DOWN-to-earth and downright delicious, Bourbon St. Restaurant and Oyster Bar is Bangkok’s only restaurant specializing in ‘Cajun Creole’ cuisine straight from the Bayou Country of New Orleans, USA.
Established in 1986, the restaurant is an old-timer by this fickle city’s standards, but like a fine wine racked in a cellar, Bourbon St. just keeps getting better with age – especially since it moved three years ago from its original location (in the now demolished Washington Square) to Soi Ekamai, where it occupies a wonderfully renovated seven storey building that includes the restaurant and bar on the first two-floors, a great dining and party room on the rooftop, and Bourbon Street’s Boutique Hotel on the floors in between.
Gregarious owners Doug and Ju Harrison are always on hand to greet diners and recommend dishes from their comprehensive menu, and with so many tempting dishes on offer – ranging from Blackened salmon (B410++) and Cajun ‘popcorn’ shrimp (B180++), to New Orleans Gumbo (B150++) and Cajun blackened USDA Prime ribeye steak (340g. B1,490++), all made using family recipes lovingly honed at the Harrison home – there really is something to suit every taste.
You can also select from a wide selection of pizzas and pastas, hunger-busting burgers, Mexican specials, traditional Thai favourites, homemade desserts (don’t miss the Pecan pie) and some of the most reasonably priced oysters in Bangkok.
What’s more, every night of the week Bourbon St. offers some amazing promotions, including a superb All-you-can eat Mexican dinner buffet every Tuesday night, for just B325++ per person. The quality of the spread is top notch, and a good representative of what this restaurant is all about – great food, great fun, great times.
