Originally from the United States, Mark Wiens was raised mostly in central Africa before returning to the US for university.
After graduating with a degree in Global Studies, he bought a one way ticket to Southeast Asia to eat.
Since 2009, Mark has been based in Bangkok, Thailand, researching (that means eating a lot) as much food as he can and taking photos and blogging about Thai food.
Mark is also the author of the Eating Thai Food Guide, an eBook about how and where to eat the best Thai food.
Originally from Krabi, Ying moved to Bangkok after completing school. She has been a lover of Thai food for her entire life.
Not only does she eat and know about Thai food from every region of the country, but she also loves to cook. I would have to say she’s my favorite cook in the entire world (this is Mark writing).
Yes, Ying is also my wife, and I could not explore and discover Thai food without her.
Dwight “Bangkok Fatty” Turner
Dwight is a chomping champion who originally hails from Atlanta, GA. Growing up greedy in the capital of the South, he learned to finish his plate and the leftovers on plates nearby. Dwight had a stint living in Northern California where he studied Intercultural Communication, but has been a Bangkok fatty since 2008. Dwight is semi-fluent in Thai language, but mostly so he could order like a pro and read Thai language menus.
Dwight also has a variety of Thai food experience having worked in Thai restaurants, eaten tons of traditionally prepared royal Thai food on Bangkok’s palace grounds, and regularly breaking the flimsy plastic stools at street food stalls around the city.
Dwight loves that Thai culture dictates eating all day and takes full advantage. That may be one reason many people incorrectly assume “Bangkok Fatty” is about being physically overweight. On the contrary, the name actually refers to the overweight plates of food Dwight is constantly busy photographing and consuming! Although Dwight loves Thai food, he would wrestle to the death for the right block of cheese and also thrives on complex cocktails and wine. Catch a variety of overweight plates and restaurant reviews on the Bangkok Fatty Food and Restaurant Blog.
