What is Chontong?
The word "CHONTONG" in Thai language is a spoon made of gold which is synonymous with wealth, especially inherited wealth, like someone someone born into a wealthy family is said to "have been born with a silver spoon and gold spoon in his mouth". In USA the expression "silver spoon" is also used, with nearly identical meaning.
Another meaning for "CHONTONG" is eating good food with good spoon. That's why we would like to spoiled you with very good thai dishes which make from fresh ingredients with this gold spoon.
