Key Concept ...
Maison Chin Where East Meets West Cuisine is now what Christopher Driver calls “the collision of food worlds over the past generation” has resulted in a permanent cross-fertilisation.” Our initial reluctance to sample the new is rapidly being overcome, and our cooking is being revitalized by an uncharacteristic openness to foreign ingredients and techniques. These changes are far more noticeable now that they were twenty years ago in Bangkok.
The number and variety of restaurants featuring cosmopolitan and fusion cuisines have grown impressively. This melding of the familiar and exotic is part of a growing trends toward what I called “East-West Cuisines” in 1980, a cooking style blending compatible ingredients and techniques that were formerly isolated within Asian or European kitchens. Its increasing acceptance is no doubt related to the influence of la nouvelle cuisine, an approach that consciously draws upon foreign foods, flavours and techniques, and to the increasing internationalization of so many aspects of modern life especially here in Bangkok.
At Maison Chin, we work together to bring a style of cooking that is a natural blending of cuisines of the Asia and Europe that reflects the tasty multi-cultural experience of Bangkok today. We will strive to delight your palate with a touch of creativity, discovery, and the enjoyment of simple pleasures of eating.
I wish you a happy voyage on this culinary adventure at Maison Chin.
