Isaan Food

The Northeastern area of Thailand is known as Isaan region. Around 21 million Thai's are home to this part of the country, which happens to be famous for it's cuisine! Isaan food is renowned for its pungent sauces, spicy chillies, and unusual proteins.

Family gatherings are a huge part of the Isaan culture and food is always present.  Meals are often leisurely periods of time to enjoy eating Thai food and times to socialize while eating an array of dishes.  Sticky Rice is the staple and an abundant form of energy in Isaan.

Isaan Sunday Menu


Kap Klaem

Thai Style Tapas

'Kap Klaem' or 'beer snacks' is a quintessential Thai pastime. While a cool beer of glass of wine is always welcome, four us it's just not complete without something to nibble on. Food lovers to the core, our 'Kap Klaem' includes such delicacies as Peanuts with Tom Yum herbs, Thai Chicken Wings, and Deep Fried Spicy Meatballs. So forget dusty old packets of peanuts and get your 'Kap Klaem' on at The Old Tom.

To give you the chance to try as many flavours as possible, all of the dishes on the 'Kap Klaem' menu are tapas size. We recommend to order one or two dishes for yourself or order at least five dishes if you're feeling a little hungry or to share with friends.
