After spending more than three
decades cooking in an unassum-
ing outdoor kitchen, a wok-wield-
ing, goggles-wearing Thai chef has
been propelled to international
culinary stardom by having her
restaurant awarded a Michelin
Supinya Jansuta, better known
as "Jay Fai," is among 17 Bang-
kok-based chefs whose venues
received the coveted honour from
Michelin in a guidebook released
last month---its irst foray into the
Jay Fai, as her restaurant is also
known, is often featured in for-
eign travel guides but is mostly
shunned by Thais for its high
prices of what is generally consid-
ered cheap local food.
But a closer examination of the
72-year-old chef 's dishes reveals
an abundance of fresh seafood
and prime ingredients.
"The No 1 thing with Jay Fai is
people say it's too expensive,"
said Oliver Irvine, editor of the
English-language weekly BK Mag-
azine, which regularly critiques
Bangkok's food scene. "This is an
old classic hole-in-the wall place
which charges 800 1,000 baht
(US$24 31) for its famous crab
omelet, which is nowhere near
street-food prices. But when you
cut that thing open, it's literally
bursting with the freshest crab in
the whole city."
Jay Fai is the only restaurant in
the Bangkok guide listed under
the "street food" classi ication to
receive a star.
"Jay Fai is a place that both taxi
drivers and foodies wax lyrical
about and it's easy to see why,"
the Michelin guidebook says of the
Bangkok is renowned for its
street food, with cart-wielding
vendors selling everything from
Thailand's signature noodles to
spicy tom yum goong soup.
The stalls, with their metal
folding tables and rickety plas-
tic stools, serve as a gastronomic
go-to for budget-conscious locals
and adventurous tourists alike.
In recent months, however, of i-
cials in the military-ruled country
who see street food as an illegal
nuisance have warned hawkers
to clear out of some of the city's
While Jay Fai is one of 14 Bang-
kok restaurants to receive a single
star, none got three stars, the high-
est Michelin honour. Three were
awarded two stars---the Indian res-

Following the lead of several
other Asian nations, Thailand's
government earmarked $4.1 mil-

Michelin says the Bangkok guide
was "solely, independently and
anonymously" produced by its
team of critics.
Jay Fai said she was happy about
receiving the Michelin honour, but
questioned why it came so late in
"I've been cooking for 30 to 40
years, so I don't know why I've
only just got it," she said. "I'm
happy that they're starting to rec-

"I hope more Thai people will
win the award next year, and they
don't just give it to Jay Fai again,"

hours, David Goldman, a tourist

"The food was really fresh. It

"The only advice I have for anyone
coming here is bring a book" given
the long wait, he added.
