Nong Khai Beer House

Sunday afternoon and we’ve ventured to golden mile for lunch. We surfaced from basement car park and were greeted with the odd smell of bamboo shoots – one that I closely associated with Thailand. This basement is buzzing – prominently displayed hand phone and calling adverts, blaring Thai Music, it feels foreign to me but for the many that loiter and mill around here, this is their home away from home.

The cooking here is rather remarkable. There is a spirit of entrepreneurship and tenacity. Many of these basement shops don’t have a gas stove – chicken gets broiled by a turbo-broiler, the food is simple and very homely. Because of this slight limitation the menu is tilted towards salads but the plates come fresh and bright, delivering the classic Thai sweet, spicy, sour and salty punch. Share stack salad bites on some sticky rice then soothe the heat down with some milky Thai ice tea, and for that moment, enjoy the feeling of being foreign in your own land and finding comfort in food.
