A Sanskrit Hit!
While amontre in Sanskrit means ‘everlasting angel’, for the foodies frequenting Sathorn Road, it means a new, relaxed-chic hotspot to drink and dine. Helmed by a restaurant dream team of food stylist Josh Shackman, chef Wanchai and esteemed New York mixologist Joseph Boroski, this gastronomical fusion of Western and Thai cuisine comes in a sleek, urban space with hanging metal lanterns and floor-to-ceiling windows that provide stunning vistas of the city beyond.
And with an intimate patio perfect for alfresco sips, mixers and shakers should opt for Thai-style frozen cocktails like the Purple Haze of vodka, blue curacao, triple sec, cherry brandy and cane sugar, while vino-aficionados can agonise between New World wines and Moet champagne.
Western dishes include beer-battered (or grilled for those watching their waistline) fish and chips, char-grilled beef tenderloin with potato and beetroot rosti, or chorizo, chili and goat’s cheese linguine, but for a more local flavour, try the traditional Thai gai yang prik gaeng krati (spiced chicken with cucumber pickle and curry dipping sauce), or the specialty khao phad amontre of fried rice with tuna in green curry sauce. And keeping to the Euro-Asian theme, dessert must-tries range from British winter warmer apple pie to Thai soft mango with sweet rice and coconut cream.
