JAY FAI PRATU PHEE


Roadside hawker Supinya Junsuta, better known as Jay Fa…

Long before Jay Fai gained international fame for becoming Bangkok’s first street food stall to be awarded a Michelin star in 2018, the eatery was already revered by local foodies for its wok-fried seafood dishes, meticulously turned out by sole chef and owner, 73-year-old Supinya Junsuta.

Junsuta, nicknamed Jay Fai for which the restaurant is named after, oversees the roaring charcoal-fired stoves daily, clad in her trademark black apron, beanie and ski goggles to protect her eyes from long hours in front of the intense heat. She started her roadside eatery in the 1980s and made a name for herself by procuring very high-quality seafood and transforming the ingredients into soulful dishes kissed with the smoky breath of her woks.

Since receiving a Michelin star in the inaugural MICHELIN Guide Bangkok 2018 and again in 2019, a lot has changed for the humble eatery now under the glare of the international media spotlight. Jay Fai has been catapulted onto the world stage, participating in the 6th MAD Symposium in Copenhagen in 2018 at the behest of Noma’s Rene Redzepi and working with Thai Airways to create menus for its First and Business class passengers.

With the influx of foreign guests, Jay Fai’s English-speaking daughter Yuwadee Junsuta has had to leave her career to work full-time at the restaurant. There, she manages the crowds, takes the orders and helps her mother finish the stall’s famed crab omelette in a smaller wok to fluffy golden perfection.
