[Thailand: Bangkok] Farm to Table at 2* Baan Tepa

Rating: 3.75/5

Last meal in Bangkok this time was at Baan Tepa which has just been newly promoted to 2 Michelin Stars! Chef Tam Chudaree Debhakam had previously worked at Dan Barber's Blue Hill Farm in New York and continued the farm-to-table concept at her current restaurant - located at a vast compound which used to be her family home. The current 9-course tasting menu takes guests on a culinary journey around Thailand with highlights such as the crab 3 ways, black squid ink noodles and Khao Mok beef with rice. While the meal was solid-ish, I was expecting more for a 2 starred restaurant though.

Our menu:
