Cha um

Cha-um [adj] is a Thai word which translates as Verdant in English. Recently compact pop up store resides in Vibrant Gump community mall. Gump community mall seems to be aligned in Pastel color scheme. Keep in mind that they do not have parking spaces at the moment if you are driving.

Cha um clearly depicts itself as a healthy hang out cafe located at center of the community mall. Menu consists of Salmon Donburi, salad, Thai cuisine and smoothies. I personally like the vibe of hanging out and having delicious healthy meal while feeling outside environment at the same time.

Salmon Donburi are beautifully presented. The texture of Salmon are fresh and contains no trace of fishy odor. The rice are served warmed which is an enjoyable texture.

Salads contains of various fruits from green apple, strawberry, orange, passion fruit, dragon fruit, blueberry, pomegranate, yogurt and granola. I like the idea that you get a different taste of each vibrant fruit from sour to sweetness.

Since I’m here for some business. I ordered a light lunch BBQ chicken thigh and Fettucine Salmon Cream Gogonzola.

BBQ chicken thigh – Tomato salsa, slaw & sesame 

Chicken are well seasoned and not too sweet as some BBQ sauce. The texture are still crispy and boneless. Tomato salsa are so fresh and green apple salad packs such an acidity.  This was a well-balanced menu for an appetizer.

Fettucine Salmon Cream Gogonzola – Seasonal mushroom, baked tomato, dill leaf & fume Gogonzola cream sauce

The texture of Fettucine are just perfect. Gogonzola cream are not too thick and salty. Still, salmon texture are little bit too dry for my taste.
