to throw against the balloon - which you take and then they want the money for the dart you just threw...


Then it was time to knock down the tin cans.


Time to feed the goats - with a baby milk bottle.


We did wonder where the people were for this game...


Wondered whether they had permission to use all these characters on the Bouncy Castle?


Wonder whether the is company knew about their shoes?


Then something to eat? A crab?


Not sure about having a tattoo here even if it was not permanent?

See you again Wat Chalong 

Previous Temple visits
 1) Wat Chalong Temple Fair 2016 (1)  

Wat Chalong Temple Fair (2016)



The temple fair is always something that I like to visit - mostly for the ambience which is lovely.





We of course visited Wat Chalong to make an offering...


Then it was time to look for some clothes - there was too much choice!


Some Asian spatchcock chicken?


Or some strawberries?



The Cashew nuts in a toffee sauce were delicious (I went back for more).


This I was not so sure of...


But lots of these pancakes...


and of course some jewellery...


So red shoes are the 'in thing' at the moment?


Some sugar palm juices?


Not sure where some of this jewellery is from...


Do you fancy a bite?




Always worth a visit to a Temple Fair.
(We might go again tonight)

Where is?




Where is? 

Is a question that I would imagine that many tourists have when they visit a new country. Phuket might not be where I need this but recently I was in Bangkok and I needed something - it was a coffee. 

In Phuket I generally know where the coffee is so it is not necessary - unless you have heard of a new coffee shop of course! Check out my review of Blah Blah here 
(when I've been).



Then it was time for a Starbucks using Starbucks Near Me App.



The actual Starbucks App didn't help because it was early in the morning and I wanted to know whether it was open.



But them the next morning I wanted a Chemist - Foursquare / Swarm helped me!

Thank you.
