Food Review: Fish Ball Noodle-Phuket Thailand

During my recent trip to Phuket, Thailand, i chanced upon this one restaurant serving delicious fishball noodle. Though i cant figure out the name of this eatery nor did i ask the owner, i believe it is Anwa Restaurant based on the placard placed on the counter. All other signages are in Thai, so forgive me for this little info that i can share of the restaurant. Nevertheless, it's not hard to find this restaurant as it's located around the vicinity of Nurul Islamiyyah Mosque-Patong. If you are coming from Phuket Town or airport, the mosque will be on your left while the restaurant itself will be on the right side of the road. Once you have passed the mosque, drive slow until you see a T junction with traffic light and the restaurant will be on your right immediately after the junction.The best part of it this restaurant open till late at night as we were there almost midnight and people were still coming in to eat even after we left.

The general view of the restaurant. Very spacious with many seating and most importantly very clean neat and tidy.

the menu

as you can see they served not only selections of noodles but also western food and snacks

I ordered the fishball noodle soup.You can choose the type of noodle that you want being yellow, rice noodle or kweytiaw. Price THB 60

The taste of fresh ingredients were prominent, as always in Thai dishes they only use fresh ingredients. The broth tasted of seafood based ingredients and has salty-sour taste to it, which complemented well with the fishballs and fish cakes. The noodle was topped with chopped peanuts and spring onions giving more texture to it. This was eaten with pickled chilli or other condiments provided in small bottles on your table. It tasted heavenly especially during cold rainy night, as it was when we were there.

We also ordered some minced chicken nuggets. Price THB 70. This was served piping hot. A little bit greasy but the dipping sauce accompanying it was aptly made from some tangy/sour orange or lemon juice with chillies, which cut through the oiliness

This restaurant also has wifi connection thus you can connect to internet while having your meal here. Dont forget to give this place a try if ever you are in Phuket. cheers-Kay2014
