Some of the foodies may have heard of a new food hub in town — or even already visited there. Dusit Gourmet, a brand new café on Saladaeng Road is one of the outlets of Baan Dusit Thani. This outlet served as a new home for staff while Dusit Thani Bangkok, a world-renowned hospitality institution, is currently under renovation.
Bangkok Foodies/ Foodies OFFICIAL Asia discovered that this serene setting on Saladaeng road is full of history. The land belongs to the Osathanugrah family, a well-known Thai family who own Osotsapa, the manufacturer of drinks such as M-150 and Shark Stimulation. The Dusit Thani team saw a lot of potential in the property and they finally rented this historical ground from the Osathanugrah family and renovated it into a one of a kind food hub.
Stepping into this leafy food hub housing 3 new concepts from Dusit Thani, foodies will be greeted by the statue of Thai folklore, Krai Thong fighting Crocodile Lord, Chalawan. Each house within the complex hosts different dining concepts visitors can explore and enjoy.
The first part of this food hub, Dusit Gourmet houses the first stand alone outlet for the beloved, original bakery concept from Dusit Thani. This cosy and nostalgic cafe doesn’t only serve quality coffees, teas, cold drinks, bakeries, and simple dishes but also healthier options for conscious foodies. Enjoy Acai Bowl (฿240), a smoothie bowl full of fresh fruits fits for vegan foodies.
For a slightly heartier option, try Have a Toast (฿250), smashed avocado on toast which foodies can add 50 more for a poached egg on top, is a perfect choice. For meaty options, Seared Tuna and Sesame Bowl (฿350), a medium cooked Tuna with colourful veggies is another alluring dish to be considered. Pair each of the dishes with a glass of Wakey Wakey (฿150), a mixed juice contains carrot, orange, turmeric, pineapple and lemon.

At the heart of the food hub, the main building of Baan Dusit Thani houses their sophisticated and refined concept for Dusit Thani’s original restaurant, Benjarong, where foodies can enjoy their favourite Thai classics dishes with modern techniques. Goong Hom Sabai (฿660), a dish of deep-fried tiger prawns wrapped in egg noodles with sweet and sour caviar, is a perfect appetizer. Benjarong’s Tom Yum Goong (฿495) is a Tom Yum Goong like no other. The prawns are grilled first then the spicy Tom Yum soup will be poured in the bowl at your table. See Krong Moo Krob Wan (฿470), a sweet barbeque pork ribs topped with fermented Sriracha cabbage, is another comforting favourite. Gaeng Kiew Wan See Krong Neau Toon (฿710), a generous portion of tender beef rib meets sweet and salty, green curry is a dish to die for.
