Sweet news: beloved Sydney mainstay Chat Thai is celebrating its 16th successful year — and what's a sweeter way to celebrate than with a brand-new range of dedicated desserts? Chat Thai OG Thaitown and Tokyo Lamington have teamed up to create tasty Thai-inspired treats to toast the restaurant's sweet sixteen.
The Haymarket staple has continually served up an enticing array of Thai cuisine to Sydneysiders at an affordable price point for years, spanning over six Sydney locales after growing a cult following. Chat Thai OG Thaitown has decided it is time to honour its achievements with an exclusive collaboration birthing an original and unconventional snack range.
By partnering with the experimental lamington brand, the much-loved Thai restaurant hopes to recognise achieving its milestone by bringing the iconic flavours of Thailand to Australians in a new and inventive offering.
"This collaboration is more than a fusion of flavours; it's a celebration of two culinary worlds coming together," said Pat Laoyont, owner of Chat Thai.
From Wednesday, September 20, the limited-edition birthday range will be available across three Sydney locations and Tokyo Lamington's Melbourne flagship outpost. The dedicated range will feature lamingtons inspired by Thai flavours alongside a range of savoury dishes combining a fusion of Chat Thai favourites and Australian classics.
"We are honoured to partner with Chat Thai, a name synonymous with authentic Thai cuisine, to create something truly special," said Adds Eddie Stewart, co-founder of Tokyo Lamington.
Among the seven lamington flavours on offer, you'll find Thai milk tea, a Khanom buaing (candied egg yolk) option, mango black sticky rice and a take on popular deep-fried pandan-flavoured ice cream. On the other hand, the savoury selection will star Chat Thai's famed Mussamun beef curry in the form of a golden, flakey pie alongside a herbaceous and chilli-forward larpb gai sausage roll and a tom yum mushroom quiche.
However, this collaborative effort is only available during September, so you'll want to get in quick to get your hands on one or more exclusive treats.
To find the limited-time birthday menu, hit up Chat Thai's flagship location or Boon Cafe in Haymarket or Tokyo Lamington Newtown from Wednesday, September 20 — the exclusive range will launch in Tokyo Lamington's Melbourne location later this month.
