When I was recently in Bangkok I was looking for a new restaurant to try that was walking distance from my hotel and Zanotti Il Restaurante Bangkok was the place I chose. It was also recommended by the staff in the hotel, they eat there, so how could I not give the place a try.
Chef Gianmaria Zanotti established the restaurant in 1998 and I now know why everyone who I spoke to before and after rave about the place. Great food, awesome friendly service and decent wine list. My sort of place.
When Bangkok what should one eat? Thai food of course, so I decided to try one of the top restaurants in town, Nahm Bangkok. Nahm is another Bangkok restaurant that is on the The Worlds 50 Best Restaurants list at number 28 globally and the number 10 restaurant in Asia. Nahm also received a Michelin Star in the inaugural Bangkok guide in 2017.
A part from be well credentialed Nahm Bangkok’s Chef, David Thompson, is an Aussie, so the food must be good. Read more
On a recent trip to Bangkok I dined at Hamilton’s Steak House in the Dusit Thani Bangkok. Hamilton’s has copied the decor and feel of an American style Steak House. This is more a business lunch / dinner spot than a place to go to with a group of friends.
As usual in Thailand the team of Hamilton’s Steakhouse is friendly and attentive, though not overly so. I always smile when I hear the wait-staff apologise for delivering the food or a drink. Read more
I have been fairly slack with posting lately, seem to be posting on Instagram a lot. This due to my work sending me to some interesting places around Asia, not so many wine dinners. So I thought it would be a good idea to post a round up of the photos from the previous month.
Singapore Morning Stroll
A few times a week @winebear007 and I go for an early morning stroll and we are sometimes lucky enough to catch a great Sunrise or some of the cuter locals.
