Songkran is unmistakably the biggest festival in Thailand. For Thai people, it marks the time for New Year, a chance to celebrate, to reunite with loved ones, and to cherish the pride and joy they have as a Thai. Songkran brings people together, and there is no better way to celebrate the get-together than through the dialogue of food.
Chef Cake, Phuket Thongsodchareondee, of Miami’s staple Cake Thai Kitchen is happy to present his vision of Songkran this year. Known for his no-nonsense Thai-style street food he serves at his 79th Street spot, Chef Cake is hosting a Songkran celebration at his latest venue, Gaijin Izakaya. To him, food is best enjoyed sharing among friends, families, and those held dear. And Miamians, you are all welcome to his party.
Guests can enjoy their choice of six dishes, including small bites, dessert, and rice—a central component to Thai cuisine. Full menu to be updated soon!
About Chef Cake, Phuket Thongsodchareondee:
Cake grew up in a resort island in Thailand, acquainting himself to cooking since early age at a family hotel business. After he moved to Miami, he soon found direction under Makoto Okuwa and trained under him at his namesake restaurant for four years. Cake then decided to venture out on his own, opening a little Thai haunt in MiMo neighborhood called Cake Thai Kitchen, which has gathered him many accolades, including Best Thai Restaurant 2015 from Miami New Times, One of Eater 38 (best restaurants in Miami), and StarChefs’ South Florida Rising Star. With lingering passion for Japanese cuisine, he finally opens Gaijin Izakaya in July 2017, fulfilling his dreams to own a fun, rigidity-free izakaya with high quality food and great selections of beverages.
