Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok, the Langsuan luxury and lifestyle landmark, invites guests to celebrate World Chocolate Day with the ‘El Sabor de Kimpton Brunch: World Chocolate Day. This special edition of Stock.Room’s monthly celebration of vibrant Latin American flavours will be a chocolate extravaganza in partnership with Tempered, a local chocolate patisserie and the first cocoa roastery in Thailand, as well as a special guest shift from John Robert Villanueva, Head Bartender from F*nkytown.


Named after the technique used to achieve chocolate’s smooth, shiny finish, Tempered is a serious new contender on Bangkok’s cacao scene, spearheaded by Chanikan ‘Fern’ Tanboonperm, Executive Chef and Co-Founder. Tempered is a Thai chocolatier built on the ethos of sustainability, from sourcing and harvesting to roasting and processing cocoa beans.  Tempered dishes featured at the brunch include a list of exclusive creations including Chocolate Bon Bon filled with Patron Tequila, Chili Caramel and homemade Chocolate Ice Cream, Mayan-Style Boozy Chocolate Cocktail and a special Chocolate beverage.
