Chin is my name and during this food journey you will experience the best food Bangkok’s Old City has to offer. Shops are using century-old recipes creating unforgettable food, all prepared with their hearts. During our walk you will also enjoy Bangkok’s rich and compelling heritage and old houses. If you are a dedicated foodie, this is a trip that can satisfy your taste buds!
Me, or one of my other foodie friends will meet you at 9 am in the morning for a day full of fabulous food that will satisfy your taste buds for sure. Don’t eat breakfast before starting on this food exploration as we will start with a Thai-style breakfast in one of the alleys that has century-old houses lined up on both sides of the alley. We will visit an 80-year-old Thai herb shop to learn about the use of traditional Thai medicine.
After a short visit of one of Bangkok’s most tranquil temples we continue our journey to one of the oldest (and best) markets in Bangkok. You will meet the local vendors and try a wide range of food. We will sit down to eat at two modest, but famous food shops that have been open for 30 – 50 years. Our walk is alternated with passing by some ancient buildings, shrines and local artisans.
The next stop is a very special place. An elderly woman, who prepares every dish from scratch and uses traditional methods, runs the place. You will enjoy some delicious Thai curries, salads and soups. We will finish our food journey at a shop that’s producing ice cream from young coconuts for 70 years. Taste their famous mango, coconut or durian ice cream. OMG!
This tour takes around 7 hours and is offered every day except on Sunday. Children under 4 years old are free.
