Som Saa, the hit Thai pop-up that moved into a permanent Spitalfields site last year, is launching a new series of late-night openings on Saturday February 4, followed by the first Saturday night in every month.
The kitchen will stay open until 1.30am with a late-night menu of street-food classics from regional Thailand, including fermented pork with celery and fried rice, coconut smoked grilled chicken with tamarind dipping sauce, and laab pla, a northern Thai dish of minced fish, roasted rice powder and spicy regional herbs.
There will also be a rotating roster of guest DJs spinning tunes and – needless to say – a selection of beers, cocktails, and ice buckets of Thai whisky and soda.
Som Saa attracted ecstatic reviews for its “raw authentic flavours” in the latest Harden’s Survey, with reports of “dishes that could blow your head off” -“the food is like good drugs!”
Co-owner Tom George said: “Living in a capital city, Londoners shouldn’t be restricted by doors closing early and, once a month, we want Som Saa to be a haven for late-night revellers”.
