La Table De Tee

Finding a new jewel in Bangkok is always a pleasure, especially so when the jewel is tucked down a dead end soi between a beauty salon and a massage parlour.
 
S and I had been looking to experience a tasting menu for a while in Bangkok, however with the prices sitting in the triple digits, we had never got around to doing it.
But then we found La Table De Tee.
 

 
La Table De Tee is a restaurant run by Thai chef Chatree Kachonklin, or as everybody calls him, Tee. Tee worked his way up through the ranks all the way to Chef De Partie at Roussillon, (a Michelin star restaurant in London), and his restaurant is a collaboration and celebration of his fine dining past, and his home grown tastes. Rather than running an a la carte menu in his restaurant, Tee runs a permanent tasting menu, which costs 1,150b, is changed weekly and offers six courses, with three of the courses offering a choice between two options. The menu is based upon whichever fresh ingredients he can get his hands on and displays an array of interesting and unique flavour combinations. Such as;
 
A variety of fresh pastries.
 

 
The creamy crab and Thai herb custard, served with seaweed tempura.
 

 
Juicy pink duck breast served with braised peas, bacon and baby sprouts with a makrut lime dressing and duck jus.
 

 
Creamy spinach risotto with quail eggs and spicy chorizo with a chicken jus.
 

 
Pan fried snapper with roast eggplant, glazed shallots, crispy fish skin and scrambled eggs served with a curried pineapple sauce.
 

 
Pan-seared cut of beef topped with truffle with creamed potatoes and served with baby vegetables and an apple roasted jus.
 

 
Hazelnut and dark chocolate fondant with coconut ice-cream and a cocoa tuille.
 

 
Lemon parfait with vanilla biscuit, berry ice cream, lemon sauce and mixed fruits.
 

 
The evening is then finished off with peanut butter macaroons and passion fruit jelly,
 

 
Which were disappointingly average.
 
Luckily the rest of the meal was delicious, which more than made up for it!
 
You can find La Table De Tee at: 69/5 Soi Saladeang, Bang Rak, Bangkok.
