David Tamburini – Following his recent position as Executive Chef at Giando Italian Restaurant, Hong Kong, David’s passion for food, its preparation and cooking, combined with his continuing strong interest in Asia led him to Thailand. Back in Sicily, David studied the different components and traditional recipes of southern Italy and expressed his desire to give to them a more contemporary ﬂavour, whilst developing a personal cooking style based upon the respective ingredients and techniques. Creative flair, a combination of traditional Italian recipes and his own renowned creations will form the basis of David’s menu at La Scala. “It is indeed a great honour to be part of The Sukhothai family at such an iconic restaurant as La Scala, and I want to satisfy our diners with truly contemporary Italian flavours he says.
La Scala is a triumph of innovative design, the award-winning La Scala is highly coveted for classic and progressive Italian cuisine with fine European wines. The beautiful poolside setting is a bold statement in contemporary décor subtly infused with The Sukhothai’s cultural heritage, and showcases an open kitchen, private room and a bar with a wine cellar. Great care is taken to ensure that the wines present the best choices to match selections, as well as to represent an excellent selection of Italy and from around the world.
