When the owner of Sri Trat decided to bring the famed cuisine of his home province Trat, on the eastern seaboard of Thailand, to the capital, city dwellers rejoiced. The menu of fiery seafood and curries carries recipes from the owner’s mother, whose mural stylishly takes over one wall of the home-turned-restaurant in Phrom Phong. Exposed brick, turquoise and pops of red give the space a vibrancy that plays nicely with authentic dishes that also pop with colour. You’ll want to start with one of their kapi dipping chilli sauces served with crunchy vegetables, or the ceviche-style barracuda herbal salad that is served with a secret homemade sauce. Don’t miss the massaman curry with young durian instead of potato, or the pork curry with chamuang leaves for heartier choices. The restaurant offers a dessert platter that features signatures like khao krieb pak mor dieng or stuffed coconut and green beans, and bua loy haeng, mochi-like dumplings smothered in coconut sauce. Plus, with a cocktail menu created by the team behind top bar Backstage, staying quenched throughout the night will be dangerously easy.
