Yi Yi South Clouds Restaurant
To get a taste of traditional Yun Nan noodles and other cuisine in Phuket, Yi Yi South Clouds Restaurant is one that you should not miss. This restaurant is famous among the local Chinese community and through words of mouth, it is getting popular among the tourists. Most of the time, it is the Chinese tour guides who bring the tourists to this place. Then some tourists pay their second visit during their stay in Phuket.
The exterior is not at all impressive and for those who visit this restaurant for the first time, they may be deterred by the look from the outside.
The flat noodle and kuay tiaw themselves are bland in taste. This is why the minced pork toppings are essential to add flavors to the dishes. Need stronger taste? The fish sauce and salt are always at your disposal.
This is one of the dishes that everyone from Yun Nan will have on their table. To prepare the dish, the minced pork is stir fried with fermented Sichuan vegetable and other seasonings, making it salty and sour. It can be served as an appertizer or a main dish.
We were told that the raw ingredients used to make this dish are imported from Yun Nan. This authentic fermented vege is best to go with rice as it is more salty and less sour.
Peanut as the base of the broth and vegetable as the content, this soup is boiled in the hot pot. The appearance may look spicy but it is not actually.
