Hua Hin: 3.5-Hour Eat Like a Local Small-Group Food Tour

1. Hua Hin: 3.5-Hour Eat Like a Local Small-Group Food Tour

On this 3.5-hour tour, go off the beaten track with a friendly guide. Eat with the locals, reinforcing the age-old adage that "locals always know where to find the best food in town." Experience venues that have a high standard for food hygiene, are family-run with family recipes, and offer truly five-star flavors without a five-star appearance. Your tour begins in a traditional, two-story Thai house where three generations work. There is a steady stream of hungry customers dropping by for takeout, or sitting at the tables slurping freshly made noodles, always with fresh Nam Prik Pao chili jam. It's in no way fancy, but there's a reason for its popularity: super tasty food with fast and friendly service. At the next stop, taste dishes from the Isaan region in the Northeast. These dishes are designed to challenge the taste buds a little. The depth of flavor exhibited by this region's cuisine is astonishing. Next is finding some street food, whether something sweet like Sap-Bpa-Rot Thot (fried pineapple and Gluay thot) or fried banana, or something savory like a Yum Naem Khao Tord (rice ball salad with pork). Continue to a local eatery located just opposite Glai Kangwon Palace. This restaurant exclusively serves Northern Thai cuisine and there is no menu in English. True to the palace's translated name, Far From Worries, let your worries slip away as you sample two of the North's most famous dishes, Khao Soi (Chiang Mai noodles) and Sai Ua (Chiang Mai sausage). It's not so easy to find great Northern food south of Thailand, but here, the owner has been serving up amazing Northern dishes for over 20 years, and it's easy to taste why she has kept it up so long. Your final destination is another restaurant in the back streets of Hua Hin, where excellent Thai food is served in a serene garden setting. Here, your tour guide will select dishes from the Central region that you may not have tasted before.

Be warned that the atmosphere in the market is absolutely electric, bustling with hundreds of locals picking out their evening meal. If it has rained, the walkways may have puddles, adding to the fun of the experience. Spend over an hour at the market before traveling to a local eatery. Sample great dishes from Thailand's central and northern regions at an off-the-beaten-path restaurant serving up some interesting cuisine you've probably never tried, but which may become your new favorite. The next stop is at a restaurant specializing in Bplaa Phao, salt-crusted grilled fish, along with other Isaan dishes. The last stop is an area popular for its street food vendors. Here you will learn about what makes Thai street food so good and how to choose the best menu item.

While here try Yam Naem Khao Thot, a fermented pork salad with broken up crispy rice balls. Jump back on board your transportation to sample food from the northeastern region of Isaan. Discover what makes Isaan a destination for foodies and how Som Dtam is fast becoming Thailand's national dish. Try one of the many variations of the green papaya salad and pair it with Khanom Jeen, a type of fermented rice noodles. Also, try a spicy dish called Soop Nor Mai, a hot and sour warm bamboo shoot salad. Your next stop is in the back streets of Hua Hin. Here you eat some southern Thai food, which is often reminiscent of Indian spices like turmeric. Dishes include Bplaa Dook Fuu Phat Phrik Gaeng, a stir-fried crispy shredded catfish, as well as either Sa-dtor Phat Phrik Gaeng which is stir-fried stink beans with prawns. Also have the chance to try Khua Gling, dry-fried yellow pork mince curry. The last stop of this food tour is a restaurant not known to many. Its location is difficult to find for travellers and many locals also do not know of it. This family-run restaurant serves up great food from all the regions of Thailand. As with all Thai meals, you will be striving for balance, so not everything will be seriously hot, but it's all sure to be tasty.
