Our guest house in Bangkok is well eccentric. Stuffed with vintage oddities and quirky paint jobs.
Lunch at Nahm in Bangkok: blue swimmer crab, peanuts, and pickled garlic on rice cakes prawn and coconut wafers with pickled ginger salted beef jungle curry with chilli and ginger stir-fried pork with dried shrimp and apple eggplant oyster mushrooms stir fried with blue swimmer crab and oyster sauce dessert duo of rambutan sorbet and mango and coconut cream crisp The whole meal was delightful, and the dessert was hands-down the best we had in Asia.
