Restaurant `Nahm`, The Oriental city`s finest.

     nahm bangkok  I won`t babble on about Nahm when i`ve done it a couple of times at length on here already. The most important thing is to actually see what you`re going to get to eat whilst you`re there so just take a quick look at the pics below. Anyone wanting more detail about the restaurant then simply have a little look at my previous post HERE.

 The food at Nahm is up there with the best you`ll ever eat in Thailand. It`s traditional royal Thai cuisine brought into the modern world by Australian Chef David Thompson. On this occasion , same as the previous visits i chose the Nahm set menu for 1800 baht (£36 ) which is very good value for what many rate as the number 1 restaurant in BangkokP1070121

Ive been to Nahm 4 times now and every visit is more or less the same….or as the Thais say ” Same same but different “. I`ll probably give it a miss for a while now and start trying other places. My trip to Sra Bua ( HERE ) was enjoyable and I`d like to eat here again although in a huge city based around food I could eat in a different place every day for the rest of my life .As far as amazing food goes then it really doesn`t get any better than Bangkok.

Dinner always starts off with little bites of “Ma Hor ”   Minced Pork / Shrimp , Palm sugar , Tamarind and Peanuts sitting on top of fresh Thai Pineapple.

If you like your meal spread out slowly over the evening then be prepared , it`s all pretty quick stuff here. Once you`ve eaten the selection of Nahm appetisers , all of the mains arrive at once in traditional Thai style , soups , curries , salads and relishes all crowd the table in one delivery. I suppose you could request that the soup be served as a separate course to make the meal last a bit longer .Other than that you`ll be in and out of the restaurant in just over an hour.

I must attract them as i`m always getting bitten.This little critter preferred the taste of Thai Pineapple rather than my legs on this occasion. The restaurant did change the dish.
