JIM THOMPSON: A THAI RESTAURANT
Jim Thompson: A Thai Restaurant is more than just a dining destination; it’s an experience that, for one meal, transports you to Thailand. The seau rong hai (“crying tiger” aka grilled ribeye steak) is a must-try. The beef is juicy, while the shallots, chilli and tamarind served with it only further enhance the taste. A great way to test the quality and authenticity of a Thai restaurant is with its tom yum goong (hot-andsour prawn soup)—the version here is spicy, tangy and sweet at the same time. Make sure you save room for dessert. The ice cream kati (Thai coconut ice cream) brings back memories of cooling down after a long day of shopping at the Bangkok markets.
