Transport a Thai Chef from the bustle of Bangkok to the stillness of Zen, the pan-Asian restaurant at The Park, Kolkata and voila, you have a chef whose shocked mind perhaps starts concocting traditional Thai with a hint of the modern. Perhaps, in this, is the genesis of Chef Nut Kunlert’s Modern Thai festival at Monsoon, The Park, Bangalore.
So you have interesting appetizers like a Grilled Caramel Chilli Glazed Chicken Skewer with Tangy Cucumber Salad; Crispy Bean Curd with Tangy Raw Papaya Salad that provides for an interesting medley of flavour and texture; and a Thai style Samosa with Sweet Chilli and Basil Dip.
The Modern Thai festival runs through 2nd August 09, and if you visit, don’t leave without trying the Herb Marinated Lamb Chops with Chilli Sauce, Sweet Pumpkin and Peanut Curry and the Kolkata influenced Beer Batter fried Bekti. Our unusual desert pick is the Fried Gingered Chocolate Truffle with Coconut Ice-cream.
