Thank you to Andrew Zimmern ( Patrick Weiland, Erin, and the entire team for the opportunity to hang out and eat some of the best Thai food in Bangkok!
Eating Thai Food with Andrew Zimmern:
00:11 Lunch at home in Bangkok – Before going to meet up with Andrew Zimmern, I had a quick early lunch back at home. My meal included some tom yum pla too (Thai tom yum soup with mackerel) and a quick kai jeow (Thai omelet).
2:06 Meeting up with Andrew Zimmern – We headed to the Dusit Zoo in Bangkok to meet up with Andrew Zimmern, and after the TV film crew arrived, I jumped into a tuk tuk and we picked up Andrew. From there, we drove around in the tuk tuk getting to know each other and started heading to the Soei restaurant area.
3:46 Soei Restaurant ( – One of my all time favorite restaurants in Bangkok, and I was extrmeely excited to eat here with Andrew Zimmern. We ordered a few of my favorite dishes including Thai crab curry, and also tom yum pla too, which is the same dish I had eaten for breakfast at home as well. One of the main snacks to order at Soei are the deep fried crispy mackerel heads, and they were, as always, extraordinary – crispy all the way through, lightly salted, and incredibly flavorful. Soei served us yet again another outstanding Thai meal in Bangkok.
9:34 On our way to Ratchawat Market – Along with Soei being one of my favorite restaurants in Bangkok, Ratchawat is one of my favorite markets in Bangkok. We jumped back into the tuk tuk and drove over to Ratchawat Market. Our tuk tuk driver, whose name was P’Weera, took us first to one of his favorite street food stalls in the market, which was hot dogs cooked in wrap around buns. Andrew and I both agreed that they weren’t the best things we tried, but luckily there was a lot more to eat at the market. Our next stop was for some Thai street meat at the corner stall where we sampled northern Thai sausage, and some crispy pork belly.
