Som Saa

It was the coffee experts Climpson & Sons who initially decided to transform their railway arch Roastery location into foodie hotspot Som Saa for exciting young chefs to showcase their talents. Luckily for us Londoners the Som Saa residency was the perfect pairing with the Thai restaurant and bar and now, having moved to a permanent Spitalfields location (a former fabric warehouse) helps the masses be introduced to the lesser known dishes of Northern and North-East provinces of Thailand, alongside Asian-inspired cocktails.

Chef Andy Oliver has the gravitas of time spent at Peckham’s Begging Bowl so expect great things; snack on poached prawns followed by octopus salad done on the grill with with a salted duck egg and Asian celery. The puds delight to a sumptuous finish with jackfruit (recently used to high acclaim on the BBC’s Great British Bake Off) with coconut cream and Chinese doughnuts.
