Front Room at Waldorf Astoria Bangkok introduces new sharing concept that is good for two and more

| August 27, 2019

Front Room at Waldorf Astoria Bangkok is pleased to introduce a new sharing concept featuring the restaurant’s most beloved dishes from its tasting menus by Chef Fae Rungthiwa Chummongkol and her team.


Since the opening of the restaurant in August 2018, Front Room’s new and innovative Nordic-Thai approach to cuisine has been well-received by guests. Fresh and locally sourced Thai ingredients are brought to life through Nordic cooking styles which include fermenting, curing, preserving and smoking.

“Actually, I schedule a change of the tasting menu every four months to follow the best produce of the seasons. However, there is high demand from our guests for some of their favorite dishes available in each tasting menu, so I thought it would be a good idea that I combine some of the restaurant’s most beloved dishes that are great for sharing in an à la carte menu,” says Fae Rungthiwa Chummongkol, Front Room’s chef de cuisine.


Highlights include “Mælk”, caramelized milk skin, lemongrass smoked scallop with chili-herb emulsion; “Atlantic Laks”, salmon, carrot, bitter oranges and rice mayo; “Blue of the Sea”, Front Room’s style of the famous crab curry; “Raised in Korat”, a beef tartar with pickled papaya and Northern Thai’s local spices; “Born in Chiang Rai, Braised in Bangkok”, Pork Rib, Celery Root, Herbed Soy Jus and “King of beef”, dry-aged local wagyu striploin served with morel and fumet.

Pricings range from THB 400++ to THB 1,500++, with each portion for two to share. Diners will receive a complimentary set of amuse bouche before starting their meal.

Front Room is open from Monday to Saturday from 5:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. (last order at 9:30 p.m.). For bookings, please contact +66 (0) 2 846 8888 or email
