Whether it’s a nascent trend towards less pretentious eating environments or down to the astronomical rents charged for commercial premises or simply an attempt to make better use of under-employed space, it’s getting increasingly common for home-owners to open their doors and welcome in paying diners to sample the fare from their kitchens.
This week I’d like to introduce you to the Hidden Terrace, a humble eatery tucked away in a small sub-soi off Rama IX Road. Not only does this 40-seater occupy the whole ground floor of a family residence, it is also operated mainly by the members of that same clan. Dad doubles as the coffee-roaster, mum’s the cashier and the son’s the chef, while the matter of expediting food to tables is attended to by the chef’s siblings (and a few extra helpers).
The Hidden Terrace serves up home-style, East-meets-West cuisine dreamed up by chef Art, a Seattle Culinary Academy graduate, Angelini alumni and part-time TV cookery demonstrator.
