So much food!! Fabulous small group and Neera from Lost Plate Food Tours took us by tuk tuk to at least 5 different restaurants starting in the oldest, most basic street food vendor and ending in a modern cocktail bar. We sampled a huge array of local dishes including red curry soup, cheese fish, frog and banana sausages with as much free beer and water as you wanted. This is a great way to eat locally especially as my husband has a peanut allergy and we are always nervous about eating locally because of this. Neera called ahead to eat place to ensure all dietary needs were met (our group also included a vegetarian and a lady who is pregnant) and there were never any issues. A great fun night with good food and great company!
