Phuket is full of Western restaurants. And some of them serve down-home American chow. If you want to indulge in some American style comfort food, local foodies say these are the best American restaurants in Phuket. But call ahead to make sure they will be open.
Where to Eat in Phuket
Americans will celebrate Thanksgiving in 2020 on Thurday 26 November. Needless to say, it is the one of the most important holidays of the year in the United States.
Many of the U.S. nationals living in Phuket will celebrate the Thanksgiving the way it is celebrated in the U.S.
For example, they will feast on turkey with all the trimmings at home.
But you don’t have to hail from the Land of the Free to indulge in American fare in the Land of Smiles.
So why not leaving the cooking to someone else and celebrate Thanksgiving at one of the many American eateries dotting Phuket?
But make sure to call ahead to make sure you can book a table at your favourite American eatery.
Where to Eat American Food in Phuket
I asked local foodies to recommend the best American restaurants in Phuket. As a result I came up with this top 10 list.
However, not all of these restaurants are exclusively American restaurants. But they do all have American dishes on their menus.
At least five restaurants will be serving special menus on Thanksgiving. While not all of them are exclusively American eateries, they should have turkey on the menu.
