TASTES OF SOUTHERN THAILAND – Massaman Nua is a cardamom-scented, slow-cooked Australian wagyu beef cheek that highlights the influence of Malay cuisine in this Southern curry. Rich and tangy but not too spicy, Massaman is unusual among Thai curries in that it doesn’t include curry leaves as part of the cooking process. Instead, spices and aromatics such as cumin, lemongrass and galangal are mixed with slightly sour tamarind to create an incredible base for a meat or vegetarian dish. Come try it at KOH Thai Kitchen, where our Southern-born Chef Jeab will cook her specialty dish for you.Details
