It all started at various food truck festivals, serving up food from a small Vespa car. “My partner Kay worked at the most famous Thai restaurant in the Netherlands for ten years, but we wanted to do something different. Something of our own,” explains owner Richard Derks. With that in mind, they began driving around in their Vespa car with a barbecue in the back. “We sold ‘real’ food, the food that we liked ourselves. Papaya salad, chicken satay and homemade sauces. It was like the flavours of Bangkok in a car.” Eventually they decided it was time for a proper location; a real restaurant. But it could not be just anywhere.
