I recently visited Bangkok with a few of my friends and after a week of delicious local cuisine, we had a hankering for a taste of home. On a recommendation from a newly met friend, we decided to try the Little Beast and were not disappointed in the slightest.
Smack in the center of the busy Thonglor section of Bangkok, the Little Beast is in a prime location near many hangout bars and a few of the busiest clubs in Bangkok. The atmosphere is lively and the owners (we met both) are obviously very dedicated to the restaurant they have created. The cuisine is an American-European fusion that has been perfected by a chef who trained at the Culinary Institute of America. The dishes are served tapas style and come out of the kitchen as soon as they are ready. We started with the tuna tartar, the artichoke & spinach dip, the asparagus salad, and a complimentary plate of nuts & banana chips. While seemingly unadventurous, the tuna tartar is palatable (I don’t like any fish in general so this is a big compliment coming from me) and the artichoke dip beats any other I’ve tried apart from my sister’s. Lastly, we shared the lamb meatballs (delicious) and a steak fillet that was as good if not better than any I have had in the states. 5 out of 5 stars for quality and taste of food.
As for the alcohol selection, I cannot offer any comments on the homemade cocktails, but the selection is phenomenal in terms of hard alcohol. In terms of beer, you can never go wrong with a Singha in Thailand. We also had a nice conversation with one of the owners who insinuated that they might be working through a deal with some Napa wineries to bring in a larger selection of good wine. After dinning hours, the bottom floor of the restaurant turns into a nice bar/hangout with a friendly and warm vibe. We stuck around for a few more Singhas and a few shots of absinthe (it was our last night in Bangkok) and enjoyed a few conversations with some local patrons.
Start your night at the Little Beast, recover from your food coma with some drinks at the bar downstairs, and then head out into the fantastic Bangkok nightlife.
