Rivière KWAI, quand la Thaïlande s’invite à table

Rivière KWAI, quand la Thaïlande s’invite à table

Peu adepte de la cuisine asiatique (souvenirs de quelques déconvenues suite à différents restos Chinois et autres) c’est sans trop d’illusions, malgré les éloges à son sujet, que je réservais une table au Rivière KWAI, spécialisé dans la nourriture thaïlandaise. Et pourtant, bien mal m’en aurait pris de passer à côté de cette sublime adresse.


Bien situé, en plein cœur du 1er arrondissement lyonnais, on se laisse rapidement séduire par la salle du restaurant. Sobre, tables et chaises en bois, décoration bien loin des habituels clichés asiatiques : l’adresse fleure bon l’authenticité et la simplicité.


Le midi, nous avons droit à la formule entrée/plat/dessert pour la somme (raisonnable) de 18€. Pour entamer ce repas, je me laisse tenter par la soupe de crevettes à la citronnelle. Relevée à la perfection (attention aux estomacs fragiles), les crevettes fondent en bouche tandis que les différentes herbes (persil, ciboulette) font danser mes papilles. Les champignons sont croquants juste comme il faut, histoire de rajouter encore plus de pep’s à cette belle entrée.


Vient ensuite le plat. Pour une première, mon choix s’est porté sur un wok de bœuf et riz. Une fois encore l’assaisonnement est parfait, le bœuf bien cuit et le riz se tient bien. Un « sans faute » donc. En dessert, j’opte pour du raisonnable avec une salade de fruits frais mais n’hésite pas à goûter le fondant au chocolat et piment de mon amie. Si l’arôme de tête est emporté par le chocolat, celui de fin de dégustation l’est par le piment qui m’embrase la gorge. Tonique le dessert !


Les trois raisons d’aller à Rivière KWAI :

  • Le restaurant a su convaincre une réfractaire à la gastronomie asiatique telle que moi, c’est pour dire !
  • On ne ressort pas avec une odeur de graillon collée aux vêtements.
  • L’établissement est placé à deux pas de Pop & Shoes, histoire de faire du lèche-vitrine post resto…
En bref : de belles saveurs authentiques dans un cadre apaisant.

  1. It takes time for a new technology to get deployed and become infrastructure. I think it took electricity about forty years to displace steam power in industry. The first thing that will get disrupted is funding for obviously now second rate technology, like ITER. Which is already running into budget problems.The Navy has been planning to go to all-electric ships in the future anyway, Polywell fusion dovetails nicely. But even with an aggressive schedule, it’ll take at least five years to design and start production of the Mark 1 Polywell Naval Fusion Reactor.

  2. What i do not realize is in truth how you’re not really much more smartly-preferred than you might be now. You are very intelligent. You recognize thus significantly in the case of this topic, produced me for my part imagine it from so many numerous angles. Its like men and women are not interested unless it is one thing to do with Girl gaga! Your own stuffs outstanding. At all times take care of it up!

  3. Daisy, that’s totally how it is for me. I think when I’m faster, the story is more concrete and fully formed in my head, so putting it on the page is less of an ordeal, and as a result, it’s also better when I turn it in. And what you’re saying re your speed is such a great example of understanding yourself and learning what really works for you.

  4. I gotta tell you, I am more more offended by the “generic commenter”than by the less artful spammer. Why? at least the obvious spammeris completely open and honest about their intentions! I know who they are.The generic spammer is a con man and also a charlatan You canprobably see that I have very strong towards this group of spammers

  5. Just love your compost tumbler and it was a breeze to set up! All those “death” warnings were funny, though!! Dexter was also ensuring that we weren’t swallowed up by the bin! Have fun with it and take note when you harvest your fresh, yummy, gorgeous, home-grown compost! I’m jealous! OH YES!! I’ve seen these nifty easy go thingies!!! When I find one I’ll buy you one!

  6. Cynic I see that the GERB amendment extending the time limit by one year has been adopted – the Cabinet was only asking for 6 months. Do you think that this places Bulgaria in further breach of the obligation under the Companies Directives to have details of all companies on a central electronic register, an obligation that should have been implemented 3 years ago?Like your blog by the way.

  7. Dag Ellen, mooi hoe jij het transitieproces beschrijft, startende met het voelen en beleven van de eindbestemming(in de droom). In de verandertrajecten die ik begeleid gebruik ik iets andere woorden, maar de essntie blijft hetzelfde. Eerst dromen, stoppen en afscheid nemen van het oude , de neutrale fase die doodeng is en dan het nieuwe begin.

