As the name reveals, the hotel is located on Sukhumvit Soi 24, which is within the pulsating hub of Em District and walking distance from the Phrom Phong BTS Skytrain station. And if you are in the ‘hood for some shopping or well-deserved R&R, check-in to this new hotel and head to The Market Restaurant.
The interior is welcoming. Jars filled with spices and ingredients are lined on the peripheral walls. Magazines and light reads are placed side by side with kitchenware decor. The design is in line with the name The Market - where one can find a potpourri of fresh ‘everything.
The pictorial menu depicts an array of international and local favourites. Order a smoothie to go along with your salad. The Fresh Salmon with Avocado and Quinoa (250) is highly recommended and a hearty meal in itself! Or, chow down on their signature ‘The Market’ Beef Burgerwhich comes with a generous side of fries. Before long, it is time for the perfect reunion - with a glass of cold beer. As the saying goes, it is 5pm somewhere else! (That is, if you are not already here for an early evening meal)
The quintessential Tom Yum Goong is available of course. From the Wok section of the menu carries 4 local favourites as well from Phad Thai to Pad Kaprao.
For diners seeking something heavier, From The Grill should be your focal point of the menu. We went with Kurobuta Pork Tenderloin – we loved the presentation, the juicy & succulent pork and the roasted pumpkins…. ahh, we actually did ask for more!
All in, The Market Restaurant is an easy choice for affordable dining, especially when you are in the area. The hotel is also brand new, which is great!
