The Smokaccia Laboratory by Chef Luca

An amazing restaurant in Surin Beach

The Smokaccia by Chef Luca is an amazing little restaurant located by the roadside in Surin Beach. The concept entirely based on sourdough is as surprising as it is delicious. At first, we were a bit curious about how sourdough could be the main ingredient of every dish on the menu (except for desserts).

We love sourdough, but because we were unfamiliar with this unique concept, we wrongly imagined something halfway between sandwich and bun bread, probably quite heavy, but we were surprised to discover such a light texture. Our first experience with Chef Luca’s creation, the Smokaccia, was a revelation.

The menu features many different Smokaccias, so since were new to us, we went for the one marked on the menu as “the Popular”: Smokaccia local Burrata & Parma Ham (500 baht): Rosemary Smokaccia with Burrata from Nonthaburi, 24-month aged parm ham from Italy and local wild rocket.

Your dish is cold smoked at your table and served with different oils and dips if you want to experience different taste variations. The bread is light and crisp outside, and that unique smokey taste added to the fresh ingredients selected was an eye-opener. This was unlike anything we had tried before: It was so good, fresh and light.

We can’t wait to go back and try all 7 or 8 other specialities on the list: Smokaccia Pepperoni, Smokaccia Crunchy Fresh Fish, Smokaccia Soft Pork Belly (Chef’s favourite!), Smokaccia Rocking Lobster, SmokacciaSurfing Wagyu, Smokaccia Cheesy Truffle Mushroom and even Smokaccia Veganilicious! We enjoyed our Smokaccia with an excellent La Marchesana Primitivo 2020, served at perfect room temperature.

Apart from the ham, all the ingredients are organic and carefully selected all around Thailand. Then we treated ourselves to a deliciously light Creme Brulee to end our lunch. Once again, it was such a surprise, and we wondered why we had waited so long to try Smokaccia!

If you are in Surin, stop and try Chef Luca’s amazing creations for lunch, but you should really try the dinner menu, you won’t regret it!