  8. Coroneltasso jereissatti è o politico mais mercenario em 500 anos de nossa Historia!O PMDB, enfim, já sabemos o que são! Mas esse tasso jereissatti, ultrapassa-os muito longe! È uma aberração política. Lembra-me uma rolha de cortiça ao sabor das ondas e do vento. Só outras aberrações politicas confiam e acreditam nele. Só lixo, político! Vale, zero! Negoceia tudo! È outro lulla.

  9. Hi Jonathan: First of all I would like to thank you for your very valuable site as I too am the proud owner of two “Dead” T30′s due to the RAM issue. Been using the cardboard to get by. Anyway my question is does the Mobo have to come out to do the soldering or can it all be done from the RAM access compartment ? I have had alot of experience soldering and am going to give this a try. I don’t have much to loose as one unit has one dead slot and the other unit has two dead slots. Thanx for your help.

  10. It’s okay that GTA or some other place bought them here it shows that somebody out there has taste, at least they didn’t say “hey it’s the song off GTA” like yeah…..it is….your’re right, it was made for the game and no-one heard it before you, that’s annoying. Like someone seeing Freddy Mercury and going “Hey, it’s the meme guy” that’s the ultimate losing faith? in humanity moment.

  11. i LOVE your new site and blog. i mean honestly can’t remember what your old main site looks like, but i can tell you that i know that it definitely looks great. i’m guessing your favorite color is purple. it’s so exciting that you no longer have to sit behind a desk looking at numbers. numbers a boring. people are way better.

  12. Hola Dr. Villagómez. Recientemente compré su nuevo libro porque me sirve para mi tesis. Pero necesito más información sobre la crisis económica del 2009 en México y EUA. Recuerdo que en su blog había puesto una lista de artículos sobre la crisis pero creo que ya la quito. Ojalá que la pudiera volver a poner en el blog. Saludos y felicidades!!!!

  13. I love how you posted a casual outfit! Makes me feel like you're "normal" like us! Your outfits are always so cute, so it's cool to see a dress-down from you. And it doesn't matter where you look–into camera, into mirror, etc. I love the outfits!

  14. Thank you to the two mothers who came out and showed the parents and kids about their loss. The program was very touching to me because it was two of your teens who were in the wrong place at the wrong time. They didn’t deserve to die and I pay respect to your kids. I hope you keep teaching the parents and kids about what you’re going through. It’s hard to lose somebody, especially your child, and I want to thank you for coming to talk with us. I’m very sorry for your loss, Avi (age 16)Presentation on 11/15/11 to the Community Justice Program

  15. Hallo danke für die Anleitung, ich habe mit ihr nun froyo über die kitchen installiert.habe nur eine frage: bei der kitchen war ein kernel dabei. muss ich punkt 9 trotzdem durchführen? 9) 10) und 11) habe ich noch nicht durchgeführt. sollte ich das noch tun? läuft bisher super, kein vergleich zum bisherigen 1.7

  16. Henry, you'll have to stay after class and write the following 100 times on the blackboard:Year-round tropical horticulture= more female reproductive autonomy= less expensive polygyny= more male-male rivalry for mates= a more robust male body typeYes, it's a bit long for a sound bite. Sometimes, shorter explanations are not always the best ones.

  17. Draga Mos Craciun,Nu ti-am mai scris de mult timp sa te rog sa-mi trimiti un cadou!Nu imi doresc cadouri scumpe si nici sofisticate imi doresc doar sanatate pentru mine si familia mea si tuturor fiintelor de pe pamant!Si as mai avea o dorinta vreau sa-mi dai posibilitatea sa ma mai intalnesc o data cu bunelu meu care a plecat prea devreme dintre noi!Imi e asa dor de el de nu pot descrie in cuvinte!

  19. It's too bad that nothing Mr. Apuzzo states is historically correct, constitutional nor legal precedent. And… he knows it… or certainly should know it.While it's highly unlikely, perhaps one day he'll get to argue his ridiculous "legal theory" before SCOTUS, though the fact he could not even convince an administrative law judge of his nonsense, I doubt the SCOTUS justices will be impressed.

  20. You didn’t answer any of my questions so I will assume my argument is valid and you have no intelligent answers for it, thanks.If Obama stole Romney care,then why wouldn’t Romney be appreciative that Obama is copying him? Because he can demonize him much easier. On his own idea. Your argument makes sense.Show me any details about Romney laying out a plan to assist Detroit.Because I can link you some sites of Romney saying,”Let the auto industry fail.”Got anything stronger than this?

