Meet Poo

Poo remembers growing up watching her mother prepare every element of a meal by hand for her food vendor business. Without using modern kitchen tools, her mother would grind spices and chilies by hand, pound ingredients in a mortar and pestle, and squeeze fresh coconut milk. Her mother never taught her how to cook, rather Poo learned from her own observations and experimentations.

When Poo married her husband, they started their own business. When it wasn’t as successful as they had planned, Poo started to think about other business options that allowed her passion for cooking. She started selling her homemade dishes to busy office workers who missed the taste of home-cooked food. Now a successful food vendor herself, Poo starts selling her dishes at 5am and is always sold out by 9am. Poo says she can cook any kind of Thai food and regularly changes her menu to keep both herself and her customers interested.

Poo speaks limited English so her daughter Nam will join you to help translate.

What to expect

In-home meal: (1-3 guests) Nam will pick you up at the Punnawithi BTS station and drive you 10 minutes to their home. Once you arrive at their modern townhouse, you will be welcomed to their table where you will sample Poo’s flavorful and eclectic Thai food. Your menu may include dishes such as fried fish with crispy garlic and fish sauce, gaeng kiewwan gung (green curry with shrimp), gung ob wunsen (glass noodles with roasted shrimp and herbs), or Poo's signature fried chicken wings served in a sweet and spicy sauce. Share your meal along with conversation about Thai cuisine and culture with this warm and hospitable family.
