Anantara Bangkok Riverside Resort & Spa presents a dynamic, culinary experience, the first of its kind in the capital of Thailand.
This never seen before Sunday brunch concept, The Thai Market Brunch, starts from 15th July 2012, setting a fresh benchmark for richly engaging gastronomy and culture inspired by the region. Anantara’s pioneering vision is brought to life by a celebrity Thai chef, culinary guest stars and distinctive Thai food purveyors, as well as a renowned winery with origins in the royal seaside town of Hua Hin. A local band will perform popular songs from the region and a handicraft workshop has been specially designed for kids.
Delve into the core menu designed by the 2012 Iron Chef, Chumpol Jangprai; regionally classic cuisine and recipes that were thought to be long forgotten can now be rediscovered. Each recipe has been mindfully chosen for its authenticity, uniqueness and indigenous qualities. Guests will make their selections by visiting a vast array of ‘food stalls’ with the majority of dishes cooked a la minute. Luxury presides with a display of wagyu beef sausages, imported oysters, Alaskan king crab, organic shrimp, kurobuta pork, delicious fresh vegetables from the Royal Projects, and more. Newer creations add a star studded element to the culinary display as a selection of winning dishes which have been featured in the Iron Chef show can be ordered and served tableside.
