You'll see little carts like these all over Phuket. They're a sight for sore eyes on a hot day! Filled with ice-cold sweet fruit, it's always what I head to every afternoon. It's interesting how healthily I eat when on holiday in Phuket. It's fruits galore all the time!
This is my absolute favourite which I MUST EAT upon my arrival into Phuket or Thailand. It's a huge slice (sometimes half a fruit!) of cold and heavenly sweet pineapple. I don't understand why their pineapples are so much cheaper and sweeter than ours! I like mine with a sprinkling of spicy sugar which is just simply divine! I eat this at least twice or thrice a day everytime I'm in Thailand. Talk about O/D-ing on pineapple! The price ranges from THB10 to THB20, depending on the size of the pineapple pieces, weather and your bargaining skills! ;p Yes, ironically, we don't even try to bargain with our fruit sellers here!
This was a stall owner hard at work at cutting our guava. They keep whole fruit in their cart, except for the pineapple, and cut it only when ordered which retains all the vitamins. A whole huge guava like that costs only THB30 and ditto for the Thai sweet mangoes (though I managed to get it at THB20 one wet and stormy night!).
So whenever in Thailand or Phuket, look out for these mobile fruit vendors and pick and mix your own fruit salad. You'll love its sweetness and juiciness in the hot weather!
