It's that time again, Six by Nico are set to launch a new menu and it is ideal for summer dining.

The Edinburgh and Glasgow Six by Nico restaurants are set to channel a warmer climate with their summer menu.

As the Catalonia inspired menu comes to an end, the team will transport diners further afield with the new menu, which will honour Thai street food.

Street food is one of the most important aspects of life in Thailand, where street vendors are in abundance in any town or city, offering affordable dishes.

Thai people see street food as a proud element of their culture and Bangkok’s world-famous street food scene offers an incredible variety of spicy, savory, and sweet treats cooked street side with recipes passed down through generations.

And this summer, Chef Nico Simeone and his team invite guests to try their take on Thai street food at Six by Nico restaurants in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Belfast.

Nico recently spent time in his kitchens with Cindy Sirapassorn, owner of the award winning Passorn Thai, learning some of her traditional Thai family recipes and understanding how integral food is to Thai culture and identity – from creamy curries and spicy stir fries to classic dishes that combine the hot, sour, sweet and salty flavours of Thai cuisine.

From Tuesday 9 July – Sunday 18 August guests dining at Six by Nico restaurants in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Belfast are invited to feast on a six course tasting menu inspired by the roadside hot spots of Thailand.

The dishes include: Steamed Dumplings – tempura tiger prawn, avocado, Thai salad and nam jim jaew; Pork Cheek – Hot and Sour Tom Yum, barbecue spring Onion, lemongrass and galangal; Summer Pumpkin Spring Roll – Thai green sauce, charred sweetcorn, pickled shimiji mushroom; and a dessert of Sticky Rice Parfait – Alphonso mango, sesame cookie, lychee and ime.

Chef Nico Simeone said:”Food plays a big part in Thai Culture and can vary from region to region. From the sticky rice and soups favoured in the North, to the liberal use of spices and herbs in the South, each course on our Thai Street Food menu is bound to get your tastebuds a-tingling.”

Open from midday, Tuesday through to Sunday on Hanover Street in Edinburgh, Finnieston in Glasgow and Waring Street in Belfast, each six-course menu will be available from noon to night and is available to book now.

The menu is priced at £28 per person with the option to enjoy an expertly selected wine and specialist drinks pairing for an additional £25 at each restaurant. As ever, there is a Thai vegetarian alternative available for every course, as well as ‘Thai Street Food’ inspired snack sides.
