A Chef's Tour Bangkok

On our recent trip to Bangkok, Thailand we had a foodie experience unlike no other on A Chef's Tour.  We always love to try local food and when we travel and a great way to take in the history of the area and the local food is to take a foodie tour.  Most cities around the world have them now and you can easily book them online.  Foodie tours are an excellent way to experience local ingredients and cooking techniques.
A Chef’s Tour is a new concept in culinary travel and exploration. Their English speaking and professionally trained guides lead small group tours to the best places to eat both with and like the locals.  The owners of A Chef's Tour, brothers Alex and Luke Charny started A Chef's Tour with one simple aim – to create the world's best food tasting tours that even chefs will enjoy.

Luke and Alex have traveled the world over and wanted to create a tour that would help people understand regional food, it's history and the local ingredients being used.  They wanted to step out of the typical tourist trap tours and want their customers to walk away from an “experience” they will always remember.  All of the tours are led by highly-knowledgeable chefs, cooks, and foodies like themselves.

The Food

A little piece of advice, on the day that you take this tour, be sure to eat light.  This tour is around 3.5 to 4 hours long and comes with A LOT of wonderful food.  You don't want to miss out on any of it because you are full.

A Chef's Tour takes place in Yaowarat, which is Bangkok's Chinatown.  It might sound a little odd to visit Thailand and plan to eat in Chinatown.  However, the Chinese influence over centuries of immigration in Thailand has permeated almost every part of Thai culture including the cuisine.  A lot of Thai dishes have some type of Chinese influence.

Tour Guide Chef Nutth

For my family tour, we had Chef Nutth as our guide and we loved our experience with him. The entire experience feels like you are on an episode of Anthony Bourdain (may he rest in peace).  Your intimate tour group (8 maximum) is taken into the back alleys of Bangkok's Chinatown to find the most delicious Chinese/Thai food we have ever had.  The typical tourist would not normally venture into the establishments because they are not in the center areas, they are off the path where the locals live and work.   All throughout the tour, Chef Nutt described all the ingredients and how they connected back to Thai culture.

Patongo (Deep-fried Chinese dough)

Patongo

Patongo is a delicious local favorite.  It is deep-fried Chinese dough and it comes with a pandan coconut sauce or condensed milk. This streetfood trolley earned a Michelin “Plate” award for their outstanding preparation of these tasty treats.

Must-Do

My family and I enjoyed all of the places we visited and all of the food we tried.  As I stated earlier, the tour comes with a lot of food. I didn't have room on this post to place a picture of all of the dishes we were served.  If you are ever in Bangkok – A Chef's Tour is a must-do.  A Chef's Tour also offers tours in several other countries.  For a full list of all of their locations and to book a tour, click on their website below and/or on their social channels.The METFoodie 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.
