A Bangkok takeover right in the heart of KL gave us a weekend of awesome flavors and unforgettable experiences!

W Kuala Lumpur and W Bangkok came together on the 27th of may to provide a mix of local and Thai inspired cuisine at the Social Table.

Incredible Local and Thai flavors
Each chef prepared 4 dishes that emphasized the flavors of their home country. We thoroughly enjoyed the Coconut Umbut by Chef Suhalmi, and the Hoy Lord Ped Sauce from Chef Joe. The former was a scallop, shell and all, served on dry ice, with a spinach sauce, giving the dish an earthy and umami combo. The latter was tender razor clam with a tasty and spicy sambal like sauce, which had stronger Thai flavor from what we assume was lemon grass.

Trademark Cocktails
The dining event was not the only thing that marked a Bangkok takeover. The night before, mixologist Pakorn Jatinai (Golf) from The Bar on House of Sathorn wowed cocktail enthusiasts with several signature mixes.

Beats by the Pool
A pool party would be the best way to draw the curtains on the Bangkok takeover, and that's exactly what happened. The Bangkok invaders along with local DJ's made for a truly energetic music event, which was made even more lively thanks to the talented mixologists of W Kuala Lumpur.
