Lunch @ Le Spice Restaurant (Chiang Mai, Thailand)

Quick summary:

After trying Le Spice’s Thai food yesterday, I decided that I would try one of their Indian dishes today. So I ordered their briyani and it wasn’t disappointing. 

Yesterday I tried Le Spice’s Thai food and I must say that their Thai dishes were expertly cooked. I decided to return to Le Spice restaurant to try their Indian food because I had suspected that their Indian dishes would taste even better.

 When I arrived, the restaurant was empty. I went directly to the counter and ask how long it would take a make a briyani dish. They said five minutes. I said ok. 

In 5 minutes, the biriyani came.

Mint coriander raita, chilli sauce, and cucumber (kachumber?) salad.

For a briyani that was cooked in just 5 minutes, I must say that it tasted surprisingly delicious. I always thought briyani takes a lot more than 5 minutes to cook. Indeed, this was not the briyani I am used to eating. This was fried briyani cooked the “street food” way.

But it didn’t matter to me. I wouldn’t have noticed any difference in taste if this briyani was cooked for 3 hours or 5 minutes.

The dish was a result of a masterful blend of spices. Even though the chicken pieces were not marinated well enough, the perfectly flavoured rice made me very forgiving of the few deficiencies the briyani had.

I must have devoured the briyani in three mouthful gulps. Yes, it was that effortless.
