Phatthalung (พัทลุง), Thailand – Welcome to Phatthalung (พัทลุง) one of the best and most relaxing and green tropical provinces in Thailand. The culture is so laid back and the food is spicy and some of my favorites in Thailand too.
Today we’re going on a jungle street food tour of Tainod Green Market (หลาดใต้โหนด https://goo.gl/maps/sK7sPjzrJtGUeM4H7), which is this amazing local market where you’ll find everything from cooked southern Thai food to market fresh ingredients to southern Thai culture. You don’t want to miss the amazing food selection. Here’s what I ate:
Chicken – 15 Baht ($0.48) per piece – This was honestly some of the best grilled chicken I’ve had in a long time. It was so perfectly flavorful and rich, and smoky.
Rice and curry – 50 THB ($1.59) – Can’t ever beat a plate of rice and curry when you’re in Phatthalung (พัทลุง), just the best, it’s a meal I never get tired of.
Rice noodles – 15 THB ($0.48) – Next up for a plate of freshly made khanom jeen rice noodles. The southern Thai curries are pungent and spicy.
Arenga pinnata palm fruit (ลูกชก) – Another snack you’ll find is the jelly fruit from a palm tree called the Arenga pinnata. Unique and very good.
Fried cempedak – 20 THB ($0.64) – Next up for one of the greatest deep fried fruits in the world. It’s not a jackfruit, but a cempedak, which is common in southern Thailand and Malaysia. It’s so good, and almost has a natural honey juiciness to it. When you open a cempedak, if you do it correctly – I haven’t done it correctly many times, it opens so the skin peels and all the fruit remains on the core. Deep fried is heaven.
Snakefruit – 20 THB ($0.64) – Finally to complete this Thai jungle street food tour at Tainod Green Market (หลาดใต้โหนด) I had a bowl of peeled snake fruit. I loved the natural packaging.
It’s an amazing market, one of my favorite markets in all of Thailand. The atmosphere, the greenness, and the delicious Thai food is what makes it spectacular.
