I’m about to head out but I thought I’d just drop by to share some pictures from a recent lunch at Lord Jim’s at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel. I’m sure a lot of you know this place, but for those of you who don’t, Lord Jim’s has one of the most famous international buffets in Bangkok; and in my opinion, the best. When I say the best, I don’t mean in one particular category such as the biggest selection of food or the freshest seafood, but I think it’s the best overall. For seafood lovers, I think Fifty Five at Centara Grand is probably a more satisfying choice and for variety JW Marriott probably has a little more selection. But for me, I’m a big fan of eating a little of everything and this place offers a great variety of dishes, all using top quality ingredients. And it does not hurt that it offers world-class service with a killer view of the Chao Praya river.
And I have to say, I love LOVE love their caramel custard. I don’t know what they put in there to make it so silky, but it’s definitely the best I’ve had. Also, their macarons are better than the ones I can find anywhere else in Thailand. And you know how I feel about macarons. =)
Lastly, I just want to note that we went really late on that day so some of the dishes might not look as plentiful as it normally is at Lord Jim’s because it’s almost at their closing time. So, if you go, you could expect to find a more replenished selection.
Enjoy the pictures and Bon Appétit!
