It is both a place that pay homage to the lady as well as a place that serves some pretty awesome Thai dishes. Took a peek at the menu and there's a good varieties of both western as well as local dishes. Of course, before the restaurant manager guide my host and I to our table, I went around to look at the place. I have to say that I'm kicking myself now for not taking more photos while I'm there but then, my attention was more to the various items and photos they have there.
The dishes that we were served include the likes of Deep Fried Shrimp Cakes which even though is deep fried, still have a wonderful texture when bitten, Shrimps tend to cook pretty fast and turn rubbery if not controlled well but Anna & Son’s Shrimp Cakes was still succulent even though the outside is crispy.
The 3rd dish was the Grilled Pork with spicy sauce, tasty and I practically finished it all. Wasn't too spicy and the pork was superbly tender!
The 5th dish was the Stir Fried Broccoli with Shrimp, simple dish, like a taste of home all the way in Bangkok. Can’t say much except that I finished the shrimps on the dish and left the greens for the other guests. No one was complaining (but even if they do, I wouldn’t be able to understand because they were talking in Thai and I can’t understand a single thing they say).
Lastly, Tom Yam Gung. Huge shrimps and it wasn’t that spicy so I love it! Yes, I can’t eat spicy food and was worried that the Tom Yam was too spicy but it wasn’t, nice balance of sour and spicy notes in the soup.
Oh yes, don’t forget the dessert, one of their trademark dessert is the Chocolate Cube Cake that is nice and fluffy. If not because we have another round of training after lunch, I would have gone for another round of the cake.
Tempted with the wide range of wine but I stuck with a cup of Black Americano to compliment the cake.
Definitely a place I would love to visit again when I visit Bangkok again. Especially if I’m going on a date and wanted some place nice.
The kicker at the end of lunch, was the owner of the restaurant inviting us to the kitchen after I was introduced to him. Super meticulous and systematic team. Working confidently and quietly together like a group of well oiled gears. I was standing there for some time as an order came in, the assistant just have a quick look at the order, picked up the various ingredients and slide it off to the chef and they just started working together. Next thing I know, I picked up my jaw and watch the dish goes out to pass and a quick chim of the table bell to inform the waiter(s) the dish is ready to be served. Awesome stuff.
