Read a full review of Sra Bua’s new menu in our September edition
Renowned Michelin-starred chef Henrik Yde Andersen was recently in Bangkok to show off the latest menu at Siam Kempinski Hotel Bangkok’s award-winning Thai restaurant Sra Bua by Kiin Kiin, and the occasion had foodies across the city talking.
While encountering some resistance by Thai food purists, Chef Henrik’s ability to combine traditional Thai flavours with Western cooking techniques won him the favour of Michelin inspectors in 2008, when his Thai fusion restaurant Kiin Kiin in Copenhagen, Denmark won its first Michelin star – a star the establishment still holds today.
Aptly named “The Journey”, the unveiling of Sra Bua’s new menu was an invigorating culinary adventure and insight into the mind of Chef Henrik. At the end of the day, debates about authenticity crumble in the face of what truly matters: the 10-course dinner menu was creative, thoughtful and very, very tasty.
With menu highlights such as Laksa-based “crab-on-crab cornetto” and lobster served with kra chai and red pepper, each dish was accompanied by a story from Chef Henrik detailing his inspiration, exposing his humorous side and showing off a deep knowledge of Thai and Asian cooking traditions.
Below is a copy of the 10-course menu – available now – and an image gallery of our favourite dishes.
