曼谷最知名的米其林餐廳Le Du主廚Chef Ton又有餐飲新作「發酵炒粿條」”Mayrai pad thai”之所以取這麼特別的名字,是想要帶給食客們在餐飲全新的體驗:自然酒與改良版泰式街頭小吃的結合.

“取名為發酵,是因為想把自然酒的好處,推廣讓更多人知道.”也是創辦人之一的Tam(chef Ton)的弟弟表示,May Rai這個在泰文字面帶有詩意的名字,意味著在自然發酵酒的選擇上,都是經過精挑細選.
不過有米其林主廚親自坐鎮的May Rai,美食當然是強項!只賣79泰銖的招牌菜 Pad Thai(泰式炒粿條),堪稱是東南亞米其林主廚研發,cp值最高的料理,由ChefTon親自調配的辣度佐以羅望子醬料,拌入自家製的泰式河粉,精緻版的pad Thai令人垂涎欲滴.
事實上May Rai坐落在曼谷極有歷史價值的塔田區(Tha Thien),緊鄰大皇宮,臥佛寺的景緻不說,May Rai正位在通往昭披耶河邊的小巷,這裡很有早期貴族獨享河畔風光的味道.
距離May Rai只有咫尺之遙的旅館「Sala Rattanakosin Bangkok」,其頂樓面河的無敵景致,為曼谷數一數二.在May Rai帶瓶紅酒,趁華燈初上之際,與醉人夜景乾杯,也是一大享受.
