Taburete Spanish Tapas Quick Review:
Stray into this tiny tapas restaurant near Bangkok’s Emporium mall and you’re in for a pleasant surprise. The small shop run by a Thai chef and her Spanish husband is a mini-hub for Spanish expats and foreigners craving authentic tapas. I’ve written about Taburete before and it still remains one of my favorite tapas spots, even as the number of tapas restaurants in the area balloons.
In subsequent visits I’m reminded how uncomfortable the seating can be and with only room for 5-7 tables you may need to wait or just call and reserve ahead. Since they insist on using high quality, often imported ingredients you can burst your dinner budget on tapas pretty fast here too. Still despite those qualms, every visit is a treat with delicious specials on the wall and the main menu being updated frequently. This meant on the last visit I enjoyed favorites such as their fideua style paella and was simply forced to order more of the lamb confit in filo pastry. Also since checking out their beer selection, they have added Sagra, a top Spanish craft beer, on tap!
