“We provide Fresh Thai Street food using the best of Irish and Thai produce available”

Once Upon A Thai is a food truck serving fresh, authentic Thai food using Irish and Thai ingredients where possible. The Free Range pork and beef we use is from Jim Ryan’s farm in Ballinlough, Kells, Co. Meath.

We also work closely with a number of producers and food service companies that, over the years of working in the hospitality industry, I have established a great relationship with and they understand what I expect when I order produce from them. We are based in Trim, Co.Meath

Our Story

I have been working as a chef in professional kitchens in Ireland, England and Australia for the past 18 years. I first visited Thailand in 2003 and instantly fell in love with Thai food, people and their culture.

I then visited Thailand every year and in 2011 I met my future wife Auan who had worked in some of the best 5 stars Hotels in Thailand and is an amazing cook and shares my passion for Thai food.

We both noticed that we could not find anywhere to eat in Ireland that delivered the authentic Thai street food flavour and after doing a lot of research we decided to start a food truck that gave our customers genuinely authentic Thai Street food.


We have very limited amount of our Thai - Muslim style Duck Korma with potatoes , fried shallots and jasmine rice €15
It’s not spicy but has lots of spices in it , pictured below is the spice list in our own homemade Garam masala , one of the spices in our final recipe,

Dear valued customers we are closed this weekend and will be back in Trim on Friday 5th November. Hope you all have a great weekend

    Absolutely great food, always a limited menu ... concentrating on quality and taste instead. Maybe the best food truck you'll encounter in Ireland.
