This August, celebrated chefs from Montage Los Cabos’ acclaimed Thai-inspired Talay restaurant, bring its street food truck style to Montage Laguna Beach’s Studio Garden to offer Orange County locals and visitors a signature Thai culinary journey.

Taste of Talay – Montage Los Cabos’ Favorite Thai Restaurant Pops Up at Montage Laguna Beach

ORANGE COUNTY, CALIF. This summer, Montage Laguna Beach’s Studio Garden will transform into Talay, a signature pop-up culinary experience from sister property, Montage Los Cabos. Talay is known for its lush outdoor setting, a pumping heartbeat of laid-back beats curated by the chef himself, and lines out its door filled with both locals and resort guests eager to taste its authentic Thai dishes. Montage Los Cabos has become known for some of the best culinary pop-ups to date with the world’s most accomplished chefs, such as Dominque Crenn and Chef Mauro Colagreco so, it is only fitting that the next pop-up would be its own culinary star.

Food & Wine Mexico’s Best New Chef of 2020, Chef Marc Narongchai will trade his Baja resort oasis on the edge of Santa Maria Bay for the cliffside setting of Montage Laguna Beach offering diners views of the Pacific. The Bangkok-born chef will bring Talay’s authentic Thai street food to the resort for a limited time. Featuring a distinct, contemporary style along with a sense of authenticity, wild creativity, and appreciation for the traditional culture, customs, and ingredients of Thailand, Talay is complete with fire-grilled favorites and cocktails inspired by one-of-a-kind Southeast Asian flavor. Orange County locals and guests will only be able to visit Talay for just over a month this summer, beginning August 4 and can expect a full sensory experience including signature dishes such as Charcoal Grilled Satay Chicken, Khao Soi Spicy Crab Noodles, and the Gaeng Ka-Ti Yellow Fish Curry.

Talay at Montage Laguna Beach will be available August 4 to September 10, 2022 from 5 to 9 p.m. daily. Reservations are highly encouraged. Please call Montage Laguna Beach dining reservations team at (949) 715-6420 to make a reservation.
