Guest Blog from Bangkok: Nahm

My friend Diya Bhattacharyya sends this guest post from Bangkok. Thanks, Diya!

Thailand is home to some of the most flavorful, rich, and comforting food in the world. The city of Bangkok especially provides many options that both foreigners and locals will enjoy. One restaurant in particular stands out for its bold and extravagant food. Nahm is an acclaimed upscale Thai restaurant that is considered to be one of the top 50 restaurants in the world (http://www.theworlds50best.com/list/1-50-winners/Nahm, visited on 07/28/2016). The dishes we tried burst with flavor and spice, exceeding our expectations of what Thai food could be.

First, the waiters presented us with a tasty "amuse-bouche" that consisted of minced pork with spices, peanuts, and palm sugar topped on a slice of pineapple. The tiny starter packed a sweet and sour punch that was a great way to start the meal.

The main meal was a "Panang curry of Wagyu beef with peanuts, shallots and Thai basil". The intense flavors of the spices blended together well and were balanced out by the sweet elements of the peanuts. The beef was incredibly tender and complemented the spices well.

Overall, Nahm is an elegant restaurant that does justice to Thai cuisine. Nahm is a restaurant that highly deserves its reputation as one of the best restaurants in the world.
