Soi No. 9 wins the big tip on Andrew Zimmern's new Food Network Show

Soi No. 9 owners Tim Vimonnimit and Mai Mitrakul won the $10,000 tip Wednesday night on Food Network’s new primetime series “Big Food Truck Tip with Andrew Zimmern.”

Zimmern visited both Soi No. 9 and El Mero Food Truck at the weekly Court Square Food Truck Thursday event.

Vimonnimit and Mitrakul serve authentic Thai street foods from their truck, Soi No. 9.  They wowed Zimmern with their popular Basil Chicken — stir-fried ground chicken seasoned with garlic, fresh chilies and Thai basil is served over jasmine rice and topped with a fried egg, and their Khoa Soy Noodles — egg noodles in a flavorful yellow curry sauce with sliced chicken.
