It has some of the traditional feel of a French auberge but without the presence of a French family owner. A very accomplished Filipino duo croons ballads every evening. Located at the Mercury Tower near the Ploenchit skytrain station.
Even with the absence of a French chef, Auberge Dab serves very fine food. Although frequented mostly by a Thai clientele the food is prepared to a traditional French style. Specialities include pan-fried duck liver with peach sauce that, like many of the dishes, is somewhat heavy in preparation but succulent in taste, and a fine roasted scallop presented cappuccino style. French onion soup served with a pastry cover is rich in taste and one of the best in town. Roasted duck leg confit, like many of the meats on offer, is flown in from France and is cooked to crispy perfection on the outside and juicy on the inside. Do leave room for desserts as soft bitter chocolate cake is a stand out.
