TBC Asia is proud to announce the launch of Gastro Odyssey – an exclusive monthly fine dining series where TBC Asia invites highly acclaimed chefs from renowned and MICHELIN-starred restaurants around the world to Singapore for a limited-time experience. Hosted at TBC Asia’s Private Dining Lounge in the prestigious District 9 of Singapore, the respective guest chefs will curate exquisite menus which will be paired with some of the finest wines.

The inaugural Episode 01 features Thai culinary sensation, Chef Sujira “Aom” Pongmorn who has a history of launching successful restaurants. As the former Chef de Cuisine at Saawaan, she has won and maintained 1-MICHELIN star from 2019 to 2022 and led to Chef Aom being awarded the first winner of Thailand’s MICHELIN Young Chef Award in 2021.

Her creations for TBC Asia are an interpretation of her own rich personal experiences coupled with her mastery of traditional Thai recipes handed down by culinary masters where each fusion is a blend of tradition and modernity, using only fresh, daily-sourced ingredients with some ingredients specifically air-flown to retain their authentic flavours.

Oyster Tom Krong

The star dish of this series – “Oyster Tom Krong,” is a modern adaptation of a local Thai delicacy, featuring an umami-rich broth with smoked and dried fish, fresh Thai herbs, and the briny taste of oysters. Chef Aom’s culinary journey adds a personal touch to the bespoke experience that defines TBC Asia.

The 4-night-only private gastronomy experience is a limited 3 lunch and 4 dinner sessions from 24th till 27th January 2024 with each session comprising only 12-seats. For Lunch, one can expect a 7-course menu priced at $388 nett and for Dinner, it is a culinary journey comprising a 10-course menu at $588 nett. Both sessions are to be accompanied and enhanced by expertly curated wine pairings.

Following Chef Aom, and continuing the Gastro Odyssey series at TBC Asia, Episode 02 in February will feature Chef Liu Zhen, known for his exceptional Ning Bo-style cuisine, from 1-MICHELIN Starred Yong Fu in Hong Kong. For Episode 03 in March, the spotlight turns to Chef Chumpol Jangprai from the much-heralded 2-MICHELIN Starred R-Haan in Bangkok. Chef Chumpol is a celebrated figure in Thai cuisine and notably created the Gala Dinner menu for the 29th APEC Summit in 2022.

It will be held at TBC Asia’s exclusive Private Dining Lounge. A venue that exudes a blend of exclusivity and quiet luxury set in a modern, contemporary Italian-Baroque chic. It’s a fitting venue for C-suite gatherings, VIP client appreciation events and bespoke private gatherings such as wine and whiskey appreciation sessions.

TBC Asia’s Gastro Odyssey is high in demand, with some sessions in January already sold out and only limited seats are still available for public booking. To book seats for Gastro Odyssey, please visit https://www.tbc.asia/gastro-odyssey.
