Meet Toa Bee
“Toa” in the Southern Thai Yawi language means
“grandma”. No she’s not that old...although she’s getting on abit! She is our Auntie but “grandma” to our kids so we we call her “Toa Bee”

So here we are. Toa Bee’ Southern specialties.

So come along and try her food or pop in to say
“As-salāmu ʿalaykum Toa Bee”
