We were invited to a cocktail party at the Ma Du Zi Hotel. Ma Du Zi is a stunning boutique hotel in the heart of the Sukhumvit and Asoke junction. When I say 'stunning', I mean that it is unique and nothing comes close to it in terms of design. They can also rightfully claim to have the largest beds in Bangkok...maybe in Thailand. You can fit a family of 10 in their beds.
Sorry, back to the party. The reason why Ma Du Zi invited guest for a cocktail party is to introduce & to meet their new Japanese chef who will be the new chef for their French restaurant 'La Truffe'. What an amazing idea to have a Japanese chef cooking French food. I do not want to call it fusion food; but more like French food with Japanese flair. I am sure it is going to be a huge hit.
The loungy area of the hotel. A very comfortable room with large sofas, a large B&O television and beautiful Buddhas watching over the room.

The roast beef being cut by one of the staff. The beef was amazingly tender, juicy and tasty. On top of that; what the chef is also famous for is his rendition of Bouillabaise. It was a blend of French, Japanese & Chinese influences. It tasted so good. The sneak preview of how the meat will be cooked and served as well at the fine tasting Bouillabaise at La Truffe was so interesting that we are already thinking when we should go for dinner to try the real thing out.

We are looking forward to trying out La Truffe. For sure I will blog about it for your reading pleasure.
