Front Room at Waldorf Astoria Bangkok Reopens with New Delectables

Front Room at Waldorf Astoria Bangkok is now ready to pamper your taste buds with home-cooking-style dishes with a fresh concept that celebrates the 8 flavours of Thai cuisine, curated by native whizzes and gurus.

Inspired by “ros meu Mae” (tastes of mother’s cooking), many dishes come from the chefs’ childhood memories of their comforting home dining. The culinary collaboration brought Dr. Niphatchanok (Ajarn Ning) Najpinij’s culinary heritage that was bestowed on her by her mother Asst. Prof. Kobkaew Najpinij, a renowned guru of Thai cuisine, together with her own culinary research to the new menu that was co-created with Chef Supanat (Ann) Khanarak and the Front Room team led by sous chef Sarocha (Bua) Rajatanawin. The menu celebrates the eight distinctive Thai flavors of sour, sweet, nutty, salty, spicy, bitter, astringent and mild in a home-cooking style as an ode to all ‘Mae’.

The highlights of Front Room’s new, extensive menu include: Phla Lai Bua Hoy Shell or Seared Hokkaido Scallop with Lotus Stem, Pomelo and Homemade Chili Paste; Talae Gub Sator Kua Sauce Khem or Stir-Fried Squid, Tiger Prawn, Bitter Bean with Salted Seafood Sauce; Nuea Khem Tom Kati or Coconut Broth with Salted Beef Cheek, Shallot and Chili; Pla Gao Nung Gub Sauce Larb Kua or Streamed Grouper with Northeastern Thai-style Sauce; Moo Sam Shan Pad Grathiam Dong or Stir-Fried Kurobuta Pork Belly with Fermented Garlic; and Ma Phrao Cheesecake or Coconut Cheesecake with Young Coconut Jelly and White Chocolate Mousse.
