Lighter dishes fresh from Bangkok
Temperatures in London are finally rising (perhaps not quite to the Bangkok standards...), so we've brought you a new range of light and delicious salads inspired by the aromas and flavours we've discovered on our recent trip to Thailand's capital.
Our most popular addition, Superfood yam pak with chicken salad heavily features avocado which is as big in Bangkok as it is here! We found avocado on the menus of the hippest places so had to get it on our salad too! If you like it meat-free and even lighter, this salad is also available as a vegan option without the chicken! We can promise you'll get hooked to the sesame, soy, tamarind and coconut dressing which has an unforgettable sweet and savory taste to it.
In the mood for something spicier? The Classic Thai beef salad is served warm, which is typical in Bangkok, and is best enjoyed by wrapping the filling in a lettuce leaf before taking a bite, so you enjoy a well balanced mix of all the flavours. This is fun, but takes practice to perfect! We make ours with chicory which have a great crunch and add a mild-to-peppery flavour to the salads. They're low in calories and a good source of fiber, potassium, and vitamins C and B9.
Like it even spicier? Som Tam is one of Thailand's most well known dishes and is delicious as a side. After queuing for a long time to try the Som Tam at Bangkok's SomTam Nua which was incredible, we made up our mind to introduce a mixed version as a main. Ours includes carrot, papaya, green mango, Thai aubergine and pickled mustard greens with lime and cherry tomatoes. We have added some rice noodles to make it a refreshing main portion perfect for lunch or dinner!
