It seems only fitting that London's Michelin-starred Thai restaurant nahm
should come to Bangkok. David Thompson just opened a second outpost of the beloved resto at The Metropolitan Bangkok
, the hip urban hotel known for its oasis-like rooms and chic lounge bar. A major new address in the Thai capital, the restaurant will no doubt become popular with guests and locals alike. What's on the menu? A quick read of the website certainly whets the appetite: "Standout dishes will include rare ingredients from all regions of Thailand. These include a jungle curry with pla chorn (a fresh water fish). There will also be a colourful array of salty and sweet Thai desserts and an extensive wine menu." The Metropolitan Bangkok is inviting guests to toast the resto opening with an overnight stay packed with extras — including a signed copy of the Australian chef’s book on the cuisine. The offer
, which runs until October 31, 2010, includes an exotic welcome drink on arrival, dinner for two in nahm, as well as breakfast the next morning. Rates start from US $205 (single occupancy) or US $280 (double occupancy) for an overnight stay.
