Chalong Mayor gets cooking at Phuket food, entertainment festival

PHUKET: The first annual “Chalong Food and Entertainment Festival” kicked off in Phuket last night, and will continue to offer a wide variety of food and beverage options, as well as staged entertainment through to Monday night.

The five-day event is open from 4pm to midnight in the field opposite Wat Ladthi Wanaram (“Wat Tai”), on Chao Fa East Road in Chalong.

Phuket MP Raywat Areerob presided over the opening ceremony, which included a competition to create the best dish of phad khaw khua phuket (Phuket fried roasted rice).

Mayor Samran, who knows his way around a wok, also fried up a huge serving of Hokkien noodles, which were then shared with fellow Thai cooks from Chalong.
