Zeist Restaurant Bangkok
Some nice dishes are available here. The menu focuses on a small number of choices, which ensures maximum attention to detail. Home-made smoked duck makes a divine starter with sprouts, mushrooms and other meticulously selected ingredients under slices of warm meat. Smoked salmon is wonderful, wrapped around a tasty blob of mascarpone cream cheese mixed with crab meat, alongside a tiny rocket salad. Warmed salad of butternut squash brings cubes tasting similar to pumpkin, sprinkled with garlic, and pieces of sauteed ham, tomatoes and sprouts. Rack of lamb with ratatouille and red wine sauce arrives as five chops with a side of cubed carrots and garlic mashed potatoes. Duck leg confit is crispy, served with mushrooms, squash and a cheese-infused potato gratin. Make space for dessert because tiramisu is very delicious.
Mustard-coloured walls frame a large, sensuous mosaic and a big aquarium, lending a lively ambience to this small, intimate restaurant. Modern, tasteful touches include chocolatecoloured tablecloths and soft ballads playing in the background.
