Escaped from Bangkok for the weekend to Jomtien. The highlight of our stay was a splendid meal in Amadeus, where Gig and Alberto made us feel we were back in Italy with the quality of the food and the rich, deep Montepulciano d'Abruzzo that went with it!
We were two couples so were able to indulge in a selection of 6 or 7 starters that included a heart of parma ham, a delicate smoked pork, an exquisite octopus salad and a glorious timino(?) young goat's cheese: each to be savoured for its contrasting taste. In addition we had one of Aberto's creative combinations: fresh tuna and mango!
A pause to swill around, smell, sip and comment on the colour of our wine between courses, and then the most subtle 24 hour marinaded and slow-cooked lamb shanks, for two of us and an equally tender duck as well as a rib-eye steak that was declared to be the best my partner had tasted in Thailand.
Unfortunately, we did not leave enough room for the desserts, but did have 3 more small but delicious Italian cheeses to accompany the last of our wine.
Alberto is on hand to provide the background to the dishes and entertain with Italian and other anecdotes! To my surprise, given the quality of our meal, he also said that Amadeus catered for more everyday dishes and that you could have a piazza and a glass of house wine for under 500 baht,
Maybe, this review sounds a bit over the top, but we have been to many, many Italian restaurants in Bangkok and Amadeus has the best combination of personal service, quality food and excellent wines, in our view.
