24 Gawk-Worthy Photos from July’s Big Bite Bangkok Feasting Festival

By Dwight Turner Bangkok


This past Sunday we hosted the biggest Big Bite yet!

Big thank you to all of the sponsors, vendors, volunteers and of course all 300+ food lovers who crowded in for an indulgent Sunday afternoon at Maduzi Hotel.

Big Bite Bangkok - July 2013

If you missed all the announcements or you’re not living in Bangkok, Big Bite Bangkok is the market series we’ve been putting on since last year.

You can read more about the event on our Big Bite Page, but basically the event is part food festival, part tasting party, and part charity fundraiser.

VM Thai Tea

Bottoms up on this cinnamon Thai tea, yum!

Big Bite Montage

Food, fun, and charity!

Beervana Craft Beers

People show up mid sunday because they hungry, hungover, hunting hard to find foods or all of the above!

Here’s the full list of awesome food and drink makers who participated:

Big Bite Bangkok - July 2013

Everyone expects to be fed well and after having their fill of beer, wine, and cocktails at the event, to have friendly encounters with other mustard stained and crump covered gourmands.

What people don’t expect is a laid back, pop up market that raises more than $1000 for charity with each brief, three hour occurrence.

ETF Street Food

Anyone recognize this street vendor? All the profit from the sales of these Thai dishes were donated to charity.

Big Bite Kids

Handing with friends and a big group of our kids whose families will receive support from funds raised at the event!

UP Cheese Grits

Southern Thai food was represented, so how about some southernfied American food? Urban Pantry hooked it up with these garlic grits!

In the latest incarnation we had well over 300 foodies in place and raised double what we normally raise for my volunteer charity In Search of Sanuk (with the extra help of our sponsors and vendors).

You can’t pack more WIN into a smaller space! Now here’s some photos for you to gawk at!

ETF Charity Stand

For the first time ever we had a stand for Eating Thai Food with Mark and his wife serving some awesome dishes and helping raise money!

Jakjai Specialty Coffee

Social business and specialty coffee maker Jakjai was on board serving freshly brewed coffee and letting people taste their cold brew.

Jenny's WC Cakes

Newcomer Jenny’s Delicious Whipping Cream Cakes making new fans!

Mess Hall Stand

Mess Hall‘s croquettes and pork belly buns generously raised the most for charity, donating over $300!

Maison Jean Philippe

Artisan bread and pastries from Maison Jean Philippe who showed up with one giant, almost 8kg loaf to hack into pieces for people.

Olives & More

Olives & More had their olives ready for tasters and some fun options like their stuffed peppers and slow roasted plum tomatoes.

Sloane's Sausages

Sloane’s grill is fired up and artisan sausages were being thrown in buns. There was also some great smoked ham that I hope you didn’t miss!

Adam's Organic Veggies

Cucumber water, spicy romaine lettuce wraps that disappeared and a ton of fresh veggies from Adam’s Organic.


Limited edition Lamai Thai Rum was mixing cocktails like their Lamai-hito and giving samples of Thai white rum.

Tribeca Waffle Pour

Expat traffic jam of people waiting in line for Tribeca’s freshly made chicken and waffles.

VM Vermicelli

Diving head first into a bowl of Vietnamese & More’s vermicelli noodle salad.

Twist & Spirulina

Twist’s cooling fresh juices were had the extra option of being paired with Skyline’s spirulina for an extra green health boost.


New York Style hotdogs by Superbdog made some people crazy when they sold out early!

Alchemist Samples

The Alchemist bar showed up and dished out over 600 shots and plenty of full sized cocktails!

Urban Pantry Southernfied

Also souled-out and sold out for obvious reasons were Urban Pantry’s garlic cheese grits topped with blackened shrimp, jalapeño corn bread, and biscuits and gravy!

Appia Porchetta

Get in line! Back with reinforcements and was the rotisserie roasted, Roman style porchetta from Appia who also made a generous donation from what they sold!

Another super big thanks goes to our sponsor Monsoon Valley Wines who were only hand doing a tasting with of their award winning wines and answering people’s questions about pairing their wines with food.

I didn’t get to try enough of their wines during the event so I purchased a bottle of their sparkling Rosé wine and enjoyed it while I was recovering from the event.

Finally, big props to my volunteer photographers Lillian Suwanrumpha and Ramon Toralba for these awesome photos and thanks to everyone who came!
