This food tour is much more than just another food tour!
From the moment I expressed interest in a Feast Thailand tour, the dynamic Leigh who runs things kept in contact telling me which options were available and when. She recommended a tour to suit my likes and previous culinary experiences in Hua Hin. WhatsApp exchanges with her are rapid and efficient.
“Cream” was our guide. To call her a guide is somewhat of an understatement. Yes, she guides and explains extremely well in near perfect English, but she is also a consummate entertainer! Her jokes were spontaneous, funny and appropriate. She is a star!
Being someone who tends to dine late, I worried about the 16:30 start. In fact, there is a short drive out to the first stop so, although we started a little earlier than what I am used to, it worked out well.
The first stop is a market where one sees local produce and tries various fruits and cooked delicacies – the taste bud titillation starts from the first mouthful.
Next, there are two restaurants where the organoleptic stimulation goes into overdrive and all the while one is drip fed information about the ingredients and traditions. Cream can judge her audience and knows how much info to give.
The final stop is a food stall in town for a dessert.
Don’t ask me which was my favourite dish: they were ALL so good! Leigh has certainly done her homework.
If I could give this tour 6 stars, I would!
Next time I am in Hua Hin, I will certainly use Feast Thailand again for more taste sensations.
One final word of advice: to allow yourself the opportunity of enjoying the tour to the full, have breakfast and skip lunch completely! 😉
