[Bangkok] Roast

Arguably one of Bangkok’s hottest brunch spots, Roast hits all the right spots with its subtle but uncomplicated flavors and the relaxed but lively vibe, making it a perfect destination for whiling away a casual weekend afternoon.

[Bangkok] Soei ร้านเส่ย

Tucked away in an old residential neighborhood in Phaya Thai, Soei is definitely not something tourists would stumble upon. Yet the restaurant drew unanimous praise from all my food blogger friends as somewhere to experience local, authentic Thai food.

[Bangkok] Gaa

Directly across the alley from Gaggan, Asia’s best restaurant according to The World’s 50 Best, is Gaa, the latest addition to the Gaggan empire. 29-year-old chef Garima Arora, a former Gaggan sous-chef and Noma alumni, manages to make Gaa her own with what she calls “eclectic cuisine”, using global techniques to prepare locally sourced ingredients.

[Bangkok] Paste

Located in Gaysorn Village in the busy shopping district of Ratchaprasong, Paste serves modern Thai food based upon traditional recipes from the length and breadth of Thailand.
