A taste of Bangkok

quar­tet of Bangkok eater­ies will more than make up for it.


OLD Part of the fun is in find­ing this place. Hid­den within Bangkok’s typ­i­cally dis­or­ga­nized cityscape is a cen­tury-old build­ing that houses the restau­rant. Be­ing here feels like you’re vis­it­ing a prom­i­nent fam­ily in turn-of-the-cen­tury Siam. The menu fea­tures clas­sic Thai dishes plus mod­ern ones, as well as “fu­ture” recipes cre­ated by owner Nooror So­many Steppe. The Blue Ele­phant brand has grown in pop­u­lar­ity, and now in­cludes lo­ca­tions in Europe and the Mid­dle East.

Rec­om­mended dishes in­clude Mus­lim­style mas­saman lamb curry (THB380/13), crispy grouper with a sauce (THB520/$16) fla­vored with Prachuab Khirikhun pineap­ple, gar­lic and chili sauce, and black chicken green curry (THB550/$17), served with crispy roti bread. For some­thing truly deca­dent, try foie gras tamarind sauce (THB720/$22). Open daily 11:30 AM – 2:30 PM, 6:30 PM – 10:30 PM; Blue Ele­phant Build­ing 233 South Sathorn Road, Kwaeng Yan­nawa, Khet Sathorn; tel +66 2 673 9353; blueele­phant.com/bangkok
