Another restaurant at 72 courtyard that we like.
By Posh Wattanaporn
This newly opened Barcelona-style tapas restaurant builds upon the success of Toro in Boston and New York City. Chef Ken Oringer and Jamie Bissonnet decided to bring Toro to Bangkok, led by Chef Zach Watkins, who’s been working for Ken and Jamie for several years. Toro Bangkok offers a fun and creative menu that serves not only traditional Spanish food but also combines modern techniques with slightly influence of Thai flavor.
Eat: We found ensalada de sandia (watermelon salad with baby anchovies, pomelo and cotija cheese) and Spanish octopus with spicy tomato jam interesting. What we love is the hanger steak (filete a la plancha). The beef is very tender while the green curry butter and braised red onion are full-flavored. Make sure you don’t miss the churros, which are fresh from the fryer and covered in sugar and cinnamon.
Drink: Try Watermelon Sangria and Spanish Wine.
