The Thai Marketplace Comes Alive at Anantara Bangkok Riverside




A new concept in Sunday Brunch has come to Bangkok with the launch of Anantara Bangkok Riverside Resort and Spa’s Thai Market Brunch.

Inspired by the diverse and rich tastes of the different regions of the country, celebrity Thai chef Chumpol Jangprai (above) has conjured up a unique vision.

Held at The Market, alongside the Chao Phraya River, diners get the chance to sample regionally classic cuisine from a huge array of food stalls, where chefs and kitchen staff cook to order.

Chef Chumpol is the 2012 Iron Chef, and he is featuring many of the dishes that he has been seen creating on his popular TV show.

Entertainment includes pop songs performed by a live band, a children’s club for younger family members and a tea juggling artist.

Guests can dine outside and enjoy the majestic river views, or can shelter in the air-conditioned sanctuary of the main building.
