WINE ME DINE ME
THE SET-UP: The location is a bit weird as the restaurant is on the top of an office building but the "angels" (aka the receptionists) on the ground floor will look after you. Once upstairs, past the floors which presumably see employees waltzing around in fuzzy slippers all day, you'll feel just as comfortable at Cloud 47. The venue offers a vast open-air dining area that is partially roofed and a smaller two-storey indoor area with a wine cellar. Playing off its altitude and cloud theme, the decor is dominated with white but isn't lifeless as some LEDs light things up with their changing colours, creating a mesmerising mood. You're likely to meet salary people from nearby offices looking to relax after work.
Practice your dexterity with Taco spicy pork with yoghurt sauce (B160++) as you scoop up larb moo with the small taco chips (make sure to have your back to the wind or some of the spicy salad may go into your face instead of your mouth). A shot glass of yoghurt with cucumber bits accompanies the dish in case you have a low tolerance for spiciness. River prawns and large mussels poke out of a coconut shell filled with Tom yum goong (B150). The dish is served in two portions; in the said coconut and in a bowl, which is a lot of soup for this price. For something that everyone in your gang (except the vegetarians) can gang up on, try the mighty Pork knuckle with sauerkraut and mashed potato (B580). Eat the German dish like a Thai does by dipping the juicy meat into seafood dip for a sharp acidic touch. After strong-flavoured dishes, Silk as Elyx (B280) is a good cocktail for refreshing your palate with its light and clean taste of vodka and a hint of lemon.
