Set to open in mid-November 2018, Paste Laos will emulate the flagship restaurant’s “heirloom Thai cuisine” and extend it to Laotian culinary culture and history.
“Historical Lao cuisine is layered with flavour and texture for which Paste has been recognised,” says Satongun. “Laos is a country with enormous pristine forests and unrestrained nature. The sparse, rural population, with as much connection to hunting and foraging as agriculture, fosters a strong connection to plant-centric cuisine and a clever, precise inherently sustainable approach to food.”
Paste Laos’ plant-based menu will feature seasonal local produce and traditional culinary techniques such as curing, pickling and fermentation, woven together with the chef’s signature contemporary flair.
