The St. Regis Bora Bora Resort announces their newest restaurant on property, BAM BOO, one of several culinary destinations on-site. The restaurant revitalizes the resort’s Asian dining experience with the introduction of wok and teppanyaki options alongside guests’ longtime sushi favorites. Reimagined by Parisian designer Marc Hertrich, the renovated open kitchen faces a fully refurbished dining room in a subtly modern theme that places the emphasis on the delectable flavors and textures to be discovered on the plate.
“We’re thrilled to welcome BAM BOO to the St. Regis Bora Bora. Offering our guests a wide variety of culinary options and experiences remains one of our top priorities. Additionally, the redesign of the space further emphasizes the resort’s commitment to providing an unmatched dining experience,” said Richard Schilling, General Manager.
Traditional Chinese wok dishes such as Kung Pao chicken and Sichuan style shrimp star on the opening menu while local lagoon fish is revisited in a Chinese white wine marinade to be fried with green beans and pak choy for a lighter meal. BAM BOO’s head chef, Yacine Gorine worked at Yazhou in Beyrouth, an Asian restaurant owned by the Michelin-starred Pourcel brothers prior to joining The St. Regis Bora Bora Resort a year and a half ago. Before his promotion to BAM BOO, he travelled to Guangdong in China for extensive training in authentic Hong Kong cuisine with Chef Liew Rai, the Executive Chef at Sheraton Zhuhai and the future St. Regis Zhuhai, opening April 2018.
In charge of the Japanese menu, Sushi Chef Christopher Buenaventura will continue to sublimate the freshest caught fish with delicate flair. Sushi bestsellers include the Spicy Tuna and the Bora Roll, a composition of mahi mahi tempura, tobiko and raw Ahi tuna seasoned with Japanese mayonnaise. Variety is further enhanced with the addition of a Teppanyaki stove, visible from the counter seating, from which guests may order hot dishes including meat options.
More than ever, The St. Regis Bora Bora Resort is the destination of choice for the discerning palate where guests may explore differentiated gourmet experiences at four restaurants and two bars as well as 24-hour room service: signature fine dining over the water at Lagoon by Jean-Georges, traditional Italian at Far Niente, flavorful pan-Asian at BAM BOO and casual dining at Te Pahu main restaurant.
