The Café at Hyatt Regency Highlights The Best of Thai Flavors
Thai cuisine is taking center stage at The Café, the interactive show-kitchen restaurant of Hyatt Regency Manila, City of Dreams, for “A Taste of Thai” from September 9 to 22, 2019.
Staged with Thai Airways and the Tourism Authority of Thailand, The Café’s A Taste of Thai features Thai guest chef Siriluck Lekkwan, Grand Hyatt Macau’s Thai Chef de Cuisine, and her specialty dishes that reflect the rich culinary traditions of her hometown.
Chef Siriluck Lekkwan
Chef Lekkwan is a renowned chef of Thai cuisine, with over two decades of experience in professional hotel kitchens under her belt. She also had the honor of preparing meals for the Thai royal family.

The well-respected chef is also affectionately called “Chef Mum” for her generous warmth and care of all those around her, which is also reflected in her personal attention to each diner, catering to individual preferences.
Her cooking is rooted in the traditional fare of her hometown Bangkok, where she first learned from her earliest culinary mentor—her grandmother, a local chef who cooked in the royal kitchens of King Rama V.
Over the years, Chef Lekkwan’s dishes are described as “refined yet comforting; exquisite yet homey.”
