Celebrated Turkish chef Tolgar Mireli is back at luxury boutique hotel 137 Pillars Suites & Residences Bangkok with preparations for an unparalleled experience in Turkish cuisine and culture that coincides with Turkey’s National Day on October 29.



“Culinary Delights from Turkey” is co-sponsored by Turkish Airlines and will feature gala dinners at the restaurant Nimitr on the 27th floor on October 26 and 27.

Each will feature a different five-course set menu priced at Bt3,000-plus for food only and Bt4,000-plus for dishes paired with wine. 

Among the tempting dishes will be hummus (cumin-flavoured chickpea puree), manti (meat-stuffed mini-dumplings with sumac), slow-cooked lamb shoulder wrapped in kadayif with garlic pilaf, a traditional pumpkin dessert with tahini and walnuts, and cream-stuffed dried apricots and figs. 

Chef Mireli earned critical acclaim at the Fourth Asian Organic Gourmet Festival earlier this year at 137 Pillars Suites & Residences. He has worked in some of the best restaurants around the world, including Michel Roux Jr’s Le Gavroche in London, the first British restaurant to be awarded three Michelin stars. 

He has also put in time at the two-Michelin-star and four-Gault Millau toque restaurant Hubertus in Austria, and at German chef Johann Lafers’ Michelin-star Le Val d’Or. 

Diners at the gala dinners get to participate in a lucky draw for a chance to win two round-trip business-class tickets to Europe sponsored by Turkish Airlines.
