Philosophy

TAAN PHILOSOPHY

TAAN prides itself on working closely with independent local farmers, whose high-quality, seasonal ingredients provide the inspiration for our ever-changing menu. The name TAAN comes from the Thai word meaning “to have a meal” and it is also a play on pra-taan, which means leader or head of a group. Pra-taan is chief/leader which we honor our farmers as the leader of our food. Believing that behind every ingredient there is an important story to be told, it is our goal to connect Thailand’s tireless food artisans with an adventurous new generation of diners. TAAN’s ingredient-driven menu highlights familiar Thai flavors, inspired by hyper-local ingredients and prepared using timeless cooking techniques, but brought into the present day through unexpected combinations and creative presentation.
