Moon Dolpin, Koh Phangan

Our entire time in Koh Phangan, we hardly ventured from the grounds of Tommy Resort, except for our trip to Thong Sala for the night markets.

Conveniently though, at the end of the driveway, was Moon Dolphin. I love the way Brett described this place when we first arrived "It's just like a Thai street vendor with a roof". Sweet!

The larb muu was first on the list. We tried this little spicy gem at the karaoke party a few nights before. The pork version was loaded with all bits pig, mince, intestine, liver, heart and plenty spicy with a plate of crisp vegetables on the side.

The yam sam krop was next. The awesome salad of three crispies, this particular variety with pork rind, squid and prawns packed with cashews, tomato and baby celery in a glistening chilli sauce.

Moon dolphin was also a perfect lunch spot, whipping up a mean khao kru gupi, fried rice with shrimp paste and loads of condiments.

And a breakfast staple, johk, with pork meatballs floating around in rice soup with ginger and white pepper.

We stopped here daily on our time in Koh Phangan, as it was also an excuse to play with the cute little puppies.
