epicure’s TOP PICKS



Chef Pitchaya “Pam” Utarntha is the mastermind behind this Thai-Chinese restaurant that took Bangkok by storm. Since opening its doors early this year, it has won awards and the hearts of discerning foodies with more than its 20-course tasting menu. The chef’s carefully restored 120-year-old, five-level family shophouse with its own fermentati­on room and rooftop bar is a flavourful love letter to Bangkok’s Chinatown. restaurant­potong.com


Located on the 76th floor, Ojo is the crown jewel of The Standard, Bangkok Mahanakhon. The pink and gold colour scheme of its interior is a feast for the eyes while its elevated Mexican fare is a fiesta on the palate. Helmed by chef Francisco “Paco” Ruano – whose Restaurant­e Alcade in Guadalajar­a is ranked no.32 in 2021 Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurant­s – guests can find creative twists on regional Mexican cuisine which has been given a surprising Thai flair. After all, both cultures love chilli, especially on dishes like Birria (slowcooked beef short ribs) and Pollo & Pipian (chicken with green mole). standardho­tels.com/bangkok/features/ojo-bkk
