They even have chefs walking around to ensure that the food is replenished on time and to inspect its quality. Talk about detail-oriented! Follow us as we talk about the marvellous dishes we had below!
1. Soup of the day – Potato Cream Soup
For starters, we had the soup of the day, which was Potato Cream Soup. It reminded me of mashed potatoes, but this time as a soup. The soup was rich and the taste of potatoes was very prominent. The addition of heavy cream in the soup made it creamier and more substantial. I can see why this would be a popular choice for soup lovers as it has a familiar taste and is very comforting on a chilly day.
2. Prawn Gambas
57th Street is well-known for its seafood buffet and after trying it out for myself, I can totally see why they pride themselves on it. However, the star of the show for me was the Prawn Gambas. The prawns that they used were large, fresh and crunchy. Every bite had a nice kick of spice to it from the fresh garlic and red chili. It was not too salty and was very aromatic. Just writing about this now makes me want to go back just for this dish! If you are to try anything from 57th Street, it should be this.
3. Grilled River Prawns
Next, I had the Grilled River Prawns and they were equally delicious. The prawns had a beautiful charred exterior and the smokiness from the grill truly brought out their natural sweetness. The prawn roe provided a unique texture and balanced out the multitude of flavours with a bit of savouriness. The Thai seafood chilli sauce that came with this dish also made a great pairing with it. It’s great for those who like some spice with their seafood.
4. Chilled Flower Crabs
The Chilled Flower Crabs were juicy and sweet, as you would expect from fresh seafood. This dish came with a lemon butter sauce, but I preferred dipping it in the Thai seafood chilli sauce instead. The crab meat came out of its shell easily with little mess, which I appreciated. However, be careful when cracking open the shell as the crabs might have some sharp parts and you may hurt yourself (like I unfortunately did)!
If you want to try eating the crabs in a different way, I recommend opening the body of the crab and dipping the meat from the crab’s pincers or legs into the umami crab roe.
5. Assorted Sushi
I also tried an assortment of sushi at 57th Street and it surpassed my expectations! I usually steer away from raw fish as I am particular about the fishy smell that some sushi might have. However, I gave these ones a try and was pleasantly surprised as they had no smell but instead were melt-in-the-mouth worthy. The seared salmon sushi was my favourite here as it was creamy yet had a nice bite due to it being semi-cooked.
6. Baked Sea Bass with Lemon and Butter Sauce
The Baked Sea Bass was cooked to perfection. The flesh was opaque and easily flaked apart with a fork. The meat was moist and tender, with a delicate, mild flavour that is characteristic of sea bass. As someone who doesn’t really eat fish, I enjoyed this dish because of the different textures it offered and because of the lemon and butter sauce. It provided an additional depth of flavour and cancelled out any fishiness that the sea bass might have had.
7. Minute Steak
The 200 gram Minute Steak came in medium rare doneness with a slightly pink centre, served alongside a flaky potato pave and half of a grilled tomato. The thinly sliced cut of beef was flavourful and had a balance between tenderness and a slight resistance when bitten into. Accompanying the steak was a well grilled tomato and an impressively done potato pave. The exterior layers of the pave had a slight crispness, while the interior layers remained soft and melt-in-your-mouth. The grilled tomato was tangy yet sweet and overall worked as a great palette cleanser.
8. Virgin Mojito Mocktail
I was also able to try out their Virgin Mojito also known as the non-alcoholic version of a Mojito cocktail. The notes of the fresh mint leaves were extremely sharp, which is what I look out for in a good Mojito. The lime juice in the mocktail made the beverage very refreshing and balanced out the sweetness of the simple syrup. All in all, the delightful combination of zesty lime, fragrant mint, and a hint of sweetness, created a revitalising and thirst-quenching drink that was well needed after the enormous spread I had before.
9. Assorted Desserts
To end the meal off on a high note, we tried an assortment of desserts. Their dessert table was very popular with the crowds as well. There were different types of cakes, such as Red Velvet, Green Tea, Opera Cake, Fruit Cake and Chocolate. If you’re not a fan of cakes, they have Chocolate and Mango Mousse to satiate your sweet tooth too!
The cakes were decadent in the right amount and not overly sweet, which was perfect for me. Because the cakes were cut up into small slices, it wasn’t cloying for me and I could easily go back to try the other cakes. My favourite dessert however, was the Mango Mousse because of its light tartness and the fresh mangoes that came with it.
To conclude, my dining experience at 57th Street by Marriott Sukhumvit 57 was nothing short of exceptional. I was treated with warm hospitality from the moment I walked in and even experienced a divine culinary journey that got my tastebuds jumping. The restaurant truly does everything right – from the atmosphere to the exquisite food, I was not disappointed with anything I ate. I definitely recommend this restaurant to those who are looking for a place to celebrate a big event or even those who just wish to spoil themselves once in a while.
