Jett and Jira Hurapan have given CityCentre a sleek new Northern Thai option. Named after the floating lantern festival celebrated in Chiang Mai, Yi Peng recently provided us a meal worthy of a celebration. Dishes range from satays to curries to seafood, and many of the cocktails have a Thai twist. Order this to go: the pu krob: crispy, crunchy, and utterly delicious soft-shell crab. Also try the Three Flavor Ribs: twice cooked, deeply spiced, and topped with a tamarind-chili glaze. A generous helping of pad see ew, with its lovely tangle of rice noodles, tender beef, and sweet chiles finished us off for the evening. Happily, our gai yang, a Chiang Mai–style herbed and grilled half chicken, was almost as good the next day. Pro tip: Rely on your GPS, as CityCentre can be difficult to navigate. We had a bit of a wait curbside but eventually received an easy delivery to our trunk.
