Hemingway's Bangkok

Post by Trongpai »

This is thankfully not related in anyway to Hemingway's in Jomtien. It used to be on Sukhumvit at Asoke but was displaced by the construction of a new hotel. Now, relocated to Sukhumvit 11. At the old location it was always packed and the new place is the same. Unfortunately the new location has less seats than the old place. The best Cuban sandwich, black bean soup and gazpacho in town.

Correction there's more tables and bar counter seats at the new digs. I missed the second floor first time. Tuesday night not so crowded.

In case you're wondering what's the side dish with the Cuban Sandwich it's Yuca con Mojo.

Big changes at Hemingway's. New menu and all my favorites are gone, Rubin, Cuban, and Empanada. No reason for me to go there now. I don't know what happen. All I was told was, new menu. I had a chicken sandwich about the same quality of what you would get at 7-11.

All up and down upper Suk (4 to 15) is pretty decimated and dark. Several restaurants that have thrived for years like Via Vie, Suk 8, and Art Box are not only closed but totally gone, vacant lots!

In Bangkok burbs it's not all doom and gloom. Even some new places that have good farang food that is being introduced to the Thai middle class. Real farang food too. Time will tell if it works out. I can't see the point of posting reviews as even in central Bangkok there's little interest in Bangkok on any of the boards.

Just in case you didn't notice, this is not the Hemingway's in Jomtien Complex. The menu has expanded and the regular items are still available. It remains one of my favorite eateries.

I'll have to give Hemingway's Jomtien another try. I was not impressed on my one visit some time ago. I looked at the menu and photos on the link below and I am not significantly inspired. I'll still give it another shot. It seems a lot more British influenced then American, not that that's a bad thing. Ernest Hemingway was an American who lived in Key West, Florida and Cuba so I would think the food would reflect that, Cuban Sandwiches and black bean soup. The bread on the sandwiches looks like Farmhouse brand!

There a lot of decent British pubs serving good food but few if any specializing in good regional American food. The Hemmingway's in Bangkok did but not now!

My favorite British bar and grill in Pattaya is The Sportsman Bar, soi 13 Beach Road.

I like a good Reuben too but have given up on finding a good one in Bangkok, Pattaya or elsewhere in Thailand. I make my own now. Sloane's corned beef, good Swiss cheese, sauerkraut, real thousand island and grill it on buttered Maison Jean Philippe rye bread. No mustard! No pickle unless it's on the side.
