Chef Natalie Tangsakul is to refocus her Northern Thai restaurant concept Talad and launch an Asian-inspired deli in its stead later this month.

Tangsakul, who spent years working at Rosa's Thai Cafe before deciding to go it alone, had been set to launch Talad as a ‘perma pop-up’ restaurant in London's Chelsea back in April​, but was ultimately unable to open as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic. 

Now, however, she has decided to rebrand the business as Talad Deli, offering a range of Thai and Asian store cupboard staples alongside a selection of freshly-prepared ready meals and pastries.

Meals available to takeaway will include Thai-style curries such as hung le; isaan gaeng om​and ​nam ngiao. While the Asian pastry selection will feature pandan croissants; and passionfruit brownies.

The deli will also sell a range of homemade curry pastes and marinated meats; as well as a selection of seasonal fruits and vegetables.

As well as operating a click-and-collect service, Talad Deli will also be available for delivery via Deliveroo.

“When the lockdown started, I couldn’t get my hands on my usual weekly crop of Thai ingredients," says Tangsakul.  

"I couldn’t find them anywhere – all my usual haunts and markets were closed down overnight.  So it got me thinking 'why don’t I just do it myself', and Talad Deli was born. 

"I’m sad not to have been able to open a restaurant, but thrilled I’ve been able to adapt my offering and still get to tell the world about Talad.”

Tangsakul originally established Talad during a series of supper clubs held in the summer of last year.
