This festive season, forgo the traditional Christmas turkey with all the trimmings and the mundane mince pies because Giggling Squid, the fun and innovative family of Thai restaurants, will serve up a plethora of dishes all served with a hint of warming spice and all things nice!
Available within their 22 restaurants nationwide (with more opening in the New Year). You can be sure to celebrate Christmas with family, friends or colleagues, whilst not eating another Christmas turkey dinner.
Giggling Squid // Christmas Lunch Menu
The Giggling Squid Christmas lunch menu (£20.95 per person) includes highlights such as the aptly named bags of gold; filled with tender chicken with finely chopped vegetables sprinkled with a hint of spice, wrapped and lightly fried to perfection. The grilled garlicky prawns are also destined to be a hit, with easy-to-peel shells, served in a beautiful Thai garlic sauce that is both moreish and delicious.
New main options include tasty Thai-style pork hock; cooked slowly until tender in a lovely Thai gravy and served with stir-fried Tenderstem broccoli. A winter green curry, made from Thai aubergine, butternut squash, and creamy coconut milk, offers a welcome vegetarian alternative to a nut roast!
For the perfect sweet hit, you can choose from impressive newcomers including malted honeycomb semi-freddo and prosecco and muddled berry cheesecake – well ‘tis the season.
Giggling Squid // Christmas Evening Menu
From 5pm, Giggling guests can indulge in the Christmas evening menu (£29.95 per person), and will be greeted with a cold, crisp glass of fizz on arrival. Exclusive evening dishes include the giant prawn satay grilled in mild spice and served with homemade peanut sauce and super fresh A-jard dipping sauce. Meat lovers need look no further than the beef rib Massaman served on the bone with baby onion, potato, carrot and sweet, nutty Massaman sauce; the combination of flavours truly do melt in your mouth. Oh and don’t forget the Pork ribs cooked in a three flavour sweet chilli sauce – guests are absolutely encouraged to get their fingers messy! The warm molten chocolate cake is a decadent dessert that you must find room for; after all, it does come with a touch of spice to ward off the cold at the end of the night!
