The culinary team at Michelin-starred Elements restaurant at The Okura Prestige Bangkok has recently launched a new tasting menu.
Inspired by the famous two-star Michelin restaurant Ciel Bleu at the Hotel Okura Amsterdam, Elements has developed a reputation for serving finely prepared gourmet French cuisine with seasonal Japanese influences. The talented culinary team in Bangkok has worked closely with their Ciel Bleu counterparts to share culinary savoir-faire and develop the new tasting menu. There are 3 tasting menu options to choose from offering between 5 – 7 courses.
Each starts with 4 amuse bouche that combine French cooking techniques with Japanese ingredients: they are Eggplant & Goat Cheese serve with Cracker; Shrimp & Daikon Radish on Chicken Skin; Macaron with Tuna and Furikake; and Croquette of Parsnip, Shoso Leaf and Karashi. Highlights from the tasting menus include seasonal treats such as Taraba Crab with Japanese rice, Sea Urchin butter and Seaweed, Local Organic Duck with Eggplant, 12-spices and Miso, Local Organic Garden Greens with Daidai Vinegar, Kurobuta Pork Belly with Langoustine, Kumquat and Japanese Curry, and much more. To enhance an innovative dining experience, guests can add a 75gm Japanese Wagyu Beef Sirloin (A4) cooked to perfection. The pre-dessert of Flavours of nougat de Montélimar followed by Gomasio, a chocolate mousse of 70% Mekonga Cacao with banana ice cream, yuzu jelly and sesame sauce is a great way to end a fantastic dining experience.
