While new restaurants pop up daily in Bangkok, Blue Elephant remains firm as one of the best places to enjoy fine dining Thai cuisine in the country. The Bangkok branch of what is a now twelve restaurants located worldwide has been open since 2002, housed in a gorgeous and elegant early 1900s colonial building. Not only is the food here renowned, the restaurant is also noted for its cooking school, which attracts thousands of visitors each year, eager to try out time tested authentic royal Thai recipes, as well as for its excellent product line of Thai curries and sauces. As a holiday special this year, in remembrance of the recently passed away Thai King Bhumibol Adulyadej, Executive Chef Nooror is preparing a New Year's Eve gala feast, which will feature highlights from the king's very own Royal Project, the results of which will wow diners looking for somewhere special in Bangkok to celebrate the arrival of 2017. Menu highlights include a lamb chop sauté in fresh Thai herbs, accompanied by the comically named "forgotten husband sticky rice," (the rice being so good, that the woman taking it for her lunch in the fields would quickly forget about her beau!), along with a dish of crispy sturgeon served with a fermented tea leaf sauce and organic pumpkin. Another top choice includes smoked duck braised with rosemary and grilled foie gras topped with Royal Project strawberries made into a puree. All in all, it's a five course feast, with fine wines and champagne available as well, and with lucky drawing held to boot, giving away hotel, restaurant, and other holiday packages.
