Palsaik

Palsaik (팔색 삼겹살)  is a famous Korean cuisine with three branches in Seoul and outlets in the US, Japan, Australia, China, Taiwan, Malaysia and the Philippines. With a recently opened branch in Thailand in 2nd floor of Siam center.

Famous for 8 colorful different flavors. I started with their signature set with pork belly that is marinated for 12 to 36 hours in eight different sauces – gingseng, red wine, pine leaves, garlic, herbs, curry, miso and gochujang.

Similar to some Korean places, staff took care of grilling and keeping pan clean using Radish which is an amazing idea. The thing about Thai people is that we are not used to have stranger cooking while we are eating in front of us and it could be awkward sometimes. Not a big deal though, still an amazing experience to leave it to the expert.

Pork belly are cooked very well with firm and fragrant texture. Different flavor offered a variety of enjoyable choice to choose from and side vegetables are surprisingly fresh.

Cheesy fried rice to complete the meal. The rice are not too dry or soggy and well-balance flavored.

Botejyu

As Bangkok weather progress to be hot on a sunny day as usual. My cravings for Kansai food with Teppan(Pan) skills are increasing which is a good opportunity to try out Botejyu located in Nihonmachi around Prom Phong area.

Immerse with a compact history of Botejyu to crank up some appetite.

Mixed Yakisoba with extra scallops topping – Well-balanced portion of sauce and Soba. A little crispy pork with fresh shrimp and squid. Scallops are a little too tiny though.

Ultimate Pork Okonomiyaki – A mixed of variety of pork. Satisfying texture with well executed seasoning.

Jumbo Takoyaki Sauce & Mayonaise – A jumbo size Takoyaki as claimed. Texture are fluffy and satisfying with generous amount of fresh Tako inside.

Kensaku

Bangkok consists of insane amount of Japanese restaurant with different range of cuisine type and price ranges from reasonable to luxurious. Kensaku is well-presented for unique choice of seafood. Located in residence part of Aree area.

The ambiance are quite comforting and not too formal for a Japanese cuisine.

Three kinds of Sashimi – Well-decorated presentation with fresh and balance Sashimi size
Tendon – One of the most impressive Tempura shrimp texture in Bangkok
Una Don – One of the most recommended menu (Osusume) of this place. The texture of Unagi are just insanely good with homemade sauce and grilling technique.
