In pre-historic times, having someone share their sushi with you was considered a great honour. The same goes for today’s Groupon – an 18 piece Ume sushi platter at Thai Rak-Sa for yourself or to share with a very deserving friend who appreciates how great a sacrifice you’re making.The Ume platter consists of 2 tuna sashimi pieces, 2 salmon sashimi pieces, 2 prawn nigiri, 2 salmon nigiri, 4 california rolls and 4 dragon rolls all crafted into tiny works of fishy art that make taste buds go ‘weeeee!’
Thai Rak-Sa can only be described as a little patch of Thailand set in the heart of Gift Acres Mall, Pretoria. Expect sprightly staff, delicious cuisine and aromas of lemongrass, cilantro, ginger and fresh Thai basil sending warm greetings from the kitchen. From curries and sushi platters to scrumptious noodle dishes, soups and egg fried rice, it’s Thai cuisine at its finest. The food in itself is a great topic for conversation and is best when shared between friends, family or love birds. This platter especially makes for great sharing. The warm ambience lends perfectly to any occasion and makes for special moments straight out of an “Explore magical Thailand” travel brochure.
The chefs are the real deal – as authentically Thai as the dishes they prepare and ideas as fresh as the quality meats, vegetables and seafood they use. The kitchen is their playground where they use their finely honed skills to combine, mix, blend and test flavours and spices to perfection. Sweet is married with sour, soft mixed with crunchy and spicy intertwined with sweet, striking the delightfully perfect balance between East Indian and Chinese that’s so authentically Thai Rak-Sa.
Chopstick fact: Chopstick battles are famous in Belgium. These tournaments take place in Thai restaurants and the winner gets a choice of one of the restaurant’s tables or the welcome mat.
