NaKorn Kitchen Celebrates Thai New Year April 13-24

NaKorn Kitchen Celebrates Thai New Year April 13-24

Songkran in Thailand has historically been meant for the Thai people to splash water on their family members and elders as a way of seeking good fortune. The Thai people have also used this event to pay homage to the images of Buddha. Today, the occasion has become mad play with water – water in buckets, water from super soakers and water from garden hoses – from people all along the streets. Chiang Mai province hosts the biggest water festival parade in Thailand, which includes statues being carried away from the local temples to be paraded along the streets to be respectfully watered by all. 

At NaKorn, specials for Thai New Year week (April 13-23) will be:
  • On the “Bites” (appetizers) menu: Crab Cake Bite, with a mixture of crab meat, pork, taro and water chestnuts, wrapped in soy paper and served with beet infused lotus root, plum, spring greens and house made plum gastrique.
  • On the “Meat” (meat entrées) menu: Braised Chicken with spicy roasted chili curry, kaffir lime leaf and a 65 degree egg, with tamarind-palm sugar dressing, crispy shallot chips, cilantro and spring veggies.
  • On the “Drinks” menu, the “NaKorn 75.” Lemongrass infused Blaum Bros. Lead Mine Moonshine, fresh lemon, palm sugar, coconut-lemongrass tincture and prosecco served in flute.
  • Half off Singha and Chang beers by the bottle.

Where: NaKorn Kitchen, 1622 Orrington Ave.
When: April 13-23

Phenomenal virtuoso Jeffrey Biegel debuts with the Evanston Symphony Orchestra, led by Music Director Lawrence Eckerling, in the blockbuster of all piano concertos, the Third Concerto of Rachmaninoff. The 1996 film Shine was built around the struggles of pianist David Helfgott with the mental and musical challenges posed by this epic concerto. Prokofiev’s concert suite, drawn from his 1934 score for the Soviet film Lt. Kije, is a long-time favorite, and the program concludes with another concert suite prepared by composer John Williams from his blockbuster Star Wars.
