As our excursion to Thailand is drawing to a close and Women’s History Month begins, we would like to introduce you to Amphai Kanawong, a restauranteur and entrepreneur from Northern Thailand. She owns Northern Thai Food Club, a restaurant which features regional cuisine from the area of Thailand she’s from.

This casual 12 seat restaurant is listed in the 2019 Los Angeles Times 101 Best Restaurants Guide and has received numerous accolades from food aficionados.

This industrious woman and women like her are opening restaurants in strip malls all over the city to share their culinary talents. While she may struggle with speaking English, her grace, her generosity and spirit is something we can all learn from.

In Peace-

Jan and Jen
