Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants: EAT Me Restaurant in Bangkok! Woo Hoo. All right, for those of you who don’t know- I’ve been slow in writing my Eat with Jess blog posts because I’m currently in BANGKOK shooting a MOVIE!!!! Yup, you read that correctly. Yup, I’m excited. Yup, nerves are kicking up all over the place! Yup, I’m returning back to my acting roots. Yup, this is also a Eat with Jess travel post. 🙂
Eat Me Restaurant in Bangkok has steadily been making a name for themselves for the past 18 years. It’s an impressive feat because there are sooo many restaurants popping up every single week in Bangkok and for them to stay opened and stay on top is an outstanding feat in itself. The space doubles as an art gallery, with a few floors- bar area, dining space, balcony area, private dining space floor and of course the art gallery sections.
The space is cozy yet spacious. Diners are welcomed by a very friendly waiter on the ground floor near the bar area. Pick your poison, everyone.
We made a late dinner reservation as I had filming beforehand and immediately started with a few cocktails!
Fresh bread were served while we waited for all the food! The menu looked gooooood- actually everything on the menu looked delicious.
Modern, clean, simple and sleek.
We started with an assortment of petite Kumamoto oysters (870 baht for 6 pieces) paired with champagne granita and red wine mignonette that were to die for. It’s been a while since I had oysters and I really enjoyed these sweet, fresh and delectable oysters.
Dutch Harbor King Crab, chilled spring onion soup, zaatar salad, 750 baht was my least favorite of the bunch and it was still damn good! The king crab was incredibly juicy, meaty and plump.
The spicy wagyu tartare “laab” with fried quail egg, 750 baht was exceptional. The wagyu tartare was succulent, tender and packed a punch (talk about the heat of the spices.) I absolutely loved the spicy kick from the diced up peppers. We devoured every single last bit and drank a big glassful (or more) of much needed water.
At this point we were pretty stuffed but still wanted to try the spicy rabbit ragu pappardelle with black olive and nduja pork, 550 baht. The pappardelle was prepared al dente and soaked up all the spicy rabbit ragu. It was a seriously epic meal!
Heirloom tomato roasted with white parmesan, 150 baht was sweet and juicy! (We needed to have
a little bit of veggies one tomato!)
My favorite dish of the night was definitely the mixed clams with nam sausage in coriander lime broth for 475 baht. The clams were extremely plump, juicy and meaty. I loved every single thing about it. We then used the clam shells to slurp up the fragrant coriander lime broth which by the way was CRAZY good. Not one drop was wasted.
Last but not least was the chocolate vodka shots! It was a great ending to our night. One of of my favorite meals in Bangkok so far! <3 More Travel with Jess posts in Bangkok coming your way.
