Stories Of Italy

Reminisce back to your days of adventurous travels as ALATi, the Mediterranean restaurant at Siam Kempinski Hotel Bangkok, takes you on a journey to experience delicious flavours from the entire Mediterranean Sea to the coast of Italy in the ‘Stories of Italy’ promotion.

 

The culinary journey serves up an exclusive à la carte and set menus of Italian favourites from various regions of Italy. Executive Chef Carlo Valenziano has designed classic and contemporary dishes to evoke gastronomic memories, with bracing flavours of coastal Italy. Chef Carlo’s inspiration comes from the rich heritage of Italian cuisine combined with his experiences from exciting trips in many cities in Italy – from Piedmont, Umbria, Tuscany, Lazio, Liguria, Veneto, Puglia, Naples and Sicily. The stories hidden behind them reflect his belief that ‘Life is food’ and that ‘Celebrating every day with the best food is life.’
