Tamarind

Thai Fruit

dining thai fruit

Thai name: Makham wan
Season: December to March

The fruit is, as the name suggests, a sweet variety of a fruit generally associated with an acid taste. After being peeled it is generally eaten fresh, though boiled in water it also makes a refreshing juice. Other, more sour varieties of tamarind are used in various cooked dishes for flavoring.

Most of Phuket's nightlife and its cheap shopping is located in Patong, and the area has become increasingly developed.
