First impression into Burapa feels like boarding Oriental Express carriages with a lively crew back in 1940. Interior resembles a classy dark-toned traveling experience with button-back leather chairs which are really comfortable.
My table was on second floor which gave a really nice carriage dining vibe. All the staff are extremely polite and helpful in providing their service which really increase overall experience. There are so many good spot for photos too, I would say their uniqueness theme are worthy of visiting combining with impressive food quality.
Burapa menu selection are based on a journey from eastern part of Thailand into Bangkok based on local ingredients in each region. Various usage of fruit within their menu such as Durian, banana, pineapple.
Asian Seabass in loads of crispy garlic and black pepper
Aromatic, crispy and crunchy fried seabass with perfectly balanced seasoning. Kudos to the staff on removing all small bones too. If I have to pick one menu, I will definitely pick this menu.
Pink Jelly fish / Thai mustard green /Peanut brittle dressing
Jelly fish are fermented into pinkish color which gave a slightly more chewy texture. A good dish with sourness and spiciness just to kick off some appetite.
Grilled Thai-Wagyu beef tongue
Simply good and soft beef tongue texture.
Pork belly stew / Cha-muang leaf
This curry are well-known menu from Sri Trat which is Burapa parent restaurant. I love that they actually reduce sweetness from typical Chamuang curry in Thailand.
Crispy String ray / Green mango salad / Sweet shrimps
First of all, biggest dry shrimp I have ever encountered with a twist from typical salty shrimp into sweet shrimp. Sting ray texture are crisp and hard at the same time.
