Jahn at Conrad Koh Samui, today celebrates winning three global awards at the World Luxury Restaurant Awards 2016 by presenting a new tasting menu. Created by Conrad Koh Samui’s Executive Chef, Amporn Choeng-Ngam, the impressive dinner menu is named the ‘Journey of Jahn’.
This dinner menu harmoniously combines traditional Thai cooking techniques and flavours to offer guests an opportunity to try some of Thailand’s most traditional dishes.
Inspired by a story of a local fisherman, farmer, and hunter who lived a simple life on a tropical Thai island, Chef Amporn carefully crafted the five-course Journey of Jahn so that each dish would celebrate the culture and produce of Koh Samui. He thoughtfully selected and worked with local ingredients such as fresh coconut, red tuna, and lobster to match with old and new world wines.
The Journey of Jahn dinner menu comprises of: Amuse Bouche – 3 kinds of Thai snacks; Toong Thong, Miang Kum, and Por-Pia Thod. These famous Thai hors d’oeuvres are served in canapé style. Appetizers – Plaa Pla Bai Bua: seared red tuna with Thai herbs, lemon and mint sauce. This creation is inspired by a story of a fisherman who starts his daily routine early in the morning, catching fish to eat and to sell at the fresh market. Chef serves this dish on a misted-lotus leaf, reminiscent of the morning dew.
