Thailand Day 14
Bei Otto - German Dinner in Bangkok
"Bei Otto", which translates from german to "At Otto's", is apparently one of two really great german restaurants in Bangkok. Chef Otto started in Bangkok in 1981 at the Singha Bierhaus until he opened his own restaurant with a delicatessen store right next to it. He also runs his own butcher shop to make his own german sausages.
The sauerkraut is imported from germany and the mashed potatoes taste just like 'at home'.
The atmosphere inside is also quite authentic resembling a german hunter's lodge. The clientel was, not surprisingly, mainly german, but we did spot a few local thais and also japanese tourists.
This was a real treat. I'll go back there for more, also to do some grocery shopping next door in the deli store.
