Meat on meat on meat on a bun: doesn’t that just make you salivate already? Hosted by Little Market and Jua, Burger Brunch takes place every Sunday from 2-10 pm, and it is popping. The cheeseburger here is a layer of perfection on a bun. Three patties stacked atop the buttery bread are all blanketed with melted cheese, so expect to gorge on juicy meatiness from the first bite.
Expect nothing average when dining out at the sleek Australian-style restaurant, Odtomato. This Burrata Bread (THB 455) is an excellent example of our statement. The dish comes with a burrata crafted from buffalo milk, ciabatta, pungent slash chunky tomato sauce, olive oil, and dark, velvety balsamic vinegar. For guaranteed deliciousness, make sure you spread a generous dollop of burrata on the bread before dipping and dunking it into the sauces. Delish.
Who doesn’t love a good old pairing of biscuit and gravy? And especially when it is served with other toothsome elements like Kentucky-style fried sweetbread and buffalo sauce. This dish by Bunker, which is the latest addition to their meat-packed menu, totally makes our tummies and eyes go wild for it.
This Lobster Thermidor (THB 1,900) over at Thyme: Eatery & Bar, a restaurant focusing on modern European cuisine, is pretty much a depiction of the sea on a plate. The reddish Canadian lobster gets stir-fried in a pool of truffle cream before getting cloaked in a crispy cheese crust. Served with a bundle of truffle oil-enriched angel hair pasta on an oceany blue plate, the dish and its tastes – go figure– are undoubtedly reminiscent of a blue-sky day at the beach.
European flavours meet Asian flair here at Mia. And what we love about this restaurant here is the pecorino cream-stuffed Churros (THB 250 for two pieces) studded with a rain of fragrant truffle. The crispy-edged interior together with the savoury, ooey-gooey inside makes an elegant starter that doesn’t fail to please the eyes as well as the palates.
Nothing beats a rice dish when it comes to comfort food. And this Beef Steak Rice Bowl (THB 190) at Chunn in particular, has won our prize this month for the most comforting dish. With ribbons of medium-rare beef steak, pickled egg, and fried shallots bejewelled on top of the rice, the dish packs a smack of satisfying flavours that will make you swoon over it until the very last bite.
