A (mostly) Mekong Diner

JEOW JEOW (pronounced to rhyme with plough plough) is loosely based on chef Tania Steytler and food writer Bill Knott’s travels in Southeast Asia. In particular the flavours and dishes they experienced along the banks of the mighty Mekong river in Laos and Thailand. 

As well as mounds of sticky rice and jeow dipping sauces, expect several kinds of laap, a dry, herby and spicy salad; fried chicken with charred chilli jam; home-made hot and sour sausage; and super-spicy devilled lamb faggot with tamarind broth.

Tania was head chef at the critically-acclaimed Snaps & Rye on Golborne Road; Bill is a former chef who now writes The Gannet restaurant column in the FT’s How To Spend It magazine.

Their first residency is in the heart of Soho at the Sun & 13 Cantons, a pub with a great track record as an incubator for new restaurant talent. Catch them there until mid-September.

“A stonking lunch… a love letter to the food of the Mekong. Deep, dark Ox cheek curry; crisp, lightly battered trout with fennel and sugared chilli dressing; pineapple fritters with palm sugar caramel. Go.”
Jay Rayner

“In a country where Thai food is so often so bland (and Laotian food near non-existent, save the lovely Lao Café), JEOW JEOW is a bracing blast of brow-beading, lip-smacking, palate-cheering delight.”
Tom Parker Bowles
