Ekachai King's Cross
- No reviews.
Ekachai is bringing South East Asian Hawker food to King's Cross.
Their fifth location after sites in Liverpool Street, Wandsworth, Oxford Street Selfridges and Flat Iron Square, the restaurant is all about street food focused around wok-cooking. Their philosophy is Wok Hei, which means ‘breath of the wok’: a measure of skill for chefs where they impart the flavour of the wok into dishes.
The menu hails from Hong Kong, with dishes like Hong Kong beef brisket noodle soup, made of braised tender beef brisket, fine egg noodles, white radish and pak choi; Malaysia, offering up Tempe Soup, made from vermicelli rice noodles in a vegetable broth, with fried tempe, tofu, spinach and beansprouts; and Thailand, serving Nau Nam Prik Pao, which is beef slices wok fried with a fiery Thai chilli paste with fine beans, lime leaves and dried shrimp.
