    Royal Thai Cuisine

    Has anyone ever tried this type of food?

    i have heard it mentioned before but can't really find out on google what exactly it is

    obviously it is some sort of traditional Thai food slightly different from everyday food
    my wife says "not same food on the street"

    I am going to a restaurant tonight that has a 9 course Royal Thai cuisine menu
    any clues?

    to me its all about presentation, balance and a lack of real chilli spice....very ornate and small servings in the correct bowls/plates etc....also very fine in how its ingredients are chopped/prepared....the basic dishes are the same without the Issan peasant and street food

    large floral table settings and fruit carvings are also used as decoration

    There used to be a fruit carver at a table outside of a Thai restaurant in Jung Ceylon.
    He was very talented.

    I wonder what sort of food the royals eat?

    Whether the K!ng gets a sneaky 7/11 toasty delivered to him or not

    Royal Thai ! ... 555

    Very much the same as Jo cooks; freshest of ingredients, high proportion of vegetables, salads and soups ... as Bacwaan suggests, not too much chili.
    Cheers, Rob.

    As a big big fan of fine dining I don't see the combination of it with Thai food. Thai food should not look fancy I think.

    I don't see why not presentation , quality of ingredients can only add to the experience

    i woke up sick and have been since( think i got a parasite in Colombia, waiting for results)
    this is the restaurant, the chef worked at Nahm, which was talked about on here on another thread
    we will go when i get better

    Maenam - An authentic, world-class Thai restaurant in Vancouver from Chef Angus An.

    but yes, the entrees look about 3-4cad more than your regular thai restaurant

    to be honest, although i have started to enjoy thai food more this year, i just used this as collateral so that my wife agrees to go to Vij's next, an incredible Indian restaurant in Vancouver( some have named it top 5 in the world!)

    $10 for som tam Thai is bit rich and $15 for stir-fry morning glory is crazy. Other prepared dishes which take a lot of time to assemble and cook are pretty fair.
    Cheers, Rob.

    compared to what though? Thailand? you can't really compare prices to casual thai restaurants in Thailand
    $9-10 is what som tam is in pretty much any restaurant, the pappaya is expensive

    this is where my wife works, more of an average thai restaurant, most entrees are $14

    Menu

    and if you were to go to what people consider more than just casual thai restaurants in Thailand, the prices wouldn't be that much cheaper
    i used to go to Silk a lot when Robert ran it, and i think a lot of items where in the 300-450baht range( could be slightly off on that, long time ago)

    If papaya/paw paw is exxy, as a sub-tropical fruit and probably NOT imported usually as unripe, fair enough. Is morning glory an exotic vegetable in Canada?
