Change of Taste – Dinner at the House of Sathorn, W Bangkok
To celebrate our last night in Bangkok, we headed over to the W Bangkok for a culinary treat at one of Asia’s Top 50 Restaurants: the Dining Room at the House of Sathorn. As delicious as Thai food may be, we were very much looking forward to a change of taste after spending 2 months in Thailand.
Our evening started with a stroll in the open-air garden. We couldn’t help but admire the contract between the historical setting and the infamous MahaNakhon building representing Bangkok’s modernity in the background. We later found out that the House on Sathorn also housed Thailand’s first Russian Embassy!
Just next to the Dining Room is one of the most beautiful bars that I have ever seen! Again, there is a stark contrast between the Thai heritage and modernity.
When it come time for dinner, we selected our seat right at the bar. This is the place to sit if you want to see all the action happen. We loved watching the chef and his team finalize plates before serving them to guests.
We were treated to the “Trip” menu which is the Chef’s vegetarian menu.
Our meal started off with a few Mezzes:
We couldn’t get enough of the freshly baked bread!
The tasting menu continued with dishes from Chef Tutak’s childhood. The tomato dish was my favorite. I was very surprised by the consistency of the goat cheese ice. I was pleasantly surprised by the goat cheese ice as it provided a very cool and refreshing sensation when mixed with the fresh tomato.
