Bangkok Foodies Best Of Bangkok Hotel Saturday Brunches

Brought to you by Grand Hyatt Erawan Bangkok

          Sunday brunches, much like the hotter and sassier younger sister, have continued to charm Bangkok’s hip brunchers. Commonly, with the allure of creamy benedict eggs, bain marie dry bacon, free flow and sometimes questionable wines and audacious international spreads.

          Not that we’re complaining but some of us in our ripe age simply want to spend our Sundays to vegetate in bed, frolic with the family or simply be left alone to our demise, i.e. doing nothing! Waking up with crystal clear clarity and an uncorrupted palate on a Saturday morning has become an underrated state of being, and this is a confirmation we’ve received from BangkokFoodies.com readers desperately seeking Saturday brunch offerings.

          Therefore, by popular demand, we bring you Bangkok Foodies Best of Hotel Saturday Brunches, based on variety, taste, budget, and the fundamental truth in which we actually tried all these brunches, albeit sacrificed our pre-summer bodies. You’re welcome.

GRAND HYATT ERAWAN
“WEEKEND BRUNCH”  at Tables Grill, Grand Hyatt Erawan

Every Saturday and Sunday
Time: 11.00 am – 3.00 pm

          THINK: Epicness, decadence, romance, lobster, hot date, free flow Champagne, fine service, fresh to order, live cooking stations.

          THE DEAL: A unique and opulent approach to brunch dining, Tables Grill restaurant at the Grand Hyatt Erawan Bangkok provide live cooking stations where diligent cooks in pressed whites may flambé your fresh river prawns, lobster bisque or coulis.

          It’s also one of the few brunches that still shuck fresh oysters on-order and their carvery station offerings were likely the most hearty and succulent that we’ve tried. But an indulgent buffet is not complete without bubbles, endless bubbles of Louis Roederer Champagne – Brut Premier Champagne to be precise.

          The Weekend Brunch includes a special à la carte menu, offering dishes such as the pan-fried duck foie gras, poached eggs and homemade penne gratin, truffle risotto, also prepared fresh on-order and on rotation according to the season or chef’s liking.

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • The awesome Maine lobster thermidor, to which Tables has become well renowned for, you simply cannot forgo.
  • The Weekend Brunch at Tables has a distinct French touch which means do not go pass the fantastic array of house made sauces. A perfect complement to the top-quality Aussie prime rib, lamb, beef and exotic root vegetables.
  • There’s a surprise which lays upon the grand stairs of the Grand Hyatt Erawan. Behold! Dessert heaven. Tables Grill reserves a private room filled entirely of sticky, creamy, iced and toasted delicacies. You can almost hear the angels singing.
  • The Champagne and the fresh Fine De Claire oysters are a no-brainer. Do it!

          CROWD: The well-heeled and the hungry. Business types, French locals and discerning in-house guests.

          DRESSCODE: From neat casual to dress to impress, leave the flip flops and tees at home.

BKF TIPS:

  • Don’t get stuck on the bottomless Champagne, they have a mobile mixer bar with wonderful house-infused cocktails. The Coffee Meringue with Maker’s Mark Whisky, coffee, Vermouth and cheese makes for the perfect digestives.  
  • Speaking of cheese, the selection was great, if rather limited, although we heard that Tables Grill is soon to expand on their cheese selection in a big way, so follow Tables Grill for updates.
  • If you’re the kind of gourmand who also supports the eco-friendly movement, the Grand Hyatt Erawan Bangkok recently pledged on their Facebook page, that they’ve now “Skip the Straw”. No more plastic matter floating in your refreshments anymore, and this is a good a reason among the many to seek out Tables Grill’s fantastic Weekend Brunch.

SO SOFITEL BANGKOK
“MEATY SATURDAYS” at Red Oven, So Sofitel Bangkok

Every Saturday and Sunday
Time: 12 pm – 3.30 pm 

          THINK: Meat! (Duh). Stylish, a great view, friends hangout, variety, sushi and seafood grill.

          THE DEAL: The Red Oven at So Sofitel Bangkok have dedicated their Saturdays to meat, whether it’s succulent roast chicken or barbeque ribs, smoky pork or oven-baked lamb. You can dive into the spread which is lovingly prepared on their oven display or have your meats flamed by their staff to perfection.

          Other than accommodating the carnivores, the Red Oven also provide the diners with a live Japanese grill, along with a fair selection of charcuterie, cheese, salads, Thai dishes, a fruit cart and a dessert bar to polish off a protein-rich meal.

 

A post shared by Bangkok foodies (@bangkokfoodies) on

     

          THE CROWD: Young and hip but not hipsters. Couples, families and friends looking for a good time.

          THE DRESSCODE: Neat casual to relaxed formal. Get that summer dress or suede boat shoes out, this is a place to be seen.

THE HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Although this is a heavy meat-focused buffet, and it’s good, you must save room for the Japanese counterpart. The sushi is surprisingly fresh along with the Japanese grill seafood produce.
  • The view is a big drawcard for the Red Oven, as it wraps around one entire side of the restaurant, allowing diners to soak in that brazen Bangkok view.
  • Variety is the spice of life, although it would be impossible to get to all of the dishes on display, the Red Oven offers the most expansive variety, meaning it’s a great opportunity for those who love to snack on everything will have a field day with this buffet.

