Thailand is known for its stunning beaches, extreme hospitality and of course, street food. If a visit to the Land of Smiles isn’t on the cards, Maximal Concepts’ newest eatery and bar, Sip Song is a love letter to Thailand that brings the same liveliness and warmth to Hong Kong’s South side.
Sip Song’s menu is inspired by the childhood memories of Head Chef Nuch Srichantranon. Using simple techniques, the pillars of Thai cuisine and fresh ingredients, Chef Nuch recreates the comfort foods of his childhood for guests. Born in Thailand, trained in Australia and inspired by mum, he grew up eating in local-style cafes, snacking street-side in Bangkok and feasting on fresh seafood by the beach on the Southern coast of Thailand.
Food in Thailand is a combination of culture and lifestyle. It is a fast-paced city, hence why there are easy and delicious options everywhere. “Whether you are wealthy or not, everyone enjoys eating street food,” comments Chef Nuch.
All sauces at Sip Song (aside from soy sauce and fish sauce) and curry pastes are made in-house by Chef Nuch and his team. Sustainably sourced seafood and grilled skewers feature heavily on the menu, along with curries, moreish noodle dishes and desserts. A shared experience amongst family and friends, Sip Song serves up Sabai-Dee vibes and the flavours of Thailand next to sun, sand and sea. Here are some of the menu items that will transport you to the bustling night markets and the hidden streets of Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Phuket and beyond.
