This hotel Thai restaurant aims to bring back a forgotten kitsch classic.
Gai Ob Phu Kao Fai might be familiar to anyone who was in Bangkok during the 1980s. It’s a whole spit-roast chicken, doused in Mekhong whiskey and set alight tableside—basically the tomahawk steak of its day.
It’s also the signature at the new Marriott Surawongse hotel’s Praya Kitchen (priced at B298), where head chef Attapol “X” Naito Thangthong aims to bring back the forgotten kitsch classic.
His other creations include fried oyster fritters with chili sauce (B158) and a crabmeat-loaded Southern tumeric curry (B258), served in a vast, open-kitchen space that far surpasses the hotel-all-day-dining benchmark with its huge, original art motifs replicated from temple murals.
