Where to eat?

Have you heard of Mekhong? It is the name of a great river that lies between Thai-Laos border.

In 1941, it also became the name of Thailand’s first domestically produced branded golden spirit, as there was a dispute with the French concerning the border with Laos along the Mekong River.

Mehkong, a rum-liked Thai spirit, is distilled from around 95% molasses and 5% rice. This is best when mixed with ice. Due to its sweet beautiful taste and aroma, Mekhong is one of the common Thai drinks. It is used in many cocktail, especially sublime summer cocktail, “Thai Sabai”.
