Eat where the locals eat. This tour is about showcasing local food heroes at venues not on the tourist maps.

On this 3½ hour tour, your guide will take you off the beaten track. You will try some amazing tasting Thai food in humble surrounds. You will be eating with locals, which just backs up the age-old adage that ‘locals always know where to find the best food in town‘.

For this tour, you will experience venues that have a high standard of food hygiene, are family-run with family recipes, yet offer truly 5 star flavours without a 5 star appearance.

Your tour begins where locals come to satisfy their appetites to start the day. Under this traditional 2 story Thai house there are 3 generations working. There is a steady stream of hungry customers dropping by for take away, or sitting at the tables slurping freshly made noodles, all this with fresh Nam Prik Pao: Chilli Jam, taking pride of place. It’s in no way fancy, but there’s a reason for its popularity; super tasty food with fast and friendly service!

You will stop at a local restaurant to taste dishes from the Isaan region, the NorthEast. This region of Thailand is known for their spicy salads and freshly grilled meats.

We also pay a visit to a very local eatery located just opposite Glai Kangwon Palace. This restaurant exclusively serves Northern Thai cuisine. True to the palace’s translated name, Far From Worries, you have no worries to come to try two of the North’s most famous dishes in Khao Soi: Chiang Mai Noodles and Sai Ua: Chiang Mai Sausage. It’s not so easy to find great Northern food outside of the North of Thailand, but here, this woman has been serving up great Northern food for over 20 years. You’ll taste why she has been going so long.

We also squeeze in a stop at a popular area for daytime street food before finishing at a garden restaurant to taste some classic dishes from the central region of Thailand.

This tour is great for those who are new to Thailand or love seeing local life. All the food on this tour is a lower to medium spice, though very delicious. Our tour guides are very good at finding great food for you to try and ordering more spicy dishes if you like it that way.

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:
  • Start the day with a traditional Thai breakfast served with CafĂ© Boran
  • Taste freshly cooked food in and around Chat Chai market and on the streets
  • Take some instagrammable photos of street art in the old town
  • Sample Thai sweets that will challenge and delight your senses
