Pirrera Bakery Cafe Bar and Mor See Seafood @ Phuket - พีเรร่า เบเกอรี่ คาเฟ่ บาร์ และ ร้านหมอสีซีฟู้ด @ ภูเก็ต

Here are another two places in Phuket that we visited during our visit in late 2013. Pirrera Bakery Cafe Bar is pretty much in the city center and is so close to the famous restaurant Raya. The other one is Mor See Seafood which is, I would say, near city center but a little bit further only. In brief, I would recommend any visitor to give Mor See a go.

Cuisine: cafe food / bakery
Price: THB150 per person without alcohol (what we paid for)
Visited: 20 December 2013
Food: 3/10
Atmosphere: 5/10
Value for money: 3/10
Services: 4/10
Scale: [ 1=poor ----- 5=average/standard ----- 10=outstanding/exceptional ]

Pirrera Bakery Cafe Bar is located right at one of the corners of the famous junction where Dibuk Road and Yaowarat Road intersect in Phuket. This place is simply cafe and bakery that is decorated in an old fashion / retro way. For those who drive, you will have to find a parking space along Dibuk Road as Pirrera does not provide any parking lots.

This retro cafe is quite lovely to sit around in fact. The place is spacious and there are 2 storeys. Here they provide those simple Western food like sandwiches and the rest would be pastry and beverage such as basic cafe latte, iced chocolate, brownie, and even Thai dessert.

As we only popped by to kill our time before dinner, we only had three things here: crispy chestnuts (4/10), brownie with vanilla ice-cream (3/10), and iced chocolate (3/10). To be honest, crispy chestnuts seemed to be in a more acceptable range that the western choices. Brownie and vanilla ice-cream was ways too sweet. I cannot not see how brownie here can be a signature dish at all. Pricing wise is also over the top. THB139 at Phuket for a piece of brownie and a simple scoop vanilla ice-cream. I was mad surely to pay for it. Iced chocolate was as well just a standard chocolate. I would even think somehow iced chocolate / milo / ovaltine from street side trolley is more enjoyable. But I paid THB100 for this glass to kill the time.

Well, it was just an experience anyway. We don't think that we would ever return to this place. Unless you really have nothing to do or find a way to kill your time in the centre of Phuket, Pirrera may be a choice as the atmosphere is not bad.

Mor See Seafood or Pla Mor See Seafood is located on Kra Road which is parallel to Phuket Road and right next to the canal (follow the link above for map). I was brought here by the local Phuket. I thought and was in confident that this was sure a delicious destination and it did not disappoint me at all. The pricing of dishes here has also been kept at reasonable level. Just ignore the local and non-civilise atmosphere (if ones may think), and enjoy your dishes here. On a good fine day, sitting outside the store by the canal can be more cheerful. In this case, I mean when it is not too hot. By the way, you sure will have to drive here and you can park anywhere along Kra Road.

I have to confess that I did not order any of the dishes myself. But they were all nice. The one that almost every one has to order was steamed chicken with fermented soya bean sauce - ไก่แป๊ะซะ. This was tender and flavourful, a really must try dish indeed. All the rest were all as well fabulous. But bear in mind that many dishes can be hot and spicy. Be sure to make them aware in advance if you cannot take the Thai Southern style spiciness.
