Wednesday, November 5, Malai Kitchen will host a special “Thai Me Up” dinner as part of North Texas Beer Week. The evening will highlight Malai’s portfolio of house-brewed, Asian-style beers inspired by owners Braden and Yasmin Wages’ travels through Southeast Asia. Chef Paul Singhapong of CrushCraft Thai will join Wages to create a six-course dinner with beer pairings. This is actually what has been an annual event, and the most authentic Thai-inspired meal you can have in Dallas.
We have attended the last three, and always walked away inspired and tantalized. Notice the addition of “weasel coffee”.
