This dish is one of the most popular dainties of the Thai cuisine – an unusual soup with coconut milk, chicken, seafood and sometimes even mushrooms.
How to try Tom Kha soup in Phuket
To gain a little understanding of the names of Thai soups, here's a little help. The word "tom" literally means "to boil" – this is easy. Next is a word, specifying the composition of the dish - "yam", for example, is a Thai spicy salad, but "kha" means that the soup is cooked with coconut milk. Finally, the third word in the name of a dish may be its main ingredient, for example, "kai" - chicken.

Thus, Tom Kha Kai is a coconut soup with chicken. Thanks to the addition of coconut milk, the taste of the soup turns out very peculiar and unusual. Yet, it will be even more exotic if instead of chicken you order your Tom Kha with seafood.

Perhaps, this coconut soup together with Tom Yam and Som Tam are the "key" to the Thai cuisine, they represent the national flavor in full, and without them it is hardly possible to judge about authentic Thai cooking in general.

How much?

the average cost of a dish is 150 baht.
