Hungry At The Hunting Lodge
The bustling megalopolis that is Bangkok doesn’t have much in the way of the Great Outdoors, especially in these tropical climes, but now it does have the rugged-chic S’mores Hunting Lodge, the latest addition to giant shopping complex CentralWorld. Run by the team from Siam Paragon’s popular Café de Tu, S’mores wows with its theatrics – beginning with its facade, where a stuffed grizzly bear towers over a cylindrical glass case, and continuing with log cabin-inspired interiors bursting with raw timber furniture, rustic wood-panelled walls, and taxidermy aplenty.
Luckily S’mores is more than meets the eye, as the food and drink lineup impresses as well. Take a perch and up the drama first with a signature cocktail like the bourbon-based 4th of July (Green Chartreuse, Peychaud’s Bitters, ginger ale, and vanilla syrup), a sparkler spectacle served in a pop-rock laced bottle. Next select from a Western-inflected menu including crowd pleasers like balsamic vinegar-sprinkled foie gras salads served with rocket, mango and strawberry compote; and cheeseburgers made with mozzarella cheese and patties ground from marbled tenderloin. As you might expect, no visit to this grill room is complete without the namesake – a DIY s’mores platter complete with graham crackers, caramel and chocolate sauces, and a charcoal-fired mini brazier for roasting marshmallows. Mmm, give us s’more!
