About Eatery Bangkok - Why We Love It
Cheese and wine fans rejoice as this Sukhumvit destination, About Eatery, is the place to indulge. A brick-walled and wooden crate aesthetic showcases a diverse range of organic and biodynamic wines paired alongside a menu of cold cut meats and classic Italian dishes from sustainable producers. Creating ‘environmental harmony’ is the cornerstone of their philosophy. It gives a sense of how important the selection process of food and beverage means to the team.
And we’ve missed good bread and olive oil, so top marks for the complimentary selection that runs alongside the menu. The menu has a range of classic Italian dishes with ingredients being sustainably sourced throughout Thailand. The farm to table concept includes homemade pasta, made to create plates such as black truffle ravioli and pappardelle served beside Australian wagyu beef, shaved parmesan and rosemary. Cheese and cold cut meats can be ordered by the gram, 35, 50 and 100 or for a selection you can opt for their 3 sizes of mixed boards. Manchego, pecorino and wild boar salami are some of our favourites to nibble alongside your vino.
Reflection of Great Natural and Biodynamic WinesAbout Eatery has a well-crafted drinks menu, which reflects great natural and biodynamic wines. It's super accessible with each bottle or glass having its own table of stats. This includes its residual sugar count and tick boxes showing whether the grapes were hand-harvested. Minimal intervention is at the core of what proprietor Giulio Saverino aimed to create. And we believe he can be proud to have such a fine selection for choosing. Our favourite is a Yarra Valley, 2016 Chardonnay by the glass. Traditional buttery notes from oak aging and a slight effervescence which is notable in many organic wines. Alongside their business runs a takeaway service inclusive of discounts of up to 30% depending on how many bottles you buy.
So in essence About Eatery is an omnichannel approach to a wine front. A traditional Italian restaurant, A wine bar to nibble cheese and sip delicious wine, Or you stop on the way home to pick up a bottle to have in front of the sofa. Enjoy.
