Kevin Thornton for Camile

High-end collaborations are not just for the fashion world, and a leading Irish chef has teamed up with Dublin’s Camile Thai take-away chain to devise a brand new, exclusive dish.

Kevin Thornton, Michelin-starred chef and owner of Dublin's Thornton's Restaurant, has created ‘Kevin’s Mae Chan Chicken’ which is inspired by the street food in northern Thailand. The corn-fed chicken is cut into strips and marinaded in  a complex 12-ingredient mix. It’s then stir-fried with blanched crisp vegetables and herbs until finally adorned with sauce and served with noodles.

The marinade includes authentic Thai flavours of lemongrass, ginger and chilli, as well as refreshing citrus zest, cooling, sharp dill and fresh chive.

The Thai eatery has four locations, Dun Laoghaire, Phibsborough, South Circular Road and the newly-opened Rathmines eat-in kitchen branch.

“This is home delivered food at its very best, so why not make an occasion of it?” said Kevin Thornton.  “Warm some plates, light a few candles, and chill your favourite tipple. Any Asian beer would work well, or a light fruity white wine, such as a Chenin Blanc”.

A perfect first course would be Camile’s signature starter, Po Pia Sot, Thai rice paper rolls with fresh steamed Irish salmon, baby leaves, fresh mint, beansprouts, pickled ginger and a tiny hint of wasabi mayonnaise – served cold with sweet chilli dip for €5.50.

To try out Kevin’s dish, priced at €12.95, or any of Camile’s unique and flavoursome dishes, simply contact your nearest branch by phone or online ordering ( ).
