      You may remember a?restaurant I wrote about in Phuket called Yoy Pochana.

      But this?restaurant is called Noy Pochana (?????????????), a similar name, but very?different food in Phuket.

      Noy Pochana (?????????????) is really just a typical neighborhood style southern Thai food restaurant in Phuket Town, but the food was top-notch?for all 3 meals in a row that I ate there.

      The flavors were nothing short of proper southern Thai – vibrant, spicy, and full on flavor.

      Usually when I travel anywhere, whether it be in Thailand or elsewhere, while I like to try as many new restaurants as I can, there’s often a restaurant right near where I’m staying that I keep coming back to – for both convenience and good food.

      For me, when my wife and I were in Phuket Town for a couple weeks, that restaurant, the one we just had to walk down the road to eat at, and where I came to know the food was going to be marvelous every-time we sat down, was Noy Pochana (?????????????).

      Note: When we were in Phuket Town last time we stayed at The Tint Hotel*

      An incredibly flavorful bowl of southern Thai sour curry (????????????????)

      Part of the reason I kept coming back was for their gaeng som (????????????????), southern Thai sour curry:

      This stuff was pure fire and flavor in a bowl.

      Southern Thai gaeng som has been among my list of favorite Thai dishes ever since I had my first taste of it from my wife years ago, and it’s a dish I eat frequently when I’m at home (check out the full recipe here if you’re interested in making it).

      Unlike central Thai gaeng som that’s more of a sweet and sour soup, southern Thai gaeng som is sour, spicy, and teeming with fresh turmeric to give it its vibrantly orange color.

      At Noy Pochana (?????????????) I ordered gaeng som with yord ma prow, which are coconut shoots (kind of like bamboo shoots but coconut shoots), and it also came with barramundi fish.

      The blend of spices included a lovely chili heat, thick turmeric, and it was salty and sour.?The gaeng som (????????????????)?was exactly the way I love it – full of powerful?flavor.

      This dish is called bai liang pad kai (???????????????)

      Another dish I can’t resist ordering in southern Thailand is bai liang pad kai (???????????????), melinjo leaves stir fried with egg.

      While sometimes it can be a little moist?when it’s not cooked on a high enough heat, they made no mistake with it at Noy Pochana (?????????????) – the egg was scorched, and the melinjo leaves were wilted but still crisp, and it was dry and flavorful – the way it’s typically supposed to be.

      pad pak bung (??????????) – stir fried water morning glory

      Their pad pak bung?(??????????), stir fried water morning glory, was also good. And although you can’t see the chilies in the photo, I can assure you, there were little green chilies packed within.

      The pad pad boong (??????????)?had a nice garlic smoky flavor, and they used fermented soy bean sauce to give it flavor as well.

      pad pak ruam (?????????)
      pad pak ruam (?????????) – stir fried mixed vegetables

      On another evening eating at Noy Pochana (?????????????) I ordered just a plain plate of pad pak ruam (?????????), mixed vegetables, stir fried with garlic and soy sauce.

      Cooking on a high pressure flame, the vegetables had the scorched flavor I always crave.

      pla meuk pad ped (??????????????) – squid in curry paste

      Another dish I tried was the pla meuk pad ped (??????????????), squid stir fried in curry paste.

      While sometimes throughout Thailand you order pad ped (stir fried curry) and they add some sugar to sweeten it up and balance the spices and chilies, in much of the south, and at Noy Pochana (?????????????),?it’s all about the heavy spice without the sweetness.

      The squid was spongy and bouncy and the curry sauce was spicy, salty, with a slight mustardy flavor from the turmeric,?and a fresh touch of shaved kaffir lime leaves and basil for fragrance.

      Just like the gaeng som (??????), it was vibrantly flavorful.

      Raw garnishing vegetables

      Along with southern Thai food it’s typical to have a plate of raw garnishing vegetables called pak naw in the south of Thailand.

      At this restaurant, the?raw vegetables included cucumber, white turmeric, long beans, Thai eggplant, and sprouts.


      Noy Pochana (?????????????) is a neighborhood southern Thai food restaurant in Phuket Town.

      It happened to be located just a little ways down the road from where my wife and I were staying, and every night we passed,?we saw the restaurant was always packed.

      One night we stopped for dinner,?and the food was superb.

      There’s nothing fancy about Noy Pochana (?????????????), but the flavors of the dishes they serve, especially the southern Thai dishes, are?packed full of vibrant flavor.

      Their gaeng som was seriously addicting.

      Noy Pochana (?????????????)

      Address: 21 Thanon Montri, Tambon Talad Yai, Amphoe Muang, Phuket 8300
      Open hours: 5 pm – 2 am everyday
      Prices: I failed to write down the price of each dish, because after I finished I was in a daze of chili and on an overdose of flavor. But if I remember correctly each dish was about 100 – 200 THB. The prices I thought were a little high until I saw the portion size – which is much bigger than normal Thai restaurants. So you do pay a little more than a typical local restaurant, but the quality and portion size more than makes up for it.

      ??????? 21 ??? ????? ???????????? ????????? ??????? ?????? 83000
      ???????????????? 17.00 – 02.00 ?
