This restaurant is all about floral flavors.
Located inside the Museum of Floral Culture, Midnight Moon plates up floral cuisine at its finest.
Master floral artist Sakul Intakul (whose portfolio includes floral works for Thai and foreign royal ceremonies over a 30-year career) incorporates flowers into each course of the set dinner (B1,450).
The result is an extra-sensory experience, where Sakul’s work on the plate is no less delicate and detailed than his signature floral decorations.
Inspired by his travels in Asia, especially Japan and India, the menu sees items like grilled miso tofu on magnolia leaf, served with house-pickled white turmeric and a white champaka flower, complete with an instruction to smell the flower while eating the tofu.
Of course, you’ll also get to eat some flowers, like in the salad muang luang, a herb salad with yellow sesbania and Mexican creeper blossoms, served with rice cracker and fried frangipani-wrapped minced pork.
The experience also includes an intermission—a garden tour before dessert. Just make sure to leave room for the rose petal sorbet. Advance reservations required.
