Hainanese He­roes

Thailand Tatler - - STYLE JEWELLERY -

Fruit seems to be the or­der of the day as Chu­laluck Piya­som­bat­kul, or Moo of Moo Eye­wear, ar­rives at Go Ang res­tau­rant in Bang Po in a Dolce & Gab­bana pineap­ple-print dress and a Char­lotte Olympia wa­ter­melon bas­ket tote in one hand. She tells us that this mod­estly run Hainanese eatery has been one of her fam­ily’s favourites since she was a child. “Well, we’re Hainanese, so we love Hainanese chicken and rice,” she says with a laugh. An­other dish she al­ways or­ders is Hainanese rice noo­dles served in a full-bod­ied broth and topped with ten­der pork and pick­led cab­bages. “I rec­om­mend you try it with the ac­com­pa­ny­ing shrimp paste sauce,” says the 30-year-old.

Moo usu­ally or­ders home de­liv­ery from Go Ang but oc­ca­sion­ally pays a visit out of nos­tal­gia. While or­der­ing take­away and be­fore head­ing off to a meet­ing, she tells us of some of her other favourite ca­sual out­lets. “I like go­ing to Guay Tiew Kua Gai Ann on Luang Road in Chi­na­town, which serves ex­cel­lent fresh rice noo­dles wok-fried with chicken, and Lim Lao Sa, which has su­perb fish­ball noo­dles. My late night food ven­tures usu­ally start with some­thing savoury and fin­ish with some­thing sweet at Mon Nom­sod.”
