While it was not always the case, the Haarlemmerstraat is now a bustling street brimming with an array of interesting shops, including some of the city’s finest food addresses. One of those not-to-be-missed culinary locations is Thai & Co., a restaurant that proudly exemplifies Thailand’s mouth-wateringly vibrant cuisine. When owner Gina Ramos purchased and renovated the location that would become Thai & Co. in 2001, the Haarlemmerstraat was yet to become the popular street it is today. Luckily, that all changed: “During the last decade, the Haarlemmerstraat has become hip, with many trendy shops and delicatessens opening their doors,” says Ramos.