  21. "Remember when Klayman declared victory on Friday? Those tailspinning Obama lawyers were right."Klayman did not claim victory. He claimed that Lewis would be forced to make a decision as regards the definition of NBC vice simply dismissing the case for lack of standing. That in fact happened and he can now appeal. Chances are the SCOTUS will ignore the appeal when it gets there. But it seems to me there are 4 ticked of Justices on the court right now. Hard to predict!Born912

  22. I want to to visit together and let you know the way very much I actually much-loved identifying internet website currently. I will contemplate it a proper pay tribute to to the office within my business office and be able to makes use of the guidelines supplied on your weblog plus take part in guests’ opinions like this. Need to a situation involving guests writer develop into offered with your last, it is best to tell me. condos for rental in boca raton

  23. da, de deenetarea educatiei in Rom am auzit. Stiu si de caderea economica a tarii din ’89 incoace. Mare pacat. Dar nu dau vina pe Poporul Roman, ci pe porcii profitori de la putere. Cind I’ll ud pe imbecilul de Becali mi se face “pielea gaina”. Dar stiu si multi oameni culti si cinstiti.Nu uita ca si America/West-ul e plin de lepre/hoti/profitori/copii idioti. Astea nu sint atribute exclusiv romane

  24. I worked as a Storage Administrator/System Programmer. I also worked with CONTROL-M. I am like so many with this posting, I can’t find a job. I have tried to convert over to the server world but the young people of the world have taken over that. So it looks like a lot of training all over again. I don’t think I will go back to mainframes because it is so hard to convert to other jobs.

  26. Read book or watch deathbychina com/videos.html to see the devil in action by Prof. Navarro (just published June 2011). China had claimed in “ancient that the whole Vietnam territory belongs to China with shear-savagery invasions. like Spain claims America belong to Spain 500 years ago. I guess the? bi-millinium war between China & Vietnam will continue into the […]

  27. We apologize to everybody who was use to using the old welding website look. We are in the process of changing the welding blog to include a brand new welding social network forum. In the process of doing so we lost the original home page. We hope to have the forum site up and running soon. Feel free to bookmark us and come back to check on the status of the welding forum.

  28. Sahateollisuuden kannattaisi huolehtia siitä, että ellei kuitupuu käy kaupaksi, sen kuljettaminen edes energiapuuksi, vaikka vettä pitkin, kannattaisi. Kun ensiharvennushakkuut tehdään ajoissa, on olemassa edes teoreettisia edellytyksiä sille, että vuonna 80 metsässä on komeaa tukkia ainespuuksi sahoille.

  29. “It just goes to prove once again that in China, you have to really put your foot down, challenge everything and everyone and not take no for an answer…”I think a certain group of styudent dyemonstrators that had some sort of dimocracy moovement in the late eighties would disagree with you there… don’t want to bring the tone down too much but I don’t think that WoAi’s experience can be transferrable to EVERY aspect of Chinese life.

  30. I love this dress on you and of course no one else picked it up, you gotta have skills to look this good! It really is a stunner and your waist is so tiny! I love your fur collar, any chance you'd show us how to make one? I always love seeing all your loot, that white blouse is so pretty! Your post yesterday was so well received because we all agree with you! We have the coolest tribe huh!!!!Love you!!!!Krista

  31.

  32. I have observed that car insurance companies know the motors which are susceptible to accidents along with other risks. In addition, they know what kind of cars are given to higher risk plus the higher risk they’ve already the higher your premium charge. Understanding the basic basics involving car insurance will allow you to choose the right style of insurance policy that may take care of your family needs in case you become involved in any accident. Thanks for sharing the ideas in your blog.

  33. I'm coming as that permanent scowl Kate has on her face when she is not gritting for something. See my roots on my hair from the ROL photos? I'm so pissed that I can't get to NY to get my straw redone because that idiotic storm Sandy has blocked my trip. #I'mawhinybitchShe's come undoneIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII thought about coming as a giant fleshy number 11 but I couldnt squeeze another darned thing into this outfit.

  34. I have been dipping for the last 5 years and I really want to quit after reading all the crazy stories about mouth cancer. I dip like a can and a half a day. I heard that the nicotine gum or lozenge or patch can help me quit but i’ve tried quitting before and idk how long I will stay off the wagon if the products taste bad or dont help enough. has anyone tried it? what is it like? does it help?

  35. Kirjoja ostan harvoin ja harkiten. Kuvat koukuttaa, mutta ostopäätös syntyy sisällysluetteloa selaamalla (ruokarajoitteisen on turha ostaa kirjaa, jonka aihe on herkkua hirvestä jne…). Kirjan sisällön pitää olla sellaista, etä se tuo mun keittiöön jotain uutta ja jotain vanhaa uudella tavalla. En myöskään pidä näpertelystä, enkä halua viettää kaupassa aikaa resptin kanssa, joka koostuu paljon yli kymmenestä aineksesta/mausteesta. Menee kikkailun puolelle. Tykkään aika puhtaista mauista, joten siksikään pitkä lista erilaisia aineksia ei viehätä.

  36.
