Celebrity chef David Thompson dishes up surprisingly down-to-earth Bangkok street food at his first foray into casual dining
Admittedly, there are certain expectations that came with Long Chim even before we had a taste of its contemporary Thai plates. The new celebrity restaurant is, after all, the brainchild of internationally acclaimed chef and cookbook author David Thompson, whose fine-dining spot Nahm in Bangkok topped Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants last year.
