My Dining Wishlist: Bangkok

Stopping by Bangkok for a couple days for my upcoming trip means that I have a tight schedule and fingers crossed, I will be ticking everything off in this dining wish list.

Nahm | Voted #13 in the prestigious San Pellegrino & Acqua Panna 50 Best Restaurants 2014 (aka the Oscars of the dining world) and #1 in Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants 2014, Nahm is my top priority. Located inside the Metropolitan Hotel with the restaurant occupying the first floor of the hotel, guests can enjoy a modern Thai meal that is sophisticated and elegant. Both a la carte and set menus are available.

Gaggan | Serving Indian cuisine with an ultra-modern twist, Gaggan is also ranked in the World’s Best Restaurant list as #17, #3 in the Asia list as well as being awarded the Highest New Entry in 2014. With use of molecular gastronomy, Gaggan’s imaginative dishes are known to not only taste spectacular, they are also visually stunning.

Moon Bar | Visiting rooftop bars in Bangkok is a must, and I have been recommended to try out Moon Bar, located on the 60th floor of the amazing Banyan Tree Hotel. Getting 360 degree view of the skyline in Bangkok, I can see myself sipping on a few cocktails while I take in the view. Maybe I can even slip in a quick massage at the Banyan Tree Spa. Heaven!

Pad Thai (Phat Thai) | Thailand’s most popularΒ culinary export, it will be interesting to see how the authentic version of Pad Thai served in Thailand differs from the ones in Auckland. Fried rice noodles with bits of tofu, dried shrimp and egg, seasoned with fish sauce, tamarind and sugar and finally topped with ground peanut, I’m drooling already.

Thai Iced Coffee | I’m an avid coffee drinker, so I will love to try their take on coffee. Plus, it will be a great way to cool down in the summer heat!

Do you have any suggestions?

  1. Wow, how many countries will you be visiting? My friend went there last year, and told me that some males there are so good at cross-dressing, they look even prettier than females!

  2. I’m stopping at a few! I’ve heard the same thing, going to try to sneak some photos.

    On a side note, did you get vacinated when you went to Vietnam?

  3. Can’t wait to see them! My mother and aunty didn’t, but my sister and I did. We found it to be unecessary though, but it’s a good idea to probably stock up on those diarrhoea tablets and panadol ^^”

  4. Good! Because we forgot and it is so pricey. Just going to get Hep A and B vaccinations. Stock up huh?! Should I be prepared for an upset tummy?

  5. It is ay! Guess doctors need that money to pay off their massive student loan debt hahah. I think grade E hygiene is the norm there xD nothing major though! Safe travels Amy!

  6. Do you like thai BBQ? It is sort of like a cross between steam boat and Korean BBQ.

    Last time we were in Bangkok, my best friend took us to this Thai BBQ buffet that she had been introduced to by a Bangkok friend. Our tuk tuk driver didn’t want to take us there and tried to convince us otherwise. I guess it wasn’t on his list of pre-approved tourist destinations.

    It was was the biggest food hall I have ever seen and packed with Thai locals. Hardly any foreigners there at all. I think it was around 100 to 150 baht all you can eat thai BBQ including plenty of fresh seafood. Soft drinks were included in the price or you could buy beer very cheap. We left feeling soooo full. I will have a rummage through my notes and see if I can find the name of the place for you.

  7. Thank you so much! I’ve not tried Thai BBQ but am keen to try anything new!
