Jeow Jeow’s home is in the lovely Craft Beer Co. Limehouse.

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 amazing dishes they experienced along the banks of the mighty Mekong river in Laos and Thailand. It’s spicy, punchy, zingy and herby. The flavours are more river and jungle than coconut and palm trees.

As well as mounds of sticky rice and jeow dipping sauces, expect fried chicken wings gai tod with Lao BBQ sauce, springy spinach leek + chive dumplings, slow-braised shin of beef tom khem, Dorset trout fillets in palm sugar chilli dressing, sai oua hot and sour sausage patties with peanuts and wrapping leaves plus great value bundles for 2 to share.

“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
