Erawan Classic Thai & Fusion
Being located in fairly nondescript surroundings has not dampened Erawan’s popularity. The restaurant is now into its seventh year and its fusion Thai cuisine continues to charm.
As the restaurant is rather small with only 10 tables or so, regulars know to make reservations and order in advance.
Start with the very delectable mangosteen salad, a happy riot of prawns, cuttlefish and mangosteen drenched in a moreish tangy dressing. What truly sets the tom yum soup apart here is the thick soup base that’s redolent of myriad herbs, spices and briny seafood. As a boon, you get to dictate the level of spice. There are many rare unique dishes on the menu. One such gem is the fresh cockles in thick red curry that’s cooked to a lovely crunch and topped with betel leaves.
