Second day in Bangkok and already the first of many planned restaurant visits and Foodie spots we want to check out. And why not start with something "close to home" but obviously not? We were exited to visit Danish Chef Henrik Yde Andersen and his restaurant Sra Bua by Kiin-Kiin!
Sra Bua by Kiin-Kiin is by the way one of three Thai Concept Restaurant in the World runned by foreign Chefs who hold a Michelin Star (the other ones are "Nahm" runned by Chef David Thompson in London until 2011 - nowdays located in Bangkok and "Pok Pok" in New York runned by Chef Andy Ricker). So travelling to Bangkok and Thailand made it a quiet obvious decision - this was one of the Restaurants we wanted to check out! Another obvious choice was Gaggan...more about that later...
Sra Bua in Bangkok is located at the Siam Kempinski Hotel Bangkok. Kempinski's a reknowned as one of the oldest hotel chains of high standard and luxery establishments in Europe but with Hotels all around the World. The interiour of the Kempinsky Bangkok is extraordinary and breathtakingly upper class. When we paid our visit a wedding was held in the hotel and strolling through a lobby and main hall filled with people wearing their finest - and quiet obviously most expensive dresses and outfit´s (Spoons wearing just jeans and t-shirt and Sticks in a quiet casual dress) made us feel a little bit misplaced. However the very warm welcome of the waitress as we entered Sra Bua washed away all our worries - this was going to be a pleasent and relaxed restaurant experience!
And the visit lived up to our expectations! We loved every second! And actually we were blown off the chair more then once. The Tastingmenu was filled with surprising taste sensations, childhood memories, inspiring food and great wineparings which made this evening a food memory for life.
We have the full review of Sra Bua in Stories & Guides so read more there!
Great food can take you on a journey but great chefs can move you anywhere!
