Phuket Night Market Food | Offbeat Thailand | Indian Travel Blogger

(customers chatting) – Yay! So what do you do aftera long day of work? – In Phuket, you go to a night market.

– Welcome, to the Phuket Indy Market! (upbeat music) The Indy Market is located in Dibuk Road, Phuket town.

It's an independent night market, with delicious food and quirky shops.

What's special about this market, is that many start up folks and teenagers set up stalls to learnhow to run a business.

The parents and the localcommunity encourage them.

It's full of cool young people shopping and eating and chilling.

You will not find a lot of tourists here, and the vibe, it's very local.

The best part about thismarket is that the people support the youngstersto take part in business, plan their own shops, andinteract with new people.

This is the reason why wewanted to show you this market.

Let's go.

Dumplings, in coconut milk.

Let's eat.

(singing in background) Mm, it's so nice.

I expected these to be very sweet but they're kind of salty, and with the sweetnessof the coconut milk, they go really well.

It's like a very niceexplosion of sweet and savory.

Delicious.

Mm, coconut! (upbeat music) – I found veggie spring rolls! Oh my god, they're a rarity.

(upbeat music) – We see these a lot in Thailand.

We don't know what these are called, but these are basically mini crepes, and they are really thinwith fillings inside so.

Very fun.

This one is some type of custard.

– [Avi] Hey, leave some for me.

– Oh yeah, I like the custard the best.

(upbeat music) – They love their instant noodles here.

This is instant soba.

It's so simple, it's, it'ssoba, veggies and some sauce.

And lucky for me, it's vegetarian! (upbeat music) – Another instant noodles concoction.

Oh my god.

This is one of the bestways to eat noodles, like, in the world.

And lots of chili.

(upbeat music) – Guys look what I've found.

And it's sugary so, it's fantastic.

– Ahhh that's why, okay.

– So these are Thai coconut pancakes.

They're made with gratedcoconut, sugar, condensed milk.

They have different fillings, like the sweet potato, this is sesame, and there'scorn, but I hate corn.

It's amazing how they use sweet potato.

I'm going to, I think, I just think you can just bite it, no? (crunching) (Avi laughs) – It's purple, and I don't think you'resupposed to eat the peel.
