Our parents are Thai chefs and cooks. Growing up, they made sure that we understood and appreciated basic Thai cooking to elevated “Royal” cuisine, and everything in between. We ate our Grandmother’s Thai food, our parent’s interpretation, and tasted street vendor’s version. We have explored New York City’s myriad Thai restaurants; we’ve tasted the food, listened to the stories and hope to help communicate Thailand’s cultural impressions and influences in the clearest way possible.
Finding Thai food in NYC is easy. Learning the names of dishes and ingredients is not. At Thaithentic, our goal is for you to become an informed Thai eater. We work with Thai restaurants to understand the regional differences in their cooking so that we can be your guides, and post interesting, easily digestible articles and videos with the hopes that you try something new. The best way to understand Thai cuisine is to taste it so we strive to work with innovative, expert Thai chefs who showcase real Thai cooking and flavors.
So if you love Thai food and Thai people come and join our culinary adventure through the tasty, sometimes sweet, sometimes sour, salty, spicy Thai food scene. And along the way, learn about our beautiful culture.
