Exposed industrial beams, dark wood, muted lighting and a down tempo soundtrack characterise the Eat Me oeuvre that has now been expanded to include a new bar and lounge area just past the front door. One flight of stairs up, the snug dining room is fronted by a well-stocked bar and flanked by an outdoor patio for diners in search of an alfresco experience; upper floors offer private rooms for those crowded weekend nights.

Owners, Australians Darren Hausler and sister Cherie, along with new business partner and executive chef American Tim Butler, have designed a collection of impressive platings that have clientele returning for more.

The impressive wine digest, with a nod to the owners’ heritages, has a concentration of top drops from Down Under and Napa Valley. Highly recommended though is ordering one of their signature cocktails like the delightful ‘Passion Fruit Caipiroska’, or the refreshing Ginger & Logan Mojito.

Keeping to the casual chic canon, the menus also serve as place mats, with the 50-odd dishes categorised into meat, seafood and vegetables, with a separate menu for all things sweet. It’s a tough choice, though the Black Chicken Salad (230 baht) is the perfect opener. A take-off on the Thai appetiser, mieng kham, the dish uses the meat of silkie – a breed of chicken so called because of its downy plumage and dark blue flesh and bones – in a combo of red papaya, toasted coconut, chilli, lime and betel leaf; the last providing a bitter peppery flavour. Grilled Tiger Prawns with Tom Yum Spiced Oil again draws inspiration from local cuisine and is a must try.

With offerings like Warm Goat Cheese Salad with a Citrus Vinaigrette and Pistachio, Rabbit Rillettes with Red Wine Onion Jam and Tasmanian Pacific Oysters on the half shell with Mango Curry Sorbet, it would be just as easy to satisfy oneself from the starter side of the menu. But there are plenty of temptations in the mains section as well. Like the Australian wagyu Tomahawk with grilled vegetables and potato chips; sitting atop platter is a massive hunk of meat attached to a rib bone and dressed only with sprigs of rosemary and cloves of roasted garlic. Any thoughts of sampling the other mains will have to wait for another day.

It is difficult to say no to the sweet offerings at Eat Me and do on not leave, without at least trying the sticky date pudding in a hot butterscotch sauce and homemade vanilla ice cream; it’s addictive.
