Paste restaurant, Bangkok

By Thierry Dessauve

Nestled in the heart of Bangkok’s Ratchaprasong district, traditional, yet ingeniously modernized, national culinary favorites are reimagined by the meticulous Chef, Bonkoch ‘Bee’ Satongun, making this restaurant a marvel that stands out above and beyond its commercial environs. On the inside, exposed wooden beams set against expansive windows do well to illustrate the idea that is the soul of Paste: an acknowledgement of tradition in harmony with the flare of contemporary haute cuisine.

The greatest ambassador for the philosophy of this restaurant, however, is quite unsurprisingly the menu. Here, the grounded sense of modernity that motivates Chef Bee, Asia’s best female chef (2018), is at its most refined. Sourcing as many of her ingredients as possible from the city’s best markets ensures that her dishes are locally furnished and never stray too far from tradition.

The result is a dining experience that can satiate both the simplest of appetites, as well as those with intellectual curiosities beyond the sensual experience of the food on your palate. So, if you either have an affinity for great-tasting, innovative cuisine, or appreciate dishes with a rich history and evolution, then Paste is well worth your visit.
