Elements: One Michelin Star East-meets-West dining

Jun 15, 2019

Elements is inspired by Ciel Bleu, the two-star Michelin restaurant in Okura Amsterdam Element Hotel, in the Netherlands. 

In Bangkok, Elements offers the finest dining, created by a Thai chef experienced in authentic French cuisine, whose dishes use a selection of prime ingredients from Japan and all over the world.

The uniqueness of Elements comes from the skilful combination of cuisines from two of the world’s most renowned food cultures: France and Japan.

Diners can admire the skills of the chefs as their food is prepared in the open kitchen, while those who prefer more intimacy can choose to be seated on the terrace outside.

Last February, Elements held the tasting for its new menu, called Takumi. Takumi is a Japanese word meaning “artisan”. Elements was determined to select the ingredients from small production sources to create the tasting menus, which were in two sets: a menu of six courses called Ta-Ke and a seven-dish menu called Matsu.

Both menus start with the signature Amuse Bouche before the first dish. The Amuse Bouche represents the four elements - earth, water, air and fire - in line with the restaurant’s name. Japanese soy gypsum with white sesame sauce, served with parmesan cheese toast represents air, whereas the fried chicken skin and Japanese eel stands for water. A macaroon stuffed with mackerel tartar and ginger pickle represents fire, and Japanese pumpkin and Botan shrimp with pumpkin sauce and seaweed on top represents earth.

The new dish in the Ta-Ke set is cod grilled with sake cream, served with risotto rice and white miso sauce. The set includes four types of Japanese mushrooms,:Maitake, Chimaji, Enoki pickle and fried Orinji, paired with mushroom sauce.

The Matsu set serves Hokkaido scallops with watercress, fermented Suzuki fish with sous vide combu seaweed served with octopus tentacles and octopus soup, stewed rib served with Japanese radish pickle, lettuce pickle, plum and parsley oil. The optional menu for meat lovers is Japanese A3 sirloin, grilled according to your preference and served with minced purple eggplant, miso sauce and wasabi.



“Takumi” - Ta-Ke 6 course menu (4,000++ baht) and Matsu 7 course menu (4,400++baht). For Japanese sirloin menu, add 800++ baht. In addition, Elements Restaurant also offers a set menu, starting from 2,400++ baht per person.
