“I first backpacked in Thailand in 1988, the whole trip was a culinary overload. I will always remember the charcoal grilled barracuda with red chilli nahm jim on Ko Pha Ngan. I love chilli and the punchy flavours in Thai food. Longrain food will be new for the Japanese palate for its freshness, attention to detail and balance.”
