Eastin Grand Sathorn Bangkok proudly presents Blunos, Martin Blunos’ restaurant at the poolside on the 14th floor of the hotel and the 2-Michelin Star recipient’s first establishment to open outside his native England.
With his trademark walrus moustache and lilting West Country accent, Martin’s amiable, friendly demeanour belies a skill which has led him to achieve 2 coveted Michelin Stars each for his two restaurants and a host of TV appearances including his own show and appearances on “Iron Chef UK” “MasterChef Australia”.
Forget fine dining and avant-garde adventures – Blunos is all about value for money hearty fare and classic comfort food devoid of any pretentiousness, yet made with the most delectable and desirable of ingredients prepared with Martin’s Michelin Star touch. As the man himself says “My Michelin Stars were a great personal achievement but in the end it’s not the accolades you hang on your wall which count, it’s the empty plates and satisfied smiles which truly mean the most. At Blunos I’ll be making real food for real people.”
Martin’s menu certainly lives up to this promise with a selection of superbly satisfying dishes at prices that are as enticing as the food, including his range of signature specialties such as the signature Lobster Roll, made with Canadian lobster in a garlic-buttered soft roll with shellfish oil and orange mayonnaise, a quarter shoulder of lamb cooked long and slow with lots of garlic & lemon and rosemary on crushed potatoes, a pork belly braised long and slow in apple juice, ginger and spices, served with sticky chickpeas plus a dreamy range of fantastically familiar desserts such as the Milkberry Puff, with rich cream of ‘Chitralada’ milk tablets, crispy puff pastry and tangy raspberry sauce, based on Martin’s winning recipe from IRON CHEF THAILAND.
The space at Blunos fully complements Martin’s menu with an relaxed atmosphere which encourages diners to stay awhile over a laid-back meal simply enjoying the moment, while the new poolside bar with a resident DJ (every Tuesday – Sunday from 19.00-22.00 hrs.) provides the perfect spot hang-out.
