I knew I would spend Christmas Eve all by myself since Chris’s Christmas present to me was a room at Le Meridien Suvarnabhumi Bangkok Golf Resort and Spa
And since I was alone, that meant I would be eating dinner alone, too.
So how did it go?
I made a reservation at Favola, an Italian restaurant located on the ground floor of Le Meridien. It was around 9 pm when I arrived. Two couples occupied the other tables. The setting was romantic: dim lights, cold breeze, a nice view of the golf course. The only thing was, I was alone.
The staff took good care of me anyway. Two gorgeous servers assisted me and made sure they were looking after my needs.

The servers filled my glass with water and I couldn’t help noticing how well-dressed they were. They were neat, good looking, and constantly smiling.
For the starter, I had four slices of freshly baked bread with butter on the side. It quickly filled me up. I’m a big fan of bread, and whatever time of the day, I could eat a few slices or loaves.
Then I ordered a glass of red wine. I’m also a fan of red wines. White wine, on the other hand, seems to be not my thing.
A few moments later, one of the servers came to me.
My mind was froze.
Oh no! I don’t eat salmon!
I stared at the pinkish fresh meat fish topped with whipped cream on my plate. It looked tasty; I should give it a try.
The salmon tasted so good that I almost asked for more. There was one problem, though. The whipped cream had wasabi in it! I downed my red wine to drown the taste of wasabi.
The main course was fish called Seabass Confit in “Frontollo Preto” extra virgin olive oil with edible flowers. The fish was familiar to me, but I didn’t know how it was cooked. It was probably an Italian dish (well, yes, of course).
And the desert that I was waiting for!
Italian isn’t my all-time favorite cuisine, but I loved the food at Favola. Devouring my meal that night opened my mind and palate to a whole new world of tastes.
I finished my romantic dinner at a little past 10 and went back to my cozy room. Besides the food, another remarkable thing about Favola is the staff who never failed to amaze me.
Thirteen days later from December 23, I went back to Favola for another romantic dinner, this time, with my partner, Chris. I told him all the good things about the restaurant that kept him excited for the experience.
No surprise, he loved it more than I did. He loved how cozy and elegant the restaurant is. We were also invited to the cheese room where we had a taste of five cheese varieties that we had that night!

We loved how the food was meticulously served, plated in perfection. Favola is the perfect restaurant for family gatherings, dinner for two, or someone just wanting to dine in alone.
Kudos to Favola’s chefs and staff. In all honesty, I’d never experienced that level of warmness and hospitality before. What made it extra excellent was the erudite staff, as they knew exactly the best kind of food that you would enjoy. They also exhibited professionalism in serving us.
It’s fascinating how they pay extra attention to each meal and to the service they provide. I could not recall a single moment that the place disappointed us.
