Elegant royal recipes in an atmospheric dining space in the city
Neither this chef nor the restaurant need lengthy introduction. Chef Nooror Somany Steppe of Blue Elephant Bangkok has been consistently presenting memorable dishes at this elegant dining space for years.
The restaurant is situated conveniently next to Surasak BTS Skytrain station. This beautiful yellow-walled colonial-style home takes centre stage against the humdrum of the surrounding office buildings. The dining space is packed nightly with
expats, tourists and locals flocking to savour on the famed royal recipes.
“I learned so much from my childhood helping my mother in the kitchen,” Chef Nooror reminisced on her culinary journey. “For this menu, I’d like to promote the benefits of Thai herbs in food. That it doesn’t only taste great but also healthy to eat,” she added.
Chef presented some of the special menus for the upcoming Eat Drink Pink event. The lineup began with a dish of surprisingly crunchy and refreshing Jerusalem Artichokes salad served with Phuket Tuna and topped with an abundance of sea grapes. The combination of herbs and spices offered sensational mouthfeels.
Next, Chor Chompoo or pink bundle filled with spicy and sour Kua Kling or yellow curry made from wild almonds was another star. The dish is served in bite-sized pieces offering pleasant flavours and aromas in every bite.
Another bite-sized splendour was the Sago crisps with eggplant mousse and caviar, a perfect combination of texture and tastes.
Then came the Southern-style Peranakan curry with fresh snapper meat. The sweetness of the meat blended with the sourness in the soup made for very sensational tastes and textures.
This was followed by Ayuttaya giant river prawns with black diamond garlic and red and green pepper. The delicious and sweet prawn’s meat delivered satisfying flavours while the combination of spices and black garlic complimented with a delightful aroma.
Curry Mai Fun with pink noodles presented itself with a bundle of delicate and pink rice noodles served with robust curry that blends together beautifully.
The conclusion of the meal presented itself in beautiful pink rose mousse made from Carandas plum fruit and Kanom Maw Kaeng or Thai-style custard cake made from Pistachio and date palm.
