[Thailand: Bangkok] Concrete Jungle at 1* Samrub Samrub

Rating: 4/5

Follow me to Samrub Samrub - founded by Chef Prin and his wife Mint with the goal of preserving lost Thai recipes and ingredients! The couple travels around Thailand extensively to explore sub-local regional Thai food culture and hyper-seasonal ingredients. The menu changes bi-monthly and the theme for our menu in December was “Concrete Jungle Food”. Aside from exploring regional Thai cuisine through the chef’s reinterpretation, the meal was also super fun with all kinds of local moonshine and (cannabis) liquor flowing throughout the meal!
