The renowned one-Michelin-star restaurant for five consecutive years, Sra Bua by Kiin Kiin at Siam Kempinski Hotel Bangkok welcomes the winter season of cool breezes with the new ‘Winter Journey’ from 1 November 2022 until 31 March 2023. Continuing its legendary modern-Thai gastronomy, Sra Bua by Kiin Kiin remains consistent in composing unique and inspiring dishes created by award-winning Michelin-star chef Henrik Yde-Andersen and senior head chef Chayawee Suthcharitchan.
The secret to the ‘Winter Journey’ is designed to reflect Chef Henrik’s gastronomic travels as he reminisces about his adventures from Thailand to Japan and Europe. Portraying the ‘winter season’, Chef Henrik and Chef Chayawee join forces to develop menus using the finest winter-time ingredients in each dish.
The ‘Winter Journey’ menu embraces 16 invigorating servings, beginning with Sra Bua by Kiin Kiin’s famous eight ‘snack and street food’ canapés to delight guests upon arrival at the lounge, and was inspired by Chef Henrik’s food travels. It includes the all-time favourite soy sauce salty meringue; ‘Tom Kha’ truffle ice-cream cornetto; five-spice pork croquette; and more, which have been incorporated into his street-food nibbles.
The journey continues with the ninth serving at the dining table with the signature ‘Tom Yum Kung’ with fun crafted DIY instant tofu noodles made using a syringe. The ‘Tom Yum prawn’ with four homemade prawn condiments, including a prawn cracker, prawn toast, crispy prawn cake and lobster bisque fritter, is the house favourite. The tenth serving presents the refreshing ‘spicy Hokkaido scallop salad with pomelo’ with bursting flavours.
Leading into the 11th serving, there is the ‘king fish flan in miso’, which features the smooth texture of a smoked king fish with a touch of Japanese miso. The 12th serving portrays an exciting ‘Dino fish with carrot and tamarind’, introducing seabass with a crispy texture, similar to the dinosaur spikes on the crispy skin, with a sweet-and-sour taste that cannot be missed.
The 13th serving is a reinvented dish that surprises guests with that wow factor: the ‘green curry snow fish cake’, a popular national dish of ‘green curry’ cooked with silky snow fish, made in the form of a cake with green curry lava inside. The 14th serving makes its way into a main course, with ‘duck confit Pad Krapow with peas and quail egg’, presenting the traditional French duck leg confit served with homemade chilli and basil sauce; peas; and quail egg on the side. This dish is also served with aromatic jasmine rice from Surin province.
The excitement is not yet over as this 16-serving journey concludes with classic European desserts and a touch of Thai to celebrate the meal. The 15th serving begins with the ‘lemongrass coconut ice-cream and lime meringue’, presented as a beautiful white iceberg. Last, but definitely not least, the meal finishes with the 16th serving – ‘pistachio soufflé with pistachio tuile and pandan ice cream’, a signature French dessert with a hint of refreshing Thai pandan ice cream – before concluding in style with the imaginative and very creative petit fours.
The playful flavours and elements of the ‘Winter Journey’ set menu are crafted and choreographed with care and precision to bring out the distinctive Thai flavours in each dish using daring combinations.
