Raan Jay Fai

Bangkok, Thailand

Jay Fai is the nickname of local cooking legend Supinya Junsuta – who, in her 70s, became the first street food chef to attain a Michelin star. Cue a surge of interest in her shophouse restaurant that has been in business for more than 40 years. Wearing trademark heat-protection goggles, Jay Fai preps and cooks each dish one by one over flaming charcoal heat, with each portion attaining the same crispy, smoky quality. These premium street eats (don’t miss the famous crab omelette) command a higher price than are usually expected from Bangkok’s side-of-the-road stalls, but that hasn’t put off the legion of fans.
