My friend, Emily, invited me over to a soft opening of Bang Bar in West Seattle a couple of days ago. She has been talking about this place opening up for a couple of months now and I have been really excited since I heard the keywords: Thai Food, West Seattle, and California Avenue.
I did a little more research about Bang Bar and found out that Chef Jahn worked at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel (very awesome) and ran her own restaurant in Thailand. She is now working with owners Sudarat (Aom) Tiacharoenwat and Kay Fuengarom in order to bring thai food with a modernist flair to West Seattle. The modernist flair being their European inspired plating but the food keeps its Thai food traditions (old meets new as my chef at school would say).
The food I tried at the soft opening consisted of smaller bites of their larger plates and each one exploded with a ton of flavor…..so damn good. I can’t wait to go back and check it out. You should check it out when it opens this Friday (June 10th!).
