Bangkok Peppers, the popular Thai Restaurant with locations in Fenton and Grand Blanc is going on the road. Adam Rose, owner of Bangkok Peppers Too in Fenton just announced a new addition to their restaurant business. The Bangkok Peppers Food Trailer will be appearing at events around the Genesee County. Customers that love tasty Thai Cuisine will now be able to enjoy some of their favorites at area events.
Already booked for the Genesee County Fair, Adam is also prepping for the Fenton Art Walk and Taste in Fenton this summer. In addition to serving their current clientele, Adam envisions the venture as an opportunity to introduce new customers to their popular dishes. Adam emphasizes the ability to tell people their story. “We are a family owned company that started in Grand Blanc in 2006. In March of 2011, we expanded by opening our second location in Fenton. Our goal with the trailer is to encourage people to sample something new, give them a chance to try our unique tastes. The exposure to our products will draw new clients into our restaurants.”
Food Trailer vs. Food Truck
The Rose family opted to make the mobile vehicle a trailer instead of a food truck. The trailer sets lower to the ground making it easier for customers to get their food. The trailer holds more food and we tow it with a properly equipped pick-up truck. At 24 feet long the unit has three woks, two deep fryers, refrigerators and all the food prep equipment to prepare any dish. While capable of cooking anything on their current menu, the mobile unit will concentrate on preparing quick grab and go meals.
The popular fare will include Spring Rolls, Shrimp Rolls, Deep Fried Dumplings, and dishes like Pad Thai. A plate with thin rice noodle, stir-fried with eggs, rice, bean sprouts, and green onions. You order Pad Thai with your choice of meat, chicken is a favorite pick. And it’s topped with fresh ground peanuts. Drunken Noodles is another much-requested treat. Flat rice noodles, egg, bell peppers, bean sprouts, and green onion cooked with basil and wine.
