Krua Supanniga by Khun Yai SomsieThailand/Krua+Supanniga+by+Khun+Yai+Somsie
 

Krua Supanniga’s approach to responsible and sustainable gastronomy is engrained in its identity. From day one, Krua Supanniga has aimed to deliver the dining experience that’s faithful to the values that Grandma Somsie and the Laorauvirodge family held. It begins from the selections of the staff for the restaurant; Krua Supanniga has made it a point to staff and train local people to love and serve patrons as though they were friends and family. The sourcing of the ingredients is done locally; every morning, chef Noi makes a daily visit to Khon Kaen’s fresh markets to procure fresh ingredients the same way Grandma Somsie did and taught chef Noi to do decades ago.

Occasionally, they serve special menus from which seasonally home-grown ingredients are available.

BOOK

The Chef and the Brigade


“Phajongkitt Laorauvirodge is Grandma Somsie Chantra’s eldest daughter. Krua Supanniga by Khun Yai Somsie is Phajongkitt’s passion project to always remember and pay homage to her mother’s home cooking which has lovingly nourished her family’s body and soul through the years. While Phajongkitt and Grandma Somsie were from Trat, they moved to Khon Kaen and became full-time residents when Phajongkitt got married and started her family there. Phajongkitt created a special, peaceful space in her Trat’s property that became Krua Supanniga by Khun Yai Somsie restaurant these days.

Restaurant’s head chef, Chef 'Noi' Samran Deesarapan got her start in the kitchen over 30 years ago when she began her informal training as a house chef for the Laorauvirodge family in Bangkok. Chef Noi’s culinary repertoire is a century-old legacy of recipes and techniques passed down to her from her teacher: Grandma Somsie Chantra—the matriarch of the Laorauvirodge family—whose Eastern Thailand’s heritage informed and inspired much of her cooking. Since the opening of Krua Supanniga by Khun Yai Somsie in 2009, Chef Noi has served as Executive Chef, working closely with the owners—Grandma Somsie’s daughters and grandchildren — to delight the restaurant’s patrons with Grandma Somsie’s home-cooked Thai tastes.”

Located in a quiet residential area of the city of Khon Kaen, Northeast Thailand, Krua Supanniga by Khun Yai Somsie sets perfectly within shady mature gardens. Family owned and run, they are keen to share their culture and traditions of their cuisine with the guests.

Sip a cup of Puer tea as you listen to the gentle ringing of chime bells and birdsong from the surrounding trees. Krua Supanniga by Khun Yai Somsie is renowned for its championing of rare Eastern Cuisine. A wonderfully vibrant and varied cuisine that is rich in herbs and vegetables, it really is quite distinct to the more well-known Thai cuisine but is a much loved and a firm favourite amongst Thai people. Based on the family’s grandmother’s own recipes, the home-style and delicious cuisine served here is not to be missed and will be a real highlight of your trip to Khon Kaen.
