Chokchai is Bangkok’s best-known local steakhouse, which also runs their own farm north of Bangkok, where you can see Thai cowboys rope their cattle in a Wild West environment.
Cream of mushroom soup. This tasted really bland, and was practically flooded with croutons. Not recommended.
Aged T-bone steak, served with baked potato and boiled vegetables.
My Isaan-style Highland Steak, served with glutinous rice, marinated minced beef and spicy-tamarind sauce. This was an amazing dish - good quality steak paired with Thai condiments, sticky rice and even a Northern Thai-style burger patty. Must-try!
My choice for desserts was an old-fashioned Peach Melba, and Chokchai’s house-made ice-cream was rich and super-creamy. An absolute delight:
We dined at the most accessible branch - at Sukhumvit. The other two were the beautiful ranch-style Rangsit branch which is near the old Don Mueang airport, whilst the third one was the Pakchong branch located at Farm Chokchai at Nong Nam Daeng, a good 2.5 hours’ drive Northeast of Bangkok, where Chokchai maintained a large cattle farm and rodeo theme park:
