Update: The sandwich will now be available on Monday, July 4th at 2 p.m. due to rain on Saturday.

Chutatip “Nok” Suntaranon of Kalaya Thai Kitchen and Mike Strauss of Mike’s BBQ are collaborating on a Thai BBQ brisket sandwich, available for one day only – Saturday, July 2nd – during Kalaya’s final weekend of residency at South Philadelphia’s Bok Bar.

The sandwich features Mike’s BBQ’s brisket marinated with fermented fish, honey, and special rubs and spices which Nok brought back from her hometown of Trang in Southern Thailand,and is topped with Kalaya’s som tum (papaya salad) on a Conshohocken Italian Bakery potato roll. There will be 100 sandwiches made available beginning at 2 p.m. 

“Everyone in Philly love’s Mike’s BBQ, and July 4th weekend is all about BBQ and outdoor parties, so this was an easy decision to run this collaboration on the rooftop at Bok Bar,” said Suntaranon.
