Just when I was starting to feel that Bangkok needed a new outlook on dining and socializing, a new little venture popped up in Thonglor. Well, not that little. In fact, this new venue is actually quite large and impressive in many ways.
Offering a friendly and comfortable space for online gaming, beer pong, board games and even a game of pool, the new Game Over Lounge (●1000/39 Liberty Plaza, Thonglor, Bangkok) has all you need to enjoy a fun night out without the need to be part of a Tri-Lamb fraternity. But we are here to talk about NERD, the aptly-named restaurant that operates inside the complex. It will keep you on top of your game with a simple yet satisfying menu that has all the elements of an American-style diner. Those familiar with Mark, who operates the well-known burger food truck from Sukhumvit soi 38, Daniel Thaiger, will be pleased to know that he’s the one behind NERD.
I tasted several menu items on my visit and was not let down by any of them. From the addictive truffle and Parmesan fries (THB 150) to the peanut butter and chocolate malted shake (THB 240), from the Uncle Tew Lamb Burger (THB 340) to the Slammin’ Salmon Burger (THB 280), each dish was unique and delicious.
Although the menu really is just burgers, snacks, milkshakes, cocktails, and craft beer from Beervana (●www.seekbeervana.com), including the outstanding Kagua red from Japan (THB 290), if you are after a satisfying comfort fix—together with a bit of gaming—you will love NERD.
With its imaginative interior and colorful décor that will make you feel as if you are inside a video game, this funky new outlet really is a must-visit. Well done to the Game Over and NERD team.
Being a nerd has a cool side after all!
Open daily for lunch and dinner.
