PERTH | When owners of popular Thai pop-up Bangkok Jump Street, Wanwipar “Dao” Thanasothorn and Punchita Wangpaichitr, announced that they were opening a bricks and mortar restaurant in the former Old Crow site in Northbridge, expectations were high. The duo have built a reputation for serving up some of the best Thai food in Perth, and I was keen to see what the new restaurant, Baan Baan, had to offer.

Baan mean home in English, and “Baan Baan” roughly translates as comfort and simple. That is, it encapsulates the simple pleasures of home. The food at Baan Baan reflects this. A menu that dances through Thailand’s diverse regions, influenced by the food that Dao and Punchita grew up with.

The chargrilled pork neck skewers marinated in coconut (pic one) come over from the pop-up, and are fantastic. Succulent, flavour packed offal used to great effect. Also great is another pork offal dish – sticky BBQ pork cheek with tamarind sauce and green salad (pic two). Again, much more succulent than you’d get with more familiar pork cuts.

For something less porky, try the crispy Thai pancake (pic seven). It’s filled with coconut, bean sprouts, radish, mung beans, and cucumber relish, and has a wonderful texture and flavour. The betel leaf wraps (pic six), with fried mackerel, ginger, lime, toasted coconut, and peanut lime sauce meanwhile, give a wonderful burst of light freshness. Also light and tasty are the Thai style mussels. Fresh Western Australian mussels in a lemongrass, kaffir lime, and Thai basil broth. Delightful.

For drinks, it’s a mostly Western Australian selection of wine, craft beer, Thai inspired cocktails, mocktails, and non-alcoholic drinks. Try the Thai Garden – it’s a fragrant mix of lemongrass, butterfly pea, palm sugar, lime, and vodka.

The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
