Family Style Issan Dinner
With the seven of us going as a group, we went for quite a number of different dishes, all served in family style - just came up a little short of "sweeping" the whole menu. The portion of the dishes was decent, good enough for going around with everyone getting a fair share of food. Most of the dishes were spicy but not unbearably so, and I do love the bold flavors - a good kick of spiciness and acidity which brightened up the dishes served. Chachawan was known to serve the authentic Thai dishes from the northern region, known as Issan cuisine, best known for the liberal use of spices, especially chili.
I don't know why it took me so long to try this place but I think it won't take be too long to return. The food's casual but well-prepared and the setting was laid-back and comfortable, the type of place we can come back again and again for an easy meal.
