Setting

If you wish to try an alternative to street food this narrow shophouse joint is a great choice. There are some interesting takes on traditional local flavours and strong cocktails infused with local spirits and herbs. Book in advance!

Food

Mieng kham, a traditional do-it-yourself one bite leaf wrap filled with chopped items such as lime, onion, nuts, roasted garlic, chilli, dried coconut and a sweet and salty sauce is a good way to start your meal. Here it is served with grilled pork, which makes for an interesting twist. Butterhead lettuce leaves are used as the wrap, which kind of takes away the unique scent and taste of the betel leaf, originally an essential ingredient of any mieng kham. Also try yam hua plee, which features slices of banana blossom with grilled chicken presented in a sweet and sour dressing. Refreshing papaya salad is also a good choice and sticky tamarind ribs is popular too. The meat is cooked to perfection and extremely tender. The desserts include classic mango and sticky rice and a small selection of ice creams, including durian ice cream for the more adventurous.

Wine

The wine list is short but the cocktails inspired by Thai cuisine are creative and popular with regulars.
