When I booked the tickets for a fine dining Thai night, I was interested and excited but also slightly apprehensive.. Cornwall doesn’t have the greatest reputation for providing cultural foods quite right.. However I was ready to try something new so off we went.
We were sent the address which lead us to a private residential area in Truro. A beautiful house, might I add. We knocked on the door and were greeted by our host for the night Amy. Amy’s joy and enthusiasm both in her food and in general is something to be greatly admired and it was very contagious. I laughed a lot around her. While we waited for the other guests Amy showed us how to make a traditional Green papaya salad.. Great fun and tasted amazing. If this was a sign of things to come, then we were going to be impressed.
And we were!
With all the other guest in the building, we proceeded to some appetisers before moving to that table for several rounds of incredible authentic food. The menu was to die for!
Pork in filo pastry parcels, panang Curry, Tom Yum soup (with locally sourced seafood) chicken pad Thai. All so beautiful and handed out in such generous amounts! It’s a good job we came hungry. Even the desert blew me away, an amazing sweet rice dish with mango and ice cream and coconut. I was in heaven.
It would be pretty hard for me to truly explain to you, how much fun we had and how exceptional the food really was. It is something that you HAVE to try for yourself.. Honestly, Amy is a wonderful host and a brilliant cook and I would happy recommend her company Punk Thai to anyone!
I did a few pictures of the night, in between scoffing my face!
