Japanese Fusion Find

November 14, 2013

A cursory glance at the mockup of Kaguya – Japanese gastrobar with a French twist, housed in a modern space featuring wooden block ceilings, thatched bamboo and stone bar, sleek sushi counter and comprehensive cocktail list – would have many assuming it was just the newest cool kid on the block in a city like New York or Los Angeles. But a closer look reveals that Kaguya is actually arguably the trendiest Japanese fusion restaurant to open in Bangkok, bringing to Thonglor’s Soi 10 an instant hit that’s big on both style and flavour.

From behind the counter come traditional cuts of sashimi and sushi, as well as the full range of popular maki rolls from spicy salmon to rainbow, while elsewhere smoked duck breast salad and vanilla soup with seared scallop draw their influences from the French.

The house signature ‘seafood Shabu Shabu’ puts a spin on the meaty cold weather favourite, by preparing shrimp and vegetables to simmer in a creamy seafood bisque, and similarly the beloved Japanese ingredient king crab is here grilled and then served with a sautéed mushroom and leek puree. As for the cocktail program, well, it’s headed by one of Diego Hennessy’s mixologists and features standouts like the Gentleman’s Truth with gin, herbal liqueur, citrus and a hint of oregano. France meets Japan meets Bangkok!
