I was one of the 6 bloggers who won the TAT Newsroom Blogger Campaign in 2016. The competition gave me the chance to experience various places in Thailand. Being the lone Filipino in the group, I was very excited to meet other bloggers and the organisers.
Our first meeting and the reception for the participants was held at Eight Sight Story. The place was not really that inviting from the outside. I was even a bit confused as the location doesn’t show any signs of any great restaurant. But I was surprised the moment I get inside…
Eat Sight Story is located along the Chao Phraya River across from Wat Arun in Bangkok. Not exactly seen in plain sight, hidden in an alleyway, this Asian mixed with European cuisine themed restaurant assures that all their guests would Eat fine and delicious food, see the beautiful Sight of the Temple of Dawn, and know the Story of the Rua Daeng (red-coloured boat).
The history of this restaurant is that the pier where it is situated used to be a pier for transporting goods. Established in the early 1900’s, the pier was filled with red-colored boats. It was a busy and lively area at that time. Although through the years, as major road constructions were built in Bangkok, the hustle and bustle of the pier slowly died down. But now, it is making its comeback once again because of Eat Sight Story.
But other than its unique name and history, there are other reasons why this restaurant is becoming popular amongst tourists and locals alike.
Upon entering the restaurant you would already notice the walls that are decorated with wonderfully crafted wooden doors. The whole interior design of the restaurant also shouts a fusion of European-Asian feel. Combining the ancient and vintage look of both continents using old ornaments and patterns found in different parts of Asia and Europe.
Its décor is just one of the things that you would love about this place. The food they serve will definitely make you come back for more. They offer and serve different kinds of fusion meals that are a must try.
