We started off with 2 overly sweet cocktails, where the alcohol couldn’t be discerned, something that we appeared to notice throughout Bangkok when ordering spirits.
pork and lobster with shredded ginger and thai citron
blue swimmer crabs, peanuts and pickled garlic on rice cakes
chiang mai larp of guinea fowl
prawns and coconut wafers with pickled ginger
this was quite ironic, as it turned out to be the only mango/ sticky rice we ate during the entire weekend, and we probably paid about 10x a normal price.
Additionally, probably from our 10+ hours spent on a plane, our leaves were quite heavily chapped. Let me tell you, chapped lips and spicy/ sour food do not go well together!
Finally, for a restaurant lauded in the San Pellegrino, the service of the staff in this restaurant was extremely lacking. Descriptions were proferred only after asking multiple times, and little things such as refilling water glasses were overlooked.
