Get south of the river as Tem Ban bring their take on traditional Thai cooking to The King & Co this Autumn, in their kitchen residency…
Tem Ban’s founder and head chef Craig Broadhurst’s passion for Thai food was awakened and developed while working at various stints at The Begging Bowl in Peckham, Andy Oliver’s Thai Grill at Bar Story, and at the Smoking Goat. You may have heard of Tem Ban’s sell-out launch dinners at The Lido Cafe or a few previous popups. Expect full-on flavours, traditional Thai cooking and an array of snacks, small and large dishes, as well as brunch specials from Tem Ban’s first extended residency.
What to Try?
Choose from a regularly-rotating menu that will mix up the the intense flavours of traditional Thai ingredients with modern cooking techniques. If you’re in to share snacks or small plates over drinks then go for the Crispy Pigs Ears with sour burnt chilli sauce; the Beef La Lot – lemongrass and black pepper marinated minced beef wrapped and grilled in a betel leaf; or there’s the crispy Red Curry Fish Cakes. If you’re in for a feast, then don’t miss the large plates, including Geng Haeng Lae – braised Chiang Mai pork belly curry with pickled garlic and coriander; or the moreish Whole Thai Steamed Fish of the day, with garlic, lime and chilli dressing.
You can’t leave without ending on the Pandan Ice Cream drizzled with coconut and palm sugar caramel.
