Chef-owners Dylan Jones of Bo.Lan, May Chow of Little Bao, Rangsima Bunyasaranand of Little Beast and Thitid Tassanakajohn of Le Du

We joined May Chow of Little Bao on Sunday night at her Bangkok branch for a family-style modern Chinese feast. In celebration of being named Asia’s Best Female Chef by Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants, she invited some of her local chef and bartender friends to put together a banquet of one-off Thai-Chinese platters paired with speciality cocktails. With Thitid Tassanakajohn of Le Du, Rangsima Bunyasaranand of Little Beast, Dylan Jones of Bo.Lan, Jamie Rhind of Bamboo, Saimai Natarat of Bunker, Somkanay Singha of Bootleggers (and of course Chow herself) under one roof, 8-Hands-Banquet was definitely a foodie party to remember. Here are some pictures highlighting our favourite moments from the night.
