Meet Suf

Growing up in a close-knit family of cooks, Suf has helped his parents cook and sell food to the neighbors for years - especially desserts - in one of the oldest Muslim communities in Bangkok. The family’s love for cooking descended from Suf’s grandmother and his mother still sells food cooked at home using the same family recipes.

These days, Suf if a successful freelance designer but he loves to cook and entertain at home with his family in their charming Thai community of temples and mosques lining one of Bangkok’s few remaining canals.

What to expect

Please note menu might vary. If there are particular dishes you are interested in trying, please include your request in the booking form.

In-home meal: (1-4 guests) Some of Suf's favorite recipes to share with Traveling Spoon guests include tom yum kung, a classic spicy shrimp soup (galangal, lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves, lime juice, chilies, mushroom, coconut milk, and cilantro), stir-fried chicken with cashew nuts (sweet peppers, onion, garlic, and cilantro root), and deep fried spring rolls (glass noodles, carrot, mushroom, cabbage, sweet basil, and cucumber).

Cooking experience: (1-4 guests) Arrive at Suf's home where you’ll be warmly welcomed by his family and offered a refreshing drink of Thai herbs. Once you’re settled in, grab a spoon and take part in the action as Suf and his mother treat you to a wonderful hands-on cooking experience.

Market visit: (1-4 guests) At the BTS On-nut station, Suf will greet you and take you by taxi to Aiam Sombat market, about 10 minutes away. He’ll show you how to select the best ingredients for the dishes you’ll soon be preparing. After browsing the aisles, Suf will lead you along a small, picturesque footpath to his home.

Notes: Suf's family is Muslim and they serve Halal food.

    You can cancel your experience 48 hours or more before your experience date and receive a full refund. To request a cancellation once you have made a booking simply log in and click the "Request Cancellation" link from the bottom of your booking. Your refund will be processed immediately (note it can take up to 10 business days for this refund to post to your credit card statement). Please note that for cancellations within 48 hours of your experience we unfortunately cannot offer a refund; this is because our hosts typically purchase food and begin their preparations up to 48 hours before the experience.

    Most of our hosts are able to accommodate dietary restrictions and allergies, including vegetarian and gluten free options. For vegetarian travelers, we have an icon on each host profile to indicate whether that host can also offer a fully vegetarian menu. There is a section in the booking form to note any allergies or dietary restrictions which will be sent directly to your host.

    Once you request a booking you can message your host directly to ask any specific questions. Your messages will be emailed directly to the host and any responses will be forwarded to your email and can also be seen on the Traveling Spoon website.

    Your host's detailed contact information, including their phone number, address, and direction notes, will all be provided immediately upon successful confirmation of your experience (after your hosts accepts your booking and your credit card is successfully processed).

    All prices are noted as per person prices unless otherwise specified (typically transportation is charged on a per car basis, but otherwise all prices are per person).

    Some hosts offer alcohol as an optional add-on for travelers who are of legal drinking age. Pricing for alcohol is visible on the host profile page and includes one to two glasses of wine, beer or local alcohol.

    Some hosts offer transportation as an optional add-on for travelers. Typically this is round trip transportation with pick up and drop off at your hotel. Pricing is quoted per car. Specific instructions for transportation will be provided in your confirmation details when your booking is confirmed.

    Many of our hosts accommodate solo travelers. You can see if a host accepts solo travelers by looking at the traveler range found next to the experience descriptions on the host profile (indicated by the numbers in parentheses next to "In-home meal", "Cooking experience" and "Market visit").

    Your safety and security are our top priority. To ensure this, Traveling Spoon personally vets 100% of all hosts, including an in-person host visit, to ensure each host and experience meets our strict quality requirements.
