If you’re looking for a true barbecue experience, head to Aromkwan, Ekkamai’s Asian smokehouse, for its new chef’s table experience boasting a cascade of smoky, tender chunks of beef.
Don’t let the chef’s table moniker fool you. Unlike haute cuisine restaurants that force you to sit for hours to taste nibbles and morsels, Aromkwan offers something more intimate—think a banana leaf banquet where massive portions of tenderized smoky ribs make an entrance to the table one after the other until you’re too full to finish.
For B3,800, Vishanu “Bank” Prempuk marinates, smokes, and slow-cooks each of his ingredients with fastidious care over flavor wood fires.
Almost everything takes more than nine hours of preparation, from juicy pork ribs and intensely rich ba kut teh and chewy squid tentacles smoked with bamboo leaves to his signature tantalizing lamb shanks and suckling pig with crisp skins smoked with longan wood chips and clad with homemade shoyu that can rival or upstage Chinese restaurants with ease.
