T & Bar

April 07, 2014
Tea Time!
We’ve seen the industrial look, perhaps one time too many, and we’ve experienced the rustic-kitsch vibe, but rarely the twain shall meet... that is, until T & Bar came along. This gorgeous little French-style bistro nestled in the buzzy Market Place Thonglor has somehow managed to successfully marry the two (although one of the owners being an architect might have helped!). The poured concrete walls, reclaimed wooden tables and steel chairs juxtapose prettily with interior design company Roger & Belle’s gingham sofa, flowery cushions, dainty crockery, and outdoor garden-style seating under a striped awning.

From the small, open kitchen come global comfort plates like slow-cooked beef and bacon ale pie; pan-fried cod in a lemon cream sauce with roasted sweet peppers; spaghetti in a Tom Yum sauce with prawns, squid and scallops; and, not to be missed, the signature pizza topped with kimchi and smoked bacon. Also a fab excuse for a mid-retail flop is their afternoon tea set of sandwiches, fresh-baked scones and sinful cakes served with either Fortnum & Mason tea or bubbles. Or for later on in the day, there’s a solid selection of Old and New World wines, and cocktails with a kick, like their signature mix of Bombay gin, triple sec, lemonade, elderflower syrup and herbal tea. Is it industrial? Is it rustic? Whatever it is, we like it!
