For no particular reason in need, Sundays in Bangkok have become a special celebration, either every week or once a month, when wine and food aficionados head for their favourite Sunday Champagne brunch. Unwind, chill and indulge, as your well-deserved day off has just begun. mylifestylenews writes.
The to-go-to Anantara Siam Bangkok Sunday Champagne brunch is held in the legendary Parichart Court. Back in the 1970s, when the hotel was undergoing construction, the American architect tasked with designing and building the hotel, assigned local landscaper Sittiporn Dhonavanik to design a lush and verdant courtyard; a respite for those wishing to escape the heat of the capital, complete with koi ponds and a plethora of tropical flora and fauna.
The Sunday Brunch is based in one wing around the elegant Parichart Court, with a delightful koi pond and bridges to meander around this large courtyard, lush foliage tumbling down from hotel balconies, creating a calm and peaceful ambience that will have you transported to another paradise of lush oasis. The koi pond has always been a popular spot, to hang out with friends in any occasion during the opening hours. Listen to the sounds of water cascading over huge rive boulders, which were transported from the infamous River Kwai, in Kanchanaburi province, while watching the resident koi carp swimming aimlessly, as they have done for the last four decades.
Beside having the "tropical" live band performing the light and easy music in the middle of the lush courtyard ‘island’, it also afforded us wonderful attention from the front of house team, with our delightful host, Khun Mameaw keeping a close eye on us and ensuring our refreshments were also topped up without having to ask and she could not do enough for us. Max, the floor supervisor, also does a fantastic job and empty plates just seemed to disappear magically, as well as our glasses being topped up even it was still half full.
They have always been able to display a lavish spread and here to please, inevitably, with a free flow of champagne and wine together with other beverages to enjoy with it. After much deliberation, we settled at the Anantara Siam Bangkok courtyard bubbly brunch.
We grazed on duck pancakes, Thai salads, pork dishes, a large array of seafood and then some, but the hit for us was able to order the crafted Restaurant Signature a-la-carte dishes which is part of the Sunday Brunch bonus that were almost fine dining in presentation and stunning in execution.
Our hit list:
There is nothing we could fault and found the selection to be as wide-ranging as anyone could hope for, plus quality was a definite focus, so there were no hit and miss courses, so to speak, as all food was cooked to perfection and packed with flavour and you knew that quality of ingredients was at the core of the standard. It is such great value and such a high quality, so kudos to the culinary team for being able to make this brunch so successful from a food perspective.
Wiling away the hours on a Sunday is “classically” easy if you book a seat at the Anantara Siam Bangkok for their superb Champagne Brunch, as this is the only pleasurable way to make Sunday your highlight of the week! A bubbly indulgence feast, Sundays can’t get any better.
