Located on the B1 Floor of State Tower, one of the riverside’s most famed properties, Lutetia by Lebua is a bakery specialising in fresh homemade breads encompassing baguettes, focaccia, brioche, and ciabatta, as well as croissants and croissants stuffed with fillings like Thai tea, coffee, chocolate, and lemon. They also do a delightful High tea (THB 1,200), that you can savour in the safety of your own home, filled to the brim with scones, macaroons, pastries, and sandwiches.
Recently, the bakery has expanded with the introduction of the Curries menu, which features an array of regional Indian dishes that you can order home. Options include the Mutton Beliram curry (THB 360), named after the historical chef of Maharaja Ranjit Singh‘s kitchen, it combines tender, slow cooked lamb with green chillies, spices, and yoghurt.
They also serve more familiar curry variations like the Butter chicken (THB 310) and Butter paneer tikka (THB 290), in wich the relevant proteins are cooked in a rich, creamy tomato and cashew nut gravy. Pair your curry with your choice of basmati rice (THB 70), or plain, garlic, or butter naan (starting at THB 45). Beyond just curries, the bakery also dishes up a Parda chicken biryani (THB 410), the traditional Hyderabadi dish of chicken layered between basmati saffron rice steam-baked in a traditional handi, or clay pot, and sealed with puff pastry.
All dishes are available for order via Grab, Line Man, and Robinhood.
