Thai fine dining that doesn’t punish your wallet.
80/20 is catching the tail end of rainy season with a new monsoon tasting menu. Highlighting the lush and fleeting bounty of the season, husband-and-wife team Napol “Joe” Jantraget and Saki Hoshino showcase local herbs and vegetables geared to boost your immune system across 10 courses (B3,000). Feast on lobster crudo with sea grapes topped with a sour granita, gaeng som made with local seashells and lots of earthy herbs, and the show-stopping “Pear and Mung Bean Miso,” a poached pear with miso caramel ice cream and a mung bean tuile. Opt for the wine pairing for an additional B1,800.
Don’t want to splash out on a 10-course feast? The restaurant is also offering a three-course set lunch every Fri-Sun for B1,499/person (from 11am-1pm). Right now, you’ll get an appetizer of tiger prawn ceviche with jicama and a seaweed cracker, a main course (served sharing style) of gaeng liang with stir-fried butternut squash and basil or smoked river fish with banana blossom and mango vinaigrette, and one of Hoshino’s clever desserts. The menu will change regularly, so check back often for the latest.
