WHAT, WHERE AND HOW WE EAT IN KOH SAMUI

Sort by:

The content of this category: local fruits, vegetables, herbs, Thai dishes, condiments that you can buy on Koh Samui, well as the instructions on how to use them.

Also we are regularly adding here the descriptions of cafes, restaurants and bars in Samui, of those which we or our friends have recently visited: photographs, exact location, menu, level of service and average bill. In each description we specify the date when we have been there.

We welcome all your recommendations on what other places are worth visiting, what restaurant or bar to add to the category.

Yes, we understand that "nothing lasts forever" and especially the level of service of Thai restaurants and bars: over time, some of them close or move to another location... they might change staff or get too lazy or vice versa - start to work wonders of the art of cooking ...

In general it is really difficult to advise anything here.

But we shall try.

In order that we can all compare our impressions in each category you can add your own review.

More cafes, bars and restaurants of Koh Samui are presented in the following category: http://samuidays.com/category/bars-restaurants/

About eggs

 
About eggs

Once, in a conversation with a Thai girl I was surprised to learn that during a day Thais manage to eat an average of 6 meals including eggs in one form or another, as a readily available product. It turns out to be an average of 20 egs per week! And, of course, to make it tasty and not so boring they cook egs in all the different variations, boiled, fried, baked, raw, soar, steamed, pickled... >>

Bananas? Bananas!

 
Bananas? Bananas!

What do you see when you fly up to the Koh Samui island? Sparkling blue sea, lush tropical saturated green vegetation, and ... of course, the palm trees!In fact, if you just walk around Koh Samui you will realize that the island is a one big coconut plantation. Palm tree tops are seen everywhere, as well as a sure sign of the presence of tourists - a hammock that in 90% is stretched between the trunks of two palm trees. >>

I do not like to search for recipes in books and in Google, but what  I do like is watching the process of cooking in Thai restaurants and at food courts, and after that experimenting with what I saw at home.For the last year and a half this dish is our family favorite in Thai cuisine. >>

Durian

 
Durian

Durian (in Thai "turien") is considered to be the "king of fruits" of Southeast Asia.Its name apparently derives from the Malay word "duri", which means "thorn." Indeed, the fruit is covered with a tough skin with very sharp thorns covering the entire surface (in some cases, you wont be able to pick it up without gloves).The birthplace of this exotic fruit is believed to be the island of Borneo and Sumatra (in other words - Malaysia and Indonesia). Some time later durian appeared in other countries in the region: Thailand, India, Sri Lanka, the Philippines, Vietnam, New Guinea. >>

Pineapples

 
Pineapples

In my distant childhood pineapples were sold only in packages, peeled and cut into small pieces. They were sold in stores "vegetables and fruits", which always smelled of rotten potatoes, sour cabbage and was always dirty. Pineapples were then brought from Australia (or New Zealand) and sold exclusively frozen. In times of the big holidays parents used to bring home a coveted bag with a pineapple and it was instantly eaten. Because of this, in my mind, a pineapple has always been something spicy-sweet with ice crystals, available only on holiday. Now I live where pineapples are three times cheaper than potatoes and sold on every street corner. >>

Thai "apples"

 
Thai "apples"

In fact we have not seen yet those classic, in our understanding, "apples" (and pears too, but now it's not about them), that were grown in Thailand. Everything that is sold in stores and even in markets is imported from the U.S., Australia and more often from China, generously covered with wax (price from 10 to 90 baht per piece, and sold by the piece), plus some hypermarkets can have "organic" apples that can spoil quickly, costing several times higher than normal.However, this article is not about them. >>

Most of us have long been accustomed to drinking bottled water instead of from a regular tap.
