Food & Drink

Anantara Chiang Mai’s spy-themed The Service 1921 Restaurant and Bar introduced a healthy, nutrient-rich, cannabis-infused menu, with signature dishes like deep-fried seabass with crispy cannabis leaves and cannabis tamarind sauce; braised pork spareribs with a shitake mushroom and cannabis soup; and grilled river prawns with a spicy lime cannabis sauce.

 

The Thai government recently decriminalized most parts of the marijuana plant. The THC-rich flowers, buds and seeds remain off-limits, but the other parts of the plantS, like the leaves, are no longer prohibited. Those parts of the plant are ending up on restaurant menus as a result of the dietary benefits.

 

Cannabis leaves contain significant amounts of essential vitamins and minerals, and when the leaves are fresh and raw, cannabinoids are in acid, rather than active, form, meaning diners won’t feel dazed from eating or drinking raw cannabis leaves.

 

Other menu items include spicy grilled prawns with traditional Thai herbs and cannabis, and stir-fried beef with cannabis. Cannabis-based drinks on the menu include H.I.D., with fresh cannabis leaves, monsoon jasmine tea, pandan leaf, dry orange and chamomile tea; Genmaicha Hazelnut Latte, including genmaicha tea, milk, hazelnut syrup, cannabis powder, cannabis leaf and chocolate cookies; and the Cannabis Fizzy, with soda, apple nectar, pineapple juice, lime juice, cannabis syrup and a cannabis leaf.

 

The Service 1921 Restaurant and Bar is an old colonial house and a focal point of Anantara Chiang Mai; the building is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year, with the restaurant recently earning its second Michelin Plate.
