About us

Hey Foodies! 

Welcome to Foodies Official Asia. The official parent brand of “Foodies OFFICIAL” online communities across social media and website platforms in Asia. 


This website was launched by the Team who began Desperately Seeking – Bangkok (DSBKK) in 2012, and Bangkok Foodies OFFICIAL  2014 in and BangkokFoodies.com in 2017. The founder, a well known food writer in Bangkok who runs her own gastronomy-based marketing consulting company decided to extend the “Foodies OFFICIAL” communities into Asia’s region. 

The creation of the website was Inspired by her work and media trips to different cities in Asia. Here she had a chance to taste the cuisine at famous restaurants by up-and-coming and award-winning chefs, and was further inspired by the incredible local food and culture. These adventures led to the idea of bridging the foodies gap between the Asian cities.
