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.

With a slew of new restaurants popping up every month, Bangkok is becoming one of the best culinary landscapes food lovers could ever dream of living in. From a yakitori eatery and burger-focused restaurant to an Italian haunt, here’s a list of new Bangkok restaurants to wine and dine at this October 2020.

Nan Tei Yakitori Bkk

For simple fare with a big flavour payoff, yakitori can give you just that. This month, the new Nan Tei Yakitori should be your stop if all things grilled with a side of Japanese spirits are your passion. The venue offers up a range of meat skewers grilled on live charcoal fire, from the chicken wings to oyster, salmon, squid, and veggies. Dip into the art of Japanese whisky by getting high ball or two, or, for the sake savvy, a sake tasting set is also available.

Nan Tei Yakitori Bkk, 50 Montien Mall, Ground Floor, Unit G3, Si Phraya, Bangkok, +6692 214 8585; Open: Mon-Sat, 11:30 am-2:30 pm for lunch and 6-11 pm for dinner.

Little Market

For burger buffs, the mentioning of meat on meat on a bun usually makes you drool already. Helmed by Chef Chet Adkins of JUA and co-owner Jason Lang, Little Market has recently moved from their hip Charoenkrung location into an even hip-er home nestled in the Yen Akat neighbourhood. The quality classics like the Steakburger (THB 199) and the Philly Bird (THB 199) still remain, with now a larger selection of sandwiches, sides, and sweets to satisfy American comfort food devotees.

Little Market, 5/4 Yenakart Road, Chongnonsi, Yannawa, Bangkok, +6692 414 6890; Tue-Sun, 11:30 am-9:30 pm.

Côte by Mauro Colagreco

No need to go to France. World-famous Michelin-starred chef Mauro Colagreco of Restaurant Mirazur, France brings over the treat of his genius to vivify Bangkok’s dining scene. Situated within the stellar Capella Bangkok, Côte by Mauro Colagreco is the chef’s reimagined version of contemporary food that bridges together the French and Italian Riviera cuisine. In search for new and refined flavours this month? Then this should be your move.

Côte by Mauro Colagreco, Capella Bangkok, 300/2 Charoen Krung Road, Yannawa, Sathon, Bangkok, +662 098 3888.

Aksorn

Central: The Original Store, just as its name suggests, is where the country-famed shopping mall brand, Central Group, originated way back in the 1950s. Now renovated and re-opened as a multipurpose space, shoppers will be delighted with their offerings of goodies. There’s shops and a cafe, and Aksorn, an all-new Thai restaurant helmed by the renowned Australian-native chef David Thompson who’s one of the pioneers in Thai fine dining. Highlighting age-old Thai recipes found in cookbooks published during the 1940s to 1970s, the venue churns out a new-found take on these classic dishes.

Aksorn, top floor, Central: The Original Store, 1266 Charoenkrung, Bangkok, +6621 168 662.

A Fox Princess Kitchen

Adding to Tha Tien’s repertoire of cool, retro eateries, A Fox Princess Kitchen is Bangkok’s new upcoming Italian restaurant you need to visit. The establishment might not sound so new and foreign to city foodies’ ears considering it branches out from its sister restaurants: It’s Happened To Be A Closet and the four outlets of A Fox Princess chain (A Fox Princess + A Spider, A Fox Princess + Friends, A Fox Princess + A Coffee Shoppe). Here, relish in their array of Italian fare along with a vibe that makes you feel as though you’re falling down the rabbit hole, adorned with random yet splendid vintage decor.

A Fox Princess Kitchen, 83 Soi Tha-Tien, Maharat Road Bangkok, +6662 660 5558; Open: Wed-Mon, 10 am-10 pm.
