With a cuisine as diverse as the region, the Mekong Navigator will redefine the culinary standards on the rivers of Southeast Asia.
Culinary Director, Chef Jorg Penneke, a renowned culinary expert who has served guests aboard many of the 5-star river and ocean lines of the world, is honored to bring his wealth of expertise to our guests. Chef Penneke has innovatively created a menu which highlights the French-Indochine inspired cuisine of the region, as well as Western favorite that will be reflected in sumptuous buffets and artfully prepared, multi-course dinners. Guests will also enjoy specially chosen, complimentary, house wines during dinner.
The culinary ream will offer an occasional shopping excursions to local markets, taking every opportunity to utilize the fresh, local fruits and vegetables throughout the voyage. You will also be invited to join a hands-on culinary experience: learn how to make Pho, a traditional Vietnamese noodle soup; or Cambodia’s national dish, Amok, a mild, curried fish prepared in coonut milk steamed in banana leaves.
