Get ready for flavor as Chef Prin Polsuk and his team cooks some of the distinct flavors that are an unmistakable blend of perfectly balanced taste. The focus is on how the flavors and textures of premium quality ingredients interact together.
The balance in the taste of sweet, spicy, salty and sour is addictive.
The flavors on the plate have heat, sourness, smoke, and bitterness to tease your palate. It is unbelievably delicious and spicy!
RICE TO TAKE THE SPICE
The best way to eat Thai cuisines and curries is with a nice plate of new rice. Thai food is meant to be eaten together; the mingling of taste is best described as a mixture of all the dishes with the binder and base as the new rice.
Everything is eaten together to experience the layer of flavors mingled with the spicy, smoky, oily, creamy taste.
The fresh herbs and aromatics provide a breath of freshness. Get ready for the full burst of flavor. I was surprised and delighted with the dining experience.
Dining at Nahm is to experience a real adventure in tasting authentic Thai cuisine. For serious gourmets, it is an excellent taste test of rare ingredients from all regions of Thailand.
Diners are free to choose a la carte or order the set menu. We decided to try the recommend the set menu option to experience the powerful and painstakingly balanced flavors synonymous with Thai cuisine.
We look forward to tasting traditional Thai cuisine, with spicy heavily flavored succulent morsels of meat, shellfish, and fish.
Our introduction to Thai cuisine began with Londoners’ favorite amuse-bouche called ‘ma hor’. A spoonful of the chewy concoction of minced shrimp, chicken, and nuts reduced in palm sugar is placed on top of a slice of pineapple.
This is followed by a tasty Miang Kham. This dish has a blend of coconut, ginger, peanut, lime and chili on top of a fresh betel leaf which is very appetizing.
The next canapés feature two delicious triangles of egg nets with prawns, wild almonds and kaffir lime.
The next courses of the set are served together in traditional Thai style. It consists of two salads, clear Tom Yum Goong soup, and a chicken soup with plump straw mushrooms. Watch out for that unmistakable chili and lime kick!
The salad options are refreshing and imaginative. We liked the lemongrass spring salad of prawns, squid, and pork with toasted coconut.
The dishes are beautifully seasoned. We enjoyed the delicious taste so much that we lost track of the names. The set lunch takes over two hours to finish, as food at Nahm is to be savored and mused over.
We enjoyed a sweet end to our meal with tasty Thai desserts. ‘Nam Keng Sai’ (shaved ice dessert) is a staple of Thai dining. It has a mini-mountain of ice with a treasure of seasonal fruits and vegetables covered in coconut milk.
Our all-time favorite is the classic Thai dessert of mango and sticky rice. This dessert garnished with thick coconut cream and sesame.
