Chang Sensory Trails 2018 – ‘The Unexpected’
Chang Sensory Trails seeks to deliver ‘the unexpected’ through a bohemian mix of Thai food, art and music. So far, so good? Through a rich, multi-sensorial experience Chang Sensory Trails 2018 takes place in London on Saturday 12th May at the Last Days of Shoreditch venue. Ape attended last year’s Chang Sensory Trails 2017 which opened our eyes to the exquisite variety that Thai food, drink and culture possesses.
Thai Sweet Crispy Rice Cakes – crispy rice cakes
To expand on 2017 and for Chang Sensory Trails 2018, Chang has partnered with 8 Thai restaurants in London; Tawana, Bang Bang Soho, Patara, 101 Thai Kitchen, LAO Cafe, Rosa’s Thai Cafe, Thai Tho and Nipa Thai. With the head chef from each restaurant challenged to create a signature dish representing Thai home cooking. Ape visited Tawana at 3 Westbourne Grove in London where amongst other delicious courses we feasted on Moo Yang Jim Jael – a grilled pork loin Thai style dish. None other than the word ‘mouthwatering’ will do to describe how tasty this was. Of course, it was all washed down with a couple of bottles of cool, refreshing Chang Beer.

Celebrating Kinships Among Friends and Strangers
The owner of Tawana
Inspired by the Thai philosophy of Lamiat, Chang Sensory Trails 2018 celebrates kinships among friends and strangers. Which might sound forced but getting to know a few Thai people around this project it’s clear to see that being friendly and hospitable is inbuilt within their psyche. In a world where customer service is often lost, it’s not at Tawana in particular. And beyond customer facing service – the levels of service deepen into a passion for fine craftsmanship with their food.
