A restaurant in Bangkok has been ranked in thirty-ninth place on the World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2022. The restaurant, Sorn, has won 2 Michelin stars. A hotspot for fine dining, Sorn serves traditional southern Thai cuisine.
Sorn’s head chef, known as ‘Chef Ice’, received the award at a ceremony in London earlier this week. Chef Ice expressed his honour over winning the award, and his grattitude toward the restaurant’s team. He said…
“We would have not made it this far without support from the dedicated team at Sorn restaurant. I am also thankful to Thai farmers and fishermen who have consistently supplied us with top quality ingredients.”
Sorn has a focus on serving old recipes that have been lost in the modern age. It also has a focus on “local culinary wisdom”, and ingredients are sustainably sourced from a trusted network of farmers and fishermen. Most dishes are slow-cooked, and even the soup is double-boiled for 6 hours, according to Michelin Guide.
Sorn’s social media pages show photos of its colourful, elaborately arranged dishes. This includes red curries, and assortments of different vegetables and herbs served with meat, to name a few. The appetizers are served family style, spread out across several plates.
