Dusit International’s signature Thai restaurant brand Benjarong offers guests and residents of Dubai and Abu Dhabi an exciting culinary event: Contemporary Thai, a 6-course tasting menu by its newly appointed Group Chef of Thai Cuisine, Chef Morten Boejstrup Nielsen.

Chef Morten, formerly of Michelin-starred Nahm Restaurant in London and Sra Bua by Kiin Kiin in Bangkok, is based at the flagship Benjarong branch at Dusit Thani Bangkok. He specialises in combining modern techniques with traditional flavour profiles to produce contemporary dishes that are distinctly Thai at heart.

This will be his inaugural visit to the Dusit properties in the UAE, first visiting Dusit Thani Dubai on 6 & 7 February, followed by two nights at Dusit Thani Abu Dhabi on 13 & 14 February.

Menu highlights for this limited engagement include Seared Foie Gras with Ginger, Tamarind and Five Spice, Monkfish with Zucchini Blossom and Green Curry and Baby Langoustine with Satay Spice and Pickled Cauliflower. An optional wine pairing will also be available, with each wine specially chosen to enhance the flavour of each dish.

“We are very pleased to have Chef Morten join the Dusit family,” says Dusit International Group Director of Food and Beverage, Mr Joseph Polito. “With his impressive pedigree and creative culinary talents, we look forward to Chef Morten taking our Thai cuisine concept to new heights.”
