More than just an extension of the original venue, which is built around the concept of ‘dining at the house of a close friend,’ the new operation takes its cue from trendy warehouse conversions as found in New York’s Manhattan Island – think high ceiling, wooden beams, polished concrete, and minimal décor (in this case, old copies of the Bangkok Post, pulped and pasted papier mâché-style to the restaurant’s walls; and rusty corrugated metal sheets arranged as an eye-catching backdrop to the bar). It also offers a range of dishes not available at the parent venue, including an a la carte breakfast menu brimming with tasty, great-value eats such as Kanom Pung Kai Luak (Runny eggs with toasted home-made bread. B75) and Congee with Onsen Egg (B75), alongside creative options like Spicy Capellini with shredded pork (spicy spaghetti for breakfast? Yes! And it’s delicious. B95).
Innovation isn’t just reserved for breakfast though; arrive at any time during the restaurant’s operations (daily from 6am-midnight, hence the restaurant’s name) and you can select from an a la carte menu loaded with novel takes on familiar Thai and international dishes.
Northern & Esan Style Sausages (B125), for instance, pack all the flavour of traditional Thai sausages while reducing the fat, and Moji lab ped (B85) takes Spicy minced duck meat with sticky rice and gives it a visual and tasty new kick – encasing the meat within a sticky rice patty that’s shallow-fried to crispy effect. Satay steak (B410), meanwhile, sees the typical meat-on-a-stick street-side favourite go ‘stickless,’ with the grilled pork presented, instead, like a steak, albeit one that’s cut into strips and drizzled with a thick satay sauce.
Other highlights include Seafood on the rocks (B260), a salad brimming with squid, prawns, mussels and more deep-sea bites; Braised pork a la mode (B180), which is soft and subtle; and Jumbo Crab Sandwich (B250), whose toasted home-made bread is sliced down the middle and packed to bursting with meat.
Offering something for everyone, the restaurant is family friendly during the day before morphing into an after-work hangout at night.
Fuelling the fun into the later hours is a cocktail menu featuring innovative mixes such as the white-rum-based Ice Scream (B280), which comes with an ice pop melting into it; and the party-starting Six To Twelve Bomb (B320) – an explosive mix of gin, rum, vodka, tequila, midori, Blue Curaçao, strawberry liqueur, and lime. “Boom! Shake the room,” anyone?
41 G floor, 39 Boulevard Tower A, Soi Promjit, Sukhumvit Soi 39. Open daily 6am-Midnight.
