The newly open Galleria Milano, Italian Restaurant situated in the heart of Bangkok, is a little piece (literally) of Italy. Whenever you are in Bangkok, on a business trip or on a holiday, craving for a real Italian dinner… then Galleria Milano is the restaurant you are looking for.
The décor of the restaurant is clearly inspired by Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, and who has been in Milano will understand what we mean. The ‘real’ Galleria Vittorio Emanuele in Milano, Italy, is not just a place, it is a concept, a meeting point for the locals, one of the high class shopping areas in Milano, and the place where some of the most famous and traditional restaurants and bars can be found. It is the place tourists visit first when in Milano, just next to the Duomo, and a few steps from the ‘infamous’ Via Montenapoleone. And this fabulous must-visit place in Milano has been the inspiration for Galleria Milano Restaurant in Bangkok.
But a restaurant should not be judged only by its design but rather by the quality and the selection of the menu, and Galleria Milano in Bangkok, under the direction of Chef Armando, offers one of the best Italian menus in Bangkok when it comes to original Italian food.
Here you will find all the original recipes of the (many) traditional Italian pasta dishes. If you cannot find what you are looking for on the menu, then just talk to Armando and he will help. The same applies if you do not know what to choose from the menu and you like to be guided and advised (there is always a special dish which is not on the menu). Again, just ask Armando.
When we visited the restaurant Armando suggested we try his ‘burrata with lobster’. A very unusual combination, but we accepted the challenge. It was one of the most tasty and delicate dishes ever, and we would have never tried it without his suggestion. If you are a meat lover you will not be disappointed by the meats selection, always cooked according to the traditional Italian recipes.
The desserts are all home made, and in our opinion they deserve a special mention. Armando’s tiramisu and the ‘cassata siciliana’ have to be tried to understand what a real Italian dessert tastes like. And probably you will ask for more…
The wines. Very important. At Galleria Milano you can find a very complete wine list, some wines are imported exclusively for this restaurant. From the most affordable to the most unique (and more expensive of course) Italian wines. Also in this case, if you are not very experienced or if you want to try something new, just ask for advice on the most appropriate wines to pair with your dishes.
The restaurant opened in May 2015. All the most traditional dishes of the Italian (and Milanese) cuisine are in the menu, and when not on the menu, always available upon request.
The ingredients are of course original and come directly from Italy. Also in this case, it is always a good idea to ask which are the ‘new entries’ because Galleria might have some pleasant and original dishes ‘just flown in’.
