"I like to read a mindless fiction book now and then."
The first Thai restaurant to win our coveted Restaurant of the Year could only have been Chef Angus An’s Maenam. When he converted his first restaurant, Gastropod, into the modern Thai room, he brought a nuanced, authentic take to the scene and the critical acclaim followed. “It’s not just the best Thai restaurant,” judge Anya Levykh said, “it’s a really great restaurant—a definitive restaurant.”
He’s hit it out of the park since with the restaurants that followed: Longtail Kitchen and Freebird Chicken Shack, bringing his excellence to the underserved New West dining scene, followed by Fat Mao Noodles in Chinatown and Granville Island’s Sen Pad Thai. Is it any wonder the busy chef likes to chill with a little Dan Brown in his down time?
