You’re either in tune with Chef Riley’s gastronomical journeys or you’re impressively, shrouded in mystery. Either way, I am yet to meet a person that does not like or respect what Chef Riley Sanders is doing at Canvas restaurant in Thonglor.

After a long hiatus and some sad looking outdoor plants, Canvas Restaurant (Michelin 1*) re-emerges, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, with a menu which seemingly comes from a long time for reflection. Like the name suggests, Canvas is a blank slate to which one can paint and Chef Riley has been actually painting! See his work here @rileycanvas.

Not dissimilar in concept to his previous menu which saw technicolour splotches and brushstrokes on plates, Chef Riley has further built on his artist’s expression with even more explosive design and colour. These colours may be felt in the multiple layering of local ingredients, some to which are little used nowadays in Thai cuisine. Riley often finds a new technique or application for obscure ingredients which, as far as we know, has not been dreamed-of.

Without giving away which ingredients and details on taste, the journey comparative to the last experience feels a lot smoother, although the plate may suggest otherwise, remains is the composure among the chaos and Riley’s genius layering of flavours is fairly consistent throughout but there is certainly a wiser and more confident creator behind this new culinary exhibition.

What I can determine is more play on temperature and textures, on light and shade, but you’ll need to delve a little deeper, get right up close and personal with the edible canvas to appreciate the amount of detail that has gone into one single bite. And if you look even closer, you’ll see the heart hiding behind the sparkles…and it’s delicious!
