MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Bib Gourmand: good quality, good value cooking

Husband-and-wife Chefs Ohm Suansilphong and Kiki Supap are behind KRU, which is Thai for "guru." Indeed, you will get a lesson in traditional Thai dishes albeit ones that have been spruced up in a decidedly contemporary way. Sleek and airy, the interior is equally of-the-moment with exposed brick walls and ductwork along with cement tiled floors. First up? An invigorating salad of multi-colored cauliflower "pla" dressed in chiles, lime and fish sauce. Khai phra arthit, or a rice omelette that is equal parts fluffy and dense, is further proof that the simplest ingredients often are best. Thai dip is a smoked whitefish relish with anchovy, shrimp paste and coconut cream, but for a mind-blowing modern (and vegan) spread, order the olive lon.
