Arun Residence @ Bangkok


An atmospheric restaurant with a lovely view of Bangkok's Chao Phraya.


Sip some cocktails at the terrace & watch the sun slowly set before dinner.


Everything's reasonably well-prepared here, from Pad Thai with chunks of chicken ...


... to river prawns, cooked in a mildly spicy-herbal essence ...


... to a humble-looking fried rice that should satiate carb cravings ...


... to some cod fish with fresh red-&-green veggies & a pesto-like sauce ...


... to more prawns, fried in a sinfully buttery style ...


... to mushrooms that were mostly walloped before I could photograph them ...


... to satay-like fish cakes, juicy & fresh-tasting ...


... to the ubiquitous spring rolls, crunchy as can be ...


... to everyone's favorite finisher, mango with sticky rice.


Arunsawas (Mekhong Thai whiskey, lychee syrup, Sprite).


Sala Sensation (Malibu, pineapple juice, lemon juice, syrup).


Arun Residence,
Bangkok, Thailand.

    1. Missyblurkit: oooh, that could be a fun mixologist's experiment! i wonder if there might be some local fruits or ingredients that could go well in a cocktail with made-in-malaysia whiskey :D
