Speedboat Bar Chinatown chef Luke Farrell

Speedboat Bar Chinatown chef Luke Farrell

What:​ An informal restaurant within the hinterland between Chinatown and Leicester Sq. that serves a menu impressed by the Thai-Chinese language delicacies present in Bangkok’s personal Chinatown. On Rupert Avenue, Speedboat Bar majors in curries, stir fries, drunken noodle dishes and salads that are supplied alongside whisky sodas and sharing towers of ice-cold Singha beer. 

Who:​ Speedboat Bar is the most recent restaurant from chef and exotic ingredients grower Luke Farrell.​ Since teaming up with Gymkhana and Trishna-owner JKS Eating places final 12 months, he has launched quite a few South East Asian ventures together with pop-up Vietpopulaire and Indonesian avenue meals stall Bebek!Bebek! and Southern Thai restaurant Plaza Khao Gaeng, that are each positioned in Arcade Meals Corridor. The more and more prolific Farrell – quite a few different initiatives are within the works – now splits his time between Thailand, London, and Ryewater Nursery in Dorset.

The vibe:​ On the previous web site of JKS Eating places-backed Tawainese restaurant Xu, Speedboat Bar has a themed really feel with partitions adorned with souvenirs, awards and signed portraits of speedboat racers and workers kitted out in specifically made Speedboat crew soccer equipment. The utilitarian, stainless-steel end downstairs is balanced by a extra comfortable-looking upstairs space with a big bar and pool desk. Wall-mounted TVs show Thai re-runs of Thai sports activities, together with sepak takraw, a compelling hybrid between soccer and volleyball. The restaurant’s playlist is eclectic, combining Western music of a sure classic – when was the final time you heard Morrissey in a restaurant? – with Thai pop.
