An avid food and travel blogger with a keen sense for fashion, Serina has experienced some of the top Michelin star restaurants during her worldwide travels.
This year alone she’s visited Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Switzerland, France, Oman, Turkey, Jordan, Singapore, India, and Malaysia. She was recently in Thailand to create a menu for the Vegetarian Festival at the Grand Hyatt Erawan. Upcoming travel destinations include Italy and Monaco.
Some of her favorite Michelin star dining experiences have been: Le Louis XV by Alain Ducasse in Monte Carlo (3-Michelin restaurant),
Rang Mahal by Atul Kochhar in Dubai (michelin-starred chef), Yam Tcha by Adeline Grattard in Paris (michelin-starred chef) and Babbo in New York City (1-michelin restaurant)
Serina is no stranger to fashion since she comes from a family that’s had a string presence in the fashion industry for several generations.
She explains how dress codes generally reflect the style of the chrf or restaurant, “I met the chef, Adelin Grattard, when I lunched at her restaurant Yam Tcha in Paris. She, herself, seemed very laid-back so the restaurant exuded a very chilled vibe hence people were dressed down but not with a whole lot of chic.”
When it comes to her own outfits, Serina tends to dress according to the ambience & vibe of the restaurant and whether it’s lunch or dinner time.
“I visited Yam Tcha in Paris last summer for lunch and dressed casual chic – printed crop top, high wasted pants, light chiffon cardigan & sandals. It was rather fitting. However when I visited Le Louis for dinner in Monte Carlo, it was extremely posh so I wore an elegant black dress with super high pumps and carried a pashmina shawl in my hands. So I really go by what I know about style of the restaurant I’ll be visiting before I decide what to wear,” says Serina.
