In general, Southern Thai food is renowned
for its spiciness. Much of the cuisine has its origins
in Malay, Indonesian and Indian food. Favourite dishes
from the south include Indian-style Muslim curry (massaman),
rice noodles in fish curry sauce (Khanom Jeen) and chicken
birayani. Trang also has a unique breakfast cuisine
found nowhere else in Thailand.
Trang is well-known for its many local foods such as
Mhu Yang Trang (Trang-style roasted pork), Trang cake,
Trang breakfast (Dimsum).
Local coffee shops (Ran Gafae) in Trang have their
own special menu with Go pii (black coffee served with
sugar) on it. The other is the local breakfast, Ja Kuai
(deep fried bread). Go pii and Pa Tong Ko (local sweet
donut) make the essence of the traditional Trang breakfast.
