Review

Setting

For chef Dan Bark’s adventurous 10-course dinner served above the Mikkeller craft beer bar in a charming standalone house tucked away in the backstreets of Ekamai. Wines are not allowed, so it’s a beer, mead or cider pairing to complete the sense of something decidedly different.

Rating  : 17/20

Food

The stylishly assembled dishes are served with a full explanation of what is on the plate and where it came from. The one or two-word course descriptions (ikura, apple, pea, seafood bisque, cauliflower, wagyu beef, tortellini, duck, longan and chocolate) identifies an ingredient but gives little other clue as to what you might be about to enjoy as each creation arrives at the table. Pea, for example, is a melange of radish, pea puree, rice wafer, cress, shaved mushroom and leaves plus sauces and a few shelled peas. It is fun visually and on the taste buds. There is a little bit of sorcery thrown in too for the tortellini course, which involves evaporating a stock through a mix of vegetables. This a serious evening of fun dining with decent-sized servings that when paired with a variety of international beers throughout the journey leaves a feeling of something just that little bit special.

Rating : 37/40

Wine

This is a beer only restaurant but there is a staggering choice on tap and by the bottle. Take the advice of the beer professional on hand and have fun getting to know which beers work best with what.
