Eat Me is an unusual name and Eat Me is an unusual restaurant. Mostly upstairs with small balconies for smokers, although sometimes with live jazz emanating from one of the balconies.
Eat Me is a very popular evening dining location for the upmarket gay and art communities whether they be locals, farangs or tourists.
The food mixes traditional Thai and European, sometimes each with a touch of the other without it being classified as that awful 'fusion' word.
A Zucchini Carpaccio is with goat cheese, pine nuts and raspberry vinegar. The Red Onion Tarte Tatin is with brie and red wine glaze.
There are a variety of exotic salads; Rocket, Pear & Parmesan with black truffle dressing, Witloff, Cherry and Mozzarella with asparagus and preserved lemon and an incredible Heirloom Tomato Salad with olive oil ice cream, mint, basil and parmesan.
Tasmanian Pacific Oysters can be Fresh with champagne granita and red wine mignonette or Fried with a lime and chilli aioli. A Thai touch is the Grilled Tiger Prawns in their tom yum spiced olive oil.
A Black Chicken Salad is with red papaya, toasted coconut, chilli, lime and betel leaf. The Steak Tartare uses Australian wagyu and is served with fried quails eggs.
The mains go very international with Lemongrass Chicken with green mango salad, Indian Kedgeree Rice with smoked cod, smoked ocean trout, tiger prawns and quails eggs. From Morocco a Tagine of Beef Cheeks with saffron and dates or a Lamb Rack with Moroccan spices.
Many steak options, from grain-fed Tenderloin with blue cheese to Australian Wagyu, even a Wagyu Tomahawk @ Baht 4,200, enough for 3-4 persons.
The pasta and vegetarian dishes are just as exotic as are the desserts; Australian favourites of Pavlova and Sticky Date Pudding, Moroccan spiced M'Hannacha Pastry with chestnuts and rosemary ice cream.
A taste treat of international cuisines.
