Chief reason to visit: Chef Tim Butler’s gastronomic ingenuity is the key draw to Eat Me. The New York-born cook combines diverse ingredients to create bold flavour blends in a laidback art gallery setting.
Typical dishes: Alaskan scallops with avocado, yuzu and pancetta is one of the most talked about dishes. For sharers, there are large options including Australian wagyu tomahawk that feeds three to four people, and those seeking something different for dessert can try the homemade ice cream and sorbet in varieties such as chestnut rosemary and blueberry mangosteen.
What’s the dining space like? Tucked down a small soi (narrow Thai lane), the double-storied former house has multiple eating areas. There’s a cosy bar on the bottom floor and an upstairs balcony surrounded by greenery.
What’s the vibe? A laidback atmosphere appealing to multiple crowds: those who want to party, those who want to chill and listen to music over a few cocktails and those who want a romantic date night dinner for two.
What else? Don’t forget to ask the waiter about the Eat Me Weekend Cupcake.
