The Bangkok Roti Lady, also known as Puy the Roti Lady or Benjawan Kaewsaen, is a street food vendor in Sala Deang, Bangkok who became notably popularized on YouTube in late 2022 throughout early 2023 after several food-related YouTube channels posted videos of her making roti at her cart outside of Silom MRT Station. Her specialty is a banana pancake roti. In January 2023, Puy shared that she was being forced out of her location and couldn't afford to pay rent in the new location. As a result, her fans donated money to her through the STREET FOOD JOURNEY YouTube channel, allowing her to continue selling roti from the new location.


On October 4th, 2022, the STREET FOOD JOURNEY YouTube[1] page uploaded a video titled, "Beautiful And Hardworking ! The Most Popular Roti Girl in Bangkok." The video documents a roti street food vendor named Benjawan Kaewsaen working at her food cart and gained over 3.5 million views in five months (shown below). Some viewers also expressed their attraction for Kaewsaen in the comments.

Over the following months, numerous YouTubers uploaded videos visiting The Roti Lady. On December 15th, YouTuber[2] TASTY DIARY uploaded a video of her working, garnering over 2.1 million views in three months (shown below, left). On January 6th, 2023, YouTuber[3] Mr. Silverspoon uploaded a video in which he tips her $100, garnering over 609,000 views in two months (shown below, right).

Location Change and Plea for Help

On January 23rd, 2023, the STREET FOOD JOURNEY YouTube[4] channel uploaded a video titled "She Is In Trouble! The Most Famous Banana Pancake Roti Lady In Bangkok Needs Help 🙏." At the 9:13-minute mark, Puy explains that the municipality told her she has to move her cart to a new location, but the new location has higher rent. She expresses worries about paying the rent, sending her kids to school and taking care of her sick father, then asks for help. The video gained over 2.4 million views in two months (shown below).

On February 21st, YouTuber[5] REAL STREET FOOD uploaded a video titled "The FAMOUS Roti Queen Of Bangkok Can SMILE Again" where he shows Puy working at her new location, garnering over 2.1 million views in a month (shown below, left).
