    Chef Nutth grew up in Bangkok’s Chinatown, where he learned about the best street food in the neighborhood’s hidden back alleys. He led us on an amazing tour to some stalls and carts that we would never have been able to find on our own. In some cases, vendors had been selling their specialty food for 50 years! Much of the food is a blend of Chinese and Thai cuisine that morphed together over many years. We had satay, dumplings, curry, noodle soup, local drinks, and much, much more.

    When our group took an interest in some unusual fruit (snake fruit!) a vendor was selling, Chef Nutth got some for us to try, even though it wasn’t part of the tour. We also sat down at one of the neighborhood’s famous seafood restaurants for oyster omelet, seafood hot pot and mussels. The tour ended with three fantastic dessert stops: soy sauce soft-serve ice cream, amazing warm Chinese donuts that you dip in pandan custard, and mango sticky rice. The tour advertises 17 tastes, but I think our tour group got even more.

    One thing to be prepared for is a wait to be seated at the seafood restaurant. We had to hang out for about 20 minutes before our group got a table. It’s a fascinating scene, though, watching the chefs cook and checking out the crowds on the street.

    Some of the places we visited looked pretty funky – but my friend and I ate everything and had no problems whatsoever. Chef Nutth was well-organized and took great care of the entire group. Because most of the vendors are very busy, you don’t have the chance to really talk with them, as happens on some food tours, but Chef Nutth has a lot of expertise and told some of their stories. Being a Thai, he’s rather reserved, although happy to explain things if you ask questions. His English is excellent, too.
