Feast Your Senses at Mad Face Food Week April 28-30

Mad Face Food Week

Take a break from the old routine and head to Phra Khanong, or specifically Sansiri Backyard, and tantalize your taste buds at Mad Face Food Week

The 2023 edition of the three-day annual street food extravaganza at Sansiri’s T77 Community celebrates all that is good about Thai culture, which to me and you means fun, fun and more fun!

Mad Face Food Week kicks off on April 28 and runs through April 30, from 3-11 p.m. daily. It is the perfect excuse to spice up your life with some delicious Thai culture.

Local chefs are under the spotlight as they aim to show off their talents, providing guests with a smorgasbord of sumptuous snacks, from old Thai favorites to rare delights not often found at your average street-side cafe.

But don’t just take our word for it, with Mad Face Food Week organizers demanding you “come hungry” and “step out of your comfort zone and try something you’ve never had before,” (which sounds a lot better coming from a food festival than a ladyboy bar), promising an event “where chefs cut loose, create what they want, and have a dance-off with their diners in a laid back environment.” 

Sanook at Mad Face Food Week

Make of that what you will, but Mad Face Food Week could provide a much-needed injection of sanook after a tediously hot month under a permanent blanket of smog, especially for those who’ve spent the last few days under voluntary lockdown due to the wet madness that is Songkran.

Mad Face Food Week brings together food lovers, chefs and vendors from across Thailand to celebrate food, lifestyle and culture. The annual event is proving popular and attracts locals and expats alike, along with tourists and travelers.

More than 100 stalls are expected to be cooking up at the event, offering a variety of mouthwatering street food delights and mixing a menu of thirst-quenching drinks, Mad Face Food Week is the perfect place to let loose and have fun. 

And if you’re worried about parking, or your furry friends, fear not! The festival has parking available and is even pet-friendly. With an entry price of just 150 baht and children under 13 admitted free, what is there to worry about?

Don’t miss out on this exciting celebration of Thai food, lifestyle and culture. Head to their website for more information and the full program of weekend events, and prepare to stimulate your senses at Sansiri Backyard.
