Blend Bistro & Wine Baris located at the Somerset Asok Maison in Sukhumvit Soi 23. Although it is nestled quite deep into the alley, Blend Bistro & Wine Bar is very easy to notice with its relaxing outdoor seating. The restaurant is named ‘Blend’ because the menu is a mix of French and Italian cuisines.
The decor of Blend is elegant with a mix of classic French and Italian style and furnishings. The lighting is soft and comforting, putting the diners at ease when sitting at the dining table. The overall ambience is pleasant and joyful, cushioning diners in a timeless capsule of delectable food and drink.
The dinner we had was simple but unforgettable. It was a classic meal of French and Italian cuisines.
Seared American scallops, porcini risotto, green pea sauce
The aroma of this dish excited our appetite – the smell of pan-seared scallops, and the natural aroma of porcini and risotto translated into satisfactory nods while savouring the dish. The al dente risotto was unforgettable. After all, yummy risotto is not something easy to find. This dish has tattooed ‘Blend’ in my mental geographical map for risotto in Bangkok.
Fettuccine black truffle & spicy Italian sausages, with mixed mushrooms, truffle paste and parmesan cheese
This is another Italian dish. The portion was huge but we could still finish the dish effortlessly. The reason was simple – it’s yummy. Just like the risotto, this fettuccine was al dente, the black truffle did its magic on this pasta dish – aromatic and flavoursome. The use of parmesan cheese has enhanced an irresistible flavour of this dish. We especially like the right amount of sauce used in the dish.
Blanquette de Veau (Classic French dish of delicate veal ragout slowly cooked in an aromatic, rich and creamy sauce)
This classic French dish earned another thumb-up from us. As pieces of veal were slowly cooked with vegetables in the sauce, they tasted tender and juicy. The sauce was also so flavoursome that it was best to eat with a bowl of hot rice.
Warm apple tart
We love this dessert! Thus far, it is the best apple tart we have had in these couples of years. Despite selecting the right kind of apple that gives a balance of sweetness and acidity, the pastry crust is another factor influencing the mouthfeel. We especially like this one as the crust was thin and crispy. There was a pleasing layer of starch and fruitiness.
We are so looking forward to another visit for the cheese, oysters and wine selections available at Blend. We were so attracted to these menus.
