A new gastronomic lunch journey at Sra Bua by Kiin Kiin

Sra Bua by Kiin Kiin – The Michelin one-star Sra Bua by Kiin Kiin is unveiling more secrets to modern Thai gastronomy with “Mini-Summer Journey” – a new summer menu available from 1 July 2018.

At Sra Bua by Kiin Kiin, guests are invited to take an active role when the chefs and staff choreograph each element of the menu as part of a total dining experience. Each dish, created and planned in detail using a series of fascinating cooking techniques with fresh ingredients, is a compelling chapter in this amazing gastronomic story.

“Mini-Summer Journey” takes inspiration from The Journey set dinner menu, which has proved to be exceedingly popular at Sra Bua by Kiin Kiin in 2018.

Chayawee Sutcharitchan, Head Chef at Sra Bua by Kiin Kiin, explained, “We want our lunch guests to enjoy a similar experience but we also realise that they may have limited time to enjoy our tempting eight-course set menu. That’s why I have prepared a shortened version of the popular dinner set menu.”

The “Mini-Summer Journey” set lunch includes fascinating interpretations of Thai street food (Chiang Mai sausage and chicken satay with peanut ice cream), followed by four-courses and concluding with petits four.
