The interior features a full-scale model of the world’s first ever aircraft.
Hua Hin’s latest restaurant taps into the resort town’s aviation heritage (it was the first place in Thailand to train commercial pilots, don’t you know?). Air Space (063-916-0999, www.fb.com/airspacehuahin) in the Khao Takiab area features a stunning interior dominated by a full-scale model of the world’s first ever aircraft, the 1903 Wright Flyer, which hangs from the ceiling of the PIA-designed barn-like space.
Open on Aug 11, the restaurant's menu is an all-Thai affair courtesy of one of our favorite chefs, Bangkok Bold’s Supanut “Ann” Kanarak (previously head of Four Season's Spice Market). Her signature treats include miang som o (pomelo salad on fried wild betel leaves, B250) along with seven aviation-themed cocktails like the Concorde, Captain, Black Box and 1903 Wright Flyer Gold Age. The coffee bar serves beans from Doi Chang, South Africa and South America. Try their Champagne-glass-coffee Deconstruct Latte (B150) served with a freshly baked cookie.
The restaurant was recently shortlisted for the INSIDE World Festival of Interiors 2016 alongside two other Thai projects.
