Hailing from Bangladesh, Islam went through the hard school of the Bangkok streetfood scene and had a stint in Singapore, before arriving in Switzerland and firing up the Wok in various establishments. Armed with a keen sense for the fragility of our chilli-phobic european palate, he presents his take on the authentic cuisine of his home with the gruff demeanour of a hardened street vendor. There’s a ton of hidden humor behind that though, and once you dig into his Satay, Pad Thai or Pad Si Ew, you will be magically transported onto a shoddy plastic stool at a roadside food stall outside Chiang Mai. Every now and then some mysterious dish far from the beaten tourist tracks will appear as a special on Islam’s menu and if you ask really nicely, he will happily cater your event with all sorts of dishes based on insects.
