Jim Thompson is cooling down the summer heat with its enjoyable seasonal Khao Chae Set, available until May 31.



Dinners will be satisfied with the distinctive aroma and flavour of two-tone Sao Hai rice soaked in chilled jasmine-scented water. 

Based on royal court recipes, it’s served with a variety of scrumptious side dishes, such as Fried Shrimp Paste, in which only premium-quality finely ground shrimp is used, infused with rare finger root.

Stuffed Sweet Peppers are filled with shrimp and ground chicken, delicately wrapped in duck egg. 

Rice also goes well with Stuffed Shallots, containing mellow, sun-dried snakehead murrel.

Salted Fish Fritters are made from premium salted Indo-Pacific king mackerel, minced chicken and egg white.

Sweet Radish Saute arrives with coconut sugar, and Sweet Spotted Eagle Ray Saute is made with fine ray meat sauteed with fried onion. 

Also on offer are fresh vegetables and fruit, including green mango, cucumber and green onion. 

The delightful culinary journey ends with Jim Thompson’s signature Mango with Sticky Rice.

The Khao Chae Set costs Bt490 and is available at the Jim Thompson Restaurant and Wine Bar on Soi Kasemsan 2, the Jim Thompson Restaurant and Lounge on Surawong Road and Bombyx at Siam Paragon.
