On their Instagram page @jamiesitalianbkk, it says Jamie Oliver’s Italian restaurant serves fantastic, rustic dishes, using recipes that have been tried, tested and loved. We came in hungry on a weekday afternoon and it felt like an early Christmas.
The Duck Liver Pâté was a great starter and the accompanying balsamic onions were the perfect dose of sweetness. At Jamie’s, they use freerange ducks. The next dish we tried was the Porcini Mushroom Soup - and it was divine! The aged Parmesan and truffle lifted it up to another level and the homemade focaccia took in all that goodness in a bowl. Each spoonful was
a burst of joy.
The three other options for starters are Salmon Bruschetta, Beef Carpaccio and Retro Prawn Cocktail. For Mains, we have a hearty selection of Osso Bucco Alla Milanese, Salmon Fillet, Festive Roast Chicken, Mushroom & Truffle Ravioli and the main star on this menu - the Fillet Steak (250 baht supplement). The steak was served on a huge plate and one can’t help but focus on the roasted bone marrow that towered over the beef counterpart - it was the perfect presentation. We gently scooped out the marrow and had a feast, before extending the happiness with the tender Prime Angus Beef; bathed in red wine sauce, wild mushrooms and black truffle.
All mains are served with a generous side of rosemary roasted potatoes, parsnips, carrots and local greens. These sides were a light meal in themselves, and oh so fresh! Smoothies and juices are available from the à la-carte menu.
To end the feast on a sweet note, we recommend the homemade pudding with brandy cream (Christmas Pudding) and the Festive Sundae - which combines layers of ice cream with berry compote, caramelised orange & chocolate sauce. Complimentary tea and coffee available.

JUST like that, December is upon us. The month for reflection and celebration. At Jamie’s Italian, the celebration begins with A Festive Feast Menu.
A good selection of light bites goes perfectly well for an evening in the sky. Recommended dishes include the Spiced Prawn Burgers, Seared Marinated Salmon in Miso Sauce and the Atlantic Smoked Salmon on Blinis.
If minimalist is your style, and vodka is your drink du jour, then RedSquare is a great place to hang out and socialise. It’s impressive.

IT was our first visit to Tables Grill, the flagship restaurant of the Grand Hyatt Erawan Hotel, where we found both excellent cuisine and great service in well appointed surroundings.
Our special thanks to GM Gordon Fuller, to Sylvain Même, the attentive Manager at Tables Grill, to Chef Hans Zahner and the rest of their highly professional team.
Food spokesman Mark Guthrie took careful note of the surprise amuse bouche - a tasty tomato confit foam over a rich olive oil together with a marinated mackerel morsel on turnip. This was served with an excellent aperitif, Alma Franciacorta Bellavista Brut NV (Brescia, Italy). As usual, the wines were all provided by the Club, and we note with appreciation that Tables Grill never applies a corkage charge to wines brought from outside.

Bangkok's ultimate Mexican restaurant offers great food and the warmth of a traditional Mexican home
THERE'S something very special about the Buffet Sunday Brunch Mexicano Restaurante at the Rembrandt Hotel - and it's all down to Executive Chef Carlos Bravo from Mexico whose cuisine is based on recipes passed on to him by his grandmother.
Thanks to these family specialties, coupled with other authentic Mexican dishes, the restaurant is deliciously different from other Mexican outlets in the city and fully lives up to its slogan “Comida de la abuela” - Grandma's cooking.
Open from 12.00 to 15.00, Mexicano's Buffet Sunday Brunch is Bangkok ultimate Mexican dining treat.
In addition to the wonderful food, the restaurant has a uniquely warm and cosy ambiance, colourful interior design, smiling waiters and waitresses and live Mexican music. It's as if you are a special guest in a Mexican home.
