Brunch O’Clock is the new breakfast concept at 22 Kitchen and Bar. The restaurant is located on the 22nd floor of the Dusit Thani Bangkok. On late Sunday the ambiance was very relaxed. Seating options are from casual sofas to formal dining settings. What were very remarkable were the views that look out to Lumpini Park and Silom area. It would have been even more outstanding in the evening.

The dining concept is not like Sunday brunch we are used to, it is an a la carte. We started with some smoothies and coffee. Along with it come the complimentary mini blue berry muffins.
The menu is mostly comfort food with many dishes that are breakfast oriented. Items from the menu are mixture of American, Mexican and some Asian influences.
Tuna Crostini (290), this was my favorite; the sourdough bread was nicely grilled topped with avocado, tuna, prawn roe, and salad. It was a very healthy dish.
Gangster eggs benedict (400); if I was very hungry, this would pretty much satisfy that hunger. It was house made biscuit filled with country ham, fried chicken and 2 poached eggs. The portion was very big. The only thing I would complain about was there was too much hollandaise sauce which made it very heavy.
Double-double cheese burger (450), this was my son’s favorite; it was so good we had two. It is two wagyu beef patties, cheddar cheese, and jalapeno sauce, served with a potato salad.
Beer battered fish bao bun tacos (330), instead of the tortilla the chef used squash Chinese bun as the taco shell.
Country Fried steak and eggs (850), this would have been a great dish but the presentation was not that appealing; it was beef battered then perfectly fried but it was covered with two fried eggs and a lot creamy sauce. If it was plated differently; eggs and sauce on the side, it would have been much better.
Pan Roasted snapper (680); nicely done, beautifully presented.
Shrimp and grits (380) was our last savory dish and it didn’t disappoint. It was corn based porridge and tomato gravy on the side, topped with shrimps, sausage and roasted baby onions.
Aunt Jemima’s pancake (340); large thick pancakes with butter whipped cream blue berries.
Cinnamon sugar churros (170); Mexican fried bread served with a dipping caramel sauce. It was a simple dish but it was gone in no time.
Strawberry shortcake (190); cookies topped with vanilla ice cream and diced strawberries.
If you are here for a simple breakfast or looking for American comfort food or even a hangover meal, on a Sunday, the Brunch O’Clock at 22 Kitchen and Bar would be one of the place I would think of.
