The “Akha” people immigrated and became citizens of Thailand in the early 1900’s through China, Laos and Myanmar.
There are now 80,000 Akha people living in small villages in the mountains of Thailand. Akha people have their own traditions, culture and beliefs, different from the rest of Thailand, as many hill tribes do.
Thai Akha Kitchen is run by Akha people who were born and raised in Thailand. We love Thai food just as much as you!
So we would like to invite you to experience Akha food and Akha culture.
Give us a chance to tell you our story.
Our small culture will sooner or later cease to exist and will become forgotten, so this is our chance to pass down our traditions and cooking styles to the world in hope that at least some parts of it will live through people who continue to use our techniques.
Akha Food is totally different from Thai Food and is much healthier and fresher.
Akha people have a saying: “There are only three things in jungle that you can’t eat, and nobody knows what they are”.
In other words, we haven’t found anything that’s not edible yet!
