Jardin Du Boeuf
A fun, original spot for the conscientious beef geek.
The buzz: This new steak place is the latest creation by Chef Deepanker Khosla of Haoma. Introducing a new way to enjoy your food by bringing you closer to nature and ethically sourced food and ingredients, while being aware of food waste.
The vibe: It has been a while since we’ve had anything cool in Rama 9 and this restaurant is a gamechanger. Offering spacious, comfortable seating at Somerset Hotel, don’t be put off by the big play gold tones (lighting, utensils), or the French name you can’t pronounce, the place is very friendly and invites you to have fun, drink, and get loud with your friends. At one corner there’s a big painting of former R&B singer-turned-entrepreneur Rihanna—who some at the table saw as Beyonce, making for a great dinner debate.
The food: Leading the kitchen team is Chef Don Sujith, previously Restaurant Age at Anantara Layan Phuket. The beef here is from a “happy cattle”, family-run farm sourced mostly from locals, and the kitchen team dry-ages the meat themselves. The seafood is ethically line-caught and the greens are from small organic farms. Start your dinner with Steak Fries (B350) that will make you forget about any other steak and fries you’ve ever had, serving potato Mille-Feuille cooked in duck fat on beef and topped with English mustard. Another must-try starter is the Burnt Leeks (B490), just as described: leeks cooked inside an open wood fire until the outside is slightly burned, then dressed with hazelnuts, caper butter, and beef fat. Now onto the mains. Of course you have to try the Thai beef steak, and you have three options: grass-fed, wagyu, and angus, with three different cuts. Prices start at B990 for 250g of grass-fed striploin. If you want something other than beef, try their Charred Tiger Prawns (B850) served with sambal.
Why we’d come back: Thai beef is just so underrated. We would gladly travel to Rama 9, even on a rainy day, just to eat more of their grass-fed dry-aged steak.
