Buaphan was born in Thailand and would provide meals home cooked meals for her children. In her late 20s, she met a young Air Force man from Tennessee. Years later, they married and she came to the United States without knowing any English. They raised their 7 children in Austin, TX.
Buaphan was always passionate about her cooking and would volunteer her time to provide food for the monks at the
temple. She would teach her grandchildren how to cook at an early age so that they too could provide their family with delicious homemade Thai cooking. She gardens her own herbs, to have the freshest ingredients in her dishes.
In 2014, Jim & Buaphan opened up their food truck - Bua Loy Thai Cuisine with the help of their family.
We hope that you enjoy our food!
Jim is fluent in Thai!
