First look: Six by Nico Edinburgh's new Thai Street Food dishes unveiled
As Six by Nico's Catalonia inspired menu comes to an end, the team will take diners further afield to sample the delights of Thai street food.
Bangkok is especially famous for its street food scene. The city sizzles with activity as locals gather around street stalls devouring curries or sitting at street-side tables enjoying each masterful chef’s specials.
Thai people see street food as a proud element of their culture and Bangkok's world-famous street food scene offers an incredible variety of spicy, savoury, and sweet treats cooked street side with recipes passed down for generations.
Chef Nico Simeone and his team are now inviting guests to dive deeper into the 'Thai Street Food' canon at Six by Nico in Edinburgh to offer a unique culinary experience inspired by the famed food stalls.
The top chef recently spent time in his kitchens with Cindy Sirapassorn, owner of the award winning Passorn Thai in Edinburgh. He learned about some of her traditional Thai family recipes and understanding how integral food is to Thai culture and identity - from creamy curries and spicy stir fries to classic dishes that combine the hot, sour, sweet and salty flavours of Thai cuisine.
