For lunch, through a detailed menu, I treated myself with 4 Thai dishes. Including Stir Fried Malindjo leaves with egg (Bai Lieng Pad Kai). Sour Spicy Fish Curry (Geang Som Pla Yod Maprao). Thai Chicken Satay Bowl served with blue rice. The blue color of the rice comes from the flower petals of Clitoria ternatea (butterfly-pea), which are mainly used as a natural food coloring in its cooking. A tasty and delicious dish. Lastly, I indulged in Crab Curry with Cha Plu leaves (Chef Ake’s Geang Pu Bai Chapu Meehun). This is an excellent signature dish of Chef Ake. With its sinfully rich flavors and thick curry sauce, it’s a dish that will blow your taste buds. Highly recommended!
