Dream Team: 12-Hand Dinner at The Standard!

This 22 JulyOjo – a slick Mexican cuisine on the 76th floor of The Standard, Bangkok Mahanakhon – is turning into a creative playground for the restaurant’s head chef and Mexican culinary sensation Francisco “Paco” Ruano, who will be hosting five chef friends for an eclectic 12-hand dinner.

Brought together by the Thai capital’s vibrant culinary scene and their friendship with Chef Paco, the five Bangkok-based chefs are renowned for their boundless creativity and fearless experimentation in the kitchen. They are chef Chalee Kader of Michelin Bib Gourmand-listed 100 Mahaseth, chef Tim Butler from Asia’s 50 Best Eat Me, chef Prin Polsuk of the legendary Samrub Samrub Thai, chef Álvaro “El Palanca” Ramos of Michelin-listed Vaso tapas bar, and chef Pepe Dasí Jiménez from Jim Thomson.

On 22 July, the five guest chefs will be presenting delectable riffs on their signature dishes, while Chef Paco, whose Alcalde restaurant in Guadalajara is on Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants list, and Ojo’s chef de cuisine Alonso Luna Zarate will be unveiling new dishes developed during Chef Paco’s recent stay in Bangkok. Guests can expect an eclectic menu marrying modern Thai food, Spanish classics with a twist, regional cuisines with a progressive approach, and uncommon Mexican dishes from one of Latin America’s most influential young chefs.

At Ojo Bangkok, chef Paco’s first restaurant outside Mexico, guests can sample Mexican dishes that are impossible to find elsewhere in Thailand. Under Chef Paco’s visionary leadership, Ojo moves on from the stereotypes about Mexican cuisine to focus instead on a seasonal, produce-driven menu that embraces modernity while being rooted in tradition. The décor of Ojo, Thailand’s highest-located restaurant, is as ambitious as the menu, drawing guests in with reflective surfaces, stunning pink and gold sunset hues, and a terrace that looks out to Bangkok’s skyline.

The 12-hand dinner will take place at Ojo located on the 76th floor of The Standard, Bangkok Mahanakhon on Saturday, 22 July 2023 from 6:00 pm onwards. Price is THB 3,400 ++ per person for a 12-course set menu, with a deposit of THB 1,000 required at the time of reservation. Diners will also be able to try four exclusive cocktails inspired by Chef Paco’s recent travels.