BKF TIPS:

  • For couples, book and request a window seat
  • Ask for their freshly squeezed orange juice, they don’t offer it verbally so you will need to ask for it. It’s the magical potion to start a delicious afternoon.
  • You absolutely must request the Salmon belly and smelt fish at the Japanese Grill. Honestly, almost as good as in Japan.
  • Not all the sashimi selection is great, but many are good, but to be sure, we recommend the Cucumber 3 fish Maki roll. We had 2 plates.
  • Last but not least, get the chocolate lava cake, baked fresh on order and simply to die for.

WESTIN GRANDE SUKHUMVIT
“BRUNCHIES MUNCHIES” at Zest Bar & Terrace, Westin Grande Bangkok, Sukhumvit.

Every Saturday
Time: 10.30 am – 2.30 pm

          THINK: Ladies brunch, mums day out, Instagram, fun for kids, tea and biscuits.

          THE DEAL: The Westin Grande Sukhumvit took a very different approach to the classic, gorge-yourself Sunday brunch. Instead, they decided to shrink food items into bite sizes and present them on a miniature picnic bench. The bench is covered in a variety of sweet and savoury pastries, sandwiches and brekkie treats which are good for 2 peckish persons and also comes with coffee, tea and a super smoothie in a light bulb glass.

          Enjoy the photogenic pieces crafted by Zest’s chef like the cereal bread avocado toast with pomegranate, mini smoked salmon on bagel with cream cheese, egg white and turkey scrambled wrap or the smoked duck, edam cheese croissant. Then top all that cuteness off with a quinoa muffin, chai scone with orange marmalade whilst sipping on a hot tea of your choice.

 

A post shared by Bangkok foodies (@bangkokfoodies) on

THE HIGHLIGHTS:

  • The fact of the matter is this brunch is more appealing to the eyes than the tongue. But that’s not to say many of the bites aren’t tasty, the mushroom ragout vol-au-vent and the mini duck and edam cheese croissant were excellent.
  • The atmosphere is rather lobby-esque but super comfortable with Zest’s big plush sofas, plus the terrace is a great place to chill and watch Bangkokians and tourists go about their Saturday.
  • If you’re snap happy like so many foodies, you’re going to have fun taking selfies and posing so adorably you might just burst.

          THE CROWD:  A mixed bag; Expats, travelling families, hotel guests, lazing locals and budget-seeking weekend warriors.

          THE DRESSCODE: Neat casual, come as you are (but showered, please)

BKF TIPS:

  • Bring the kids, your nieces or nephews, this is a playful brunch to keep them entertained and there’s plenty of room for them to roam.
  • The set is already very reasonable, at 990 THB (545 THB each), but if you shop on their online store, there are big discounts available! Yep, you could end up saving up to 20 – 30%.
  • This set does not come with any alcohol beverages, so if you’re really fighting the temptation (and your wallet), or you’re bringing along a sober mate, this deal will keep you both high but still dry.

PRICE: 990 THB(net) per set for 2 persons

SWISSOTEL LE CONCORDE
“BUFFET  A LA CARTE MENU” at Takumi, Swissotel Le Concorde

Everyday
Time: 11.30 am – 14.30 pm    

          THINK: Japanese, Japanese, Japanese!

          THE DEAL: Speaking of deals, this has got to be one of the best in Bangkok for Japanese buffets because every dish is made fresh per order. With a whopping 107 items and 10 that rotate every 2 months, diners can choose from a selection of Sashimi, Nigiri, Maki, Mono and Teppanyaki, along with hot or iced tea, cola or soda which is all-inclusive.

          Although, don’t expect the fish to be flown in daily from the Tsukiji market, but there are more than enough to satiate your Japanese cravings, if you know what to target and how to order it.

          THE CROWD: Fuji restaurant fans, Thai locals, Asian tourist and Asian guest.

          THE DRESSCODE: Casual but neat. Flip flops and casual tees acceptable here but don’t think you’re in Kao Sarn.

 

A post shared by Bangkok foodies (@bangkokfoodies) on

THE HIGHLIGHTS:

  • The a la carte dishes are served hot and fast, this is a bonus when you’re hungry and not willing to spend most of your afternoon waiting around to remind the waiter about your order.
  • The Grilled “Steaks” such as the Australian beef with peppercorn sauce, are nicely cooked, tender and juicy.
  • The private “rooms” with Japanese dividers are an excellent idea for a party. No need to freak out over what everyone is ordering, it’s one price per mouth and that mouth can be stuffed with limitless Japanese bites. 
 

A post shared by Bangkok foodies (@bangkokfoodies) on

BKF TIPS:

  • Because the food service is so fast (even if the wait service may often be sketchy), be sure not to over-order hot stuff in advance and in abundance as it will go cold quickly. If you do leave a bunch of leftovers, do note that there is a charge.
  • They have a dinner for the same deal except only 100 THB more, with the addition of unagi, engawa, and foie gras on the menu! 
  • Beware of the sweet cherry sauces you see in the menu pictures, as your dish will be covered in the sticky red stuff. As a precaution, ask for it on the side or not at all. 
  • For dessert, go for the cheese pudding and ginger sorbet, super zesty and refreshing and made fresh in-house.

PRICE: 890++ THB
