A Chef's Tour Bangkok

During our recent trip to Bangkok, Thailand, we had an amazing foodie experience with A Chef's Tour. We always enjoy trying local food whenever we travel, and taking a foodie tour is a great way to learn about the area's history and local cuisine. You can easily book foodie tours online for most cities around the world. These tours are an excellent way to experience local ingredients and cooking techniques.
 
A Chef's Tour offers a unique concept in culinary travel and exploration. The company's professionally trained guides, who speak English, lead small groups to the best places to eat like the locals. Brothers Luke and Alex Charny, who own A Chef's Tour, started the company with a simple aim – to create the world's best food-tasting tours that even chefs would enjoy.
 
Luke and Alex have traveled extensively around the world and wanted to create a tour that would help people understand regional food, its history, and the local ingredients used. They wanted to move away from the typical tourist trap tours and provide their customers with an “experience” they would never forget. All their tours are led by chefs, cooks, and foodies who are highly knowledgeable and passionate about food.

The Food

Take note of this little piece of advice: on the day that you go on this tour, make sure you eat light. The tour lasts around 3.5 to 4 hours and will offer you a lot of delicious food. You don't want to miss out on any of it just because you're already full.

A Chef's Tour takes place in Yaowarat, Bangkok's Chinatown. You might think that visiting Thailand and eating in Chinatown is odd, but Chinese influence has been present in Thai culture for centuries because of immigration. This influence has seeped into almost every aspect of Thai culture, including its cuisine. In fact, a lot of Thai dishes have some type of Chinese influence.

Tour Guide Chef Nutth

During our family tour, we were fortunate enough to have Chef Nutth as our guide and he made our experience truly unforgettable. The whole experience felt like we were a part of an episode of Anthony Bourdain's show. Chef Nutth took our small and intimate tour group, which consisted of a maximum of eight people, deep into the back alleys of Bangkok's Chinatown. There we discovered some of the most delicious Chinese/Thai food that we have ever tasted. These hidden gems were not the typical tourist spots, as they were situated off the beaten path where locals live and work. Throughout the tour, Chef Nutth described all the ingredients used in the dishes and how they were linked back to Thai culture.

Patongo is a local delicacy consisting of deep-fried Chinese dough served with either pandan coconut sauce or condensed milk. This street food trolley was awarded a Michelin “Plate” for their exceptional preparation of this dish.

Must-Do

My family and I had a great time exploring different places and trying out various cuisines during our Bangkok trip. As I mentioned earlier, the tour we went on included a lot of food, and we were served a variety of dishes that I couldn't capture in a single post. I highly recommend A Chef's Tour if you ever visit Bangkok. They also offer tours in several other countries. To see a complete list of their locations and to book a tour, you can visit their website or check out their social media channels.

Foodie Tours

Whether it's your first time in a foreign location or returning to one of your favorite travel destinations – foodie tours are the way to go.  When traveling to new places, selecting where you want to eat can be overwhelming.  There are so many choices and you want to make sure you select places that you will enjoy.  You also want to know what you're eating if you are not familiar with the language.
