Soi Convent, which runs between Silom and Sathorn roads, is buzzing with activity lately, and recently two restaurants made their delicious debuts here. Via Maris is the latest project of the folks behind the ever-popular Vesper Cocktail Bar, and this new resto is, in fact, located right beside Vesper. It’s a casual-upbeat bistro serving dishes inspired by the cuisines of North Africa, Spain, Southern Italy, and the Eastern Mediterranean. Meanwhile, a few doors down, Kika has taken over the 2-storey spot that the Heritage Bakery once occupied. The tagline of this Spanish-inspired tapas bar is “small plates with big flavours”, and as the joint team behind have also brought you Quince, Sing Sing Theater, Oskar Bistro and Birds Rotisserie, you know the food—and the cocktails—are going to be amazing!
