DB Bradley Restaurant at The Eugenia Bangkok

Fine Dining on Sukhumvit

This Restaurant is Currently Closed 

Once you discover DB Bradley, you will probably only want to share the fantastic secret with a select group of people. The restaurant, located on the ground floor of The Eugenia Hotel makes you feel like you have stepped back in time and that Bangkok’s traffic jams are a million miles away. Overall, the menu is distinctively European although many of the dishes have an Asian feel to them. The hotel may feel secluded but it is very easy to find, located a short taxi ride from Sukhumvit on Soi 31. Open from 11:30 to 14:30 for lunch and 18:00 to 23:00 for dinner, we recommend DB Bradley for intimate suppers with friends, or for a romantic dinner for two.

If you haven’t had the chance of visiting the Eugenia before then you are in for a treat. This is easily one of the most unique hotels in Bangkok, housed in an imposing mansion, complete with a treasure trove of antiques and collectibles that range from stuffed peacocks to antiquated wall hangings, with vintage automobiles on the drive. DB Bradely, located on the ground floor of the hotel, stays true to the hotel’s colonial feel. The main dining room is separated by an archway. On one side there are comfortable day beds, with light drapes, perfect for dining away from prying eyes, and the tables on the other side look through the French windows onto the jungle-green swimming pool. A smaller lounge is decorated with beautiful Thai artwork and scrolls. The lighting is kept low and mellow hits from the 50s and 60s play in the background.

With such a tempting menu it can be hard to know what to start with. We decided to keep it simple and order a salade niçoise with a Japanese twist. Served with slices of yellowfin tuna and edamame beans, it goes to show that classic dishes done well can often be the most popular on the menu. The dressing was light and let the flavours of the fish, egg and tomato speak for themselves. For a more complex starter we recommend the black truffle soup. Smooth and creamy, the rich flavours are enjoyable, and despite being served in a small soup tureen, it is enough to satisfy you. Although the decor is smart, the dining experience is very relaxing – high quality food without too many airs and graces.

As a main I picked the snow fish in champagne sauce, a daring pairing in which the strong aroma of the wine could easily overpower the delicate flavours of the fish. I shouldn’t have been nervous though, as the team at DB Bradley really know their stuff, with every delicacy carefully created using the finest ingredients and presented with flair. Apart from the snow fish, the restaurant’s other signature dishes include extremely tender lamb shank, which is braised for 72 hours at a temperature of 60.5c, and a 500 day wagyu beef tenderloin served in a miso broth. Service at DB Bradley is considerate and understated, and the team are knowledgeable about the food and impressive wine list.

Not only do they have a great selection of wines, but they also do some seriously strong cocktails. I tried the Zheng He Sour, a whisky based cocktail that packed a refreshing punch, a relief after the overly sweetened drinks that Bangkok seems to prefer. Their signature blend, the Eugenia Cocktail, appears to be served in a small goldfish bowl, a fruity blend that goes down far too easily.

I am never one to pass up on dessert, especially if it is crème brûlée, a French classic that more often than not doesn’t hit the mark and ends up either like scrambled eggs or liquid custard. Here at DB Bradley it is firm with a crisp sugar shell, and the handful of slightly sour cherries is a nice touch, complementing the hints of vanilla.
