Soi 7, a modern Thai restaurant/bar and the brainchild of foodie virtuosos in the industry has recently opened in 57 Wyndham Street, above Hong Kong's famous Lan Kwai Fong district. It is being met with tremendous success by its offering of different flavours to traditional Asian dishes. Using influences from Thai Cuisine, the venue has transformed restaurant staples by giving it their personal flair in hopes to provide a truly unique experience.
The name of this establishment pays tribute to a classic hotspots idea in Asia as the word ‘Soi’ means ‘street’ or ‘road’ in Thai. The wood and brick walls are coated with Thai iconography such as elephant decals and old school movie posters to postage stamp place mats of neighbouring Asian locations to cultivate a modern Asian feel. The vintage industrial style décor of the venue is a wink at history by featuring Edison style bulbs and bunker pendant lights. Walking into the venue is instantly met with a smooth playlist of music that beat with the tempo of its environment.
The menu is vibrant with a whole palate of different flavours ranging from sweet and sour to a variety of hot spices. The ‘Laughing Bull’, a popular Soi 7 dish is homage to the Thai favourite ‘Crying Tiger’. It is cooked with a sous-vide method for twelve hours,It really shows to the amount of dedication and devotion to the art of cooking it strive to provide for our guests.
For customers looking for dishes with a twist, the Krapow Burger redefines the time-honoured classic with it’s red pepper brioche bun. The Thai inspired menu is the creation of Arata Chankhong or "Khun Sen" as she is known originally from Songkhla in the South of Thailand. Khun Sen has travelled extensively and has had the opportunity to work with some of the top chefs in Bangkok such as award winning chef Ian Kittichai of the Issaya: Siamese Club. Sen will only use fresh products and imports sent every day directly from the markets in Ayutthaya, Bangkok to ensure authenticity in the menu. She tells, “The food is the story. A fresh take on a common dish is a fascinating adventure in itself and begs to be experimented with by the taster.”
As with the food, Soi 7 displays an abundance of drinks that carry their signature style. Bevies of specialty cocktails feature zesty highlights and are accentuated by Asian spices. The Mango Chili Martini for example starts smooth but subtly packs heat; while in keeping with Thailand's sweet and sour flavours, the Tamarind Martini is both candied and tart at the same time. Soi 7 desires to attract a huge crowd in its future by soon offering event driven nights such as Mojito Mondays and Taco Tuesdays. It hopes to update classic Thai to the Modern Hong Kong lifestyle, where the venue and the food are in sync with its customers. Soi 7 opens at 11:30am everyday while closing at midnight Sun-Wed and 02:00AM Thurs-Sat
