Love Thai food? We do too. Luckily, you have another excuse to dedicate your week to this amazing cuisine: Thai New Year. This holiday, also known as Songkran, is celebrated with a whole lot of water. Splashing people, statues, etc. with water symbolizes washing off all misfortunes in the past year to welcome the new year with a fresh start (TWSF recommends Super Soakers).
To celebrate Songkran, Asia Nine an Asian fusion restaurant located in Penn Quarter, is offering a $39 four-course prix fixe menu created by Chef Boonrod Yotmanee (Chef Rod). Although the New Year is technically April 13-15th, Asia Nine knows the importance of good Thai food and is extending the offer from April 11-17th.
We were lucky enough to get a sneak peek of the authentic Thai food served up by Chef Rod. Everything was very good, our favorites being the Kaegn Khiao Wan (green curry served over rice) and for dessert, Bua Loi (glutinous-rice balls in coconut milk).
Make your reservations now and happy new year!
