The Overview

Isaan food
, the incendiary cuisine of Thailand's northeastern province, has spread far beyond its rural origins. At Chachawan Isaan Thai and Bar in Hong Kong's trendy Sheung Wan neighborhood, the kitchen pounds up fiery laabs and som tums in immense mortars. Chef Adam Cliff earned his Thai culinary stripes in the kitchens of Nahm, in London, and Bo.lan, in Bangkok, before coming up with his own takes on favorites like whole salt-crusted fish. Though the restaurant is slightly more upscale than most of Thailand's Isaan places, it maintains a relatively laid-back vibe and a strict no reservation policy. As an added plus, Chachawan serves Thai-inspired cocktails infused with potent flavors such as galangal and kaffir lime.
