In Bangkok last week, our family had the usual issues of finding a mutually acceptable restaurant for our complicated dietary set-up. Namely:
1 carnivore who is highly allergic to any seafood. Even a hint provokes rapid & very bad reactions
1 carnivore who will eat some shellfish but is still a tad worried about allergies
Another Hound Café, located in the plush Siam Paragon Mall, came up trumps.
Billing itself as Italian with an Asian twist, the café is stylish and quirky, with excellent service. We all ate well, and we all had interesting, different, not your usual run-of-the-mill food.
Plus they have the coolest “chandeliers” ever.
Super stylish bread basket, too:
The café’s justifiably popular oyster platter starter (below) was divine.
4 huge oysters served with very interesting dipping sauces, a bowl of fried shallots and cha-om tips (climbing wattle).
A vegetarian version of the cold Japanese salad (below) was declared a resounding success:
Everyone was happy with their food, and we all tasted as many of the dishes as our complicated dietary requirements permitted.
Below is a simple-sounding spinach tagliatelle dish was excellent.
Good food. Polite efficient service.
We paid our own way, and I didn’t tell the staff that I blog and review.
