Supanniga Eating Room
Regional dining in most of the main European capitals is pretty much taken for granted, likewise it’s possible to sample several of China’s myriad cuisines in Hong Kong, Beijing or Shanghai, yet surprisingly, trying to discover the regional fare of Thailand can be quite a challenge in Bangkok, where Southern and Northeastern cooking dominates.
So it’s with wide-stretched arms that Supanniga Eating Room has been welcomed, with its highly unusual ‘seaside’ Trat-province-via-Khon-Kaen mash-up that sees the recipes of restaurateur Eh Laoraowirdoge’s grandmother taking a whole new generation of diners on a journey of taste.
With a heavy emphasis on local fermented fish sauce and dried shrimp, the recipes resonate with little known combinations and ingredients, like the silky, tender and mildly spiced pork curry moo cha muang simmered with sour cha muang leaves, or yum cha plu sardine that melds sardines with wild pepper leaves, tomato sauce and chilli, and pu jah, a melting mixture of savory crabmeat and pork stuffed into crab shells.
With its simple, 3-storey layout of chic black and canary yellow bar and dining room downstairs, second floor booths and third floor lounge and rooftop (perfect for post-prandial cocktails), the happening enclave of Thonglor goes regional redux. Thanks, grandma!
