Review on Farang London
Occupying a corner spot on Highbury Park and Northolme Park, Farong London is an award winning Thai restaurant that has picked up a Michelin Bib Gourmand and also featured in the National Restaurant Awards top 100. It's the brainchild of former Smoking Goat Head Chef Sebby Holmes, author of Cook Thai, the restaurant has taken over the stalwart Italian San Daniele del Friuli originally run by his stepfather. Farong, which means foreigner is just a short walk from Arsenal football ground, simply decorated with exposed brick walls and Thai artwork on the walls, there's also a small area at the front for al fresco dining.
The kitchen sends out an array of colourful dishes that proved so popular when it started out in 2016, at street food markets throughout London. Using British seasonal produce as well as authentic ingredients imported direct from Thailand, Sebby showcases contemporary Thai cuisine. The menu cruises its way through 'Miang goong' salted prawns, foraged fruits, pomegranate, apples toasted peanuts and coconut in a tamarind and palm sugar caramel, served within betel leaves before moving on to Prik néua, aged Swaledale butchers Belted Galloway crispy chilli beef silverside marinated in ginger, sweet soy, garlic and birds eye chilli, served with a hoi sin and black vinegar glaze, Richmond foraged wild garlic and Asian herb. Apart from the a la carte menu, there's also the choice of feasting and tasting menus, as well as a vegetarian and vegan option.
To accompany the food there's a concise wine list, as well as signature cocktails and beers.
