The GOODS from Maenam

Vancouver, BC | Love is in the air at Kitsilano’s Maenam restaurant, where executive chef Angus An will be preparing Thai cuisine that offers Valentine’s Day variety in sweet, sour, salty and spicy fusions. First and second course pickings include kanom krok, crispy cupcakes with curry and crab, latiang, chicken and prawn in golden egg nets, and creamy, hot soups marinating prawns or chicken—you choose.

Single or spoken for, Maenam’s main course medleys provide exactly the comfort we crave on V-Day: yum moo wang, a sweet, caramelized pork belly salad with coriander and toasted coconut; pat prik king neua, stir-fried beef short ribs cooked in red curry paste, thai basil and wild ginger; and two types of curries—geng bpa muu, slow roasted organic pork shoulder with fresh heart of palm, baby corn, wing bean and holy basil, or geng gola hoi, a rich and aromatic southern-style curry served with grilled scallops. Parties of two choose one salad, one stir-fry and one curry as their main.

In signature style, Maenam’s desserts put the “sweet” in Saint Valentine with dark chocolate pot de crème—sea salt, tamarind tuile, and tamarind semifreddo; and their vanilla passion fruit pannacotta, a passion fruit jelly with passion fruit ice cream and cashew praline.

To compliment the specialized menu, guests will select beverages from an inspired cocktail card, informed beer list and an extensive offering of wine. Details after the leap…

Maenam’s Valentine’s Day menu is priced at $55 per person. For full menu details, click here.
