Local Aroi together with Local Alike (a social enterprise focusing on eco-tourism) and a renowned Thai Chef, Khun Book (Boonsmith Phukganasuk) who is known for his mouth-watering fusion dishes and Food TV programs, proudly create a new fine-dining experience which brings original indigenous menus to your table.
Experience of Local Alike showed us that countless local delicious Thai food remain unknown to many including the Thai people themselves. Therefore, the idea of Local Aroi has sparked.
Behind every dish is a rich culture. Local believes that allowing diners to taste the local flavours is a mean of cultural preservation. Our principle is that: the income must be generated to local communities. Therefore representatives from participating communities will be actively involved.
