Indulge in Bangkok- RED SKY

We had a romantic dinner at Red Sky in Bangkok. It’s located on the top floor (55/F) of Centara Grand Hotel at Central World.

Not only does the restaurant have a magnificent view, the food and service were also wonderful.
We had Alaska king crab soup, beef cappacio, and French oysters as appetisers.

If you dont feel like a western meal in Bangkok, you should go there for drinks at least. They have live music there and lots of sunbeds and sofas where you can just relax and chill out!

Ichikawa Japanese Restaurant 市川日本料理

Went to Ichikawa at Festival Walk today. Japanese cuisine specialising in teppanyaki.

We sat at the outdoor area facing the sashimi counter and the mall.

Sashimi was really fresh 🙂 next to it was smoked duck breast salad.

The grilled chicken wings and ox tongue were freshly grilled. I love ox tongues but it’s difficult to get good ones. I often find them too thick and chewy that my tooth gum got sore… These ones at Ichigawa were great. I think they are better than the ones at Torimen.

Oyster tempura.

We ordered one set dinner for 2 persons (comes with soup, rice and desserts as well) and extra sashimi and grilled dishes. Total cost $1380 for 4 of us.

Bistecca Italian Steakhouse

I was told that Bistecca was one of the best steakhouses in town. We tried it tonight. It’s good but i think it still has a bit of distance when comparing to the Steakhouse of Intercontinental Hong Kong.

The bread was really good- fresh, soft, the taste of herbs and olives were just right!

We ordered a Caesar salad for entree… It’s not bad but nothing surprising.

For main, we had a 16oz rib eye and lobster tail.

20130607-234848.jpg
The steak is a little too rare when we ordered for a medium… I liked the black truffle sauce that comes with the steak though. It’s creamy and gives an interestingly perfect combination with the steak!
Lobster was also just average… A bit overcooked and too pricey for this size.

Overall, this place is a bit overrated and I much much much prefer the intercon steakhouse!

Bistecca Italian Steakhouse

Torimen, Soho

My dear skinny friends Joey and Mishell have been telling me how amazing Torimen was, how much food they ate last time (hmm two size 6 girls…) and that it’s a must must must-go! I was like… Okay… let’s see how good it is! (as i’m always picky and difficult to please~)
And IT WAS REALLY GOOD!

ImageHmm yeh it’s just us 4 girls… we ordered a whole lot and the entire chef table was full of our food. People must be freaked out with how much we ordered! A lot of food i just forgot to take photos (or couldnt be bothered) because i was too busy eating!cherrytomato
I don’t normally eat cherry tomatoes but this is soooo delicious. Tomatoes were really fresh and juicy, makes perfect combo with bacon and melted cheese…
icecream
This is more of an ordinary dessert according to the chef… Taro ice-cream. It’s great! not too sweet especially after such a full meal.

ImageI thought my stomach couldn’t bare but this Apple Crunch actually relieved it a bit… semi-sweetened apple pieces with crepes. Not heavy at all.
$$$ wise… We spent about $500/head
