SOM CHAI – THAILAND
Jalan Raya Kerobokan 86A
Will Meyrick has drawn on his vast experience to create a menu that not only uses authentic ingredients but the cooking methods intrinsic to their taste. He did a three-month research excursion to discover the intricacies of traditional and Thai cuisine, where wood fire stoves, charcoal fire grills, and clay cooking pots impart specific flavors to the food and the inclusion of homemade ferments add a wonderful and unique quality. The intensive preparation of these home-made ferments, fish sauces, and shrimp pastes is at the heart of Thai style flavors – at once sharp, sour, sweet, spicy and sometimes pungent. The attention to each step of the preparation, both in the kitchen and at the table, brings all the authentic nuances of Thai cooking to the guest in a way that is hard to replicate. Come try it out!
