Oliver SwanBangkok, Jan 2018 Hong Kong, Feb 2018
I just returned from two back to back tours, Bangkok and Hong Kong. There aren't enough superlatives to convey the entire experience. First-Dudi is truly passionate about food and travel- it is his life. He structures these "adventures" (the word tour doesn't do it justice) as he travels. It happens to be exactly how I like to travel. I felt privileged to have the opportunity to accompany him and his friends on these adventures. It's not a business. Anyone can go to a restaurants. Dudi truly curates unique culinary experiences that simply wouldn't be possible without him and really don't otherwise exist. He has spent years building the relationships and traveling the world many times over many meals that make these experiences possible. Example- in Hong Kong- we spent an afternoon with the first 3 starred Chinese Chef in the world (Chef Tak of Lung King Heen @ Four Seasons) as he walked us through the neighborhood where he grew up and took us to the hole-in-the-wall restaurants he loves. It was the first time in the history of the hotel that they arranged for the Chef to take anyone outside the restaurant. I had similar absolutely priceless experiences in Bangkok. Dudi opens doors that no one else can; he has the golden key that unlocks unforgettable experiences. Each experience is literally unforgettable. He also partners with some of the most amazing people in the world (Hanuman and introduces amazing local foodies (Firm, PupPup, and Abel to mention a few). He is also a match-maker. He puts together some of the finest foodies in the world on these adventures. We met as strangers, became friends, and really left as family. We have kept in touch after the trips and coordinate together to plan future trips with Dudi. It's also truly a global group. I now have friends that I look forward to visiting throughout the world and look forward to seeing on other trips with Dudi. The relationships truly transcend the food. Thank You Dudi for making it all possible!
