Jamie Oliver’s international restaurant business has launched an all-day dining concept - Jamie Oliver Kitchen – featuring food from a diverse menu that celebrates the famous British chef’s culinary journey over the past 20 years.
Jamie Oliver Kitchen in Bangkok has a contemporary feel, with key features that will include a welcoming open kitchen, flexible seating with both larger tables for sharing and soft seating areas to lounge in. The decor also echoes the fabrics and glassware native to Thailand.
Whether it’s a casual lunch, a quiet coffee, drinks with friends, a simple supper, or a selection of sharing dishes or full-on dinner, the restaurant covers all the bases with a host of enticing, tempting dishes, using only the best ingredients.
Menus tap into the best of Jamie Oliver, and offer dishes that have been adapted to local tastes, allowing the menu to evolve alongside changing consumer desires.
Jamie Oliver said: “Over the past 20 years, I have travelled around the world to discover exciting flavour combinations, picking up incredible influences along the way. The new restaurant brings those inspirations to life and serve some of my absolute all-time favourites.”
Located at Siam Discovery, Jamie Oliver Kitchen Bangkok is operated by franchise partner HPL and joint venture partner Siam Piwat. This site was previously Jamie’s Italian.
“We have loved serving our guests under the Jamie’s Italian banner for the past three years and are now really excited to be introducing this brand new concept to Bangkok,” said General Manager Sarah Smith.
Dishes using local inspiration include a soft shell crab burger with a green papaya salad and Sriracha mayo created specifically for the Bangkok restaurant, and a low and slow short rib cooked in massaman spices.
Other menu highlights include Salmon fishcakes, featuring lemongrass and ginger served with a chilli dipping sauce or Chicken skewers with a spiced peanut sauce; slipper-shaped pizzas including the locally inspired seafood Tom Yum pizza featuring tomatoes, prawns, mussels, clams, squid and mozzarella cheese, served with scissors for easy sharing; a range of salads for those looking for healthier options including a Seafood and noodle salad, a prawn, salmon and octopus seafood skewer with a crunchy vegetable noodle salad.
The sweet dishes have everything from a Roasted pineapple and coconut panna cotta to a zesty Lemon curd bar with a buttery biscuit base, raspberries and pistachios. The beverage menu includes a wine list curated by Sarah Smith the General Manager, to offer old-world classics, new-world favourites and a few quirky labels for those looking to try something new. A range of craft-beers and ciders, cold-press juices from local artisan juicers, MeJuice Press and Italian roasted coffee ensure something for everyone.
