A Chef's guide: Bangkok Backstreet Food Walking Tour

28 reviews

  • 4 hours in total

  • All tasting samples included

  • Meet up in Yaowarat

What To Expect

This tour is designed for adventurous eaters with an interest in discovering the food locals eat. It's a walking tour, but the pace is gentle, the terrain flat and there are plenty of rest (eating) stops along the way.


Don't leave the fate of your taste buds to chance… go straight for Bangkok's culinary jugular. Join Chef Nutth on his epic nightly food feast around the city's maze of alleys to taste hidden street eats you'd never find alone. Trust us, the Pad Thai on Khao San Road is nothing to write home about. Gorge on lemongrass infused mussels, rich peanut satay with grilled coconut chicken and ajat relish, the best Thai curry in Bangkok, and over a dozen more lip-smackingly good things.


Kicking off as the afternoon cools, eat your way through the labyrinth of backstreets, ending on a sugary high along the main strip of Yaowarat Road in all its neon glory.
*Sorry veggies, this one isn't for you.
*Street food vendors take time off too, so we can't promise every tour will be the same, but fear not, the night will always be packed with good stuff.

Itinerary

Meeting point

Yaowarat's Chinatown Gate near Hua Lamphong MRT station. It's easy to reach and we'll send you more details and address. Your guide will be wearing A Chef's Tour t-shirt.

Sample menu

  • Chinese cold black herbal tea. A refreshing start to whet your appetite.
  • Old style steamed shrimp noodles topped with tender pork, squid, and black bean sauce.
  • Pan fried parcels stuffed with Chinese green chives covered in nam jim sauce.
  • Grilled Coconut chicken skewers served with rich peanut satay sauce and tangy ajat cucumber relish.
  • Pennywort juice - an herbal drink that's great for digestion.
  • Seasonal Asian fruit like rambutans, mangosteens, and longan.
  • 'Workers' noodles. Quite possibly the simplest and best noodle soup you'll ever eat.
  • Crispy omelet laden with sweet Thai oysters. Nothing is quite as indulgent.
  • Meat-on-a-stick grilled over flames with five spicy dipping sauces.
  • Simply the best Thai curry in Bangkok.
  • Chrysanthemum tea served outside a traditional Yaowarat townhouse.
  • Chinese 'cookie' filled with salted yellow bean. The perfect accompaniment to iced tea.
  • Steamed Shanghai-style pork wontons or what we call little bundles of meaty joy.
  • Mussels steamed in lemongrass and Thai basil.
  • Spicy tom yum soup with prawns and squid.
  • Classic mango and sticky rice. If this doesn't float your Thai boat, you're on the wrong planet.
  • Michelin recommended Thai doughnuts covered in indulgent pandan leaf custard.

Everyone on the tour was a foodie and we all LOVED it! We tasted the best som tum I had in Thailand and I've dreamt about those donuts. All of the food was really amazing though. Bring good walking shoes since walking is the mode of transportation. That being said Chinatown is absolutely worth seeing anyway and the walking probably helped settle... Read more

Wow. Just can't say enough about the quality of this food tour. From the delicious foods to the atmospheres that you enjoy the eats in: A Chefs Tour is worth every dollar you spend. They take you around Yaowarat Road in Chinatown, a location worthy of visiting for the scenery alone. You'll follow your knowledgeable guide down dark alleys and into... Read more

This was a lovely way to spend an afternoon in Bangkok. Having been to this city many times I have never done a tour like this and it has opened my eyes and my belly to the tastes and different "street" food available, if you know where to look.

Still have question?

How do I book on Inspitrip?

For most experiences on Inspitrip, there are two options: Small Group and Private tour. For both options, you can chat with your local guide and other people in your group even before the trip takes place.
  • Small group tour: operates with a maximum number of people. If you like to make new friends, this is a great option. You would pay for the trip to confirm your slot, then join a chat group with your local guide as well as fellow travel buddies, everything would be on Inspitrip. Get to know them!
  • Private tour: maximizes your privacy and allows you to freely customize the itinerary. First, request to communicate any specific needs you may have, wait a couple minutes for these requests to be confirmed, and then you can proceed to payment.

What is the cancellation and refund policy?

Cancellation is free if you cancel up to 48 hours before the trip date. We believe that this is the fairest way to ensure that both our travelers and local guides are happy.

Does the Small Group option still operate if there are less than the maximum number of people signed up?

Yes, even if you are the only person who signs up for the trip on a given date, the tour will still take place.

My question is not listed here. What should I do?

Check our Frequently Asked Questions page or you can also email us at team@inspitrip.com. We are happy to help!
