Taberna Jamon Jamon is officially our favourite Spanish restaurant in Bangkok, serving painstakingly authentic tapas dishes in a casual, homely atmosphere. The owner, Patricia, has recently moved to Bangkok from Madrid and has gone to great lengths to recreate the real taste and ambiance of her native land. For example, the chorizo sausage is made in-house, seasonal ingredients are imported directly from Spain and a leg of Iberico ham sits on a pedestal which is sliced fresh for every order, as you would expect in Madrid but perhaps not in Bangkok.

Serving food throughout the day and night, Taberna Jamon Jamon serves breakfast, lunch and dinner in a central location, 50 metres down Sukhumvit Soi 20 (in between Asok and Phrom Phong BTS Skytrain Station). Tapas plates range from 100 baht to 300 baht.
The menu sticks to classic dishes such as garlic prawns (200 baht), ham croquettes (140 baht) and calamari (150 baht). The prawns come served in the pan, full of flavour and drizzled in olive oil, while the ham croquettes are one of the most popular dishes thanks to the combination of crispy shell, creamy béchamel sauce inside and diced cured ham. Served in a set of four, they make great finger food with a glass of wine.
For us, the tomato bread and Iberico ham (Pan con tomate y Jamon Iberico) is an absolute must-try. As stated, the cured ham is cut fresh and placed in rolls on top of sweet, diced tomato and Spanish bread. The meat is rich in taste, soft in texture and, and due to the simple flavours, could be eaten at any time of day. At 300 baht, it is excellent value for money too. Also on the menu is cheese on toast (tosta de torta de Extremadura). This simple dish is noteworthy due to the sublime Torta de Barros cheese applied liberally to the bread. This soft cheese has won multiple awards and is the perfect example of a Spanish snack made simply but using top of the line ingredients.
Taberna Jamon Jamon only has one dessert, but it’s a good one. Melted chocolate with sugared churros is served warm, with the rich chocolate going perfectly with the golden doughnut texture of the churros.
On Friday evenings, Taberna Jamon Jamon is bringing a real Spanish fiesta vibe to downtown Bangkok with a Flamenco night, complete with music, dancers, colorful frocks and castanets. Throw formalities aside enjoy some of the finest tapas-style dishes around with a glass of equally fine sangria, available by the glass or 0.5 litre jug. This level of authenticity can’t be found in other Spanish restaurants in Bangkok.
