La Cantina Bangkok is one of those restaurants that you could walk past a thousand times without taking a second glance, with its low-key exterior and unassuming sign. Yet those that do venture inside are in for a real treat.

24 Owls

24 Owls is the most charming all night venue in Bangkok. It has a bit of a bric-a-brac interior with cute ornaments dotted around, a quaint garden out the back, a full menu of western and Thai dishes, and a fully stocked bar featuring craft beers and great coffee. Limited plug sockets mean this is not the best place for a late night study session, but is excellent for refuelling after a big night out in Sukhumvit, and why not a last beer for the road. Free Wi-Fi.

Aston Dining Room and Bar

Aston Dining Room and Bar is a lively fine-dining restaurant that has some grand ideas about food, and relies on customers to understand their ambitious concept. First of all there is no a la carte menu served here, rather just a six course taster menu of haute cuisine (2,800 baht, not including tax, with an optional cheese course). Although the menu sources delicacies from around the world such as wagyu beef cheek or French artisanal cheese, there is an ideology at Aston Restaurant that ingredients should be grown and sourced locally, both for superior taste and for the ecological implications.

Baan Rai Coffee

More of a restaurant than a coffee shop, Baan Rai Coffee nevertheless serves a huge variety of food and drinks around the clock. The location is a definite plus, right on the corner of Ekkamai (Sukhumvit Soi 61) in an al fresco setting decorated with old bricks in an ancient Ayuthaya style (indoor seating also available). Prices are slightly higher than you would pay elsewhere, although they do offer 24 hour service which perhaps explains it.

Bellino and Bruttino in Bangkok are two sister bars bringing the charm and charisma of Capri to Bangkok’s coolest party street.

Best Beef

Best Beef is located in On Nut, east of downtown Bangkok but still close to the BTS, and is hugely popular with locals and expats thanks to the huge selection of barbecued meats and vegetables available for just 229 baht for two hours. This open-air but under-cover restaurant gets hot and you will smell like beef for the rest of the evening due to the spit-back from the iron skillet, but if you are looking for a big, meaty feed just how local Bangkokians do it, Best Beef is highly recommended. The menu (in Thai) has four cuts of beef, three cuts of pork, as well as offal including liver, tongue and intestines, all available in unlimited amounts which you cook yourself directly at the table.

This corner restaurant on ground level of Serm-Mit Tower is packed at lunch with office workers coming for its reasonably-priced gourmet set lunch menu.

Xuan Mai

This two-storey shop-house restaurant claims to serve ‘the most authentic, interesting and delicious Vietnamese food in Bangkok’. Quite an ambitious statement to make, although not at all uncommon in Bangkok’s dining scene. With a beauty pageant-turned-FBI agent-turn-chef at the helm, Xuan Mai has got quite a story to tell. But what about the food? Besides Vietnamese mainstays, Xuan Mai's menu offers a number of speciality dishes, such as Vietnamese papaya salad (no, it's not som tam), grilled chicken with coconut and mung bean sticky rice as well as Saigon-style cold noodles. The food here has received more than a dozen ‘two thumbs up’ from local food critics, so Xuan Mai does live up to its bold claim.

Wattana Panich Restaurant

This old shop house on Ekkamai Road is easy to spot thanks to the absolutely enormous stewing pot at the entrance. Bubbling away all day are tender cubes of braised beef in rich gravy that keeps the meat tender and deliciously succulent, with added flavour coming from the use of Chinese herbs such as star anise, cinnamon and small goji berries. Certainly, Wattana Panich Restaurant is among the very best local restaurants in Bangkok, and the open faced shophouse is so typically Thai it could be used in a movie set. This beef is served with noodles, starting from 80 baht for regular or 100 baht for a large bowl, and there is also the option of even more tender goat meat starting from 200 baht.

As is the norm in most local Bangkok restaurants, Wattana Panich has a range of noodles to choose from, with large, flat ‘sen yai’, medium sized ‘sen lek’, or hair-thin ‘sen mee’ noodles. Everyone has a different preference so it’s really up to you to try them all and see which you like best.

What to Order: Beef noodles – the type of noodle is up to you! (ก๋วยเตี๋ยวเนื้อ)
