OSTERIA ITALIA: Restaurant and Coffee Shop. Yes there is a “little Italy” hidden away in the back streets of Buriram and your culinary reporters at the “Buriram Times” have found it and enjoyed a fantastic lunch for their efforts!
The Osteria Italia has recently opened and the marvellous chef is still finding his feet and sorting out his final menu to suit the clientele of Buriram. He is however generous with his time and chatted us through a few options. We settled for a shared plate of typical Italian anti pasti to start and then asked him to surprise us with the next few courses.
While this discussion had being going on we had been served with a free dish of mushrooms and various mouthwatering bits along with his homemade bread to keep us going as he set off to the kitchen. As mentioned Osteria Italia make their own bread and all the pasta is homemade.
There is a good selection of wine (mostly Italian of course). We settled for the Chianti as you would expect.
The anti-pasti was delicious, so much so that we forgot to take a photo so the one you see is from our gallery stock as opposed to the actual one served.
A few more courses arrived which we did manage to photograph all of which were wonderful.
To finish off we had a special Italian dessert cake with a cup of Chicco Doro coffee.
The chef recommended a sambuca to aid digestion which went down rather well.
At the moment Osteria Italia opens from 10 am until 11 pm but may change as they are considering serving breakfast.
The restaurant is to become an advertising partner with the Buriram Times and will soon have a banner on our website with more details and a copy of the menu.
We would advise you not to wait but go along and discover this great family- style restaurant and enjoy the experience for yourselves.
