Chef Pom Chinese Cuisine By Todd has a long and storied record in the art of Chinese cooking. Chef Pom started cooking from a young age and helmed award-winning restaurants in the region. From the heydays assisting in the kitchen in Yaowarat, Chef Pom has come a long way. Khun Piti (Todd) Bhirom Bhakdi is a connoisseur of food and arts and invited renowned Chef Pom to join forces. Together they will go beyond and reach the stars.
This restaurant is a confluence of Cantonese cooking style from Guangzhou and Hong Kong alongside innovative techniques from across China. Colorful dim-sum remake and the timeless Peking Duck summon you in. Don’t let the camera whirl too long, as dim-sum is best enjoyed hot. Try the duck skin without the sauce first and savor the myriad of flavour that is kept whole through the intricate level of cooking that is a hallmark here.
The Sichuan soup juxtapose perfectly against the Cantonese theme, but once again – innovation is a central tenet here too. Food is after all, an amalgamation across time. The cooking technique for the quintessential fish dish is indeed a testament to the decades of experience under Chef Pom’s hat.
The fish is sprawled out and steamed in high heat before the unique blend of sauce lifted it up many folds. A portion of the fish meat was deboned, fried to perfection and presented as another dish.
In all Chinese meals, there is the noodle dish - for longevity. Chef Pom’s creation here brought out the best in the seafood deployed and that fiery smokey taste, courtesy of the intensely hot wok and fire. As I sat and pondered on the amount of noodles for the next chopstick-full, I cannot help but reminisce on the good old days of Chinese New Year Eve dinners with the family.
At Chef Pom’s, don’t wait for a festive occasion to visit. Commit a date, and come in to savour the very best of Chinese cooking. Celebrate life, and the life well lived, thus far... and toast to the imminent successes ahead.
