Drinking Tea Eating Rice at Conrad



Angie Thien for "Where in Dining"
May 14, 2012

Tucked away in the Conrad Bangkok, amongst a bustling business plaza of suits and cell phones, Eating Tea Drinking Rice—or DTER for snaz—is almost purposely secretive. That’s why we’re telling you to get it on your radar, now.

The best seats at this traditional Japanese restaurant are either in the private rooms or a long 'chef's table' that stands before a black pebbled wall. Although it's been around for a while, DTER manages to stay in style by sticking to the basics—natural decor and no-nonsense good food. That's not to say that it doesn't experiment, special menus prepared by the native Japanese chef as well as guest chefs from all over the world are presented monthly. It's also good to note that DTER serves an all-you-can-eat Japanese buffet on weekends.

The al a carte menu at Drinking Tea Eating Rice is concise, specially edited to include ingredients that pack a punch: Matsuzaka Beef, Live Boston Lobster and fresh Maguro Toro (high grade tuna.) Don't be intimated though, as most traditional favourites are also on board, as well as surprising 'designer sushi and hand rolls' all averaging around THB 350++.

Rice and noodles also play a big part on the menu, and can become essential for busy lunch hours. A large selection includes everything from indulgent Kobe Beef (THB 1,700++) to rustic cold buckwheat Zaru Soba at (THB 230++.)

Want something special? Try the Matsuzaka Beef, DTER serves it in several different ways but to get the most out of the prized meat we suggest the Matsuzaka Teppan (THB 4,200++) served with garlic butter, rice and miso soup. The chef explains that only female cows are used to make Matsuzaka beef, being born and bred in day-spa like environment. The cows are fed the highest-grade food, receive massages in the evening and drink beer to stimulate their appetite.

Speaking of beer... You should end your meal with one of the Japanese beers, if not a few shots from DTER's Sake selection which include rare flavours from Japan's various regions.  

Kanpai.
