Taper Bangkok is permanenty closed
Taper Bangkok is a small but lively brunch restaurant serving hearty western style dishes, with the added bonus of some creative culinary surprises on the menu. Located on Thonglor Soi 13, it has a distinctly neighbourhood feel, made all the more cosy due to the downstairs design: an open kitchen dominates the space, with stools up against the counter creating an experience very much like a Sunday morning in your home kitchen when your relatives all come to stay.

The team behind Taper are the same gang who started the very successful high-end restaurant, Le Du, in Sathorn, and even though a couple of the dishes sneaked onto the menu at Taper, the premise is very different. Open from 09:00 to 16:00, only breakfast and lunch is served here, with conventional feel good food like eggs benedict, waffles, pancakes and pastas that will fill you up all day, but also some surprising culinary twists.
The congee (rice porridge) is a deconstructed dish that was a big hit at Le Du, and they have brought it over to Taper. Costing 330 baht, each ingredient is placed separately into the exceedingly smooth brown rice porridge, and the diner has to mix themselves. This is not only visually pleasing, it means each ingredient is more distinct in taste. This is one of our favourite dishes from Le Du and even though it might raise some eyebrows on a brunch menu, we say ‘go for it’.
The waffles with duck and honey butter (390 baht) is a lovely combination of American breakfast meets Chinese lunch to make a Taper brunch dish. The duck is cooked sous vide and finished off in the oven for a succulent yet flaky duck that is unusual on a waffle but certainly complements it. The honey butter is lovely to drizzle on top as it is sweet and rich in just the right amounts. For the health conscious there is granola and an interesting tofu dish with pureed carrot, but when it comes to sweet treats, throw the diet out the window and try the American pancakes with coconut in four separate ways: coconut caramel sauce, coconut whipped cream, dried coconut, and fresh jelly-like slivers (235 baht for two large pancakes).
Lunch at Taper Bangkok is a friendly, fun and, at times, frantic experience. Diners can’t help but get sucked into the scene, watching the chefs prepare your orders and chatting intermittently over the clanking of pots and gurgle of the coffee machine. One thing is for sure, you will never feel lonely in this restaurant! There is an upstairs dining room, good for larger groups who want to chat, but you miss all the fun of the open kitchen and we feel that’s all part of the Taper experience.
