When we heard Gastropod was gone, we gasped. But not all nosh is lost.
The space remains the same (save for a few minor cosmetic changes) and
in its place Maenam
has moved in (and its just as yummy).
Chef Angus An is still at the helm, but now hes putting to use his
penchant for Thai cuisine that he picked up working with David Thompson
at Nahm in London, the only Michelin-starred Thai restaurant running. In
fact, its he who inspired the fish dish we hada crispy lingcod with Thai
basil ($17) that hits the palate with sweet, salty and sour flavours all
Serve that up with a personalized cocktail ($10) dreamed up by the
bartender, some of the best Pad Thai ($14) weve ever had, and sweet Roti
($3), and theres no need to fly away when you can Thai-over your taste
buds then hit Kits beach.
