On September 15th a special gathering was held at the InterContinental Hua Hin Resort & Spa’s beachfront Azure restaurant to inaugurate their new Signature Cocktails and “From the Farm & The Sea to the Table” menu.”
Joseph and his consulting group “Sip Slowly” have worked with some of the top five-star hotels, extraordinary resorts, and exceptional restaurants around the world for close to 5 years. He has designed all of the specialty cocktails for Ashley Sutton’s bars (Iron Fairies, Maggie Choo’s etc.) and he has his own Bangkok speakeasy called J. Boroski. Joseph has also designed the signature cocktails for Hua Hin’s Vana Nava Sky which is owned by the InterContinental Hua Hin’s parent company, Proud Real Estate.
For the InterContinental’s Azure Bar, Boroski has taken inspiration from diverse ports of call, such as the Amalfi coast, Cape Town and the French Riviera. A few of the favorites that were served during the night included “A Kick in the Frangipani” which is made with the InterCon’s proprietary house whisky which is a blend of Scotch, Bourbon and Irish Whiskey and married to Thai cashew orgeat, fresh imported lemon and blooming fragrant frangipanis. Another favorite was the “Yom’s Mango” made with Tequila, fresh mango puree, lime, dried chili salt & dried mango skin. Boroski has created 12 original specialty cocktails for Azure that shouldn’t be missed.
Azure’s new restaurant menu supports the hotel’s commitment to local sustainability by making the most of locally-grown fruits and vegetables, top-quality meats from nearby farms and fresh caught seafood supplied by the area’s surrounding fishing villages. Diners can play their part in supporting this commitment while feasting at Azure’s signature Raw Bar, where local island oysters and jumbo prawns are showcased alongside premium imported delicacies.
At their Azure Fish market, you can grab a basket and take your pick from fresh local seafood and organic greens, all produced primarily from right here in Hua Hin. Highlights include fresh crabs, lobsters, prawns, clams, fish, scallops, sea urchin and imported seasonal oysters at the oyster bar. Once you have made your choices their chefs will create outstanding dishes prepared according to your desired cooking method with complimentary stir-fried vegetable and a sauce of your choice.
Guests at the September 15th celebration enjoyed many new menu items including their signature standout Tomahawk Steak. At 1.3 Kg, the Australian grain-fed steak is roasted with garlic, vine tomatoes and roasted vegetable and served with 3 choices of side dishes and sauces.
The sumptuous meal was finished off with the Azure Grand Desert Platter which consists of a Chocolate Dome, Tiramisu, Cheese Cake, Fresh Fruit Skewers and Chocolate Praline.
A great night was had by all in attendance celebrating the Inter Continental Hua Hin’s new Azure beach front restaurant offerings.
