From My Menu

"Crispy ling cod, served in a caramelized tamarind and palm sugar sauce, is topped with eight different fried herbs and spices. The entire menu is delicious!"
Chef Robert Belcham reviews Grilled thai sausage & crispy rice salad at Maenam
$$$ | Thai
Kitsilano
"The spicy tang of these grilled fermented sausages and the textural contrast of the crispy rice and soft, fresh herbs make me very happy. I'm always left wanting more."

$$$ | Thai
Kitsilano
"I love the heat and tanginess of the broth in this hot and sour soup. By the time I am finished with the soup, I have a little sweat on my forehead and back. The warmth of the spices and heat come together deliciously."

$$$ | Thai
Kitsilano
