Well see you later Saigon Sally, and hello to BKK – the newest Thai addition to the bustling Chapel St precinct.
Internally not much has changed to the layout, with The Commune Group taking advantage of the neon & industrial décor and fantastic centralized bar. The cocktail & wine list are appropriately flavoured, making it perfect for any Tinder date or catch up with anyone of desire.
The menu divides itself into an easy assortment of areas – Salads, Grill, Wok, Curries, Big Things, Sweet Things and the best part of the menu – the Favourites. This section has been reserved for BKK’s best of’s – betal leaf salad, fried chicken ribs, fish cakes and a green papya nest, most of which are served as part of the Feed Me Option for $59 a head.
This is a great option if you don’t want the trouble of deciding what to order. It starts with chicken ribs, fish cakes and pork skewers – all tasty pieces designed to wane the appetite. Up next: Southern-style curry, with kipler potato & assam; fried green papaya salad; and served with rice and roti bread to mop up all those delicious dribbles. And to finish, crispy crepes of mango & sticky rice ice cream along side chilli sugar donuts topped with palm sugar custard. A perfect way to end a meal made for the tastebuds.
If you were sad to hear of Saigon Sally closing, don’t fret. If you missed the sign on the way in you’d be hard pressed to notice the difference.
