So the group stages of FIFA World Cup are almost over and in the end it appears there will be not too many surprises in the teams qualifying, nor any of the big teams exiting the tournament early ... Although Argentina and Spain cut it a little fine! So on Saturday we begin the round of 16, with no doubt lots of excitement, some periods of extra time and the dreaded penalty shoot outs (well, dreaded if you are English anyway!) We already know four of the eight ties that consi
For the Italian brewery Baladin, beer is passion. With an intense love for taste and using it as a form of expression, through their recipes they produce craft beers that are unique and full of flavour. One such example of this is Baladin's "Open Rock n Roll" beer ... A beer strong in hops The use of hops is certainly very old in the history of beer production. The hop plant grows in most of Europe, so it is easy to imagine that it was largely used by the very first beer brew
As we enter week 2 of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, the pace is beginning to pick up. Some of the top teams who maybe didn't do as well as expected in their first games (Germany, Brazil, Argentina etc.), up the tempo to try and catch up on lost ground, whilst the teams that made a solid start (Russia, Belgium, England etc.) attempt to build on their good first games and cement their place in the knockout stages. Blend Bistro will continue to show games that take place during our n
Available right now, but for a limited time only is our new menu special, Boeuf aux Carottes. Made using certified hormone free premium Australian beef cheek, sourced from the award winning Darling Downs Ranch in Queensland, Boeuf aux Carottes is a classic french dish of slowly braised tender beef and carrots in a red wine sauce, served with potato gratin. It is true home-style French cooking and whatever your nationality, food just like your grandmother used to make!
... That we are putting onto our a la carte menu. Free Range Roasted Whole Baby Chicken It is a free-range, naturally fed, antibiotic and hormone free imported whole baby chicken. We roast it until it is golden and juicy, then serve it with sautéed potatoes and sautéed mushrooms. And at only 580 baht, it's great value too, so why not try it soon!
As we previously mentioned, Blend Bistro will be showing live, FIFA 2018 World Cup games that take place during our regular opening hours. Most games kick off at 19:00 or 22:00 local Bangkok time (But please note the different kick off times on Saturday 16th June), so we will be able to show the majority of the matches, but unfortunately cannot show games that kick off at 1:00am local times due to our local licensing restrictions. (Sorry about that England fans!) Week 1 has s
With its iconic blue bottle Bombay Sapphire Gin is easily one of the world’s most recognised spirits and can be found in bars across the world (including Blend Bistro of course!). But did you know of Bombay Sapphire's origins and that it is based on one of the earliest recorded recipes for a premium quality London Dry gin. Bombay Sapphire’s story begins with a gentleman called Thomas Dakin in 1761. At the age of 24 Dakin purchased a site with potential for distilling on Bridg
That classic of all Italian cheeses, Gorgonzola, dates back as far as the Roman age when in the autumn, herds of cows would make their way down from the Alps to the valleys of the Po River. They would arrive in the fields near the city of Gorgonzola from the valleys of Bergamo, where they would feed on fresh grass, called quartirola. However, Gorgonzola's origin is somewhat clouded in mystery, with two different stories about how it began. One legend has it that the cheese wa
Blend Bistro & Wine Bar are planning to show selected FIFA World Cup 2018 games from Russia. With the majority of games kicking off at either 19:00 or 22:00 Bangkok time, that means most games will be available. Please check back either on this page or on our Facebook page for the most up to date information. However, some possible highlights in the early days could be: Thursday 14th June at 22:00, the opening game: RUSSIA v SAUDIA ARABIA Saturday 16th June at 17:00 (note the
We have revised and improved our popular Tuesday evening Wine Dinner Menu. It is now a "Black Truffle Wine Dinner" Menu, with each dish on the menu (except the dessert) incorporating the highest quality, imported black truffles. We have added an additional course from the previous menu - So now you have 5 courses to enjoy at your leisure every Tuesday evening, along with 4 glasses of wine, hand picked by Laurent. The menu finishes with one of our most popular dishes, our Blen
