“Enoteca introduces a new menu that flips the table on some of the most infamously misconceived and stereotyped Italian dishes”
Tucked away in a small alley in the middle of the business district of Bangkok is Enoteca (‘wine library’), providing a genuine Italian gourmet experience since 2004.
Based on a classic tune ‘Tu vuo’ fa’ l’Americano’, which translates to ‘You wanna be American’, Enoteca introduces a new menu that flips the table on some of the most misconceived and stereotyped Italian dishes.
Created by Nicolas Bonazza and executed by Enoteca’s Head Chef Stefano Borra, the themed menu will have dishes presented in an abstract fashion, designed to play tricks on our preconceived ideas of Italian stereotypical meals.
Peculiarly, the Caesar Salad is a mythical dish never heard of in Italy before and is believed to be a foreign invention. Enoteca’s interpretation comprises of deep fried chicken skin with a very rich mayonnaise sauce (a lot of Parmesan inside) and dried speck ham.
The ‘Meat Balls with Spaghetti’ is translated into a plate of five single meatballs, with fried spaghetti twirls garnished atop and a weave of al dente pasta underneath. Diners may be surprised by the contrast between the traditional taste and deviating appearances.
Some new dishes introduced in this menu includes ‘Liquid bruschetta and Caesar Salad’, ‘Looking for Alfredo’, and ‘Chicken Parmy’.
In addition, an extensive wine list of more than 400 labels is available at Enoteca including a Barolo collection and rare vintage wines.
