Since its opening in 2011, Oskar Bistro has always been committed to offering the most delectable dishes, some including locally-sourced ingredients in their preparation. From 17th to 26th August, Oskar Bistro is launching its own farm-to-table initiative: “Made in Thailand“. We have made it our mission to help build a sustainable food community in Thailand by working with local farmers and educating our community on the benefits of supporting locally-grown sustainable agriculture. French Chef Julien Lavigne has personally handpicked Thai producers who have pledged to respect the environment including suppliers like The Royal Projects, Pia Organic, Karat Kai, Go Organics, Chalong Bay, and Pimacoff. Chef Julien’s innovative menu balances simplicity and sophistication dedicated to Oskar’s signature French and Mediterranean creations using mindful ingredients in an artful manner.
