Some of the Food in Phi Phi Island

Phi Phi island is one of the highly visited islands in Krabi and majority of the tourists are westerners. You can hardly find any Thai people except for the local shop workers. Basically you can find different types of food in Phi Phi Island. However the majority of the restaurants there served western food such as grilled salmon, pizza, American breakfast and etc. Most of the Thai food we found over there were overprice compare to the food you can get in Ao Nang. 

Most of the Thai food stores are not located in the main street of Phi Phi Island and you have to take the back alley or maybe the street that is with less people. I don't have a map to show you where I found all these food but i do hope the sign board helps a little bit. 

Pad Thai is thai's fried glass noodle. It's one of my favorite dishes in Thailand and everywhere i go i would order their Pad Thai because it taste differently. The sprinkle of crunch peanut  and juice of lime intensified the aroma of Pad Thai. Not to forget the spicy chili flakes and chili oil makes it even more delicious. 

You can spot this Thai Grilled Pork Satay along the way to View Point Hill. It's called Mu Ping and it's one of the best food you must try in any part of Thailand. The tender juice meat is indescribable and I always have this whenever I spot a stall selling it. It's way better than any pork satay I can find in my place Sabah. Oh by the way it's not expensive and it cost around 20Baht to 30Baht. 

Thai Beef Noodle - Gwaytio Neu Nam. I'm a hakka-chinese and beef noodle is like a culture food for us too because we have our own version of it which is called Ngau Chap or Ngau Nam. Which sound similar to the name of beef noodle in Thai. After having thai beef noodle, I could conclude that both are equally good. The beef broth in Thai isn't as beefy as the one we have in Sabah but the meat and meatballs is fresh and juicy. At the end of the day, I love any beef noodle serve on to me.

This pancake over here is like murtabak kosong with nutella spread on it. It's a unique food where they normally call it as pancake over there. I read articles mentioning about it was inspired by the Inidian culture food Roti Canai but with their creativity, they have created lots of varieties of pancake. 

p/s: The pancake in Phi Phi Island is 3 times more expensive than the one you can find in Krabi City. The price increase exponentially from Krabi, Ao Nang to Phi Phi.

So there you go! These are some of the food I tried in Phi Phi Island. I stayed at Phi Phi island for 2 days 1 night and didn't get to try much food over there.
