The third edition of the Chang Sensory Trails returns at the end of the month, and as part of the celebrations, a total of eight Singapore-based Thai restaurants will be showcasing quintessential Thai cuisine served up with with the Thai philosophy of ‘lamiat’, or ‘attention to detail and looking beyond the ordinary’. One of these restaurants is Long Chim at Marina Bay Sands, who will be cooking up three signature dishes specially for the trails.
Owned and run by Celebrity Chef David Thompson, Long Chim specialises in bringing traditional Thai street food to a new level, taking inspiration from the bustling street vendors and roadside markets of Bangkok and melding it with the glamour of Marina Bay Sands with its sleekly designed interior.
One of the dishes visitors can look forward to during the trails would be the grilled pork skewers, with aromatic, meaty cuts of skewered pork, thoroughly glazed with a flavourful sweet sauce.
Long Chim will also be serving up their version of fried chicken wings, its skin coated in a sticky sweet glaze from caramalised sugar & salty from fish sauce and well marinated. Succulent meat lies beneath the skin and makes for a great appetizer with your Chang beer.
The final dish Long Chim will be serving up during the Sensory Trails will be their Spicy Pork Rice Cake. A mouth watering dish that certainly would whet your appetite! The pork and rice cake is paired beautifully with a lime and fish sauce dressing. Certainly a dish with a sharp mix of tastes and textures. That’s sure to have you going for seconds!
While not being served up as part of the Sensory Trails, Long Chim still serves up a pretty mean Pad Thai, a simple but no doubt a definitive way of determining how good a Thai restaurant is. Long Chim’s pad thai is traditional, and is flavoured with a good mix of spices and flavours that bring the entire dish together.
If you’re ever dining at Long Chim, round off your meal with a sweet Banana Roti, fried to a crisp with sweet, melt-in-your-mouth banana lying between folds of pastry, making for a delightful finish.
For Long Chim then, ‘lamiat’ seems completely encapsulated in its attention to flavour and care with which each dish is crafted. Find Long Chim at the 2018 Chang Sensory Trails, alongside plenty more great Thai establishments to discover how you too can achieve ‘lamiat’ on this incredible gastronomic journey.
