sriranchaSriracha Food Festival
You can never go wrong with Sriracha. The spicy Thai chilli sauce made from red chilli peppers, garlic, vinegar, salt, and sugar is tangy, versatile, uber flavourful and has for long now enjoyed immense popularity the world over. We for one simply can’t get enough of the delicious hot sauce and Chef Kayzad Sadri, Executive Chef at KOH is of the same opinion. Sadri and his team have crafted a pop up menu based solely on this unique sauce. The special menu includes mouth-watering dishes such as Phad Dou hu sot Sriracha – grilled tofu with soy with sriracha pearls, Phad Moo Sap Yang Sriracha – sriracha glazed pork spare ribs, sesame and chilli dust, Phad Pik kai sriracha – marinated chicken wings tossed in honey sriracha sauce, Kunchieng Poo Thord sriracha – crab meat, spring onion, lemon zest and sriracha chilli fried, Khao Phad fried rice with homemade sauce, broccoli, peppers and baby corn which are all designed to highlight the sauce. The divine Kluy Bued Chee –ripe banana simmered in sweetened coconut milk makes for an ideal end to the meal. Don’t miss out if you’re not afraid to spice it up a bit.
