Street food is one of the most important aspects of life in Thailand. You can find street vendors in any town with locals crowded around slurping the affordable and delicious eats.
Bangkok is especially famous for its street food scene. The city sizzles with activity as locals gather around street stalls devouring curries or sitting at street-side tables enjoying each masterful chef’s specials.
Thai people see street food as a proud element of their culture and Bangkok’s world-famous street food scene offers an incredible variety of spicy, savory, and sweet treats cooked street side with recipes passed down for generations.
Chef Nico Simeone and his team invite guests to dive deeper into the ‘Thai Street Food’ canon at Six by Nico restaurants in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Belfast to offer a unique culinary experience inspired by the famed food stalls.
The top chef recently spent time in his kitchens with Cindy Sirapassorn, owner of the award winning Passorn Thai, learning some of her traditional Thai family recipes and understanding how integral food is to Thai culture and identity – from creamy curries and spicy stir fries to classic dishes that combine the hot, sour, sweet and salty flavours of Thai cuisine.
From Tuesday 9th July – Sunday 18th August 2019 guests dining at Six by Nico restaurants in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Belfast are invited to roam through a food-lover’s paradise with a six course tasting menu inspired by the roadside hot spots of Thailand.
