In search of the authentic taste of Thai cuisine in Dhaka? Already famous restaurant Laughing Buddha at a new location has opened its door to ensure both plentitude and pleasures for your palates.
With the desire to bring the real flavours of Thai food to Dhaka’s food enthusiasts, Nayeemun Nabi Azad and his partners decided to dive into the restaurant world. The launch of the restaurant on February 29, 2020 in the heart of Gulshan was pleasantly overwhelming. Laughing Buddha got a response from the guests that no one was expecting.
From families to small get-togethers, Laughing Buddha was the talk of the time for a while. However, all these changed since the lockdown started. The speed that Laughing Buddha was at slowed down. But not for long. After the lockdown was officially lifted, the restaurant is back to serve their guests with the same enthusiasm and dedication.
A menu that is just as versatile as their decor, Laughing Buddha has something for every taste bud. From traditional Thai curries to the unconventional mix of favours like pineapple lamb curry, the items will not disappoint you at all. To make your choice easier, here are some of the items from the menu that you simply can’t miss. One of the minds behind Laughing Buddha, Nayeemun Nabi Azad broke down the flavours for you here!
HOUSE SPECIAL TOM YUM FUSION
Taking the classic and flavorful Tom Yum soup of Thailand we have taken it 1 step further and integrated our own elements to create a fusion version of the popular dish. This soup features the intense tom yum broth which is infused with Thai herbs and carnation milk which is loaded with everything you can dream of in a soup namely Water Prawns, Squid, Crab, Soft poached egg and Crispy Chicken Breast!! A must-try item if you want a taste of Thailand in a bowl.
Khao Soi is a deliciously creamy and slightly spicy yellow curry dish unique to Northern Thailand, especially Chiang Mai. It will satisfy your craving for a Thai curry dish while still being delightfully out of the ordinary. What makes Khao Soi shine is its savoury curry broth. Made with a blend of yellow and red curry spices, coconut milk, chicken broth, soy sauce, and sugar, the ingredients are slowly simmered to develop flavour. Chicken drumsticks and thighs are typically slow-cooked in the broth and served as part of the meal.
LAMB SHANK RED CURRY WITH LYCHEE AND PINEAPPLE
Traditionally done with Roast Duck Breast, they have introduced their version of the most popular Thai curry with a twist. This dish features slow-braised lamb shank infused with whole spices which are then made into the classic sweet and spicy, creamy red curry with a bonus of lychee and pineapple for that sweet burst of flavour which comes to a delightful surprise in a curry.
SEAFOOD IN YOUNG COCONUT
Their signature seafood dish which infuses all the Thai flavours together to create a blend of mild yet super aromatic taste is a house special. Cooked with sweet chilli jam and coconut water, the dish is served in a young coconut. This is a treat for both the eyes and the tastebuds.
For the residents of Dhaka, Laughing Buddha can be an exquisite fine and dine experience with their friends and family. The chic ambience and impressive menu are sure to peak everyone’s interest high enough to make them come back knocking on the door of Laughing Buddha.
