“Thai Fusion Done Right” – Bangkok Cuisine
Bangkok Cuisine is a delicious Thai Culinary Arts restaurant located on the Upper East Side. With its marble décor, Swarski crystal chandeliers, and elegant French, glassware and stoneware featuring gold embellishments, Bangkok gives its customers the experience of dining at a Thai Palace. This romantic ambiance and beautiful decor makes Bangkok a perfect date night destination on the Upper East Side.
Bangkok’s menu is created by a chef Chef Tee Siriprakaisak who has over 15 years experience in traditional, regional and modernized Thai fusion preparation. Spearheaded by his extensive culinary background as well as Chef Tee’s use of traditional French cooking techniques, Bangkok Cuisine offers unique Thai dishes that you simply won’t find anywhere else. The interesting combinations and fun twist on traditional Thai food means that Bangkok Cuisine should be on your list of restaurants to try in NYC immediately.
Among some of Bangkok Cuisine’s signature Thai fusion dishes are The Volcano Duck (Crispy boneless half duck with carrots & celery tempura, eggs, spices in traditional pad pong karee sauce); The Roasted Rack of Lamb (Served with lamb jus, Thai basil leaves, asparagus, chili peppers & mashed potatoes) and the Pan-roasted Chilean Sea Bass (Chilean sea bass pan-roasted Asian style with light soy sauce, ginger & scallions). Sounds delicious, right? Trust me, all the food was fantastic during my first visit.
Check out some exclusive photos from my dining experience below:
Five-Star Thai Dumplings – Chicken & shrimp with soy vinaigrette dipping sauce (This was a meal highlight, some of the best dumplings I’ve had in NYC to date)
Duck Crêpe – Sliced duck, cucumber, celery, scallions, mixed greens with French Mustard & tamarind sauce (unique to Bangkok Cuisine)
Mango Avocado Salad – Scallions, red onions, tomatoes & cashews with tamarind dressing (a little spicy but was very tasty and the tamarind dressing was everything)
Stuffed Salmon with Panang Curry – Pan-roasted salmon with crab meat & shrimp stuffing, vegetables in Panang curry sauce (This was a meal highlight, the flavors and the meat were a perfect combination in the Panang Curry sauce)
Seafood Tom Yum Pad Thai – Sautéed rice noodles with shrimps, squids, scallops, mussels, eggs, peanuts, carrots, bell peppers, scallions, bean sprouts (This was a fun twist on the traditional Pad Thai, perfect for seafood lovers)
Fried Ice Cream
Overall, dining at Bangkok was a delicious and unique dining experience. I highly recommend giving Bangkok Cuisine a try!
