Thai-Chin Mansion turns 108



Angie Thien for "When in Events"
August 06, 2011

The Thai-Chin Mansion has seen much in its 108 years of existence.  It stands at one of the busiest intersections in our fair city, remaining mostly unchanged despite the steel and glass structures that dominate the area.  Before becoming the Blue Elephant Cooking School and Restaurant, the building was once known as the Bombay Department Store.  During World War II, it was made the Imperial Headquarters for the Japanese Army, and today the manor belongs to the Thai-Chinese Chamber of Commerce.

To commemorate the structure's 108th year anniversary, The Blue Elephant's owner, K. Nooror Somany Steppe created a menu inspired by the national cuisine of the mansion's previous owners.   A few examples include the Japanese inspired Prawn Sushi Nam Prik Phao Plaa Yang, which is made of prawns, rolled in par boiled rice and served with a homemade dip of grilled fish & roasted chilli paste. For China, there is the Dim Sum with Foie Gras and Chicken, a steamed wonton stuffed with minced chicken and foie gras, flavored with truffle oil and the spicy delight—Szechuan Prawn.  With her roots cooking in the Taj Hotel in Bombay, K. Noroor knows her Indian cooking, and it shines on this menu with Kebab Sai Oua Chicken, Vegetable Samosas, Lamb Kuruma, and Mutton Biryani.  A few stand-out items include the Chilli Sorbet and a ginger-licous soup.

Not for the faint hearted—or tongued—the dishes stays true to their spicy exotic roots.  You can, howeer, choose to dilute the heat with a glass of the Blue Elephant's An Chan (THB 130++), a drink made from the butterfly pea flower.

The Thai-Chin Mansion Menu will be available throughout the month of August and September.  Diners can select dishes à la carte or opt for a set menu at (THB 1,150++)
