Tiny Thai is a brand new pop-up events and catering company run by Kae Baramee, a cook at 100 Acres at Hotel Henry who is originally from Thailand and started cooking with her family at 11 years old.
Tiny Thai specializes in traditional Isan recipes using local ingredients whenever possible. The company will also soon offer catering and cooking classes. For more on Tiny Thai’s story and services visit tinythai.biz.
On the menu you’ll find Gai Yang, meaning “grilled chicken” in Thai, originates from the Northeastern Isan region. A popular street food in Bangkok, it is marinated in garlic, lemongrass, cilantro roots, Thai soy sauce, and fish sauce and then grilled. It is served with sticky rice and spicy dipping sauces.
Tiny Thai will also serve Chor Muang. Using a recipe dating back 200 years to King Rama II, these beautiful sweet and savory steamed dumplings were originally served to Thai nobility. Their vivid purple color comes from the butterfly pea blossom flower and they require care in shaping each one by hand. They are topped with coconut milk and eaten with fresh vegetables and raw chili pepper.
