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 popular 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?
