With a dream to bring delicious Southeast Asian cuisine to the Tacoma community, husband and wife duo Vathunyu Nanakornphanom and Bouy Ngoy, better known as Vat and Bouy, opened up Indo Street Eatery. Partnering with Executive Chef Yu Nana to create a menu inspired from his days spent as a child on the streets of Bangkok where he grew up eating various comfort foods from street vendors. Local patrons rave about Indo food that’s always served fresh and delicious.

As with many restaurants, Indo was forced to close during the beginning of the pandemic. But Vat and Bouy and the Indo team worked hard to reopen with safety measures in place including online ordering to make sure that they could still serve up cuisine the community has come to know and love.

Vat and Bouy are known throughout the community for their generosity and community support so when Columbia Bank invited them to participate in the Pass It On Project, they were excited to get involved. That is why Indo Street Eatery is providing meals to local families, and Columbia Bank is paying the bill. “We are passionate about supporting our community especially kids and families. With Columbia Bank’s support we are passing on meals to local families through organizations like the Boys & Girls Club of Tacoma, “ says Vat.
