Nectar on a Plate!

We dined at the delectable Veya on Friday. Nestled half way up the hill on the road from Sandy Ground, this is a charming, elegant fine dining restaurant.

On Friday evenings the restaurant serves a Thai menu alongside its a la carte menu and Joe and I had been saying for weeks that we should go along to try it. Bangkokg was a rest and recreation destination when we lived in Dhaka, Bangladesh, and we were frequent visitors. We love Thai food and so wanted to try out Veya's.

Now we are kicking ourselves for having left it so long before sampling this menu!

It was well presented, delighting the eye and tempting the palate long before our taste buds were excited. The flavour combinations did not overpower the food and you could taste the individual ingredients in each dish. The choice of each course was imaginative, allowing guests to enjoy a shrimp and vegetable pancake with peanut dipping sauce as a starter, a curried chicken portion with coconut rice and mixed vegetables for entree and a cardomon creme brulee with pineapple for dessert. These all combined seductively to make this meal one of the best we have had in a long time.

We have friends coming to stay next week and have already booked a table during their time with us. We hope they will enjoy what this restaurant has to offer as much we do.
