“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 ingredient 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 are in Trim this weekend Friday and Saturday 4.30-9. Orders taken from 3.

Prawns and vegan dishes changed to Red curry instead of yellow curry.

We are looking forward to serving you soon.

Thank you to all our customers for your support , we are very lucky to be so busy in these tough times for everyone

I am working on a lovely curry of three meats for next week it contains ( free range pork neck , Jim Ryan’s beef and chicken thigh all cooked separately in coconut milk ...and aromatics and the cooking liquors are combined with a lovely fresh curry paste , inspired by an Old 1941 Thai recipe, , I think you will love it

We are looking forward to serving you next week,

We are in Trim this evening from 4:30. And we will start taking orders from 3 P.M. we are looking forward to serving you soon

We would like to thank you all who came for food yesterday and all who wanted to order food from us. And we are really sorry to all that could not get through and could not get food from us. We wish we could serve everybody but unfortunately we can only do so much in our little kitchen. We hope ...you have a great week
