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

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: (1-3 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.

FAQ

    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 card will not be charged until your host accepts your booking. Typically hosts respond to bookings within 72 hours. In the event your host is unavailable on your selected date and your host rejects your booking your credit card will not be charged.

    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). This information will be emailed to you to the email address you used to sign up, and will also be visible on your Traveling Spoon profile.

    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.

    Hosts typically respond to booking inquiries within 72 hours. If for some reason you have not heard from your host or if you have any questions you can always contact us at reservations@travelingspoon.com.
