Longrain is a place I can’t help coming back to every couple of years. “Thai fusion” gets me everytime, but these guys are seriously gifted and have worked hard to perfect their offerings. The flavours are so fresh and every combination packs a punch. The cocktails are divine and the atmosphere is modern and trendy, too.
Amongst a few tasty delacacies we have tried and adored: the Betel leaf and smoked river trout (with peanuts, green papaya, peanuts and mint); the Cone Bay barramundi (with coconut broth, lemongrass, and galangal); the ‘Jungle Curry’ (with char-grilled beef, holy basil (why not?) and wild ginger); and caramelised pork hock (with five spice and chilli vinegar). All scrumptious and exploding with flavour.
Longrain’s main dishes are quite big and designed to be shared, banquet style, so it’s great to come with a group of friends so that you can try more of the equisite flavour combinations!
