With his all-new expanded menu selection diners are sure to experience a refreshingly new gastronomic journey underpinned by the exceptional taste of authentic Japanese cuisine.
Chef Pichai will lead the expert culinary team at Kohaku, and together they will offer guests a remarkable variety of constantly changing menus which will maintain the reputation and quality of Kohaku Japanese Restaurant. He will also oversee all the unique Japanese cuisine of the hotel’s banqueting services.
Ms. May Myat Mon Win, General Manager of Chatrium Hotel Royal Lake Yangon, said “We’re very excited to introduce his innovative culinary creations to our patrons and introduce the truly authentic taste of Japanese cuisine to all Myanmarese people, and I believe guests will adore his new Japanese-based fusion dishes that he will introduce over the next few months.”
Chef Pichai’s culinary passion started at a very young age by helping his grandmother to make sushi rolls in her kitchen at weekends. With a culinary journey of over 30 years in international 5-star hotel chains and other well-known Japanese restaurants in Bangkok (Thailand), Tel Aviv-Yafo, Jerusalem (Israel) and Yangon (Myanmar) prior to joining Chatrium Hotel Royal Lake Yangon, he is inspired to bring Japanese fusion cuisine and a modern dining experience through ‘a borderless culinary journey’.
We at Chatrium Hotel Royal Lake Yangon invite all of our valued guests to explore Chef Pichai’s exquisitely crafted Japanese cuisine at our award-winning Kohaku Japanese Restaurant. Chef Pichai’s personal recommendations and must-try dishes include Kaiseki Sets, Kohaku Bento Set, Sashimi, Beef Teppanyaki, Ramen, Beef Tataki and Rock Shrimp Tempura just to name but a few tempting delights.
The Welcoming Ceremony for Chef Pichai took place on July 4th.
