Spicy Thai food-loving blogger and YouTube star Mark Wiens is set to enter the restaurant business with an opening called Phed Mark.
Wiens, who is behind the Migrationology
and Eating Thai Food
websites, has been professionally documenting his love of food and travel worldwide since 2009 and has accumulated over 770, 000 followers on Instagram alone and over 4 million subscribers on his YouTube channel.
He is well known for videoing and editing all of his food adventures and has also published an ebook, Eating Thai Food Guide
. He now calls Bangkok home with his wife.
Full details remain under wraps, but a new Instagram account suggests the restaurant will be located near BTS Ekkamai station and specialize in pad kaprao (Thai basil stir fry). We have a feeling the food will be spicy. Phed Mark is expected to open in the next couple of months.
Further IG snooping shows that the restaurant will be a collaboration with fellow food blogger sensation Kittidech Vimolratana, better known as Itan, actor/celeb Pongtap Anurat and Iron Chef Thailand winner Gigg Kamol.
