100 Mahaseth

The place: From a warm, rustic space just off Charoenkrung, chefs Chalee Kader (Surface, Holy Moly) and Randy Noprapa (Fillets) reward diners for taking the plunge into the world of local offcuts. Drawn heavily from Isaan and the north, dishes like the beef entrails in spicy soup and charcoal-roasted bone marrow really make you question all the fuss over premium meat—and have you coming back for more.

Price: 1,500++/ person
Date: Mar 22 - Apr 02


The place: 2019 saw Charoenkrung's hipster hangout go upscale: kitchen bar seats, tasting menu, wine pairing and craft cocktails. Fermentation remains at the heart of chef Napol Jantraget's 13-course menu, whether it’s a sinfully crisped slice of pork belly topped with infused mushroom and served with a fermented chili sauce or a tangy coconut cream with smoked goby fish. Desserts by Japanese pastry chef Saki Hoshino forego sweetness in favor of sublimely challenging new flavors.

Akira Back

The place: When eating at the sky-high Bangkok outpost of American-Korean celeb chef Akira Back, make sure you order to share.

The place: Through a menu that charts in-house rotisserie meats, unctuous stews, Mediterranean seafood and incredible homemade pastas, chef Paolo Vitaletti’s home-style interpretation of Italian cuisine is as close as the city comes to true trattoria dining. Rarer, seasonal items come and go to complement the Roman family recipes, but what seemingly never changes is the restaurant’s mix of class and casual charm, only heightened by an excellent wine list.

Price: 1,500++/ person

Il Fumo

The place: Il Fumo, under the direction of Chef Nelson Amorim, proposes new-wave Portuguese cuisine—long for the past, respect for the tradition, care for great produce, yet not afraid to look outward and be inspired by other cultures. The restaurant was founded in late 2015 by food-obsessed couple Choti and Debby Leenutaphong (Vesper, Via Maris, La Dotta, La Dotta ‘La Grassa’ and 80/20).

L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon sold out!

The place: The passing of Joel Robuchon in 2018 drew an outpouring of grief from all over the restaurant world. At the Bangkok outpost, head chef Olivier Limousin continues to treat us to the maestro’s exceptionally high and consistent standards for French cooking (and, yes, that mashed potato), while simultaneously leaving his own indelible mark. Not many places in town do fine dining quite like here. Luxurious ingredients star in Gallic food that's refined without losing its heart. That might mean steak tartare coated in Perigord black truffle shavings on a bed of baby mache leaves; Sologne Imperial caviar in a lobster jelly; or a Challans duck breast and foie gras duo served with Robuchon’s super-silky, buttery mashed potatoes.

Sourcing ingredients fresh daily from across 14 southern provinces, his approach to cooking focuses on traditional techniques, from charcoal and clay pot cooking, to pressing and squeezing fresh coconut juice.

While the dining room keeps things Nordically simple—walls are a subtle, cool mint, lighting is bright yet inviting—the tasting menu bursts with impactful and labor-intense flavors, like the Alaskan crab with fresh cucumber, sweet coconut and citrusy kalamansi, or the rich dark chocolate dessert with hints of orange, walnut and jalapeno. A new pairing with Danish wines also reveals rich and fruity flavors unlike anything else in town.
