Dive into Delicious Thai Food and Learn About the Gorgeous Restaurant in RHUGT Season 3's Premiere
The ladies of The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip Season 3 got to know each other better and squash a potential argument at Three Monkeys Phuket in the first episode.
Half the fun of an international trip is tasting the cuisine, and with the cast of The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip Season 3 in Thailand, you can bet mouthwatering Thai food will be on the menu frequently. Here's where the women went for dinner in the premiere episode of RHUGT Season 3.
The first outing for the Housewives was at Three Monkeys Phuket, a restaurant which boasts authentic Southern Thai cuisine on its menu. The atmosphere can’t be beat, as we saw in the episode: Three Monkeys is surrounded by lush jungle greenery, making it look like the 'Wives were traipsing through a real jungle, not a luxurious restaurant.
The restaurant’s natural surroundings help it blend with the nearby outdoor attraction Hanuman World. Hanuman World includes the biggest rainforest zipline park in Thailand, as well as a rainforest sky walk.
The decorations only add to the ambiance of the restaurant. Plants are hung from the ceilings and the walls are strewn with lights inside. Appropriately, it also has the Three Wise Monkey statues (the namesake of the restaurant) who are known for their proverbial saying, "See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil."
Even the roof is thatched with a palm frond canopy to make it look as if you’re eating in the middle of a jungle treehouse.
The flooring also is made of wooden beams, but it’s not particularly Housewife-friendly, as The Real Housewives Of Potomac's Candiace Dillard Bassett quickly got her high heel stuck in the cracks and had to abandon her shoes to get to the table.
While the atmosphere is total vacation vibes, the menu is also what you’d hope for on a fancy trip. We get to hear what a few of the Housewives ordered — with Candiace choosing a spider roll (as long as it doesn’t have fish eggs), The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City's Whitney Rose selecting mango sticky rice, and The Real Housewives of Potomac's Gizelle Bryant going with edamame. A closer look at the menu online shows signature dishes like Kai Yang Wanon (“wanon” BBQ half chicken), Moo Ob Anajak (stew belly pork slices served with preserved white radish), and Hanuman Prasanguy (local vegetable boiled in coconut milk, served with minced prawn dip in shrimp paste).

Appetizers include fish balls and Thai spring rolls. Various fried rices, Pad Thai, soups and sashimi are available to order as well. There's also an extensive cocktail menu!
We can't wait to see what other restaurants the Real Housewives visit in Thailand.
