UNO MAS on 54th floor of Centara Grand & Bangkok Convention Centre at CentralWorld offers an amazing dining experience with stunning panoramic views over Bangkok, serving classic traditional Spanish and Mediterranean cuisine like “Gambas Pil Pil” (prawns sizzling in olive oil, chillies and garlic) or “Paella” (rice with seafood and more).
During November, Executive Chef Sandro Aguilera presents the new Seasonal Tasting Menu, showcasing the best in-season produce imported directly from the Mediterranean.
Consider these: ’Hen Egg’, a delightful amuse-bouche of organic egg yolk with truffle and porcini flavouring; ‘Eggplant cream’ with tuna belly and grilled onion beetroot oil; ‘Salmon Trout’, accompanied by burrata cheese and pomegranate dressing; and ‘John Dory’, with vanilla potato cream, beetroot oil, asparagus, and almonds.
Follow on with ‘Pyrenees Duck’, roasted duck breast alongside porcini, duck foie gras, grain mustard, porcini purée, and duck reduction. For dessert there are apricots in caramelised puff pastry with saffron ice cream. Try all six courses for a fixed price of 1,950++ baht or simply order à la carte.
UNO MAS comprises 3 unique zones: a welcoming reception area with blue glazed floors and bamboo clad walls leading to the Wine Cellar, an eight-metre wine tower cosseting over 2,000 bottles from the Old and New Worlds, then two semi-alfresco levels offer cosy ledge-seating and bar stools, with the Dining Deck offering amazing views and substantial meals from a show kitchen where chefs use fire pits and a unique oven to repare the signature roast Spanish suckling pig and other specialities.
