Chef Sombat Kokasemkul
Chef Sombat Kokasemkul began his career as a cook in Thailand before establishing a name for himself in the culinary scene in Malaysia. Having worked with numerous renowned hotels in Bangkok and later trained with Executive Chef Thiti Thammanatr in 2007, he is now Executive Chef of NEO Tamarind specialising in modern and creative Thai cuisine. A skilled chef with a great sense of humour, Sombat's 'guess-tronomy' makes dining both a fun and visual experience. He not only produces beautiful modern Thai dishes that are delicious but the surprisingly clever, sometimes quirky spins he puts in his contemporary Thai cuisine has made him 'the naughty chef'. While everything on his plate is edible, he would ask you to 'put it in your mouth and take a wild guess'. His food for thought? - it's not always what it seems.
