Thai street food
Chachawan may look like a hipster, all-style-no-substance place but trust us, there’s plenty of substance here. Serving food from the Northeastern Isan region, you won’t find any watery green curries or soggy pad thais here. The fresh, spicy flavours and charred grilled meats takes us back to the streets of Chang Mai. Everything on the menu is good. We have a soft spot for the grilled pork collar and duck larp (minced meat salad). Don’t forget to get some steamed sticky rice to mop up the delicious juices and calm down the spice. A cocktail or two will also do the job.
Duck larb (minced meat salad) and grilled kurobuta pork collar are must tries, and don't forget to order green papaya salad and sticky rice on the side.
