Official description

Absolute Fit Food Kitchen may seem like a small office and cooking studio with a dining area that can seat not more than 14 people. But the place proved a worthy destination if you’re looking for a hearty meal that’s as delicious as it is nutritious.

Because the brand’s core business is a healthy food-delivery service, its kitchen, boasting two tables and a dining counter, welcomes walk-in guests wishing to have a talk with the chef or sample some of the food before beginning their weeklong subscription.

Absolute Fit Food Kitchen may seem like a small office and cooking studio with a dining area that can seat not more than 14 people. But the place proved a worthy destination if you're looking for a hearty meal that's as delicious as it is nutritious.

Because the brand's core business is a healthy food-delivery service, its kitchen, boasting two tables and a dining counter, welcomes walk-in guests wishing to have a talk with the chef or sample some of the food before beginning their weeklong subscription.

Culinary-wise, the kitchen serves up a mixed cuisine of Thai and Western classics, of which every single dish has been creatively crafted by the chefs as well as the research-and-development team and gone through a meticulous testing process to make sure the nutritional value, taste and appearance remain of a high standard.

Meals are designed to be nutritionally balanced, high in nutrients but low in calories. Ingredients are carefully sought and as organically and sustainably produced as possible. Only raw organic honey and coconut sugar -- no refined sugar -- are used. Butter is substituted with extra-virgin olive oil and coconut oil, and wheat is replaced with spelt flour.

Unlike the extensive collection of dishes in the delivery programme, the menu for dine-in customers is limited, with the selection changing periodically.

For those wishing to sample a variety of dishes while indulging in a complete meal at one go, there's a degustation set lunch (995 baht per person) on offer. The three-course meal, called Chef's Table menu, allows guests to try two appetisers, two main-course dishes (each item coming in a sampling portion half the size of a regular serving) and a dessert, and includes a glass of apple cider as a welcome drink and water.

The snapper turmeric with green curry quinoa risotto.

The current chef's-table set started off with a platter of three-bean quinoa salad and chicken Caesar roll. In a sizeable portion, the salad was a scrumptious unification of cooked green beans, edamame (Japanese soy beans), quinoa and dried goji berries -- all flavourfully enhanced by house-concocted honey-mustard dressing.

Intermingling perfectly with the greens was a fresh and crunchy two-bite portion of the chicken Caesar roll. It featured lean chicken meat, romaine lettuce and carrot stripes wrapped in translucent Vietnamese rice paper skin and touched up with a dollop of thick and tasty Caesar dressing.

Currently, the chef's selection of main courses was represented by green-curry quinoa risotto and grilled snapper in turmeric.

The quinoa risotto, a mixture of the pseudocereal quinoa grains and high-nutrient purple rice delicately tossed with salmon cubes, eggplant and a light touch of housemade green curry sauce, proved a creative and healthy, grease-free take on local classic fried rice.

Accompanying the low-carb grains was an aromatic, herb-coated fillet of oven-grilled snapper. The cottony white fish meat came blanketed in an orangish-yellow, turmeric and lemongrass crust on a bed of eringi mushroom. Thanks to the impeccable quality of the fish and the brilliant coating -- with a flavour profile redolent of that of hor mhok (Thai-style steamed-fish curry souffle) but without being overly flavoured -- the dish was truly remarkable. I have to frankly admit that never had I expected to find one of the tastiest fish dishes in such a health-conscious meal.

The lunch finished off beautifully with a helping of quinoa-porridge dessert. It presented cubes of ripe mango and dragon fruit stacked up on a bed of soft quinoa with morsels of roasted almond, toasted coconut and dried goji berries. Served on the side was a rich mixture of soybean milk permeated with raisin to lend a mild sweet touch and texture. While fresh strawberry slices and raspberry purée added a fruity zest to the milky fare.

Diners with limited time may settle for a dish or two from an à la carte menu. It provides a small selection of à la carte salads (280 baht each), low-calorie main entrées (350 baht each) and desserts (190 baht each). Current options are the likes of spicy herbal salmon salad, teriyaki salmon with brown rice, kraprao chicken with Jasberry rice, quinoa paella and energy-boosting pastry balls.

The pan-fried dory with sweet-and-sour passion fruit sauce.

Starting in May, the brand will add a less pricey line-up of meals called the Happy Healthy Box to both the delivery line and dine-in kitchen. The new line boasts the same dietary concept as the regular premium counterpart but without the "superfood" ingredients.

So for the walk-in guests, there will be a selection of dishes from the new line to be sampled. A degustation set menu will cost around 500-600 baht and may include the likes of Greek salad with feta cheese and ginger-infused dressing, pan-fried dory fish fillets with sweet-and-sour passion-fruit sauce served in a lemon-skin cup, and aubergine, prawn and minced pork salad with Thai-style dressing.

Due to limited seating, reservations are a must.

Cosy atmosphere at the chef's table.
