The award-winning Montara Hospitality hotel group has unveiled its new innovative F&B concept: JAMPA.
Montara has decided to launch this new project, which follows the recent success of other brands such as PRU, within its next wellness-focused community Tri Vananda.
Quentin Fougeroux, Group Director of Food and Beverage, says JAMPA is an exciting project focusing on local ingredients, live fire, and zero waste cuisine.
It will also play a key role in the Tri Vananda community house, Fougeroux added, describing it as a gathering place where food and crafts reign.
Named after the aromatic native Phuket flower Magnolia Champaka and the village where the group’s farm is located, JAMPA has a culinary team aspiring to position the restaurant at the forefront of culinary innovation.
It will transform local ingredients into first-class culinary creations using only live fire and focusing on healthy, balanced, and good for the soul food.
From Madison in Bangkok, Chef Rick Dingen will lead the JAMPA team, experimenting with new ingredients for creative outdoor kitchen ideas.
The restaurant will be located in Tri Vananda’s Community House, allowing the wellness community’s residents to participate in projects about sustainability and gastronomy.
It will also have a state-of-the-art bar offering drinks beneficial to health, mind, and body.
Additionally, JAMPA will have an exciting zero-waste grocery store that gives diners the opportunity to sample the day’s harvest, freshly baked bread, and more.
The zero-waste, no plastic grocery will also allow people to connect with the community through homemade products, herbs and fruits harvested on the day, vegan and local cheeses, as well as some exclusive products available at refill stations.
Also, a group of expert chefs will always be available to teach people how to get the most out of each product.
The restaurant appeared in the “Newest Opening” section of Phuket 25 Top Restaurants by Amazing Thailand.
It’s also the first in Phuket to achieve zero waste in the landfill cuisine, as its team breaks down all its waste to ensure nothing goes to the landfill.
