Suhring: Bangkok, Thailand – Sophisticated and playful

What’s it all about? Twin brothers Mathias and Thomas Sühring meld flavours, techniques and experiences accumulated in their native Germany as well as the Netherlands, Italy and Thailand, under one modish roof.

What’s the vibe? Step through the luscious front garden to a 1970s villa renovated by the twins in 2016, a blissful and calming breath of fresh air in Thailand’s energetic capital. Some tables overlook the open kitchen; others enjoy the tropical landscape courtesy of the glass-ceilinged atrium.

Typical dishes: European influence is welcomed in a city known for racy spices, and strong plates on the three-chapter menu include Frankfurter Grüne Soße and smoked eel;  a one-bite chicken salad; a currywurst street food tribute served in a box complete with wooden fork; and spaetzle egg noodles topped with Alba truffles, all inciting plenty of German culinary nostalgia.

Worth noting: Sühring now forms part of the Relais & Châteaux league of top establishments, and notched up its second Michelin star in 2018. Riesling fans will relish the Mosel and Alsatian wine pairings.
