Casual Asian restaurant, Nonya, is set to kick things off with special cocktails, home-grown DJs, and a three-course Eastern tasting experience.
Nonya will match dishes from Northeast Thailand with Roku gin cocktails from Japan. Head chef, Gina Hopkins said: “I wanted to create a refreshingly authentic menu that you would expect to eat on the streets of Thailand. Everything we use is locally sourced where possible, authentically flavoured Thai, Malay and Chinese true to regions. Our ethos is centred around using the best quality Asian and local produce and this menu reflects that.
“This is our first intimate dining experience and we’re excited to kick off the Glasgow Cocktail Weekend with such an interesting event that matches Asian dishes with unusual cocktail serves.”
