A Haven Of True Gastronomy

Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit, a Luxury Collection Hotel, will elevate the dining scene in Thailand’s dynamic capital city this month with the launch of basil, the newly reimagined Thai restaurant that celebrates the kingdom’s rich culinary heritage by giving a modern twist to time-honoured dishes. Billed as ‘A New Leaf’, basil invites diners to step into a haven of true gastronomy where each bite tells a story and every visit leaves a lasting impression.

 

Led by Chef Manachai, basil will present premium Thai produce, responsibly sourced from sustainable suppliers including farms, fisheries and Royal Projects, as well as from an onsite organic Chef’s Garden. These highly authentic ingredients will be used to craft reimagined ancient recipes and regional specialties that will transport diners’ taste buds on a nationwide tour of the four culinary regions of the kingdom: north, northeast, central and south.

Signature dishes include enticing appetisers such as Goong Sarong, a tempting plate of prawns wrapped in a ‘sarong’ of noodles, then fried until crispy and served with a sweet and tangy dipping sauce, Sua Rong Hai, so-called ‘weeping tiger’ beef which is marinated in a blend of spices and grilled to perfection and Khao Phad Platoo, a classic recipe of fried rice with mackerel which dates from the Ayutthaya period. Thailand is also famed for its colourful salads and Yum Som O Goong blends refreshing bursts of pomelo with shrimp, herbs, fried onions and more.

 

This mouthwatering menu also features a series of wonderfully aromatic soups and curries, including the timeless classic Tom Yum Goong, a hot and sour soup with fresh river prawns and Khao Soi Gai, the traditional Chiang Mai-style curry with chicken, noodles and condiments, which was named as the ‘World’s Best Soup’ by foodie website TasteAtlas.com. basil will also elevate Thai street food to exciting new heights with comforting dishes like Phad Thai Goong, stir-fried noodles with tiger prawns.
