Renowned as the king of vegetables for its delicate flavour and high nutritional value, the first spears of imported white asparagus are highly prized by chefs. At Elements you can savour special recipes including steamed white asparagus with yuzu beurre blanc, toasted nori, shimeji purée and mitsuba. You can also enjoy a flavourful soup of white asparagus with foie gras royale and macha. Our knowledgeable sommelier has paired the dishes with Austrian Grüner Veltliner, available by the glass from Baht 400++ and by the bottle for Baht 1,900++
White asparagus is grown completely buried in the ground. Deprived of light, it doesn’t produce chlorophyll. The result is thick white stalks with a milder flavour and more luxurious texture than its green counterpart. This healthy springtime vegetable is also a great source of nutrients, including fibre, folic acid, calcium, iron and vitamin K. At Elements you may choose to dine indoor or alfresco on the expensive deck and take in the fabulous city view. The enticing menu of international cuisine is prepared by gifted chefs in an open kitchen.
The special white asparagus dishes are priced from Baht 500++. Available daily from 6 p.m. – 10:30 p.m., 1 May – 30 June 2016 at Elements on the 25th floor of The Okura Prestige Bangkok.
