Although almost directly adjacent to Asok BTS station, Sukhumvit Soi 14 is a pretty quiet street — especially compared to its neighbour, the mighty Ratchadaphisek Road.
It is home to expat favourite, Hemingway’s, however – one of Sukhumvit’s best restaurants, set within the former house and grounds of the French ambassador in the 1940s.
Let’s see what else this soi has in store…
Drinking and dining at Hemingway’s is always a special experience – the food is high quality and reasonably priced, while an extensive cocktail menu (with regular drinks promotions) will keep you merry long into the night.
As per their name, the menu is designed to reflect the adventures and travels of Ernest Hemingway and includes more than a few Cuban delights. There’s also regularly rotating specials to contend with. WOS favourites include the Oven Roasted Norwegian Salmon and chorizo-stuffed pork chop.
Perennially busy and filled with both tourists and locals, the semi-open air Thai restaurant, Suda, sits just across the way from Hemingway’s.
While foodies may dispute its ‘authentic’ label — it serves a huge array of regional Thai cuisine without much focus — it’s unquestionably popular casual dining, which may suit some patrons. Prices are low.
