Bangkok restaurant Sühring entered the Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants list at No.13 this year, less than 12 months after opening. We caught up with the Sühring chef twins to find out how they wooed a Thai audience with their inventive modern German food.
Most husband-and-wife or sibling teams in the restaurant industry take on different roles so as not to clash: one is the business brain, the other the creative; or one is in the kitchen, the other front of house. But at Bangkok restaurant Sühring, identical twin chefs Mathias and Thomas Sühring perform exactly the same roles all of the time, and most people can’t tell them apart.
“Since we’re twins and not brothers, we’re very connected to each other and most of the things throughout our life we’ve done together,” says Thomas. “We create dishes together, so there’s no separation of who does what.”
