Food offering – Selection of new Busaba dishes following Executive Chef Jude Sangsida’s recent month long trip to Thailand

What to expect – “The Busaba Songkran pop up will look like a ‘deconstructed’ version of Busaba. Many of the elements familiar to our loyal customers will still be there, but people should expect something fun and quite different.” Development Director Joel Falconer
Hashtag – #BusabaSongkran
What is ‘Songkran’
Executive Chef Jude Sangsida explained “Songkran is a time to renew, refresh and cleanse. Part of that is water, so in Thailand we have a big water fight! It’s humid and steamy, we find the nearest bucket or buy water pistols and go out into the streets and play.”As water fights in London during April are best avoided, Chef Jude has been busy developing new dishes to commemorate Songkran.
The team at Busaba are very excited to work with Fairground on the opening weekend of the new venue, from Street Feast founder Dominic Cools-Lartigue that will quickly become a staple of the London summer scene. Busaba Eathai will be joined by Andy Oliver’s Som Saa and Yum Jungle in the Songkran Thai takeover of Fairground.
Busaba Eathai’s Songkran Festival will be on Sunday 13th April 2014 at Fairground.
Entrance to the event is free.
