Ekkamai is located just past Thonglor on the main stretch of Sukhumvit road. It’s not as concentrated with dining and drinking venues, but there are several gems hidden in this area. The best thing about these establishments is their originality, which is something that seems to get lost through franchising. Here in Ekkamai you can enjoy the wonderful aspects of independently run businesses that are free from the corporate bind that kills creativity by simply reproducing too much of the same thing.
We’ve hand-picked some awesome, one-of-a-kind spots for you to enjoy a nice meal or drinks with friends such as Hot Rod, designed by the illustrious Ashley Sutton whose left his fingerprints all over Bangkok. Hot Rod serves affordable Thai food in tapas style that’s great for sharing so make sure you go there in a group. For a more intimate and romantic setting for two, the restaurant’s name says it all – In The Mood For Love offers the best of Japanese cuisine in a Shanghai-styled interior that seems to have come straight out of the Wong Kar-Wai movie.
