16 Dec 2013 : The matter of dining on steaks in Bangkok tends to be contentious, with folks who know a thing or two about beef, notably Americans, tending to save their cravings until they get home. They just give up on their quest to find product at the right price in BKK, rebuffed by rates more reflective of caviar.
16 Dec 2013 : Bangkok was different in February 1970, back when Dusit Thani first opened her doors onto the junction of Silom and Rama IV. Beer was ten baht, gas one baht a litre, a good hotel room eight dollars. Siam Centre was a copse of trees by a dusty roundabout. An original print ad for the hotel boasted of 'a wide choice of sophisticated supper clubs, Continental and Siamese restaurants, coffee shops and cocktail lounges.' The photo shows the building looking much as it does today, minus the towering downtown skyscrapers, which is precisely the appeal of this grand dame of Bangkok hospitality.
16 Dec 2013 : Setting and location do not come better than this. Nor, for that matter, does authentic Thai cuisine.

15 Dec 2013 : Many people share the feeling that if a dish contains wine it will be especially delicious. They relish sauces that include red or white wine among the ingredients. The wine makes the dish special, they feel, the more so if the chef appears and displays a bottle of some choice vintage that went into the sauce, and as the fragrance of wine comes wafting from the kitchen they dream of the delicacy of the dish that will soon be set in front of them.

13 Dec 2013 : THE SET-UP
13 Dec 2013 : 'Judging from these many delicious dishes we've tried tonight, everything on the menu must be no less than perfect," my discriminating dining partner said halfway through our dinner at Ku De Ta's Signature Dining Room.
