I don’t want to drag this out so I’ll just tell you up front, you’re paying too much for spring rolls.
On the beautiful, busy, highly visited island of Phuket, Thailand you can buy a plate full of spring rolls for about 120 baht ($4 USD).
So if you’re paying more than that, you should just come to Thailand and eat the spring rolls here. They’re probably better.
Here’s the catch. If you’re already in Thailand and your paying 120 baht ($4 USD) for spring rolls, you too are paying too much for spring rolls. Plenty of local restaurants will serve you delicious plates full of crunchy, just made spring rolls for 80 baht ($2.60 USD).
Sadly, these patrons are also overpaying for their spring rolls. The best spring rolls in all of Thailand are always from street vendors. You can often watch them pull the beautiful little things straight from the wok. In Phuket, there’s a curbside place that covers them in hot sauce. They are the best spring rolls in the history of spring rolls. They cost 10 baht each (30 cents, USD).
In case you are in Phuket Town or will be, I will share the location. If she starts selling out though, I’m taking the map down. So don’t tell your friends, we’ve got a great thing going here.
