Date Published : 07 Nov 2017

After we found the best Middle Eastern, Indonesian and Russian comfort foods, we set out to explore the best Thai comfort food in Hong Kong. The distinctive flavours and vibrant colours of this cuisine can easily brighten up your day, while giving your tastebuds a wonderful treat! As temperatures start to drop, take a moment to go through this list of the best Thai comfort food in Hong Kong.


Tom kha gai @Koh Thai
Nothing screams comfort food more than warm, sweet and sour coconut soup. Koh Thai raises the bar of this traditional delicacy with coconut, lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves, mushrooms, chicken and fish sauce. The sweetness of coconut milk, paired with the citrusy flavor of kaffir lime and the textures of chicken and mushroom work perfectly to make the best soup of the winter season. 1/F Floor, J Residence, 60 Johnston Road, 31608535, http://www.kohthai.com.hk/


Moo Ping @Chachawan
Introducing Hong Kong to traditional food from the Issan region of Thailand, Chachawan is a buzzy, yet down-to-earth restaurant on Hollywood Road. One of its classic delicacies is the Moo Ping, a juicy, succulent grilled marinated pork skewers served with cucumber and ginger salad. The slight char on the outside combined with the juices of the salad and the meat make a delightful treat! 206 Hollywood Road, Sheung Wan, Hong Kong, 25490020, facebook.com/chachawan.hongkong


Pad pak-boongfai daeng @Krua Walaiphan
Made with a semi-aquatic, tropical plant called morning glory (or water-spinach), this ingredient is a staple in many Thai homes due to its nutritious properties. Krua Walaiphan uses it as a stir-fry with Thai garlic, chilli, fish sauce, oyster sauce and yellow beans, giving it a savoury, spicy flavor. G/F, Ko Wang Court, 29 High Street, Sai Ying Pun, 28041555, facebook.com/kruawalaiphan


Khao op nam limb @Ayuthaiya
If you’re sad that summer is no more, relive your sunny memories with this fresh, summery dessert at Ayuthaiya. Carefully prepared with sweet glutinous rice, coconut milk and fresh Thai Mango, this melt-in-your mouth sweet treat is a must try! Ayuthaiya adds a slightly colorful twist by using black sticky rice instead of white, giving the finished rice a deep purple color. This, along with the fresh yellow/orange of the mango and the creamy white color of the coconut milk is a treat for the eyes and tastebuds! 35 Hollywood Road, Central, Hong Kong, 31055055, ayuthaiya.com.hk

Wok-fried king tiger prawn curry @Thai Basil
For Thai comfort food in a modern, stylish and club-like setting, head to Thai Basil. The Chargrilled King Tiger Prawn in Yellow Curry comes highly recommended by the chef and includes grilled tiger prawn in a slightly spicy yellow curry. Pair it with jasmine rice or plain steamed white rice for a delicious, filling meal. Shop LG001, Pacific Place, Admiralty, Hong Kong, 25374682, maxconcepts.com.hk/thai_basil
