Celebrate a decade of turning Thai food on its head.
The Michelin-starred Sra Bua by Kiin Kiin has reopened to the public with a showstopping menu featuring the restaurant’s most iconic dishes from the past decade. Available for both lunch and dinner, the four- (B1,850, lunch only), six- (B2,600) and eight-course (B3,200) menus are a celebration of the restaurant’s tenth anniversary and are packed with all the modern gastronomic theatrics that Sra Bua has become known for.
Before your meal begins, start off your meal in the lounge area, where you’ll be treated to an array of creative, street-food inspired canapes. After whetting your appetite with smoking sai oua, intriguing savory meringue and miang kham, head into the regal teak wood- and lotus pond-filled dining room, where the gastronomic journey really begins.
Scientific apparatus is used to brew the tom yum, which you’ll then be invited to fill with tofu “Mama noodles” from a syringe. Making another grand entrance, the iconic frozen red curry with Maine lobster and lychee salad arrives in a bowl piping with dry ice, whereas the spicy yellow curry with crab meat and corn forgoes the theatrics yet delivers the most sublime flavors. Premium ingredients continue in the slow-cooked wagyu beef, served with crispy kale, pickled radish, green bean and house-made oyster sauce. Rounding things off, the mango sticky rice is almost unrecognizable, but one bite and you’ll discover the classic flavors that you know and love.
Opt for the wine pairing to complete the experience (B1,200/1,800/2,300), which charts everything from a deliciously dry Grüner Veltliner from Austria to sweet Japanese plum wine.
The Iconic set menu will be available until Oct 11, after which it will change to the Winter Journey menu in tandem with Sra Bua’s sister restaurant in Copenhagen. The iconic dishes will remain available a la carte. You can find the full menu here.
