Brasserie 9 in Sathorn, a foodies haven in a mighty colonial mansion
Has anyone been to Brasserie 9 yet? What an extraordinary piece of architecture and history! Bangkok Foodies finally had the opportunity to explore this mansion in Sathorn soi 6, for a four hands dinner between Chef Kenny and Chef Herve Frerard and a few outstanding dishes ensued.
The foie gras with mango ravioli by Chef Kenny and the egg caviar dish by Chef Herve were both remarkable. More details on the workings of these marvelous dishes can be found @bangokfoodies instagram. But I seriously want to talk about that house.
What I love about it, apart from its sheer size, was that each corner, hallway, stairwell and of course, room, had its own character, shape and size. There is a luscious little cold room with beautiful glassdoors to store the wine with cheeses and cold cuts and other sexy looking delicacies set up on the table like a delicious centrepiece.
The dining room upstairs is small but quaint with a bar area where they display fresh seafood on ice, which I thought was a nice touch and fairly unseen in other local French restaurants. The kitchen downstairs is wide and spacious, with a brigade of 20+ making the kitchen wheels turn meticulously in their personalised uniforms.
We didn’t manage to explore all the quarters as there are private dining areas but the patio porch that wraps the facade is a great place to sit for a cigar and whisky and speaking of whisky, they have this incredible whisky trolley I just fell in love with. Gold and glass, retro and sophisticated.
So if you’re in the area, definitely check it out. I’ve not yet tried their a la carte menu but based on what I had, I would certainly give it a shot, or just go and chill on the patio with a glass of wine, some cheese and cold cuts and make the most of what is left of the classic colonial architecture in the city.
