Thailand Dinner
Bailliage of Bangkok
Bangkok, November 29, 2019
Spanish-themed 'four-hands' event at Uno Mas
" the Chefs spectacularly carved the whole suckling goat table-side "

Having already explored the cuisines of Thailand, India, France, Italy, Japan and Germany in Bangkok in 2019, we ventured to Spain as our dining year came to a close.

The destination was the semi-alfresco dining deck of Uno Mas - Thailand’s premier Spanish restaurant perched 54 stories above the Bangkok skyline with stunning panoramic views from its unique rooftop location with floor-to-ceiling windows opening onto a cloud of fresh winter’s air.

Our evening started with Corpinnat’s 2014 Torelló Reserva Brut Nature served with canapés in front of the restaurant’s eight metre tall wine tower holding over 2,000 bottles, a selection which straddles both the Old and New Worlds.

The “four hands” belonged to Chef Sandro Aguilera (from Catalonia) and Chef Christian Ham (from Alsace).
