From Bangkok to the Jungle Canopy: Chefs Joe & Saki Bring Michelin-Starred Dining to Samui’s Tree Tops
This December, a six-course culinary journey comes to Samui’s most exciting dining destination courtesy of the co-founders of Bangkok’s acclaimed 80/20, which picked up its first Michelin star in the 2020 edition of Thailand’s Red Guide.
Chefs Joe and Saki bring their expertise and creativity to Samui from the 10th – 12th December for a dinner to remember. Inspired by ‘taam ra,’ which refers to a written work that deals formally and systematically with a subject, the Chefs have delved deeply into traditional recipe books to explore, discover and redefine Thai cuisine. They’ll be accompanied for the dinners by a master mixologist from Chalong Bay, Phuket’s highly credentialed rum distillery.
Diners will join Joe & Saki first for a welcome reception at Tree Tops Lounge, to sample two amuse bouches, paired with crafted cocktails. Appetites and curiosity piqued, they’ll make their way up to a table in the sky for a unique six-course set menu. Fresh seafood starts the menu with chili soy marinated tuna followed by seared scallops, grilled banana squid, braised meaty pork ribs and grilled lobster all paired and seasoned with locally sourced produce and rounded off with Thai chocolate, pate au choux and seasonal fruit.
The award-winning Tree Tops Sky Bar and Dining located on the grounds of Anantara Lawana Koh Samui Resort is one of Thailand’s most unique dining experiences. Eight private sala’s are nestled in a 120-year-old tree top canopy drawing in the island’s most chick gatherings of friends, family or romantic couples each evening.
Two sittings with limited seating are available on the 10th, 11th and 12th, starting at 5.00 pm and 7.00 pm. The six-course set menu is priced at THB 2,988++ for food only.
