Following the triumph of its first Bangkok restaurant, Osha — the San Francisco-born Thai eatery — is set to unveil a more casual sister restaurant at Asiatique. Time Out takes an exclusive first look.
We all know how fancy Osha on Wittayu Road is: lavish marble, gilded decoration, silk cushions and avant-garde lighting. So when we heard it was branching out to the touristy Asiatique, we couldn’t quite imagine how they would reinterpret the ambience to fit the riverside bazaar’s laid-back vibe.
But Osha at Asiatique is simply telling another story. Set in a refurbished warehouse, the dining room was dressed up in an uber-popular industrial loft theme with a touch of elaborate Thai décor, providing a more casual ambiance so you don’t feel bad wearing shorts and flip-flops. The kitchen is headed by award-winning chef, Purida Theerapong, so do expect uncom-promising tastes of old-school Thai recipes infused with
a modern twist.
The menu covers old favorites such as plaa muu (spicy Thai eggplant salad with pork, B190), crispy egg Thai crepe (stuffed crispy Thai crepe, grated coconuts and shrimps, B190), nam prik kai kem (blanched fresh shrimp seasoning with chili and salted egg, complemented with local veggies) and Osha crab toffee (blue swimming crab and shrimp wrapped in tofu sheet). Thai premium rum, Mekong, is the basis for a creative list of cocktails, with one highlight being the ‘Thai Sabai’ (Mekong, lime, syrup, sweet basil, soda, B355)
