Anfield Cafe, Phuket

15 Dec

We came across this delightful restaurant-cum-cafe-cum-bar (ergh, distinctions…) in the old part of Phuket Town, which is somewhat unsurprisingly located on Phuket.

I don’t know where they got the lettering from but it’s impressive, as is the array of collectible scarfs hanging from the ceiling, the pick of which is obvs Arsenal’s 1999 double winners scarf (that is my own unbiased opinion…)

The people who own and run the place are Joe and his Ma and Pa, a collection of three wonderful Thais, who speak perfect English and love having guests. We’ve gone back 4 days in the trot to eat, drink and chat footsie with Joe and his Dad.

The food itself is cheap and tasty, both are perennial qualities of a decent meal in my book.

Above is the pan fried chicken and cashew nut with rice. The oyster sauce that the meat and cashews is cooked in is delicious, and the cashews add a new dimension to the plain chickeny taste of chicken. The rice was nice (if anyone from Uncle Ben’s is reading this, email me and we’ll talk slogans).

One of the best all round places we’ve been to, insofar that when they got an order wrong they let us have the dish on the house, rather than blaming us for ordering wrong like most other Thai restaurants!

Excellent, excellent shit!
