THE AUTHENTIC THAI FOOD AT SOM SAA HAS BAGS OF FLAVOUR

Som Saa is a Thai restaurant that started as pop-up in Hackney in 2015. After running a successful crowd-funding campaign, it opened as a permanent restaurant in Spitalfields where it serves authentic Thai food from perennial favourites such as green Thai curry to papaya salad with egg and prawns.

Som Saa, 43A Commercial Street, London E1 6BD. Phone: 020 7324 7790

READ DIVYA SEHGAL’S STORY

How often do you go to a Thai restaurant and resist ordering the green curry? It doesn’t happen that often with me. But Som Saa, the hot not-so-new Thai kid on the block is pulling all the stops when it comes to authentic Thai dishes. You’ve probably walked past it loads of times if you are in and around Commercial Street in Spitalfields. With a fairly small menu offering delights like deep fried sea bass and smoked duck soup, Som Saa’s dishes have bags of flavour. Go there for a boozy lunch and eat to your heart’s content at this former fabric warehouse. Pop-ups turned restaurants are definitely having their day in the sun. Only in London!

If you’re one to follow the city’s hottest chefs and cook book writers and need their endorsements, you only have to look at your Instagram “discover” feed and see what the rage is all about. As someone who has had their fair share of green curries in London, I can definitely tell you that I will not be touching it at Som Saa. Because if the other stuff is so good, there’s no point in choosing your fall-back option, is there?
