On 7 December 2019, Pirom restaurant unveils its updated dining concept highlighting Thailand’s distinctive culinary as well as cultural heritage. With Chef Mama Duu as diners’ culinary guide, the concept puts special focus on Thailand’s four culinary regions: North, South, Central and Northeast.
A reworked and extensive menu features classic and contemporary dishes along with special tasting and sharing selections great for families and groups. Also new to Pirom are pairing menus that combine Thai dishes with alcohol and non-alcohol beverages such as Thai wines and herbal drinks.
It’s a genuinely new kind of Thai culinary experience. And one that, as resort General Manager Michael Janssen explains, takes in several components.
‘In reconceptualising Pirom,’ says Mr Janssen, ‘we wanted to create a total Thai cuisine experience. A major part of that is our new emphasis on Thailand’s culinary regions and the specialties within each. Outside of Thailand we tend to think of Thai food in terms of a few well-known dishes. But the number and range of dishes across the country is incredible. And,’ the GM adds, ‘that’s why we’re fortunate to have Chef Mam Duu at Pirom. She’s truly a Thai food virtuoso.’
Mr Janssen speaks of Chef de Cuisine Jasvir San-Ghera, better known by her many fans as Chef Mama Duu, who oversees and directs the restaurant’s new concept. A Thai native, she’s widely known in the country and beyond for her appearances on cookery shows and travel programmes including Thailand’s Khun Toi Kitchen, China’s Chef Nic, and Australia’s Luxury Escapes; she’s also been a judge for Iron Chef Thailand. To Pirom restaurant Chef Mama Duu brings more than three decades of kitchen experience and a thorough knowledge of one of the world’s most complex cuisines, including, as Mr Janssen noted, a mastery of the ingredients, cooking methods and presentations specific to each of Thailand’s four culinary regions.
In addition to a fantastic meal at Pirom, resort guests as well as local residents can enjoy and learn more about Thai food through Pirom’s regular programme of activities including guest chef appearances, festive holiday events and menus, year-round seasonal specialities and more.
To those diverse experiences can be added the restaurant’s stylish yet relaxed setting that encourages interaction with the restaurant’s talented culinary professionals. Décor and design elements such as exquisite ceramic tableware and other enchanting details further make every meal at Pirom a special occasion.
Among many highlights on Pirom’s wide-ranging new menu are traditional favourites such as mieng khum and khao mok kai, while complementing the classics are Thai cuisine specialities including ped rom kwan rad sauce ma kham and panna cotta nam tan ta-node.
