Like its predecessor in our Local Series – Tokyo Local – Bangkok Local follows one culinary day. Its three sections marked for Early, Mid and Late, and the entire book unites intimate food knowledge with stunning gonzo-photography.

    From the Early chapter, for example, you can whip up some Son-in-law eggs (Khai luk kheuy), Fried taro cake (Khanom peuak tod), Fried bananas (Gluay tod) or Sweet mung bean dumplings (Khanom tua paep). And that’s just the very beginning of your day.

    It’s high time you tried Thai.
