Outstanding creative meal by a wunderkind chef

I went to Le Du after several excellent meals in Bangkok, which is a foodie heaven. i was blown away by the creativity and the unusual flavours. Le du offers a terrific changing set menu from which to choose. For starters, I had the shrimp-pork ball with jasmine ice cream, intense and succulent. Followed by an adventurous ant larvae-in-fish-fermented sauce – it was unusual in texture and flavour, memorable. Then an interesting chicken dish and a finger-licking dessert. The staff are young and enthusiastic, and the open kitchen provides some theatrics. Chef Ton, a young Thai, was personally supervising. All in all, Le du was an eye-opener, and showing the way forward for fusion food
