Padma Lakshmi is turning up the heat outside of the Top Chef kitchen.

On Saturday, the TV host and famous foodie gave fans a glimpse inside her trip to the Dominican Republic — not to mention a jaw-dropping reveal at her trim figure thanks to the black string bikini she’s sporting in her travel pic.

“Feelin’ fine at 49,” the former model, who turns 50 in September, captioned the sultry shot.

Lakshmi’s body-confident post comes just a few weeks after she ended 2019 with a daring nude black-and-white photo shoot, which she also shared on Instagram.

Unsurprisingly, the bikini photo has left fans — including comedian Ali Wong, who commented with a series of flame emojis — impressed.

“Aging like fine wine,” read one comment.

“And fully in your prime,” added a follower.

“About to start my 49th year as well,” one fan wrote. “You are beyond beautiful and amazing.”

“No way,” another commenter responded. “I wanna be like you when I grow up.”

“I would say better than fine,” a fan told Lakshmi, who is mom to 9-year-old daughter Krishna. “You’re looking amazing.”

Lakshmi has been sharing snippets from her vacation on Instagram Stories, including moments with her daughter, spa time and, of course, fabulous meals.
