On the recommendation of some friends we sought out Uncle John's in Sathorn District in Bangkok. We'd heard that you could eat top quality food at a very cheap price
Armed with an address and map we set out from the hotel. After an hour and a half of searching we finally found it, tucked away down a side-street not far from the local market. It was a sight for sore eyes, not only because we'd finally found it but also for the promise it held
Uncle John's is run by a chef who learnt his trade at the Sukhothai Hotel, one of the top 5 star hotels in Bangkok. He quit his job at the hotel and opened up a restaurant with the ultimate open kitchen in that it's outside on the street!
The menu reads like any top restaurant with a range of choices from French, Italian and Indian to Local Thai dishes. We ordered Pork Fillet Mignon and Beef Tenderloin followed by Mango Crepe Suzette, all washed down with a bottle of Malbec. It was delicious!
