Time Out says

One of the five F&B outlets at The Standard, Bangkok Mahanakhon, Ojo Bangkok has become Thailand's highest restaurant that serves elevated Mexican cuisine.

The city’s newest Mexican restaurant Ojo Bangkok (pronounced “o-ho”), set on top of high-rise landmark King Power Mahanakhon, will give you reason to  go “oh-ho!”

The first to open of the five dining and drinking outlets at The Standard, Bangkok Mahanakhon, Ojo Bangkok takes over the space previously occupied by Mahanakhon Sky Bar and now marks as Thailand's highest restaurant. Talented designer and artist Nopadon “Ou” Baholyodhin, who’s responsible for  the interiors of Italian restaurant Contento, brings life to a concept called “eye of God” (“ojo de Dios” in Spanish). A pink and gold color scheme permeates the entire space, complementing the colors of the sunset that you can witness from the sky-high spot.

The menu was put together by executive chef Francisco “Paco” Ruano, a renowned culinary figure whose own establishment, Restaurante Alcalde in Guadalajara, was named one of the 50 best restaurants in Latin America.

To Chef Paco, Ojo is a place where you can experience a “rainbow of flavors”. His goal is to present a wide spectrum of Mexican fare, beyond the ubiquitous tacos and burritos, and to serve stylish-looking dishes that guests can share while taking in gorgeous vistas of the city.

You can start off your meal with Tuna Crudo (B690), a light dish that uses black olive emulsion to flavor the fish, which comes with avocado and green chilli. You also have Mushroom Tetela (B390), where Mexican mole sauce adds flavor to triangular pockets of corn stuffed with black fungus.

While Ojo is devoted to the multifarious aspects of Mexican chef, Chef Paco believes it’s important to incorporate local ingredients to his dishes to come up with more complex flavors. Mexican Dark Chocolate Tamal (B350), for instance, is a dessert that pairs pandan ice cream with dark chocolate and betel leaves.

Ojo Bangkok also offers hearty mains, like the grilled Pescado Zarandeado (B1,100) and bone-in ribeye Carne Asada (B4,500).

The restaurant will open its doors on 8 June at The Standard, Bangkok Mahanakhon (King Power Mahanakhon), and will be serving lunch and dinner. For more information and reservations, contact 0 2085 8888.
