From my travels
Everyone knows that Bangkok is a food-lover's paradise and not just for the variety of Thai cuisine. Still, I was a bit skeptical when it came to visiting a restaurant that blends Korean, Japanese, French, American, Mexican and Peruvian flavors on its menu. But Akira Back at the Marriott Marquis Queen's Park (bangkokmarriottmarquisqueenspark.com), the newest outpost from the KoreanAmerican chef whose Seoul degustation restaurant just earned him his first Michelin star, masters this global mixing. For an inkling of what to expect here, think tuna pizza—it's not what you'd probably predict—Wagyu bulgogi tacos and Jeju domi,a Korean sashimi dish infused with orange.
