Our foodie editor, Eunice, shares her shortlist of the best restaurants in Bangkok offering diverse menus, from Mexican classics to healthier desserts.

By Eunice Enriquez

When I arrived in Bangkok, one of my biggest concerns was the food available and being able to find places that resembled what I was used to. But to my surprise, I discovered that the gastronomic offerings in this city are amazing. There are all kinds of food choices and everything to suit my cravings. That’s why I would like to share my favorite restaurant recommendations. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

El Hefe

El Hefe is a new chain of Mexican restaurants in Thailand. Inspired by the Mexican street-food craze, Chef Luiz has an array of delicious food items on the menu. 

The restaurant proudly offers over 40 types of tacos, along with the Mexican classics such as burritos, enchiladas, enmoladas, quesadillas, and more. They also offer a dedicated vegetarian and vegan menu for guests, hence covering the whole food spectrum. 

The main branch is at Sukhumvit 34. Look out for those bright yellow doors!

Vistro’s menu draws inspiration from the owners’ travels, carefully developed to turn the perception of plant-based food on its head by incorporating exciting flavours inspired by global cuisine. 

You’ll find classic comfort food alongside gourmet delights. The diversity of the menu caters to vegans, foodies, and the plant-based curious. The Vistro team was honoured with the title of ‘Thailand’s best plant-based restaurant’ at the Root the Future Awards 2020.

Nine Pastry 

Nine Pastry & Bakery was established in 2019 by Chef Nir, who began experimenting with French patisserie, cakes, and sourdough. Positive feedback inspired him to take things further and he opened Nine Pastry on Sukhumvit 24.  

Menu items like artisan sourdough and bread, delicious cakes and tarts, and small treats with a Mediterranean influence make Nine Pastry a must-visit restaurant in Bangkok.
