Food Mama Thai Restaurant, Thailand

Posted by: Wen Ching In: Thai Food|Travel

Despite growing up in South East Asia, it wasn’t until recently that I made my very first trip to Thailand, and that was to visit the well-known Phuket Island.

Phu NaNa Boutique Hotel, Rawai, Phuket
I made my booking through TripAdvisor, as usual, and I booked Phu Nana Boutique Hotel for a 2 night stay in Phuket. The hotel was located in Rawai, and the journey from the airport took around an hour. The hotel was located in a quiet neighbourhood, it was a family-run business, very small but it has everything that we needed, clean and very pleasant.

We were very impressed with our rooms as well, clean and comfortable. The proprietors were very nice and friendly, helpful and always smiling.

Nai Harn Beach, Rawai, Phuket
After getting directions from the locals, we rented a scooter and went sight seeing around the southern part of the island. We drove to Nai Harn Beach, which took us around 10 to 15 minutes. The beach was packed with tourists, many were sunbathing on the beach, a very popular place among the Caucasians.

The view was beautiful, blue horizons and peaceful sea view with silky soft sand beneath us. It was a great place to unwind and relax.

As we strolled along the beach, we came across a stream flowing towards the sea, there were children playing in the area.

As the evening drew closer, more people packed and left the beach.

We stayed in Nai Harn and watched the sunset.

Since there were a couple of restaurants located in that area, we decided to have our dinner there.

The view was serene and tranquil.

Interior, Food Mama Thai Restaurant
When it was dinnertime, we chose Food Mama, a restaurant located on the beach. The restaurant were covered by a number of big umbrellas and dimly lit, creating a peaceful and calm ambiance.

Please pardon for my carelessness of forgetting to note down the name and price of the drink. The drink was good and I liked the presentation, with an orchid as a decoration.

Som Tam, Food Mama Thai Restaurant
We were served with Som Tam first. The Spicy Green Papaya Salad consisted of green papaya, beans, chilli, tomatoes and peanuts. I liked the spicy and sourness of the dish, which increased my appetite for the main courses.

Steamed Fish with Soy Sauce, Food Mama Thai Restaurant
For our mains, we had a Steamed Fish with Soy Sauce. The portion was huge and the fish was fresh. However, we thought that the fish can be made more flavourful, it was slightly bland to our liking.

Tom Yum Soup, Food Mama Thai Restaurant
Dinner in Thailand will not be completed without a bowl of Tom Yum Soup. The spicy soup was nicely fragrant with strong sense of coconut milk and lemongrass. We enjoyed the soup a lot, very delicious when eaten with rice.

Fruit Platter, Food Mama Thai Restaurant
We ended our dinner with a plate of complimentary fruit platter consisting of watermelon, pineapple and banana.

Service was very good. The waiter was extremely friendly, although his command of language was limited, he did his best to assist us with our needs. Food was good and the environment was peaceful and relaxing. Please stay tuned for more travel and adventures in Phuket in the next post!
