A hip tempura restaurant hidden within Ekkamai 21
Chatphon ”Mo” Thavornvanit, the head chef behind smoked-game restaurant Wild & Company and founder of famous sausage brand Munchies BKK, brings to Ekkamai one of the best tempura joints in town.
Located on the ground floor of Baan Ekkamai (once a hip community mall), BATT provides outdoor dining on rustic mismatched furniture such as beach chairs, paint tanks and abandoned coffee shop chairs—the quirky set-up may BATT Tempura appear like a garage sale at first glance. An illuminated neon sign evokes a cool Americandiner feel, while the open kitchen is decked with hip street-fashion accessories.
Naming the parlor after the indispensable elements for making great tempura—batter and temperature—Chatpon (whose portfolio also includes culinary training at Dusit Thani College and Okura Prestige’s Yamazato) serves a selection of made-to-order tempura rice bowls that feature fresh, hearty ingredients covered in crusty, feather-light, deep-fried batter. Opt for Dragon Ball (B250), a bowl that comes with toppings like shrimp, boiled eggs, pumpkin and asparagus, and Anago (B350) which is served with a long piece of battered saltwater eel. BATT also offers an omakase experience (B450) that highlights seasonal premium ingredients. Each rice bowl is enhanced with BATT’s rich and savory signature tempura sauce.
Sugar Ray cocktail bar upstairs and WWA café next door offer support in terms of beverage options.
