A Christmas taster with Chaophraya | Liverpool

Chaophraya, pronounced Chow-pry-a, is a Thai restaurant which offers authentic, signature dishes alongside a wide range of cocktails, wines and beers. Chaophraya have establishments dotted around the UK and I happened to join them at their Liverpool restaurant, for a Christmas taster evening. This August!

If you're anything like me then even the talk of Christmas will get you giddy, so it was quite exciting to be a part of the evening.

After being greeted and provided with a drinks voucher, myself and my blogging companions headed to the bar. There I chose a Elder-flower prosecco, it was generously sized and went down superbly.

While we awaited the Christmas tasters, I soaked up the ambient lighting, atmosphere and beautiful Thailand inspired decor. I can only imagine how much cosier it would feel inside Chaophraya, as the dark cold nights draw in.

I was surprised by how many vegetarian options they had to offer us, I'm a reducatarian, which means that I'll try to limit my meat intake and enjoy vegetarian food too. There was sumptious sweet potato bites and tantalising vegetarian tacos which left you wanting more.

Aside from that, we also tried chicken satay, which was really tender and full of flavour. All of the food samples were presented well and 
I think Chaophraya know how to please a crowd.

Next we joined in for a spring roll demo and cocktail making masterclass, both of which rounded off the night perfectly.
