Chachawan is a collaboration between restaurateur Yenn Wong and Chef Adam Cliff, and is one of the newest Thai restaurants in Hong Kong. It specialises in Issan Cuisine from the North-Eastern region of Thailand. For those of you who are not familiar with Issan food, it focuses mainly on grilled meats and salads which have a balanced of sour, salty and spicy flavours.
Over the past year, Hong Kong has seen the addition of many new fantastic restaurants, and during my recent trip, I had a hard time trying to fit in as many places as I could in my list of to-eat restaurants. One of the most hyped-about restaurants in Hong Kong right now is Little Bao at Staunton Street in Central. Think an American diner with a modern Asian twist, dishing out familiar and comforting renditions of our Asian favourites over the counter and in many refreshing manners. The place may be tiny, but never dead. If any, it is full of energy, and is the kind of swanky spot which will easily fit into the linear of New York or London.
