No matter how many times you’ve flown into Bangkok, with the luxury of discovering many different fine dining restaurants, there are still all those restaurants that you just need to re-visit. The menu of Le Du wasn’t the only new feature I got to experience, I was proud to visit it again as it claimed No.1 spot in Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants 2023.
The restaurant includes roomy design with stylish long dining tables and armchairs that extend relaxation and comfort for dining. My companion and I wasted no time in settling at our dining space as the dinner service would quickly follow.
Drinks and dinner
Le Du definitely grows strength to strength as the years go by. Through the 6-course menu (THB 4,000), the dishes come across as refreshing and delightful medley of flavors, textures and incredible ingredients.
I picked up the chance of savoring Khao Chae that was beautifully designed and plated with shrimp and pork ball, condiments and sorbet. The course of dinner continued to amp up excitement as we got to explore some ant larvae packing into some meat patties. The dish was unforgettable.
The next dish packed delicate soft shell crab, blue pea flower rice with some condiments and brought them all into one flavorful unity. It was one of my favorite dishes so far.
Packed with soul
Chef Tonn is not just the owner/chef of Le Du, he also operates several popular restaurants like Lahnyai, Nusara, Mayrai and Baan in Bangkok. Le Du’s newest menu does not just capture some old good dishes (like the local river prawn and wagyu) but it rekindles a lot more creativity and dedication. It’s not just a learning experience, it captures the soul of Thailand.
