Good Food &
No Fuss: Bacchus
28 September 2017
Curled up since early February in Sukhumvit’s soi 16, close to Asoke, Bacchus&Co brilliantly accomplishes its goal of enabling Bangkokians to enjoy genuine and tasty cuisine at unbeatable prices.
“Bacchus isn’t really a restaurant. It’s rather a place where you can choose a bottle of wine and drink it on the spot, with a meal, or simply take it home,” explained Luc Busin and Christophe Ferré, the establishment’s welcoming hosts.
“We wanted to recreate the atmosphere of a French bistro where you feel at home, in a very friendly atmosphere. Here, there’s no fuss, it’s all about sincerity, a warm reception, and the food. We serve simple and unpretentious French dishes, such as chicken basquaise, escalope cordon bleu, beef bourguignon, Burgundy snails, boards of charcuterie imported from France, Spain and Italy, as well as a variety of cheeses, all of which come from France, including a hot truffle Camembert. We will soon also increase our offering of Thai dishes, which already includes Khao Soi, Nam Prik Ong (pork and tomato sauce) as well as Kaeng Hang Le (pork curry), offered as a lunch set at only 79 Baht during the week.”
To stay in the bistro spirit, the menu includes mixed salads, as well as a soup and quiche of the day, sandwiches and, of course, a croque-monsieur made with bread from the Amantee bakery, the best in Bangkok. Amateurs can come taste famous Marennes-Oléron oysters or bouchot mussels every Thursday and, for early risers, Bacchus also has a Parisian breakfast at 99 Baht. The baguettes and pastries are cooked on-site, daily. Finally, the prices shown are net, in order to make sure that the enjoyment of customers continues until the bill, “that we want to be the leanest bit of the establishment,” concluded Christophe.
