What if we went around the streets of Thailand? That’s what the new restaurant, Soï, offers to those who walk through the doors of its establishment. Fluorescent neon lights, plastic chairs, aluminium tables, everything brings us to the streets of Bangkok. We take a seat and start by ordering a Singha beer. From our vantage point, we see the dishes coming straight out of the kitchen. The bosses are Chef Yuttakan, at the helm of the kitchen, and Sandrine, who works the tables. With smiles on their faces they welcome the clients and spread the warmth of Thailand.
Here we select our choices on a sheet of paper: street-style chicken wings, Sai Ua sausage, Kai Yang, Laab Moo, Laab Hed. Dish names that transport us to the East.
The dishes are, well, Thai, and therefore spicy! When you see a little pepper drawn onto the menu, do ask for less spice otherwise your mouth will catch fire! But what to choose among all the dishes? A Big like for the Sai Ua sausage, which is THE homemade sausage from Chiang Mai, quite spicy but delicious. You will also love the Kho Moo Yang, pork marinated in Thai whisky. Lots of dishes are Yaang, ie. grilled. But you will also find Laab, salads and soups.
Forget about traditional green or red curry and let yourself be whisked away to the other side of the world for a highly authentic culinary voyage!
