Street food and hawker stalls in Phuket
Freshly cut fruit is also widely sold by vendors who walk the streets pulling their stall along looking for customers. The fruit is packed in ice behind glass to keep it cold and fresh. You choose you piece and the vendor will whip out his cutting board and knife and chop it into easy bite size pieces, pop it into a bag along with a skewer as your eating utensil. You will be offered a little bag filled with sugar and salt/chilli mix – the Thai’s like to dip their fresh fruit into this for a little extra bite!

Stainless Steel Carts
The next step up in sophistication is the mobile vendor selling wares from a stainless steel cart with wheels, pulled or pushed along the road. You can find a great range of natural ice creams. The cart is equipped with a stainless steel container packed with dry ice to keep the ice-cream icy cold. Often you’ll hear them coming before you actually see them as they often have a small cow bell attached to their stall to attract customer’s attention. Flavours include the favourite – coconut ice-cream, sometimes decorated with corn, red bean and coloured noodles made from yam paste. You can also get taro flavoured ice-cream, and the Thai’s extreme favourite – durian. Sold as small blocks set on paddle pop sticks, or scooped into little cups and then garnished with such toppings as dried crushed peanuts and lashings of condensed milk. Some stalls offer ice-cream in a bread sandwich with a choice of toppings.
