Soif Seats : About Eatery
In our blog series; ‘Soif Seats’, We will be providing a monthly review of watering holes that focus their wine program around organic, sustainable and bio-dynamic wines. With the vast array of offerings in town, just labeling wines is not enough. It's about the journey, it always has been. Our monthly highlight will provide an insight into the minds of the people who curate them. Individuals who have built a strong foundation of conviction that sets the real players from the band wagon jumpers. Strap in, fill your glass...here we go.
This month we head down to Asok/Sukhumvit 19 to meet the original godfather of natural wine establishments in Thailand, About Eatery!
In the last few highlights, we have been focusing on purely bars that stage or offer scrumptious small plates to pair along side their wines. At About Eatery, the ethos on wine curation is held to the highest natural integrity and their food is integrated into the overall experience. Did you know that they are Vegan-friendly in several of their offerings alongside a vast vegan wine selection!
Cold cuts; A huge variety of cheeses. Their Beetroot ravioli is something we always go back for. (Tip: Pairs well with the Chilean natural wines). The food offering at About Eatery is solid and stands up to the reputation of its homely, heartwarming Italian comfort food!
As for the wines, Organic, Biodynamic and Natural wines run the Gamut. Giulio who runs About Eatery along with his wonderful team, has curated a wonderful, almost encyclopedic, wine list. Wines from California, Georgia, South Africa even Tenerife! So many flavor profiles, so many styles. You can just sit, sip and learn!
Trust Giulio to guide you in the right direction for your natural wine needs (We always let him pick wines for us!). Being a sommelier by profession in his early days, he took a big leap away from conventional wines, and started focusing on what he is passionate about. It's all about conviction and belief.
So, to sum up in a few words. Rustic Italian comfort food. Vegan and Vegetarian friendly options. An awesome wine list with a variety of exclusive wines only to About Eatery. Ask Giulio for all your recommendations (Tell him Naturalista sent you). A place you will always keep going back to for your family brunches, or dinner gatherings with close friends and loved ones. We absolutely love it!
