La Table De Tee

La Table De Tee was a restaurant I stumbled across when perusing affordable tasting menus in Thailand.

I’d wanted to experience a tasting menu for a while in Bangkok, however, with the prices sitting in the triple digits, S and I had never got around to doing it.

But then we found La Table De Tee.

Finding a new jewel in Bangkok is always a pleasure, especially so when the jewel is in a place where you’d least expect to find it. Like when it’s tucked down a dead end soi between a beauty salon and a massage parlour. The unique location of La Table De Tee gives it an authentic backstreet feel, yet the inside is intimately cosy, with the decor kept stylishly simple with accent photos of Bangkok taken at different angles adorning the walls.

Run by Thai chef Chatree Kachonklin, or as everybody calls him, Tee, La Table De Tee is a restaurant that celebrates Tee’s fine dining past and homegrown tastes. You see, for more than ten years Tee has run his independently owned business in Saladeang, but prior to this, he worked his way up through the ranks all the way to Chef De Partie at Roussillon, a Michelin star restaurant in London. Something you can see Tee pay homage too throughout his menu.

The menu at La Table De Tee changes weekly and offers six courses, with three courses being pre-set and three of the courses offering a choice from the two dishes listed. Each dish on the menu has been created by Tee, with his inspiration coming from the ingredients he sources during his daily visits to local markets. His menu creations display an array of interesting and unique flavour combinations which you can enjoy for the set price of 1,350฿ (THB) per person, (excluding service charge).

La Table De Tee is open nightly from 6:30 – 10:30 pm and has room for 20 diners at a time. Due to the size of the restaurant, bookings are advised and so we booked ours in a week ahead to be on the safe side. On the night we went we enjoyed:

A variety of fresh pastries.

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.

I then chose the pan-fried snapper with roast eggplant, glazed shallots, crispy fish skin and scrambled eggs served with a curried pineapple sauce for my main.

Whereas Sam chose the pan-seared cut of beef topped with truffle with creamed potatoes and served with baby vegetables and an apple roasted jus.

Before finishing with a hazelnut and dark chocolate fondant with coconut ice-cream and a cocoa tuille.

I wasn’t in the mood for decadent chocolate, and so instead opted for the lemon parfait with vanilla biscuit, berry ice cream, lemon sauce and mixed fruits. Which was incredible.

After this, we finished off our evening with peanut butter macaroons and passion fruit jelly – which were disappointingly average.

But the rest of the meal was incredible, so we weren’t too phased!
The quality of the food combined with the price point made La Table De Tee one of our favourite dinners out.

If you’d like to book a table you can do so by calling them on +66 2636 3220. Or alternatively, you can find La Table De Tee at 69/5 Soi Saladeang, Bang Rak, Bangkok.
