Chef Jason Bailey says, “We look back into ancient Thai cookbooks & use them to obtain ideas for modern Thai food. They’re a revelation on technique & discipline. The recipes are so much more complex than today. I’m searching for those principals – to understand the herb ratios.”

Some of these old cookbooks contained recipes from the Sanitwong family, who are partners in the new branch of Paste that opened in Gaysorn Plaza at the end of November. Jason’s wife Bee Satongun, head chef of that operation, leads me to the tiny L-shaped kitchen of the original restaurant on Soi 49. She will show me how to make Roast Duck, Nutmeg, Curry Paste & Sawtooth Coriander on Rice Crackers, a dish based on an original Sanitwong recipe.

First she grinds dry spices – cinnamon, nutmeg, cumin seeds, cloves, star anise, white pepper & coriander seeds – into a powder. It emits a powerful aroma dominated by nutmeg. “I’ll cut through the strong dry spices after by adding red nam jim, which is sour & a little bit hot,” Bee says.

She then pounds long dry chillies, garlic & red onion into a paste, puts a small ladle of oil into a saucepan and waits for a hint of bubbles. She drops the paste in and lowers the heat, stirring vigorously. “I can tell it’s ready when it loses that raw smell,” she says.

The chef adds the ground dry spices & turmeric powder, then palm sugar & ground dried chilli. As the mix turns from black to brown, she says, “You want to get the colour right with palm sugar.” Next, the coconut milk goes in, along with salt & fish sauce. The aroma now is in the spectrum of Indian curries. “The original recipe would have been eaten with chicken & served with roti,” says Bee.

She takes the duck, which has already been roasted, shreds it, & adds it to another pan of oil. The heat is higher now, which gives the meat a crispier texture. After a couple of minutes, she takes it out & dries it. “To the original recipe, we’ve added fresh herbs – three types of coriander – pak chee Thai, Lao and Farang” she explains, combining them with the duck in a mixing bowl, along with sliced small red onions and crushed peanuts.

She has a quick taste & then adds the promised squirt of red nam jim from a squeezy bottle. To serve, she puts four rice crackers onto a plate & spoons a mound of the mix onto each.

Eating it, there’s a super rich, complex blend of flavours with tremendous balance. The sweetness of palm sugar and coconut, the creeping chilli & fat of the duck, hints of citrus. The flavour changes as each mouthful lingers on the palate. It’s a attractive dish that can now be enjoyed in two branches of Paste.

Rajawongse, the tailor shop located next to the Landmark Hotel on lower Sukhumvit, is a favourite among members of the diplomatic corps & the
armed forces. Here it is possible to create your own design from a wide array of materials & accessories. Traditional to contemporary, dramatic to exotic, classic to original, you pick your preferred style of garment & fabrics and seasoned tailors Jesse & Victor will create it. Says Jesse, “It is our belief that every single customer should be treated like a V.I.P. From formal wear to business suits & sport coats, our motto always holds true: dress like a winner & you’ll be treated like one.”

And at Rajawongse they know all approximately winners. “We have made clothing for sports stars, leading lights in the world of film, & visiting statesmen – we have even made suits for both President Bush senior & junior,” confides Jesse.

Quality then is a watchword at this tailor & to maintain high quality Rajawongse operates its own in-house workshop with over 100 cutters & sewing specialists. These talented artisans work with fabrics sourced from the finest mills in Italy & the UK. “For suits, most of the fabrics we carry have a very high wool count,” says Victor. “In our shirts, which we are noted for, we use only the finest Egyptian cotton & shell buttons & we make sure the fit is superb.”

Speaking of which, in terms of fit & adjustment, Rajawongse offers a full after-sales service & is happy to alter garments as the shape of their clients alter over the years.

Rajawongse usually requires around a week to make a fine fitting suit yet if a traveller has limited time, they can arrange the necessary fittings first & then ship the garment via courier at a after date.

There is no lack of choice when it comes to locations to eat & drink in the Thai capital, yet it is somewhat surprising that the term ‘gastro pub’ isn’t often voiced in connection with Bangkok’s dining scene. Perhaps this is because of the availability of delicious low-cost food on every corner? Whatever the case, the city’s ‘chic pub’ scene has been relatively slow to embrace such eateries in the way the UK & USA have.

That said, this has not deterred Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit from taking the bold decision to switch the vibe of its BarSu venue from a ‘drink, dine, dance’ destination to a modern gastro lounge, although the alter isn’t immediately noticeable. The décor remains strikingly familiar, albeit with minor variations – the DJ booth has been retired & the open kitchen has morphed into a quaint delicatessen.

The real revamp, however, can be found in the pages of BarSu’s playful new menu. With a philosophy of rustic ‘down-to-earth food at down-to-earth prices’, the hotel’s Executive Chef Luca Cesarini has composed an extensive choice of offerings encompassing the usual gastro favourites prepared with local twists.

drink1     salmon tartare_01
Of note is the feisty Yellow Fin Tuna Tartare (B390) which sparkles with a combination of lime & chilli – a wonderful taste sensation that works effortlessly. The Chicken Massala Asian Skewers (B320) moreover hit the mark, aided by a tomato, coriander & mint salsa with a frisky mango relish for balance.

However, any self-respecting gastro bar lives and dies by its burger range. Not quite ‘taster’ size, yet more manageable than the overbearing portions at some fashionable joints, BarSu’s burgers certainly aren’t found wanting in the taste stakes. The signature Chicken Burger (B360) comes topped with a generous helping of powerful Blue Jack cheese in a beet-dyed bun with sides of sautéed mushrooms & chunky home-style fries.

In terms of drinks, BarSu’s list includes Rossini’s Italian range of imported craft beers alongside regular domestic offerings. The cocktails are the real showstoppers here though. The potent Lady Killer cranberry caipirinha (B290) delivers a buzz akin to a kick with a steel toe-capped boot but without compromising on flavour, while the signature Su Su Margarita (B300) offers an icy chalice of slushy deliciousness that should be tried at least once. Still finding its feet in its new guise, BarSu’s revamped menus certainly suggest that this old dog has the potential for many new tricks.
