There is no better way to escape the hustle, bustle and manic traffic of downtown Bangkok than to enjoy an evening of ‘say wine and say cheese’ at Sambal Bar & Grill in the Royal Orchid Sheraton Hotel & Towers along the Chao Phraya River. Priced at just $19.13USD (599Baht) ++per person, and taking place every 3rd Friday of the month, this exclusive wine event is an extension of the ‘Sheraton’s Social Hour’ and takes place at the hotel's laid back Asian grill Sambal. The event kicks off at 18:30 and continues until 20:30, during which time you will have unlimited access to gourmet cheeses, hot snacks, and appetizers coupled with drinkable red and white wines sourced from around the globe. They usually will feature old and new world wines from different regions and rotate them monthly so you can experience something exciting and new every time you visit. According to the management team, this promotion is ongoing into the foreseeable future and it’s easy to see why it has become a favorite monthly event for Bangkok wine lovers.
Sambal has plenty of indoor seating available, but most guests prefer to be outside on the terrace where you can lounge on comfortable couches and get an up close and personal view of all the activity along the river as you groove to techno pop music that sets a festive and upbeat mood. Inside you will discover a lively vibe and a stunning selection of tidbits including salads and vegetarian options to go with the wine. I especially recommend the Cheese Fondue that you can dip with fresh mushrooms or bread, the Fried Calamari which is very crispy and tender, the Sardines w/Tomato, and my all-time favorite the Raclette which you can get made to order. This popular grilled cheese and potato dish allows you to add toppings such as bacon, onion and mushrooms for a gooey and hearty comfort food experience which lays a foundation for the deluge of free flow wine. The ‘Say Wine, Say Cheese’ event is a great way to kick off your Friday night before heading out to the clubs and the ample selection of hearty snacks, cheeses, breads, salads, and even desserts are enough to fill you up for the night. Another great option is to make a weekend out of it by booking a room at the hotel and spending the night so that you can enjoy several versions of eggs benedict starting at just 190Baht for a perfect indulgent breakfast on Saturday from 08:00hours to 12 noon at Sambal Bar & Grill.
