The latest pop-up concept taking residency at La Cave - a wine bar, pop-up space and incubator kitchen located below Rondo at The Hoxton - is Chet's, in collaboration with Kris Yenbamroong, who's also behind the cult natural wine and Thai food hangout, Night + Market, in Los Angeles.
Chet's takes inspiration from the classic comforts of an American diner whilst combining this with the fragrant flavours and textures of food from Thailand and the surrounding regions. Highlights from the menu include: the Chiang Rai chilli dog with nam prik on - a savory spicy pork ragu and Stinky Fish Pasta - Bucatini with butter and pla raa fermented fish. Open Tuesday to Saturday, 5pm-12.30am.
The Chiang Rai Chilli Dog with nam prik on - a savory spicy pork ragu; wedge saled - Kris’ take on the classic wedge salad; Smash Burgers with bird’s eye thousand island and Nam Prik Gapi - a chilli dip made with Thai eggplant and shrimp paste, served with egg-battered Japanese eggplant slices for dipping and to finish - an ice cream sandwich.
