Vegetarian Festival in Phuket: Fried Noodles

Now it's time for the Vegetarian Festival in Phuket. Add me, and I will tell you a brief history of Kathu Shrine. This is the first shrine in Phuket where this tradition began.
According to the year 1825, an opera group from China came to perform the opera at Ban Kathu. An epidemic has occurred. The head of the group, therefore, performed a ceremony to eat vegetables to worship the gods. "Kew Emperor" and "King Song Teh," and it appears that the disease has completely disappeared. For this reason, the people of Kathu have faith as well and followed up with a ceremony to eat vegetables every year starting from the 1st day of the waxing moon to the 9th day of the ninth lunar month (according to the Chinese calendar), a total of 9 days and 9 nights, which is held as a tradition. Phuket residents refer to this Kathu shrine as "Am Kathu" or "Chai Tung" ("Am" means shrine), with the belief that you should come here to seek protection from the sacred, life protection, prosperity, and freedom from disease.
Therefore, who intends to come and eat vegetables in Phuket? invited to pay homage to the Lord Buddha image at Kathu Ah, the origin of the tradition of eating vegetables. This year, the festival of eating vegetables falls on September 26–October 4, 2022.

Let's come to Phuket to eat vegetarian food. The menu that cannot be missed and is everywhere on every street corner around Phuket is "Mee Pad Vegetarian." However, this location may differ from others. With noodles here, they use Hokkien noodles. It's fresh, round noodles that are stir-fried, similar to stir-fried soy sauce but with a more watery texture. When it comes to the Vegetarian Festival, vegetables will be added instead of meat or eggs. You will get fragrant fried noodles from vegetables such as choy sum, baby corn, and shiitake mushrooms. Let me tell you that some people eat vegetarian for nine days. They can eat vegetarian noodles for all nine days because the fried noodles are fragrant and delicious. I recommend you try the hot and delicious vegetarian stir-fried noodles as well. You will like it.
