Bangkok’s food scene never moves at a slow pace. The city is often — if not always — hungry for the latest and greatest in dining. Even during a pandemic, there are new restaurants, which really shows the strength and blossoming creativity of this ever-growing community of Bangkok.
With a slew of new restaurants popping up every month, Bangkok is still one of the best culinary landscapes food lovers could ever dream of living in. From a chic burger restaurant and a fish-focused haunt to a fresh new pasta joint, here’s a list of new Bangkok restaurants to keep on your radar. You can also get your food delivered from them this May 2021 until we can wine and dine on location.
Bang Bang Burgers
As burger-loving bunaholics, we take this meat-on-bun dish very seriously. And you know who else takes it seriously? Bang Bang Burgers. The new Sukhumvit burger haunt doles out a range of finger-licking-good burgers. Their secret lies in their motto “In sauce we trust,” so apart from their great lamb-, beef-, and plant-based patties, expect their array of sauces – from Knock-Out Sauce and Larb Sauce to Babakew Sauce – to really zhuzh things up. The venue also does takeaway and delivery daily from 11 am to 9 pm.
Bang Bang Burgers, 30 Sukhumvit Soi 11 Bangkok, +6692 596 4973; Open: Tue-Sun, 11 am-11 pm.
La Dotta Pasta Bar & Store
Following the success of their first branch in Thonglor (awarded L’Assiette Michelin Plate for the past three years), La Dotta now welcomes another branch with La Dotta Pasta Bar & Store over in Silom. Led by the Italian-born pasta genius Head Chef Chef Francesco Deiana, expect no store-bought pasta here since everything is made in-house. As much as we love La Dotta’s iconic blue-washed setting that is reminiscent of slurping pasta in Italian coastal towns, as of now we can enjoy La Dotta’s signature dishes in the comfort of our homes through their delivery services from both branches, too.
La Dotta Pasta Bar & Store, 10/15 Convent Rd, Silom, Bang Rak, Bangkok, +662 236 5558; Open: Mon-Sun, 11 am-9 pm.
Plant-based buffs, you are in for a real treat. Bunslinger, a new vegan burger delivery service, is packed up with meat-free, veggie-centred deliciousness that will blow your plant-based mind. We recommend going for the Chick’n Fiction with layers of toasted bun, vegan chicken patty smeared generously with their special Korean sauce, refreshing coleslaw, and pickled radish for crunch and brightness. They now deliver from Thursday to Sunday, 12 pm- 8 pm.
To order, message Bunslinger via Instagram or Line: bunslingerbkk.
Wana Yook represents khao gaeng culture in a new light with a tasting menu led by Chef Chalee Kader of 100 Mahaseth. Set in a warm, pastel yellow house within 515 Victory, the restaurant serves up his interpretation of Thai street food. Instead of facing the battle of deciding what to get like one does with khao gaeng vendors, Chef Chalee blends all the flavours you miss and love about all the khao gaeng items for you to taste in one sitting. Call to book your spot after the restaurant closures are lifted.
Wana Yook, 5 Phayathai Road, Thung Phaya Thai, Ratchathewi, Bangkok, +6696 793 3163; Open: Tue-Sun, 10 am-6 pm.
Miss Fish BKK
Calling out all fish fanatics: check out this new fish-focused venue in town. Miss Fish BKK doles out a selection of heart-warming fish burgers as well as health-forward fish bowls like the Salmon Green Goddess, the Tuna Seoul Bowl, and more. The must-tries here include their Cod Fish and Chips, Japanese Bowl with Grilled Salmon, and Miss Fish Royale, which is a burger with breaded fried premium cod fish.
Miss Fish BKK, 67 Soi Suksavithaya, Khwaeng Silom, Bang Rak, Bangkok, +6681 831 6277; Open: Mon-Sun, 11 am-9 pm.
