1. Hua Hin: Sunset Local Eats Thai Food Tour
Ever wondered how, where and what locals eat at night? This tour is about the evening local food fix; where Thais go for freshly cooked takeaway meals or to eat out. This tour is about getting ‘under the skin’ of the food scene in Hua Hin and exploring where locals go to eat at night. It’s about seeing the freshest local produce in a local food market full of tasty delights. In the market, we will be eating standing up. This way we can move around and sample what the vendors have to offer. We then leave the market and visit two local eateries, finishing up at a street food vendor to sample Thai sweets. Come hungry!! We first start by exploring the fresh ingredients that make up the flavours of Thai food. You will see local chefs and restaurant owners here buying their ingredients for the next day, indicating that the produce is of the highest quality. We then make our way to the front of the market, where there are a myriad of vendors cooking and selling their food. Our passionate ‘foodie’ tour guides will guide you through the market; sampling as we go. In this true local market, we will taste whatever we find that looks good on the day, as not all vendors are there every day. Taste Northeastern pork sausages, Sai Krok Isaan, the way the locals eat them, try northern food at a very popular food stall as well as sampling some unfamiliar but tasty fruits. We then travel to a local eatery where we will sample some great dishes from the central and northern regions. This out of the way garden restaurant serves up some interesting dishes that you may not have had before, but may become your new favourite! Dishes like Yam Naem Khao Thot Fermented Pork Salad w/- Crispy Rice Balls or Khao Soi Gai Chiang Mai Noodles (similar to Laksa). Our next stop is a very local restaurant specialising in Miang Bplaa Phao: Salt Crusted Grilled Fish; we wrap this in lettuce leaves along with lots of herbs. This venue also serves many other Isaan dishes, so we will look to try a vibrant salad or something else from the wonderful world of Isaan food. Our last stop is to a popular sweets vendor. Thai sweets can challenge the senses but are truly delicious and a great way to finish a food tour. Note: This tour is not suitable for strict vegetarians or guests who are vegan.
