J’AIME by Jean-Michel Lorain @ Bangkok, Thailand


This is a new French restaurant located in a new hotel.  The place is not easy to find so best to go by taxi.

Very spacious restaurant with high ceiling.  I imagine it will be very comfortable during the day as well.

There are two tasting menu, 6-course and 9-course and we went for the 9-course.

Very pretty cocktail – the middle was passion fruit ice cube.IMG_0615

The restaurant goes the Asian way for food sharing and they serve their dishes by placing them in the center turn table. I guess it would be more interesting if there are more people at the table.  And it soon became a bit of a nuisance when hot dishes came and the plates were hot.

Oyster – the most impressive part of this dish was actually the green leaf on the upper left side…it is called the “oyster leaf” and it actually tasted like oyster!!
