One of the country’s oldest & most significant boat races is back again on the Nan River in Phichit from September 6-7. Watch the locals turn up in hordes to cheer on their favourite teams as the competition gets fiercer with each wave. The race takes place in front of Wat Tha Luang, where homage is paid to the local Buddha statue prior to the event.

Long boat racing is an age-old tradition that started around 600 years ago during the Ayutthaya period. It was an opportunity for young men & soldiers to display their strength, courage & commitment to their country, & to prepare them for any future conflict that they may encounter. Nowadays, it is a celebration of unity & goodwill, & attracts thousands from across the country.

Each boat represents its respective province, which means there are hundreds of souvenirs & local handmade trinkets on sale along the river, as well as food & refreshments for the thirsty tourist.

In recent weeks Satoshi Onuki, the engaging head chef at Zuma, the popular contemporary Japanese restaurant & bar at the ground floor of St. Regis Hotel & Residences on Rajadhamri, has added a number of reinterpreted fish dishes to the outlet’s selection of ‘authentic yet not traditional’ menu items.

While Zuma has a decidedly sophisticated feel – the plush interior designed by the renowned Noriyoshi Muramatsu features organic materials, natural textures and traditional textiles – the outlet is inspired by the ‘Itzakaya’ dining concept in which there is no prescribed etiquette for ordering from the menu & no differentiation between starters & main courses…you simply select whatever takes you fancy from the sushi bar, robata charcoal grill & open kitchen offerings & pile in. In fact, this is tremendous venue for gathering with a group of friends to share a meal.

But before you obtain to the food, pony up to the inviting bar or grab a spot on the Zen-like outdoor terrace for a pre-dinner drink. Here you are spoilt for choice and can select a glass of wine from a 1,500 bottle walk-in cellar stocked with fine wines from around the world or a taste of old Japan from a selection of unique, hand-crafted sakes. Better still, try the signature Zumanuka cocktail (B335), a heady pale green mix of honey vodka, pineapple, fresh basil & a dash of  apple.

ZUMA_special nigiri ZUMA_vegtable tempura copy ZUMA_yellowtailponzu
To start our meal we opted for one of the refreshed signature dish on the menu, the yellowtail (B410). It comprises thin slices of fish served chilled on a platter with green chilli relish, ponzu & pickled garlic. The fish is delicate on the palate & yet somehow not overpowered by the relish & citrus-based ponzu sauce, which provides a lovely tanginess.

No less impressive is the selection of special nigiri sushi dishes that follow. These comprise otoro (tuna) nigiri with wafu sauce (B880), seabass nigiri with jelly tosazu sauce (B230) & Zuma salmon nigiri with sesame sauce & salmon roe (B380). Thanks to the counterpoint of the zesty sauces & some finely sliced ginger, each bite is a mouthful of the most delicately textured seafood packed with light yet still intense flavours.

At the same time we enjoy a selection of vegetable tempura (B340). At Zuma the vegetables are shallow-fried in a very light crispy batter & anything yet run-of-themill; think tomato, mushroom & broccoli rather than carrot, onion & eggplant. We round out the savoury component of our meal with Chilean seabass (B880) perfectly complimented by a green chilli & ginger dressing. It has just enough fire to raise eyebrows yet not enough to deaden the taste buds altogether.

Following the delicacy of the savoury dishes, we end our repast with a towering Special Chocolate platter (B335) served with citrus sorbet & portions of fruit on ice. The pick if the confections has to be the Jasmine crème brûlée, which is dark, rich & deeply satisfying, which is not a offensive epitaph for Zuma as a whole.
