Exploring Thai food on its own terms is one of the tremendous joys of living in Bangkok. This bold, vibrant cuisine is moreover striking in its adaptability. It’s possible, for example, to develop a degree of
familiarity with Thai flavours exclusively through the prism of street food, of portions dished out for B100 or less. Where it gets absorbing for foodies, though, is when these flavours can be traced up the pecking order & identified in top-drawer restaurants, where a different level of produce & technique are brought to bear.

It’s for these reasons that the recently opened Siam Wisdom will appeal to anyone interested in developing a greater appreciation of Thai food because flavours are expertly refined, separated more elegantly & delivered with brio. Here Chef Chumpol Jangprai gives a crash course in deliciousness without compromising on authenticity.

The menu is split into thirds – Ancient, Classical & Innovative. Each category has a set menu that goes for B1800 at dinner time. The challenge, then, is choosing which category to explore because each has its own distinctive highlights.

Siam-Wisdom-7 Siam-Wisdom-8
On the Ancient set menu, which taps into the rarified traditions of palace cuisine, start with crispy pancakes with crab meat & kaffir lime leaves before savoring the grilled marinated sea bass with herbs in banana leaves. And the curry, served with a choice of beef or pork, gives off the unforgettable perfume of cassia flowers.

The Classical menu, which is essentially Chompul’s superior take on contemporary Thai food, throws up a fresh pomelo salad with prawns, crispy shallots & sweet tamarind sauce. It is one of the real stand-out dishes. That said, there’s moreover an exceptional beef massaman featuring the usual combination of coconut milk, onion & baby potatoes. However, what sets Chompul’s version apart is that it retains an unusually high-heat spice. It’s gorgeous.

On the Innovative menu, where convention gets well & truly tweaked, the som tum takes young muskmelon salad & pairs it with organic caviar from the Royal Project. Following that, try the crab meat with ant eggs & boiled duck eggs with a mangosteen sauce before finishing off with the spicy, sour river prawns & crispy fish soup seasoned with drumstick seeds.

Ultimately, as the name suggests, Siam Wisdom delivers the best kind of culinary education.

heaven14Since the opening last year Heaven Bangkok have made a huge buzz in Bangkok Party scene. The opening was one of the biggest of the year. Heaven Bangkok is a huge dining & entertainment complex on top the Zen shopping complex. Four floors of 2 restaurant & 2 bars; Zense Gourmet deck serves five types of cuisine from 5 well known restaurants. Shintori is a Japanese restaurant franchise serving elegant Japanese cuisine. Horizon a Tapas bar with DJ both equipped with state for the art sound & lighting system. Heaven on Zen is a champagne bar that offers spectacular views of the city. Actually all the outlets have outdoor seating & provide astonishing views of the city.
While we were doing some shopping at Central World, deciding what to obtain was a huge chore which made us really tired & hungry. We wanted to chill out & obtain the feel of Bangkok. There were tons restaurants & bars in Central World yet none will do justice for the headache of shopping we had. The only option was to go to Heaven.
 heaven
We started with some drinks at Horizon. There were many drinks, creative cocktails & original tapas to select from. One of the cocktails we had was a coffee blended cocktail priced around 200 baht. It was really satisfactory it had nice aroma of coffee & too sweet.
heaven12The tapas we tried were the pad krapao lamb on crunchy wonton. The lamb was tender & spicy with a nice kick from the chilies, the crunchy wonton gave it an absorbing texture. Seating outside, the ambiance was just perfect, there was some breeze. The changing of evening lights made it magical.
heaven11
After the sunset we move down to Zenses Gourmet Deck. There were many seating arrangements here; we went for the indoor table right by the window. Right away the manager khun Chalermkiat suggested us to start off with some wine. Taras, Bin 383, Cabernat Sauvignon (395/glass).
The menus had choices from 5 restaurants each restaurant had approximately 10-30 items. The Thai menu is from White Café, European menu is from To Die For, Indian is from Red, & Italian menu is from Gianni. Also guest can order items from Shintori’s menu the Japanese restaurant one floor above.
heaven10
Since we were having wine, we avoided Thai & Indian, moreover it would be too many flavor profiles to handle for one night. The first dish was a large combo appetizer plate “To Die for Platter” (1350).
heaven06
It combines Duck foi gras with truffle salt & pear tart, crab cakes, blacken Hokkaido Cajun scallops & baked Manila clams. It was a nice dish for sharing with many varieties of flavors, textures & aromas.
heaven08heaven09
heaven05
From Shintori we had the Avocado & tuna paste cocktail (320). It was light yet flavorful, the tuna & avocado comes together with the home made shoyu base sauce.
heaven03
For the mains we had 2 dishes from Gianni, Lemon Sole (690) grilled with white wine, lemon & capers, a attractive dish, nicely presented. It had an intense flavor of fish goes together well with lemon & caper sauce serve with spinach, broccoli, potatoes & tomatoes, a very healthy dish.
heaven02
Agnello New Zealand lamb chops 350 grams (990), was perfectly grilled nice crust outside, inside still pink. It was tender, smoky & savory served with grilled vegetables & mash potatoes.
heaven01
To end the meal before the dessert we had Yellow tail (650). It was a nice size firm & fresh, it was soft at the same time it had a little crunch on the bite. It was very delicate.
heaven13
Khun Chalermkiat suggest some sparkling wine by the glass to go with the dessert McGuigan Black label Chardonnay Brut (395)
heaven2
Yuzu cheese cake (195) served with passion fruit, mango sherbet & tropical fruit cubes. I thought being a cheese cake it would be heavy yet I was wrong. The cheese was creamy & had full flavor of cheese cake, it was well balanced with the sherbet & fruits.
Heaven Bangkok is one of those places that is right for any occasion. It has the ambiance for any mood, whether it’s fine dining, romantic, relaxed, party & the list goes on.

Heaven Bangokok: Open daily 5:30 p.m. till late.
