Savour the best of Argentinian cuisine at El Gaucho, a cosy eatery known for its unrivalled authenticity, from its quintessentially South American flavours to its alluring ambience. Prepared by the passionate hands of trained butchers, it serves only the finest cuts of halal certified meat imported from all over the globe, best enjoyed with a complementary glass of the well-loved Chateau Montrose Grand Cru Classe.
Crepes & Co.
This is culinary bliss for all crepe connoisseurs. Drawing inspiration from the Mediterranean region, Crepes & Co. boasts more than 350 inspired variations of the classic dish. The acclaimed eatery offers both sweet and savoury fusion options, satisfying diverse tastes against the homely backdrop of brick walls, soft sofas, and a sizable display of art. Kid meals and vegetarian dishes are available here too.
At Tadaima, every dish goes for the unbeatable price of 88 baht. Coupled with a non-existent service charge, this izakaya establishment certainly is a crowd favourite. Hearty feasts are best experienced with the pleasure of great company, and this restaurant caters to just that. Expect classic Japanese fare such as sashimi, seaweed salad and donburi, mingled with Tadaima’s signature treats including the kaisen seafood salad and the spicy tuna roll.
A first glance at House 10 draws your eyes to its intriguing façade, dominated by the gothic-inspired iron railings and the distressed wooden door. Despite its vintage décor and rustic atmosphere that hark back to bygone days, House 10 is in fact one of Thonglor’s newest additions. The owner of the restaurant and bar wanted the place to feel like home, thus the chaotic doodles on the wall and the menu of home-cooked dishes, which blend traditional Thai flavours with a touch of fusion. Swing by from Thursday to Saturday for live music performances.
Step into Calin and be instantly transported to a dainty and laidback café in the streets of Paris. Wafting through the eatery, enticing passers-by local and foreign alike, its aroma of freshly baked patisserie, brioches and baguettes fills its diners with heady anticipation. When the dishes arrive, they don’t disappoint either. We recommend the red wine bread that goes exquisitely with Calin’s homemade strawberry balsamic and orange cinnamon jam, topping it off with a soothing cup of Ronnefeldt tea.
