I’m Restaurant Marketing Consultant, My base is Shanghai but after celebrating my 30s birthday in Bangkok, I decided to start my own Bangkok career. Because I love the city and the work I’m doing here.
Some nine years ago, I started my first job at Shanghai Crowne Hotel as the Sales & Marketing Coordinator, but not long after I realized that I had more passion for F&B. I love delicious food, and decided to try out as many good restaurants worldwide as possible. I also discovered the joy of introducing people to share the same dining experience. Before working for myself as a restaurant marketing consultant, I mainly worked for the some international restaurants in Shanghai.
Yes, I am a real foodie but also a travel addict. Almost every month I travel overseas – to America, Europe or South Asia. I have also helped some restaurants in Europe to attract more Chinese customers. Now it’s time for Bangkok.
For now I work for Treasure Beef Shabu at RCA and Chubby Crayfish Sichuan Restaurant at The Up Rama 3, we serve around 20 kinds of beef there, 6 kinds of shabu soup including traditional and spicy, also we serve 6 kinds of Crayfish dishes there.
Chubby Crayfish Sichuan Restaurant at The Up Rama 3, it is the only crayfish restaurant in Bangkok, it brings 16 flavors of crayfish, MaLa (Spicy) is one of the most popular. But not only Crayfish, Chubby also serve traditional Sichuan food and some traditional non spicy Chinese food. Probably in March , we will open anther Chubby Crayfish Sichuan Restaurant at Huai Khwang area, and more in the future.
Crayfish is China's favorite dish, according to a report by the China Cuisine Association. Crayfish is called "little lobster" in Chinese, and was the most popular based on a list of the top 10 most-ordered dishes on Chinese consumer app Dianping. It appeals to the culture of the ‘Late Dinner’, usually referred to as supper in the West. The dish is believed to help improve social interaction, with customers wearing gloves to peel the crayfish to enjoy this freshwater delicacy.
If you are in China and ask a local for a late night food suggestion, the first recommended course will be crayfish. Shanghai does not eat much spicy food, but when they pass a crawfish restaurant, they have to try really hard to stop themselves from drooling.
One day, I hope we also can find crayfish everywhere in Thailand, not only at Treasure and Chubby.
