Meet the Author

Simon Ostheimer grew up in colonial Hong Kong as the son of a British civil servant and has always felt more at home in Asia than anywhere else—exploring the streets of Saigon, wandering through the museums of Singapore, playing on the beaches of Boracay, and eating char kway teow at the food stalls of Penang during family holidays. This probably explains why, after an abortive attempt at life in the U.K., he later became an Asia-roaming editor and writer, spending several years working at magazines in China (Shanghai, Beijing, and Hong Kong) before trying Kuala Lumpur and then Bangkok. When he is not island-hopping across the region, his greatest passion is trying new Asian street food—he feels that the multicultural mix of people found across the continent makes for the most enjoyable cuisines in the world.
