Samuay & Sons is located in the Isan region (north-east) of Thailand in the city of Udon Thani. Founded in 2014, the restaurant focuses on traditional Thai cuisine re-created using the twists and turns of modern technique. Samuay & Sons believe that cuisine itself is a rich form living history and Chef Num is fascinated by the challenge of bringing the past to meet the present in order shape the next chapter of Thai cuisine.
Chef Num follows a philosophy of discovering forgotten foods and plants from by gone eras and brings this passion and curiosity back to the tables of his guests. 80% of the produce used by Samuay & Sons is grown in the local organic farm, and the remaining foods are found from many sources such as foraging in special educational events held across different parts of Thailand.
The Chef & the Brigade
“Each day I learn more about local ingredients from the Thai biodiversity, and at the same time I gain more knowledge about the importance of our local wisdom. I am inspired by the nature that surrounds me, which in turn creates each the dish that tells its own individual story. This is my philosophy of cooking.”
That was almost decade ago in U.S.A, where he worked his way up from culinary school to some of top restaurants in San Francisco. He then returned to his motherland to learn more about Thai cuisine. Opening a restaurant outside of a big city, Chef Num began to see and focus upon more of the true elements within nature and the environment, also allowing him the time to crystallize his vision regarding the style of cooking he wished to create
