A modern yet authentic Thai restaurant in the heart of Bangkok
Staying true to authentic Thai flavours, Market Café Thai Restaurant is located conveniently on the 4th Floor of Hyatt Regency Hotel on Sukhumvit 13 Road easily accessible via Nana BTS Skytrain station.
This all-day dining spot opens for the breakfast buffet while also offering delicious a-la-carte options to guests throughout the day.
Through a meticulous screening process, the Market Café has accumulated speciality chefs from all regions, making sure to offer the best and most authentic Thai dishes without dumbing down the traditional tastes as envisioned by Frederik Farina, Executive Chef and Director of Food & Beverage.
The menu is a combination of various best-loved Thai favourites with a mixture of a few unique dishes the chefs’ team came up with. I’ll do my best to feature some I believed everyone must try.
Started with the appetisers which are Kor Moo Tod Nga (B190), deep-fried sesame pork neck that is crispy on the outside and supple on the inside served with spicy sauce, and Peek Gai Tod Jaew (B180), caramelised chicken wings fried then rolled in spicy jaew sauce.
We started the main dishes with the kitchen’s own creative recipe, Sen Yai Phad Kapi Goong (B170) which is an unusual but pleasant blend of stir-fried flat noodle served with prawns in shrimp paste and chopped long beans. The shrimp paste combination made the dish very aromatic but not overpowering making it very unique, memorable and delicious.
Next came Goong Mae Nam Tod Kratiem (B550) or stir-fried giant river prawns served with freshly crushed garlic. Followed by Tom Som Pla Kraphong (B250), a soupy dish made of sour sea bass cooked with tamarind, ginger, spring onions, and shrimp paste but not to worry, the shrimp paste was more like an enhancer, adding additional aroma and taste to an already delicious combination.
Last but not least and a must-try dish, Gang Pu Bai Cha Plu (B380), a large bowl of rich yellow curry with fresh crab meat and betel leaves served with a piece of betel leaf omelette.
There are many classic desserts to choose from such as Khao Neaw Ma Muang or mango sticky rice which is available all year round but I’d like to present the Khao Niew Fak Thong Sang-Ka-Ya (B150), steamed pumpkin egg custard served with sticky rice with coconut milk on top.
