Italics Bangkok Launches New Gourmet Italian Menu, Unveils Signature Dish and Secret Weapon: Pumpkin & Ricotta Pizza
Italics Bangkok has unveiled a new gourmet menu that contains the only reason you need to visit the recently opened purveyor of ‘Innovative Italian’ cuisine: Pumpkin & Ricotta Pizza with Sundried Tomatoes and Red Onion, cooked in Italics’ authentic Eucaluptus wood oven. As healthy as it is delicious, this signature Italics pizza is already winning a loyal following of diners who can’t do without the combination of fresh pizza dough from an ancient recipe tossed by our chef live at your table, with the antioxidant-rich buttery sweet orange pumpkin and lycopene-packed sundried tomatoes offset by the sharp tang of perfect ricotta and the caramelised red onion’s soft sweetness.
There are other reasons to become part of Bangkok’s small but growing society of diners who have discovered Italics since the launch of this streamlined, pared back, intelligently put together and creatively inspired gourmet menu.
They include Scallops & Truffle Tartare, Buratta Caprese salad, Duck Ravioli, and signature pizzas including Seafood with basil pesto, Parma Ham and mascapone with wild rocket and truffle oil, Air Dried Beef with Rocket, Lemon and Parmesan and Four Cheese.
Lamb of God: Divine, sweet and tender are among the adjectives diners have summoned after selecting the Shoulder of Lamb from the new Gourmet Menu at Italics.
Main dishes, each with a suggested wine pairing, include Slow Cooked Lamb Shoulder with Roasted Vegetables (3-4 diners to share) with a Castello De Fonterotuli from Tuscany, Seared Hokkaido Scallops with Pork Belly, Sweet Corn and Basil Sauce, with a Colutta Pino Grigio, and Beef Butcher Cut with Wedge Potatoes, Roast Bone Marrow and Herb Butter, served with a Le Volte from Tuscany.
The buzz-worthy restaurant and deli breathes fresh life into much-loved dishes and new creations using the best of locally sourced ingredients and with quality as a watchword for chef Kip.
Italics Bangkok boasts a prime location in Bangkok’s new ‘eat street’ Soi Ruamrudee, with the added benefit of sharing an address with the new Balvenie Bar, a cigar and whisky bar and club with the best single malt selection in South East Asia and an impressive array of quality cigars in its humidor, making it a tempting after-dinner nightcap stop or the place for a quick sharpener before a hearty Italics feast.
“Warm and welcoming staffs with great wood-fired pizza. It is not easy to find great western food in Bangkok but Italics has it all. Great value for money, attentive staff in a modern and fresh dining room. I will be back again and again,” said allybingally of Hong Kong in a Trip Advisor review this week.
Raw and fresh: Scallops tartare, a fresh and natural treat marrying sweet succulent scallops with the finest truffles this side of the Italian alps.
ladymerryberry writes: “5 stars. Even better than before. This was our second visit to’hidden gem’ with new Kenyan Chef Kip creating a gourmet menu with fewer bells and whistles, but quality at every turn. “The Burrata Caprese has beauty to boot, with the brightness of cherry tomatoes (both red and yellow) adding a fiesta-like feel” while the Beef Butcher Cut was ‘a fine choice’.
AKARYN Hotel Group Founder and Managing Director Anchalika Kijkanakorn, which counts Italics in AHG’s luxury boutique hospitality portfolio, said the reaction to the new menu had been very positive and most heartening.
“We are still innovative Italian, but we also went back to basics a bit, keeping it simple and getting it right. It is gratifying that people really appreciate the new menu direction. If you haven’t tried Italics yet, now is the time to discover one of your new favourite restaurants in Bangkok.”
Italics takes its coffee as seriously as its food. From espressos to exotic gourmet blends, its coffee menu echoes the food menu: it has been built on a locally sourced, high quality ethos.
