I briefly mentioned American Restaurant Week in my roundup at the end of last month, and now the week of eating ‘merica’s greatest hits is upon us. The list of restaurants where you can get discounts and promotional items for mentioning “American Restaurant Week” isn’t as large as I hoped and a few of the things on offer sound suspect. However, there are some interesting restaurants participating and a few I’ve written about on the Bangkok Fatty blog before. Here’s some photos to inspire you to participate in this year’s #amfoodweek and details on a few extra incentives from the US Embassy.
Protip: I went through all of the deals on offer, including the ones from restaurants not featured here. Of them, the most diverse and interesting food offers are from BKK Bagels and Bourbon Street. The Burger Factory (BTS Ekkamai) deal is the only restaurant on the list that includes booze, giving you a free pint of draught beer for purchasing a burger. To see all of the deals available during American Restaurant Week visit the US Embassy website.
