A fresh take on Cantonese cuisine
" Mott 32 is known as the best Chinese restaurant in Bangkok "
Mott 32, the Bangkok branch of the beloved Hong Kong restaurant at The Standard Hotel, is absolutely one of the hottest tickets in town. Famed for its long queues to get in, Mott 32 is known as the best Chinese restaurant in Bangkok. For good reason: its world-famous signature Peking duck is roasted over apple wood then carved via a patented technique designed to lock in maximum juiciness.
Luckily for us, our Bailliage managed to secure space for our very own unique Chaîne event which was attended by the capital’s most discerning gourmets.
Named after the New York City address that hosted the city’s very first Chinese business in 1891, Mott 32 specializes in tweaking traditional Chinese specialties into flavours familiar yet surprising.
Our wine pairing sought to achieve the same effect. Dim sum was accompanied with glasses of chilled champagne, triple-cooked Angus beef short ribs with a lively Beaujolais, the aforementioned Peking duck with Gevrey-Chambertin.
