About the restaurant
Hug Chiangmai welcomes visitors with open arms to their restaurant on Watsons Road in Newcomb. They are perfect for anyone willing to embrace the flavours of Thai cuisine, with a menu that is an introduction to the food of Southeast Asia, as well as an extensive specialities that will keep aficionados Geelong-ing for more. They are open every day except Monday from 5pm til 10pm, so clinch a table now by booking ahead.
Going for a Thai hug could be construed in plenty of ways, but at Hug Chiangmai, you’re sure of a warm, welcoming embrace. Warm may not be the word to describe some of the Thai specialities that they serve: Southeast Asian food is notorious for packing in more burns than an evil millionaire and a Scottish poet at a fire-eating contest. Head over for a fiery feed in Geelong’s Newcomb district and you’ll not be disappointed, although not all their dishes are hotter than the sun.
Thai cuisine is based on four key elements – spicy, sweet, salty and sour – and balancing them out is the key to a great Thai kitchen. At Hug Chiangmai on Watsons Road in Newcomb, they balance flavours like a tightrope walker carrying bags of crisps, so you know that when you order from their extensive menu, you’re going to get something good. Asian soups, jungle curries and a superb range of seafood are the specialities here, and the good people of Geelong know it: you’ll need to book a table to secure your seat.
