What You Can Expect
Taste curry puffs at a street food vendor; sip Thai iced tea or coffee at the Bang Rak Bazaar; bite into a sampling of tropical fruits at Bangkok’s second-oldest wet market; and try Chinese herbal drinks at a local Chinese grocery, located in a traditional shophouse.
You’ll visit a family-run eatery to share plates of fried and roasted chicken noodles topped with egg. Then walk to a traditional Thai sweet shop for a tempting dessert platter. Be sure to save some room for som tam (green papaya salad) at an establishment popular with locals, and don’t be shy about tasting larb (minced meat salad) — a northern Thai staple.
Savor the regional flavors of Thai curry at your last stop, a traditional royal Thai restaurant run by descendants of the royal family, before your tour ends at a nearby BTS station.

My husband and i really enjoyed this tour that was booked as gift from my mother while on a family trip in bangkok.
Our tour guide Jung was more than kind and easy to talk to and ask questions, we enjoyed on how intimate the tour was and how much food we actually got to try my favourite the traditional pulled milk tea from a cart on the side of the road that we would of never stopped at.
I would strongly suggest to any of our friends and family to book this tour.
Thank you again for this experience.

So much fun! Great food places.
A lovely excursion with Thee. I thoroughly enjoyed the food tasting and also a little of the history of Bangkok food. I can highly recommend this tour.
We took part in this tour on 23 February a group of 4 from USA 3 from Australia 1 from New Zealand and we 2 from UK and had the most amazing time. Our guide for the evening, Wallop Kittiwititkun known as Joker was so knowledgeable about so much not just the food and drink that we would not have missed this for the world and would most certainly highly recommend the tour to everyone. Obviously, with this kind of thing, you are not too sure what you may be letting yourself in for - but there was no need to worry. Of all that we ate or drank during the evening, I think there was only one drink that we could probably do without ever tasting again and maybe one of the very many foods that most of our group weren't too keen on - the main thing was that the whole experience was great fun and extremely informative, visiting several very different types of establishment. Joker even took photos during the tour and emailed copies to all in the group - thank you so much Mr. Joker - you certainly caught a few good expressions on our faces.
Our guide Jung, from Taste of Thailand tours was fantastic and very informative. I had a great time and will recommend this tour to all my friends.
The food was very good. As expected, I loved some items and others... not so much, but I knew what I was getting myself in to. The tour guide was extremely professional and knowledgeable about the City and Country. All in all it was a wonderful afternoon focused around amazing food and an exceptional culture. This is a MUST DO!
Wow! what a tour and experience. We met our guide Wallop Kittiwititkun otherwise known by Joker what a nice guy he is and took us to place you would not dare to venture on you own! We were very lucky on this trip as there was only my wife, a young travelling girl from California and myself. Our 1st taste was a roadside stall that done pancakes, then to a food hall where we sampled a 3 month old egg! not as bad as you would think, with some morning glory and then onto a fruit and veg market followed by several other real Thai shops and eateries to learn and eat how the locals do! Then to finish off at the other end of the scale at a high glass restaurant. You don't need anything to eat before you go! As you will be totally stuffed by the time you have finished.
If you have an open mind and like culture this is a must trip. We were both okay after eating everything that was put to us to try even the 3 month old egg! Even my wife and she can be a fussy eater at times! We also done the Chinatown food tour. Wear good comfortable footwear as you do walk a fair bit.

This was one of the best tours I booked through this site. I got to taste delicious food, all the while learning many different things about food districts, ingredients, different aspects of Bangkok and Thailand. Our guide Joker was determined to make this a great experience, and he succeeded! I highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Bangkok, and make sure start the tour with an empty stomach!
