The Nazo Mystery Box
Akira Back, the pioneering Asian restaurant at Bangkok Marriott Marquis Queen’s Park, is inviting guests to embark on a culinary adventure and unlock the secrets of gastronomy with the Nazo Mystery Box.
Nazo is a Japanese word that translates as mystery, enigma or puzzle – something that is not easily explained and carries an element of intrigue. It is this very concept that has sparked the imagination of the talented chef at Akira Back.
The Nazo Mystery Box will transport diners on a journey of curiosity and gastronomy. The lid carries an artistic etching of Chef Akira Back himself, and a plume of smoke gently rises from within, offering the only clue to what lies inside.
When the lid is lifted, diners are presented with a series of multi-sensory delights – nine colourful, bite-sized culinary creations, handcrafted by the talented chef using only the finest ingredients imported from Japan. These include premium cuts of tuna such as otoro, chutoro and akami, alongside other exquisite seafood like botan ebi, known for its succulent sweetness, king crab leg, caviar, abalone and hirame, a high-quality fish famed for its distinctive flavour and firm texture.
This creates the perfect blend of culinary theatre and creative gastronomy – an experience that starts with the anticipation of not knowing what the box contains, followed by the courage to take the first bite and completed by the exquisite flavours that dance on the taste buds.
The Nazo Mystery Box is available daily from 5.30pm – 11pm, exclusively at Akira Back Bangkok, priced at Bt3,200++ per box. Limited boxes are available, so don’t miss this highly original and intriguing epicurean experience with your loved one. Advanced reservations are required.
