    Bacco in thonglor ... not far from Asoke and many other It choices nearby.
    Cheers, Rob.
    Lifes journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well-preserved body, but to skid in sideways totally worn out, shouting: holy s.h.i.t what a ride!

    We decided on tapas and paella

    But this is a good thread to keep up for people to add to it

    Thanks KR

    No worries Paul. Enjoy.

    FYI Bacco is a large restaurant with impressive displays of vino stocks around the walls and the biggest revolving wood fired oven I've seen. Food was excellent. Suk 53 from memory.
    Cheers, Rob.

    Isn't there a huge Italian right on the corner of Sukhumvit and soi 23? "Little Italy" or something. Never been in but it's been there a while.
    My only experience was in a pie making factory managing the gravy team

    Looks horrible from the outside

    And it says open 24hrs
    Any decent restaurant isn't open 24hrs

    How long has he been standing there for?

    Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.

    It's a lot nicer inside than out. No idea what the food is like.

    Casual Italian Sukhumvit

    The best pizza by the slice and lasagna I've ever had is in Pala Pizza Romana. It's run by a couple of proper greasballs too. Aside from pizza they have a huge cured meats section, full menu and deserts. I think you'd like it. You can take away the slices or sit in.

    It's right next to Dunkin donuts by the entrance to Asoke bts/ Sukhumvit mrt. Recent reviews on google. I've been there probably 3 times in my last 2 trips and it's always full. That's usually a good sign.

    There is a new food hall opened on Soi 11 across from Aloft

    It has around 10 small mom and pop type small restaurants

    I went to eat Fowlmouth
    Hot(spicy) fried chicken sandwiches but closed on Monday

    I grabbed a slice of pizza at Cantina, a walk up pizza window

    It wasn't the greatest but pretty good for Bangkok

    Was looking for casual
    Prices in the some of the Italian restaurants in the nicer hotels here are insane

    I actually decided on Tapas Vino in Pullman Hotel
    I went to book it on thier website and got a pleasant surprise of 50% the food if book direct on their website

    Didn't know Rob worked at Sukothai
    That has to be the nicest place he ever worked

    I must admit... I can't be fussy. I can't remember the last time I had a bad meal in a restaurant... probably never... I just cannot tell good from bad... it all tastes good to me... unless it's hot... 55
