We have seen a lot of restaurants in Thonglor-Ekamai with good comfort food and live music. What we haven’t seen yet is a fusion between renaissance décor (think Michael Angelo) with big dark gothic chairs and restaurant booth-style seating.
But wait, that’s not all. In a couple of weeks’ time when Wine Me Up in Seenspace 13, Thonglor officially opens, customers will see more funky and eclectic furniture put in place.
At the time of the review, Wine Me Up had their Soft Opening 2 days prior and we’re really digging the ambiance already.
From the outside, the enticing and mysterious red colour sets Wine Me Up apart from other restaurant and bar establishments. We weren’t quite sure what to expect but the collaboration between styles and genre have meshed together collectively.
The deep luscious colours used inside the bistro creates a rather intimate atmosphere, as we hurdled together and decided what to eat.
The first dish that arrived carried its aroma throughout the entire meal: Linguini with clams in white wine sauce (250 baht ++).
The red and white wines that were delivered were generously poured into big wine glasses for us to savour.
As we try not to fork into the Linguini dish, we politely sipped our wines and waited patiently for the other two dishes to arrive..
The second dish, smothered in cheese, was the pull pork ribs sandwich with potato wedges with a killer creamy mustard dip (220 baht ++).
We tried not to woof down the potato wedges, as the mustard dip was pretty addictive.
The sandwich was loaded with meat and cheese, no space was left for non-sense.
100% protein on toasted buns.
The third dish, Pesto Pasta with Scallops (280 baht ++) was simply delectable. Here, we tried not to gobble down our pasta so we put conversation between each mouthful of food.
Obviously, a restaurant with “wine” in their name serves a large selection of fine wines from Australia, France to California (reasonably priced).
The staff were well-trained, incredibly attentive and extremely friendly. Last but definitely not least, the dessert menu, which offers classics such as Banoffee Pie to mouth-watering Strawberries Cheese Wine Cake.
Wine Me Up are still finalising a few details before the Grand Opening, but we are excited to share a few thoughts with our readers. We have to say, we love the name!
In the meantime, check out their Lunch Set Menu: 499 baht ++ for a 3 course meal (starter/salad, main dish and dessert).
