(Includes GST, fees may apply)




BKK, Level 3, HER 270 Lonsdale St
Melbourne, 3000

Palisa Anderson of Sydney's Chat Thai is stepping into the kitchen at BKK with chef Sungeun Mo to explore the world Thai Chinese cuisine, with a feast inspired by Palisa's late mother, Amy Chanta, and her Thai-Chinese heritage.

Together Palisa and Mo will delve into this dynamic cooking style, drawing inspiration from a specific style of shopfront restaurant in Thailand called raarn khao gtom, which translates to "Thai rice porridge shop" or "congee shop".

You'll enjoy a bowl of congee served alongside a progressive three-drop selection of 12 side dishes. Expect to see the likes of triple-cooked pork belly; a warm salad of oysters, mussels and clams; stir-fried bitter melon and egg; lobster with salted egg yolk; braised pork knuckle and blood jelly pahlo; and stir-fried chayote tips and calamari with green chilli and lime. Freshly harvested produce from Palisa's certified organic farm, Boon Luck, will be a feature.

It's a feast of flavour, and an adventure for anyone interested in the nuances of the food culture in Thailand.
