In Chiang Mai, the first Sunday of every month is a special occasion for discerning foodies. The reason for this is that the Favola Restaurant at the city’s Le Meridien Hotel is the venue for a gourmet brunch. The Brunch Exclusivo provides diners with a culinary voyage of Thai and international specials featuring the likes of foie gras, oysters, premium cold cuts and cheeses, and the barbecued meats.
This coming Sunday is the first one in September. The Brunch Exclusivo is available between 11:30 and 15:30 and costs THB1,999 per person. Champagne is the perfect accompaniment to the delicious food on offer and costs THB999 a glass. Those wishing to share can buy a whole bottle of the bubbly for THB1,999.
The Favola is one of three onsite eateries at Le Meridien Chiang Mai. It serves Italian cuisine and boasts a wine cellar of 1,000-plus bottles. The other two eateries at the hotel are the Latest Recipe and the Latitude 18 lobby lounge. Le Meridien is located on Chang Klan Road and is just down from the Night Bazaar.
