A veteran of the Bangkok dining scene, Eat Me still feels fresh and exciting, thanks to its progressive approach. Doubling as an art gallery, the restaurant has a cool, laid-back vibe, attracting a broad international and local crowd.
Head chef Tim Butler, who hails from New York, exhibits genuine creativity in the kitchen, fusing influences from around the world. Dishes are characterised by daring flavour combinations, which showcase a kaleidoscope of international ingredients in starters such as Alaskan scallops with avocado, yuzu and pancetta, while a chicken salad is elevated to new heights by the addition of red papaya, toasted coconut and betel leaf. Butler also knows when to keep things simple, with classic dishes such as black truffle and Parmesan risotto and papardelle with rabbit ragù demonstrating a well-rounded understanding of flavour.
The ground floor bar and outdoor courtyard is the place to catch up with friends while sampling an amazing cocktail, a craft beer or one of the many excellent wines from the list. For dinner move up to the restaurant which is set over two floors with a sleek, muted colour scheme and a fan cooled veranda shrouded in vegetation. Friendly staff and and a relaxed atmosphere are further reasons to visit – and help explain why Eat Me is much-loved as a late-night dining destination.
