Anyone for a trip to Thailand?
Don't worry, you needn't go far — Chang Beer's free, multisensory foodie event is back on 12 May, and it's bringing the vibrancy of Thai food culture right to the heart of London. Saves you the cost of a plane ticket, eh?
The event, Chang Sensory Trails, is returning to the UK this year as part of a four-city tour — kicking off in London, before making its way up to Birmingham, Manchester and Edinburgh. What can you expect? Only a delectable line-up of the best Thai food favourites — with a mix of music and art alongside — and all washed down with a refreshing Chang beer.
Sounds like a recipe for a fantastic evening.
Eight of London's top Thai restaurants will be taking part, each serving up a signature 'home dish'. They've been expertly created to pair just nicely with Chang, and there's a story behind every bite — the chef's behind each one have taken cues from some best-loved Thai favourites.
So, what can your tastebuds expect whilst you take in the sights and sounds of Thailand? Here are some of the signature dishes on offer
