It’s no secret that the best Thai food comes from street vendors sprawled across the country.
But with the Thai government clamping down on some of these makeshift street hawkers, your go-to roadside stall for crispy Thai pancake might have already disappeared in a moment’s notice.
Fret not, as Blue Jasmine brings a slice of bustling street food culture into a contemporary dining setting.
Located at the spanking new Park Hotel Farrer Park, the halal-certified restaurant adopts a communal dining concept.
Led by Chef Bright Kan San, the restaurant uses only herbs and spices imported from Thailand for its authentic dishes.
Here’s what you should try:
Fried to a nice golden crisp, the Larb Chicken Balls ($12), rolled out of minced chicken meat, were explosive with flavours thanks to the infusion of smoked chili, kaffir lime leaf and crispy ground rice.
On the other hand, the Larb Salmon ($18) offered a moist and lighter variation. Featuring a medley of salmon tartare, tomato concassee, red shallots and lemongrass, the dish offered a spicy kick thanks to its tamarind dressing.
