Maenam hosts Toronto’s Jeff Kang from Canis, and Vancouver’s Hamid Salimian

Wednesday, November 8th, 2017


1938 West 4th

Limited to 48 guests (family style seating)




Maenam (named 2016’s Best Restaurant by Vancouver Magazine) is rooted in balancing intense fresh flavours with seasonal ingredients and locally sourced products, while always considering the context within which authentic Thai dishes would traditionally be enjoyed. With inspiration found in continuous travel, the menu at Maenam is ever-changing but always served with Thai flare and enjoyed in its traditional context, whether family style dining or riffs on Thai street food.

Jeff Kang subscribes to a philosophy, which he calls “bistronomy”. Inspired by the bounty of Canada, his dishes highlight fresh and seasonal produce, honouring the profile of the ingredients by creating simple and accessible dishes. Jeff Kang is the chef on everyone’s palate in Toronto, gaining critical acclaim at an alarming pace – and if you’ve had a meal at Canis, it’s not hard to see why. From being named one of the best restaurants in Toronto by TorontoLife, to TV/ radio personality and food writer Pay Chen saying that the chicken liver at Canis was the best thing she ate all year…

Never far from the vanguard of modern Canadian cuisine, Chef Hamid Salimian is an in-demand consultant for numerous restaurant groups, while acting as a contributing culinary expert for top broadcast media outlets.
