Eating out: Sühring Bangkok
I tagged along on Mr Chef’s work trip to Bangkok recently and we got ourselves a table at Sühring, the restaurant by German twin chefs that everyone’s been raving about – and one of Asia Top 50’s best restaurants.
My experience with Germany and gastronomy hasn’t been the best, not even at a Michelin-starred restaurant in Berlin.
Partly due to the fact that admittedly I always get the special treatment with the husband and am spoilt by annual Michelin starred road trips across Europe (France and Spain), so I guess my benchmark is based on my personal experiences.
Sühring was a pleasant surprise – the food was excellent, as was the service and wine pairing and we left nicely filled up with the 12 course dégustation, without feeling over-stuffed.
The lighting was dim so I didn’t manage to get great photos. I loved everything from the tiny beer mugs to start, the cold cuts, pretzels, the currywurst comparable to the amazing ones I had in Hamburg and Berlin. Loved the Spätzle, but would have loved half the truffles generosity we enjoy at Otto e Mezzo in Hong Kong.
I can’t recommend this place enough – if there’s one fine dining meal you need to do in Bangkok, it’s at Restaurant Suhring. And I am pretty sure they’d be awarded at least a star in the Bangkok Michelin guide this year.
