KRAPOW MOO | ผัดกระเพาหมู
Our signature dish and namesake... A delicious spicy pork & basil stir fry, served on brown jasmine rice & runny fried egg.
Pad KraPow Moo is probably one of the most popular dishes in Thailand. It's a punchy stir fried dish made with pork, basil, chilies, onion and garlic along with a combination of soy and oyster sauce, it's the perfect one-dish meal over rice. If you have been lucky enough to visit Thailand and had this while you were there, then you know that nothing beats Pad KraPow Moo, except Pad KraPow Moo Gai Dow (adding the customary fried egg on top, of course!)
MOO PING | หมูปิ้ง
Succulent marinated pork chunks, served on brown jasmine rice, with mint and cucumber salad and served with our spicy and delicious nam jim jaew sauce.
Street food is one of the great things about living in or visiting Thailand, and Moo Ping is a delicious, ever-present in Chiang Mai. At seemingly any time day or night you can find a man with a mobile charcoal BBQ cooking this pork deliciousness. Small pieces of pork collar, marinated over night in a variety of Thai flavours, and cooked so the meat gets a nice char and caramelises, resulting in that lovely sweet glaze - but still amazingly juicy and moist.
GAI YANG | ไก่ย่าง
Marinated boneless chicken thigh portions, served on brown jasmine rice, with mint and cucumber salad and served with our spicy and delicious nam jim jaew sauce.
The awesome grilled chicken you smell on the streets of Thailand? That authentic street food Thai grilled chicken that will have you licking your fingers with each bite? We're talking about Gai Yang. A delicious, sweet and sticky grilled chicken that we marinate overnight in a variety of Thai deliciousness like coriander root, lemongrass and garlic, and then cook over a hot coal BBQ.
LAAB GAI | ลาบไก่
Fragrant minced chicken salad, with fresh chilli, mint, coriander and lime, served on a crunchy lettuce base.
One of the most famous dishes in Thailand and eaten absolutely everywhere is Laab - a zesty, fresh and vibrant mincemeat salad (in this case chicken but commonly made with pork, beef or duck), with loads of mint and other fresh herbs, shallots, toasted rice powder, dried chilli, lime juice and fish sauce. Full of protein and packed with nutrients and vitamins, you’ve got yourself a fresh & tasty salad that’s perfect in the warmer months (it's served cold) and for anyone wanting to enjoy Thai food without worrying about overindulging.
KHAO SOI GAI | สูตรทำข้าวซอยไก่
A spicy Burmese-influenced chicken, coconut & curry flavoured noodle soup served with pickled mustard greens, Thai shallots, chilli oil, coriander and lime.
Also available as a vegetarian option, instead of chicken (gai) served with deep fried tofu.
Northern Thailand's de facto signature dish, this classic coconut and curry-flavoured noodle soup is rich, creamy, and packed with uncompromising complex flavours from a slew of aromatics. It's spiked with a curry paste made of shallots, garlic, turmeric, spices and herbs, giving the famous dish its signature flavour. With tender chicken thigh (or deep fried tofu) in the coconut-y curry broth, along with a combination of boiled and fried noodles, a dish of amzing complexity and taste.
Much of northern Thai food confronts newcomers with exciting but occasionally challenging flavours. Not so Khao Soi. “It’s exotic without being weird and, most important, completely delicious.”
We source all our fresh ingredients locally. Our meat produce is all UK based and comes from Smithfields Meat Market, from J.F. Edwards. Our vegetables and herbs from New Spitalfields Market, and our Asian ingredients from See Woo and Thai Star Foods.
A Londoner through and through, travel junky Paul has visited over 45 countries in his time, and more to come. Having lived in Sydney and enjoyed the food scene there, and travelled extensively through Asia, he returned to the UK but simply could not get his Thai food fix.
A massive foodie and one who is always experimenting with flavours and techniques, alongside hours studying cook books - be it Sabrina Ghayour or Jose Pizarro - Paul's endless pursuit of the perfect dish is how and why KraPow LDN is part of London's street food scene today.
Rugby man and Lions fanatic, he works in the City Monday to Friday in FX and commodities, but this doesn't stop the early morning Smithfield Meat Market and New Spitalfields visits and countless hours of preparation needed for the stall.
Usually seen rocking the wok and cooking up a storm at the stall, Paul's love for the food is evident, the constant positive feedback is testament to that.
- Paul's nicknames are 'KP' (after the 'English' cricketer) and 'Handsome Bob' (after Tom Hardy's character in 'RocknRolla')
- His second favourite country to have visited (after Thailand) is Iran
Sydney born and bred, and self confessed coffee (and Thai food) snob, Rich is a foodie and loves the kitchen (check out Richie's Kitchen)
Having called London home for the best part of 8 years and working in Adland, food is something of a therapeutic escape from the daily grind.
Having seen the popularity of Street Food rise over the past few years, and having experienced the very, very early Street Feast at Haggerston, along with a fairly envious and salivating following of Dave Carter and Smokestak, when the opportunity arose to help Paul with KraPow LDN, he jumped at it, and has been there since day one.
From branding to the social accounts and comms, our digital experience, to serving up a Pad KraPow with the perfect runny fried egg, and being a stickler for the presentation of our food, Rich will be more than happy to serve you some Thai deliciousness.
- Rich has a few look-a-likes, most notably Johnny Depp, but also Joe Manganiello, Keanu Reeves, James Franco and the Blues legend, Frank Lampard
