Last night I was lucky to be treated to a taste of the new menu at Giggling Squid, Wimbledon. The restaurant, which is a favourite amongst locals, offers an authentic Thai cuisine cooked by authentic Thai chefs in all their restaurants and there really is no aspect of dining there that disappoints. From the exquisite décor, to the friendly-yet-polite service, and then to the deliciously delightful food, Giggling Squid has it all.
And the new menu doesn’t disappoint. The evening began with a selection of starters, including the classics spicy prawn crackers, pork dumplings, and spring rolls. My particular favourites, that I’ll definitely be going back for, were the salt and pepper squid in a light crispy coating and the crunchy duck and lychee bites; both highly recommended! For the main course I chose the Rising Star Red Duck Curry, juicy confit with pretty star fruits and pea aubergine in a red curry sauce, which I had with a side of jasmine rice. When asked how it was there was only one word I could find: “special”. I really do think I chose well, the only problem I have now is that I’m so in love with this dish will I try any of the others?!
The new menu was definitely a hit with the eight influencers and food bloggers sitting around the table, and I’d urge anyone who loves authentic Thai cuisine to book a table there today!
