Chang, the fastest growing beer in Thailand is bringing some of London’s favourite Thai dishes together for Chang Sensory Trails and taking over The Last Days of Shoreditch on Saturday 12th May (one of LDN Life’s favourite summertime venues). Plus with the weather improving all the time, It’s fitting that chang stands for smiles, golden sunshine and sharing good times with friends.
This year, Chang has partnered with 8 London based Thai restaurants; Tawana, Bang Bang Soho, Patara, 101 Thai Kitchen, LAO Cafe, Rosa’s Thai Cafe, Thai Tho and Nipa Thai. With the head chef from each restaurant challenged with creating a signature dish representing Thai home cooking.
Signature Recipes are dishes inspired by the philosophy of Lamiat. These are recipes that have been perfected over time. Plus on top of their event menu, every food partner will offer event guests a taste of their own signature dish on a first come, first served basis, so get there early to avoid disappointment.
Whilst they all looked great, it was 101 Thai Kitchen and their signature dish that caught our eye. So ahead of the big day, LDN Life went along to sample their Pad Grapow Chicken. Stir-fried chicken with chillies, garlic, and basil, served with steamed rice and fried egg.
We spoke with Sutti, the passionate co-owner and co-founder of 101 Thai Kitchen at 352 Kings Street. Their restaurant has been a Thai food mainstay of the area since it opened 14 years ago, and while the area has changed massively in that time, you can tell that their chosen signature dish still holds true to the food they have always loved to eat and prepare for their guests.
When we asked Sutti about why they chose Pad Grapow Chicken. He explained that if you can think what you would like to eat, that’s what they would order. A simple dish that’s full of flavour and with a lovely kick spice.
When his signature dish arrived, alongside a bottle of Chang beer (of course) it was was exactly what I imagined it to be and a little bit more. Perhaps it was the conversation with my new friend Sutti that helped elevate it, either way, it well worth the journey across London and I’m looking forward to eating it again on Saturday.
So whilst Chang beer and great Thai food is a big part of the Chang Sensory Trails, it’s not just fantastic tastes and smells, it plans to be a feast for all the senses. As you’ll also be able to experience two fantastic up-and-coming bands, the Soul Strutters and CDD Trio Band who will be performing throughout the day.
So don’t miss the chance to eat and drink some of the best that Thailand has to offer this weekend.
