“I’m so thrilled to be in Thailand and Phuket for the first time and looking forward to showcasing some of Oriole’s signature dishes while incorporating some of the finest local ingredients like the Phuket Tiger Prawn and Thai herbs into the menu,” Sandoval told reporters.

He will be offering an eight-course Tasting Menu for Btt5,000-plus excluding drinks featuring, among other delights, Golden Osetra Caviar with Kampachi, Saffron and Coconut; Aged Hamachi Nigiri with Fermented Truffle Honey and Fresh Wasabi; Phuket Tiger Prawn with Makrut Lime, Mint, and Caramel and Halibut with Phuket Beer, Bok Choy, and Genmai.
