Martin Blunos, the walrus-mustachioed British chef with Latvian roots and Michelin stars to his name, has joined forces with Latvian chef Aleksandrs Nasikailov to open Bangkok’s first restaurant focusing on the food from their traditional homelands in Northern Europe. Called Baltic Blunos, this fine dining restaurant is located in the popular entertainment area of Thonglor (Sukhumvit 55). The partners call their food ‘Baltic Crossover’ as it is a blend of cuisines from Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania using imported products as well as local ingredients and flavours. The handsome décor features natural woods, warm lighting and brown leather to create a classy ambiance. Images of Latvia adorn the walls as do some giant photos o fChef BlunoS himself.
Built almost 100 years ago in the style of an elegant Italian palace, Praya Palazzo is an incredibly romantic venue set on the western banks of the Chao Phraya River. It is accessible only by a free transfer boat. Completely restored in 2009 using original materials and craftsmanship to reinstate the house’s former glory, Praya Palazzo is today a popular luxury 15-room boutique hotel with a wonderfully atmospheric Thai restaurant serving popular dishes from the various eras of Thailand’s past.
