The food at Baan Sakulthong may be a far cry from the authentic fare served in Portugal, but the restaurant is a testament of how the Portuguese greatly influenced Thai cuisine. The lineage of the Sakulthong family can be traced back to the Portuguese settlers who migrated to the Kudeejeen quarter from Ayutthaya in the 18th century, hence Baan Sakulthong churns out dishes with Portuguese influences following the recipe of Chawee Sakhulthong, the owner’s great-grandmother. A set menu consists of three Thai-style appetizers, followed by five main courses with Portuguese accents and one dessert. Menu highlights include traditional appetizers such as jeeb tua nok (bird-shaped Thai dim sum) and chor muang (a purple chewy treat stuffed with savory filling). The signature main dish is a Portuguese-style kanom jeen, a filling noodle dish that tops rice vermicelli with minced chicken red curry mixed with coconut cream.
