We will explain why we call this dish Tiger’s Tears. You know when you grill beef on a barbecue and the fat or water drips on to the charcoal and makes a hissing sound? Well, the drops of water represent the tears and the hissing represents the tiger. E-sarn people are absolutely crazy about grilled beef and this is his recipe. It goes so well with Thai whisky.

Slow-cooked lamb massaman curry is a creamy curry with tender of lamb shank and potato.

Lamb massaman curry is a truly luxurious dish. Lamb Shanks cooked in a massaman sauce become meltingly tender and the spices blend so harmoniously with the lamb it truly is a perfect match. This is an oven-cooked dish requiring around 3 hours of cooking time.


Southen Thai curry with spareribs.

Gaeng khua prik is a fiery, water-based curry with baby back pork ribs and makrut lime leaves that hails from the south of Thailand. Its intense heat comes from a combination of both dried and fresh Thai chiles and copious amounts of black pepper. That heat is intensified by the fact that the curry contains no coconut milk, which tames the spiciness of other curries with its relatively high fat content and its delicate sweetness.
