Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

This new restaurant on Soi Sukhumvit 16 pairs fine-dining Latvian fare with amazing cocktails.

Bangkok has one of the most diverse food scenes in the world. You can find practically any cuisine here, and thanks to Chef Aleksandrs Nasikailovs, it’s now even possible to have Latvian fare in the city. 

At the White House, located on Soi Sukhumvit 16, the Latvian native serves refined fare from his own country with contemporary European twists. Chef Aleksandrs first came to Thailand as a chef for Baltic Blunos, but put up his own venture soon after parting ways with Chef Martin Blunos’ establishment.

Despite the elegant food, the restaurant is actually stylized as a smart-casual place where guests can come and enjoy either beautifully prepared tasting menus or tantalizing à la carte dishes. Diners can enjoy live music while savoring their food on the first floor or opt for a more intimate ambience on the second floor. Regardless of the setting, you’re promised an amazing meal that’s enhanced by artistic presentation and crockery that are handmade by the chef himself.

The White House Experience (B4,000++) is a tasting menu that best captures the essence of Chef Aleksandrs’ cooking. Comprising over 10 courses, the menu is dependent on the ingredients of the season. On our visit, we were served Gillardeau oysters, which came with raspberry vinaigrette and yogurt pearls; hand-dived deep-sea scallops with hollandaise and Baeri sturgeon caviar; and a rack of lamb elevated with black garlic paste and green peppercorn sauce.

The meal is rounded up by homemade chocolate that come in various shapes and flavors.

For a better dining experience, pair the food with the cocktails made by Japanese mixologist Kei Sawada. He will amaze you with a selection of weird and wonderful concoctions that make use of unlikely ingredients such as wasabi and blue cheese. Don’t think twice and get the cocktail pairing option (B1,500++).
