FEATURE OF THE MONTH - DECEMBER 2017

WHAT'S NEW, WHAT'S HOT & WHAT'S CHIC

WHAT'S NEW, WHAT'S HOT & WHAT'S CHIC

Bangkok these days is a town where everything is happening. New restaurants, new bars, new chefs, new ideas, all the time.

It can be very difficult to keep track of everything - but, hey, no one wants to miss out!

We have therefore been to visit five of the newest venues, and present them in this special feature.

Our visits took us to the latest Japanese omakase restaurant to open. Omakase is one of Bangkok's newest trends, and this one we feel is especially outstanding.

We took in a New Zealand fish 'n' chips restaurant (or fush 'n' chups, as the Kiwi owners insist), which had actually run for several years in another location before being forced to find a new home - very successfully too, we feel. 

A new Mediterranean restaurant specialising on pides, or Turkish-style pizzas, was also on our itinerary, as was a Spanish restaurant using a Spanish charcoal grill to create healthy barbecue specialities from the Basque country.

Lastly, in need of a cocktail or two, we stopped in at a new bar in Bang Rak Creative District to examine a rum-tastic drinks list.

We shall keep watching the scene. Keep watching us.
