Top Tables
ROCK RESTAURANT AND BAR
Ari continues the tradition of
small, original dining venues
with Rock, where large chunks
of natural stone have been
drilled, sculpted and polished to
produce surreal tables. Talented
chefs Nhoi Ouypornchaisakul
and Baimohn Tanataveetram
create seductive dishes that
bring together flavours from
Thailand, China, India and
Myanmar.

SANGUAN SRI
This classic, hard-to-find Thai
eatery on Wittayu Road near
”embassy row” is still going
strong after more than
20 years. Local office workers
crowd the place for heritage
Thai food such as
phra ram long
song
(tender pork and water
convolvulus in peanut sauce)
and
khao chae
(chilled jasmine-
scented rice with five side
dishes).

SEÑOR PICO MODERN
MEXICAN & TEQUILA BAR
Opened 17 years ago under
the memorable name “Señor
Pico of Los Angeles,” a brand
established by Victor Bergeron
of Trader Vic’s fame, this former
franchise is now independent,
and for the first time operates
under the direction of a
Mexican chef, Fernando Reyes
Barba. Rebuilt from the ground
up, the new menu features
authentic dishes such as
aguachile de camarón
(a soupy
concoction of prawns marinated
in lime juice, olive oil and chile
de arbol) as well as the usual
tacos, enchiladas, burritos and
guacamole.
