Chef and owner of Chabba Thai and Yanako, Moon Krapugthong, was named perfectly. Because now she is shooting for the moon.
While Chabba Thai is getting an extreme makeover (this one’s a doozy – it will expand into the old Manayunk Main Street Market), Yanako is holding the fort down with her amazing, soulful dishes and still serving up Chabba Thai favorites in the meantime.
And from Dec. 16th to 31, a delightful 4-course prix fixe holiday menu is available which includes both Japanese (from the kitchen and sushi bar) and Thai dishes. The price is only $40 per person and includes an appetizer, soup or salad, an entree and dessert.
To test and tout this great deal, we were in for a little treat when visiting Chef Moon starting with some lightly salted edamame and the always-addicting Thai iced tea. Next up was the fluke ceviche with notes of citrus and a slight tang tantalized the taste buds. Yanako is known for its fresh, never-tasted-sushi-like-this-before service so it’s no surprise the fluke was fresh, clean and delicious.
