akyra Thonglor Bangkok Hotel, the urban retreat in the Thai capital's hippest district, officially unveiled the new menu on 2nd August 2019 at Som Tam & Chardonnay, its vibrant dining destination which opens out onto an expansive pool terrace.

True to the restaurant's name, the new menu focuses on som tam, the celebrated spicy salad which is made using shredded green papaya, beans and tomatoes, blended together in a pestle and mortar with fish sauce, palm sugar, garlic and chili, and topped with peanuts. The expert Thai chefs at akyra Thonglor Bangkok Hotel have now enhanced this beloved dish by combining it with succulent Canadian lobster and oscietra caviar, one of the world's most prized varieties of black caviar.

To make this culinary occasion even more refined, guests can accompany it with a glass or bottle of Louis Roederer Brut Premier NV Champagne. Fresh and elegant yet rich and powerful, this beautiful bubbly cuts through the spiciness of the som tam. Alternatively, diners can select from three exquisite Chardonnays: Echeverria Reserva 2017 from Chile, La Chapelle 2016 from Languedoc, France, and Main Divide 2015 from New Zealand.
