The new venue, named Pi Kun, opens alongside the reopening of Table 38, which won a Michelin star in 2020.
Andy Yang, a Thailand-born star chef who soaked up a Michelin star in New York for his restaurant Rong Tiam in 2010, is now opening a new restaurant at Siam Discovery. The new venture is named Pi Kun and will focus on Isaan food, using pork as the star ingredient in a nose-to-tail concept that tries to reduce waste. The opening is also happening alongside the reopening of Table 38, the uber-fine-dining restaurant from Andy that was once housed on Sukhumvit 38 and won a Michelin star in 2020. If you show up with a party of four, you get a free tam koh maha saap (papaya salad with crispy dough). Regardless, other highlight dishes include the signature kao pikun (smoked-coconut milk rice with grilled pork and a special jaew sauce from Chef Andy), kao moo tod makhwaen (fried pork with smoked-coconut milk rice and Thai herbs), and leng zaab (hot and spicy pork bone).
The interior is a colorful mishmash of Isaan inspired tapestries, dark wood chairs with floral silk patterns, sturdy wooden tables and hardwood floors. There is also a brightly back-lit bar, covered in more decorations in between bottles, where the bar team can be seen strolling back and forth whipping up drinks.
