Foodie Holiday is a series that features food recommendations by chefs and personalities from their holidays abroad.
Tristin Farmer has been to Bangkok, Thailand three times just last year. He planned his most recent trip there to dive into the food scene and meet up with chef friends. He’s close to several chefs there including Le Du’s Thitid ‘Ton’ Tassanakajohn, Potong’s Pichaya ‘Pam’ Utharntharm, and Mathias and Thomas Suhring.
The executive chef of three-Michelin-starred Restaurant Zen enjoyed a range of casual fare and fine dining meals as well as visited a food market in Chinatown. According to Tristin, he is obsessed with trying different experiences, and particularly loves super spicy Thai food.
He shares with us some of his favourite gourmet picks in the capital of The Land of Smiles.
