From the team who brought us the always brilliant Café Hanoi and Xuxu Dumpling Bar comes Saan—Ponsonby Road’s newest Northern Thai restaurant. Set to become one of the best restaurants in Auckland, it’s headed by Chef Lek Trirattanavatin. Saan is an ultimate Thai adventure for the taste buds, with five different menu sections: tasty street snacks, smaller dishes (braised beef neck is really more delicious than it sounds), larger dishes a.k.a Jarn Lak, sides (homemade pork crackling!), and desserts.
