As much as we love going to our long-time favourites and neighbourhood establishments, Bangkok’s foodies are a fast-moving bunch, always intrigued by what’s new. Luckily for us, the city’s food scene provides plenty of hot new dining spots to keep us busy — and our stomachs satisfied. From high-profile omakase restaurants to the latest burger joint, here’s a list of the best new Bangkok restaurants to try this month.
Outlaw Creative Cuisine
A shophouse that’s been transformed into a cosy restaurant, Outlaw Creative Cuisine offers a fusion of European fare. Red bricks, framed travel photos, and cool graffiti art lend this intimate dining space an easygoing yet edgy vibe.

On the menu, you may find lightly touched kinmedai, four-day marinated kohada, and kombu seaweed-cured kasugo. With just 16 seats, reservations are extremely limited, so be sure to book well in advance.
