FEATURE OF THE MONTH - FEBRUARY 2018

DINING OUT IN THE YEAR OF THE DOG

DINING OUT IN THE YEAR OF THE DOG

Chinese New Year, and it doesn’t matter whether or not you are Chinese, this is a wonderful time to be in Bangkok.

In Chinatown, the entire length of Yaowaraj becomes a scene of exhilarating celebration with dragon parades, acrobats, fortune  tellers, food stalls, packed restaurants, exploding firecrackers, and everywhere colourful banners, streamers and lanterns.

The activity continues along Charoen Krung Road, in the side streets and in the markets, and worshippers flood to the temples and the shrines, paying respect to gods and goddesses and ancestors, and taking their turn to shake the fortune sticks to see what the Year of the Dog will bring to them.

Chinese restaurants throughout the entire city will be packed for lunch and dinner, with auspicious menus, set menus, and an abundance of good food and great good cheer.

Shortly before the festivities, we took a look at a few of our favourite Chinese restaurants to see what is on offer, and to give a picture of what a New Year dinner might be like.

We went to the ultra posh The China House, at the Mandarin Oriental, and to the eternally popular Shang Palace at the Shangri-La. We went to the very top of the city, Bai Yun on the 59th floor of the Banyan Tree, and to the Hong Kong-style Hong Bao, in the Sukhumvit back sois.

We advise you to book early for any of these outlets.

A happy year of the Dog!
