Ying and I were invited by the Tourism Authority of Thailand to attend the press conference and celebratory dinner for Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants 2016 which will be held in 2016 in Bangkok on February 29. I was pretty excited to go, and I decided to make a video vlog about the event, and the following dinner located at Paste at Gaysorn Shopping Centre.
The event took place on October 20th, 2015 at Bangkok’s high end Gaysorn Shopping Centre, and Ying and I arrived at 5 pm and after getting registered and checked in, we met up with Chef Jason Bailey and Chef Khun Bee, good friends of ours, and the owners and chefs of Paste Restaurant, which is an excellent modern and progressive Thai restaurant in Bangkok. I had been to their original location a number of times at Thong Lo, but this was my first time to visit their new location at Gaysorn. The kitchen was amazing, really a dream kitchen with quite an impressive display of appliances.
Ok, so we first sat through the official press release of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants 2016, where a few officials spoke. Mostly it was to officially announce Bangkok as the host city along with the Tourism Authority of Thailand.
After the program, we then had dinner at Paste Restaurant, and we were served a number of first starting entrees. My favorite was the very first Hokkaido scallop topped with Canadian sea urchin. I could have eaten that all day long, it was amazing. Then we had the main courses which were all shared between our table. So it was a little challenging to film a video at a communal table, but we did our best. All the dishes at Paste were good, but my favorite dish of the evening was probably the braised beef rib, and I also really enjoyed the seabass (a dish I had previously eaten at Paste before), and also the seng wa, a shrimp salad with kaffir lime juice instead of regular lime juice.
Paste has been one of my favorite high end modern Thai restaurants in Bangkok for a long time, and they continue to make excellent Thai cuisine and bring it to the next level.
It was a good event. Thank you to the Tourism Authority of Thailand, the World’s 50 Best Restaurants (and Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants), and Paste at Gaysorn.
