Busaba Eathai

Who doesn’t love Thai food? What’s there not to like about it – spicy, tangy, herby, nutritious, healthy and it’s not all about coconut curries as seems to the stereotype. Typical Thai restaurants come under the general umbrella of typical Asian restaurants, whether it’s Chinese or Indian – they all have lengthy menus offering 1001 dishes in every avatar possible. When generally steering clear from these ubiquitous eateries, one of my favourite Thai restaurants always comes to my rescue, Busaba Eathai, brainchild of the can-do-no-wrong Mr. Alan Yau (think Hakkasan, Yauatcha, Wagamama and you know what I’m on about!).

The good thing about Busaba is that there are a few all over London, all offering the same menu – limited in the number of dishes, but by no means restrained. Over the years I’ve probably tried all the dishes on the menu, barring those with shellfish and every time have walked out of the premises rather satiated and happy (thanks to the chillies!)

Jungle Chicken Curry, Morning Glory, Brown Rice. A tangy and spicy chicken curry with little clusters of green peppercorns to give a pungent fruity and slight bitterness that only green peppercorns are known to do, whilst the veg and the rice – well you cannot go wrong with these three dishes in front of you.

Busaba’s great to eat on your own or with a group – the bonus of eating with a group is being able to order lots of things to try, but morning glory will always be a favourite!
