Mor Mu Dong Restaurant (หมอมูดง ภูเก็ต)
If you could choose just one local restaurant to eat at in Phuket, it would have to be Mor Mu Dong Restaurant (หมอมูดง ภูเก็ต). This legendary restaurant is extremely popular for both locals and Thai tourists from Bangkok. Although they have become very well known, their food speaks for itself. The dishes are flavorful, authentic, and they have some unique Phuket dishes on their menu you won’t find elsewhere. The stuffed mackerel (ปลาทูยัดไส้) are a must, and I also really like their squid black ink (หมึกต้มน้ำดำ), melinjo leaves with egg (ผักเหมียงผัดไข่), and their curry fried eggplant (มะเขือทอดเครื่อง). You can’t really go wrong with anything you order.
