This tour is for the more experienced Thai food lover. The term ‘Jing Jing’ means real or authentic. For us, it’s about doing Thai food justice.

This tour is deliberately designed with the more experienced Thai traveller in mind. It is for the traveller looking to find new and exciting Thai dishes that they have not yet tried. We try some spicy dishes along with more mild ones; all exhibiting that wonderful Thai ‘balance’.

Contrary to popular belief, not all Thais love their food searingly hot. Many prefer to opt for a more medium spice level. As long as the dish and meal are in balance, it all works. This is how we will be sampling Thai food.

We start with a local venue doing Guay Tiew Reua: Boat Noodles. This back street restaurant has big pots of broth brewing at the front where you can see the cooks preparing the bowls. They do their noodles Ayutthaya style.

Then we try some southern food, which is often redolent of Indian spices like turmeric. Dishes may include Bplaa Dook Fuu Phat Phrik Gaeng: Stir Fried Crispy Shredded Catfish, as well as either Goong Phat Sa-dtor: Stir Fried Stink Beans w/- Prawns or Khua Gling: Dry-Fried Yellow Pork Mince Curry; it is simply delicious.

NorthEastern food; the food of Isaan, is our next port of call. You can’t really use the term Jing Jing without sampling Isaan food – the flavour explosion region of Thailand. Our tour guides will try to choose dishes you have not tried before; whether that is Sup Nor Mai: Hot ‘n’ Sour Warm Bamboo Shoot Salad, or an unfamiliar version of a dish which is fast becoming Thailand’s national dish, Som Dtam: Green Papaya Salad, though they will order one of the myriad variations to the standard papaya, just to challenge your taste buds.

Over the tour, our guides will assess your level of Thai food knowledge and stop at other vendors to take your food experience to the next level. Rest assured, these are where WE like to eat; they they are not on the tourist maps, so you will be delighted with these food stops. As with all Thai meals, we will be striving for balance, so not everything will be seriously hot, but it’s all sure to be tasty.

Note: Sometimes our regular vendors are closed on the day you have a tour booked, however we have other vendors that are equally as good in the event that there are closures.

Tour Highlights:
  • Try an amazing boat noodle soup that only the locals know about
  • Sample traditional dishes from the NorthEast (Isaan) region of Thailand, known for it's salads & grilled meats.
  • Try dishes from the fiery south
  • Learn how to ease the sting of chilli when you eat it….what Thai people do!
