eatmerestaurantGastronomy in a glass, a sneak peak at Eat Me's new cocktail series - Sip Some Thai. The Laab Moo is where it all started and the inspiration for our new bespoke cocktail concept launching soon. #sipsomethai #gastronomyinaglass #isan #mixologistpop #whatsonateatme #cocktails #cocktailbar
- grantourismoThis cocktail looks incredible! Can't wait to try the new cocktails. Though I have to point out the Lao influence is relatively recent. Isan was part of what we now know as Cambodia and before it the Khmer Empire, before that the Chenla Kingdom, and before that the Kingdom of Funan (which also controlled central and much of Southern Thailand) - for about 1,300 years, during which time most of the people spoke Khmer. Laos and Thais started settling in Issan in the 1700s. Khmer is still widely spoken all over and the cuisine is practically the same with one big difference - the amount of chili used. Isaan people like their food fiery, as you know, whereas Khmer prefer spice rather than heat.
