Eat Me Is In The Media Again
We’re all delighted here at the restaurant to see that Eat Me has been in the media again in two stories focused on our fantastic neighbourhood, Bangkok’s vibrant Silom and Sathorn areas.
As the articles say, when we moved in all those years ago there wasn’t much more than street food here, so we’re excited to see that our buzzing little neck of the woods has fast become one of the hottest eating and drinking areas in Bangkok.
We thought we’d share some of the nice things that have been said about us…
From the January-February 2015 issue of the gorgeous DestinAsian magazine:
“Holding the 37th spot on Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants list, this Silom hot spot isn’t new. In fact, it’s 16 years old—ancient in Bangkok years—but has remained au courant thanks to a team with their fingers on the pulse. Australian Darren Hausler and food stylist sister Cherie opened this local institution when there was little in the area except food stalls. The good-looking retro space would be a grand old dame if it weren’t for frequent nips and tucks by American designer Kelly Wheatley of Lump, whose handcrafted furniture is made from recycled wood and vintage fabric. Chef Tim Butler (formerly of New York’s Daniel) continually tweaks his seasonal menu of fine produce-driven cuisine that Hausler broadly labels “modern, international, regional.” Try the Australian saltbush lamb rack with broad bean, mint, and charred lemon. Star “mixultant” Joseph Boroski is responsible for the classic cocktails.”
And from the delectable Australian Gourmet Traveller magazine, which included us in their Bangkok Travel Guide in the December 2014 issue:
“Australian siblings Darren and Cherie Hausler opened this welcoming restaurant 16 years ago. A glam bar was added recently with cocktails by mixologist Joseph Boroski, but it’s chef Tim Butler’s “modern, international, regional” cuisine and dishes such as pearl-shell ceviche with yuzu granita, honeydew and shiso that vaulted it to 37 on Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants list.”
“Silom-Sathorn’s engaging galleries include H Gallery, which shows international and Thai art in a beautiful heritage building (201 Sathorn Soi 12); Kathmandu for local photography (87 Soi Pan); Artery, focusing on emerging Thai art (2/2 Silom Soi 19); and Thavibu, focused on Thai, Burmese and Vietnamese art (919/1 Silom Rd). These and more feature on the Bangkok Art Map, available at the galleries.”
They do indeed.
Here’s a link to the excellent Bangkok Art Map, which you should find at most good galleries in Bangkok. It’s indispensable for doing a gallery hop around South Silom.
If you’re feeling peckish after your art amble or you just need a pick-me-up, don’t forget that Eat Me opens at 3pm, and you can try a refreshing glass of something cooling fashioned by the gifted Joseph. His fabulous speakeasy and bar school also featured in the January Gourmet Traveller.
