Beyond Food

A JOURNEY THROUGH HIDDEN DIMENSIONS OF STREET FOOD

TO BE LAUNCHED IN 2019

WHAT’S BYE BYE CHINATOWN?

Beyond Food is a unique food tour designed to not only try delicious Thai food but to take a deeper look into the role of street food and the informal economy in the functioning of the city. We will travel on foot and by all modes of transport to look at the past, present and future of street food in diverse off the beaten track neighborhoods. In light of the policy to ban street vending in Bangkok we aim to shift the focus away from the food itself toward the cultural-, economical and social dimensions impacted through such policy. The journey leads from the city’s commercial markets to residential working class neighborhoods. From popular areas that are scheduled to be cleared to the communities where vendors live with their families. From the micro scale to Bangkok’s billion dollar iconic attractions. This experience is designed to view the city not only through the eyes of a foodie but also through the eyes of a U.N.worker and social anthropologist. Gain insights and reflect and taste the future of food in the world’s capital of street food.
