Sühring

Bangkok, June 2018 Sühring (No. 4, Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants 2018, Two-Michelin Stars) is one of the most stylish restaurants in bustling Bangkok.   German chefs Thomas and Mathias Sühring, who are also twin brothers, are cooking up a menu of beautiful modern German cuisine.

Mr. King and I ordered the tasting menu (Thai Baht 3,400), which was divided into three “chapters”. The Mathias brothers’ culinary philosophy reflects three principles – “quality, seasonality and simplicity.”

Chapter 1
German sweet donut stuffed with mushroom purée

Curry wurst – inspired by German street food, ingredients imported from curry 36. We were instructed to drink the beer first, and eat the crispy potato.

We ended the dinner with Grandma’s recipe of egg nog that was a mix of condensed milk, egg yolk and liqueur.

This was certainly a culinary journey, not to be missed. Every course was thought-provoking, with impeccable presentation.

Lastly, Sühring is affiliated to Gaggan Anand of Gaggan (No. 1 on Asia’s 50 Best Restaurant List for four consecutive years) as Anand is an investor of this contemporary German restaurant.
