Tapas at El Chiringuito in Bangkok’s Chinatown – Quick Review
You may expect Chinese food when it comes to Bangkok’s Chinatown, Yaowarat. There is indeed plenty of it, but a little Spanish bar and restaurant serve some authentic Spanish tapas in this neighborhood too!
Remembering a previous pleasing visit, I headed there for drinks and dinner after work with a few friends.
So basically we ordered all their tapas on the menu, minus the tortilla that ran out already. But first, the drinks. A big glass of refreshing Sangria for 130baht is a good deal and we obviously had a few.
The first tapas that came were the croquetas. Creamy and smoky pureed potatoes breaded and fried. A killing!
Next came these two big well-seasoned meatballs that totally outweighed that slice of bread.
After came these empanadillas, basically a kind of dumpling that was filled with tomato, onions and bell peppers.
The patatas bravas came in a big portion covered of tasty aioli. Great Choice.
The tostas de pistos was topped with the same vegetarian filling as the empanadillas. I prefer it this way, on a toast.
The pizza took longer to come than the rest of the tapas but was worth the wait. Very light and crispy, nothing heavy nor greasy, perfect to continue drinking.
Despite no tortilla, I had it on my previous visit and can tell you it was great, as all the tapas tried at El Chiringuito.
El Chiringuito is located on soi nana in Chinatown, not in the redlight district named the same on Sukhumvit road. This hipster street has a handful of restaurants and bars making it perfect for a little pub crawl.
