Thailand - Where to eat in Bangkok

Where to eat in Bangkok. Bangkok is one of my favorite city in the world! I will always find time to go once a year to immerse myself in shopping and eating~ Below is the list of restaurants/cafes I have been for the past frequent visits to Bangkok. I hope this list will continue as long as possible.

Thailand - Bangkok : #FoodHoppingBKK Cabbages and Condoms Restaurant

Cabbages and Condoms Restaurant. "This is the most unusual restaurant theme I ever went.". The main concept of this restaurant is to promote better understanding and acceptance of family planning as well as to generate income to support various development activities of the Population and Community Development Association (PDA). #notPublicDisplayofAffection. In short, is to promote safe sex. This topic has been the sensitive and taboo in the past, but now is widely discussed even by school children before we knew it.

Thailand - Bangkok : #CafeHoppingBKK Roast Coffee & Eatery

Roast Coffee & Eatery. "I need a second visit soon!". Till date, other than Sheep Cafe in Korea, this is the best coffee I had. I have no knowledge about coffee or coffee seeds, this is the one coffee that I do not mind refilling another cup. "The Daily Roast" consists of interesting articles, interviews, collaboration news, recipes and lastly the menu.

Thailand - Bangkok : Rotfai Night Market

The most retro night market in Bangkok - Talad Rot Fai. "Talad" means market and "Rot Fai" means train in Thai. It literary means train market. It was previously located at an old and abandoned railway station near Chatujak Weekend Market. It is now moved to Seacon Square - not near any BTS station so better to take a cab there.

Thailand - Bangkok : #FoodHoppingBKK ISAO

ISAO - One of the best Japanese fusion restaurants in Bangkok. Was strongly recommended by a friend whose brother lives in Bangkok for the longest time and told me I will not regret going to this Japanese fusion restaurant. The location a little funny - not near any BTS station nor any shopping mall and is hiding in between shophouses. It is a 10 minutes walk on a straight road from Asoke BTS station and 2 minutes walk after a left turn into the alley. Although not perfect location, this place always full house!

Thailand - Bangkok : #CafeHoppingBKK After You dessert cafe

Dessert Cafe - After You. The first thing you gonna notice about this dessert cafe is its super long queue. Being super kiasu Singaporean, of course queue right! #goodfoodofcoursemustwait lol The first time I visited this dessert cafe was with my girlfriends at Siam Paragon's branch and we waited for at least 1.5 hour standing outside the cafe. We took turn to shop around. Do not think they accept reservation, otherwise, why would so many people crowd outside the premises. #clevermove

Thailand - Bangkok : Maeklong Railway Market + Damnoen Saduak Floating Market

Maeklong Station + Damnoen Saduak Floating Market. Just days before our trip, I saw this floating market deal on one of the deals websites only for $26 per pax. I saw the same floating market prices on those local travel agents website was alot higher, not sure whether those local want to chop tourists or its really a good deal. I think its the former reason though lol. Anyway, always email the travel agent to confirm the dates before buying the deal! They were quite prompt in replying email too.

Thailand - Bangkok : #FoodHoppingBKK Som Tam Nua

Som Tam Nua - Winner of Bangkok best som tam in 2010. Here is the most raved best som tam restaurant in Bangkok. Not only the locals love to come here, this is one of the must eat restaurants for tourists. Our next table was a group of Singaporeans taking out their camera phone to take photo before eat. Singaporean's style #LetCameraEatsFirst. Of course, this restaurant's signature dish is this som tam. Som tam is a green papaya salad made from shredded unripe papaya.

Thailand - Bangkok : A-Not-So-Chocolaty's Chocolate Ville

Chocolate Ville - Dining in the Park. This name is very very misleading. It does not sell any chocolate related stuff nor even the houses are made of chocolate (how I wish they are though!). When I heard this place recommended by my friend, I was very skeptical about going there. "Chocolate Ville"? No, it does not sound very intriguing at all. In my mind, it appears as a bigger version of Hershey chocolate shop at USS. I am so glad that I went there in the end as it totally proved me wrong 360 degree! It is a little out of town. It's around 30-45min cab drive from hotel which was near Platinum Mall depending on the traffic. We were welcomed by this european-feel windmill plus perfect weather, my mood and my eyes immediately brightened up!

Thailand - Bangkok : #CafeHoppingBKK "Kids' Playground" Mr. Jones' Orphanage

Mr. Jones' Orphanage. The name of this desserts cafe sounds a little sad and creepy but the quirky decoration has made itself the most welcoming orphanage ever. Mr. Jones, well done in giving it such an intriguing name. When you walk in the cafe, it is almost as if you enter another world that separates you from the noisy and messy environment outside - a long wooden train tracks that runs around the whole cafe, teddy bears dangling around and piles of cakes on a big dining table in the middle of the cafe. The visual digestion has already half filled up our stomach already.

Thailand - Bangkok : Asiatique The Riverfront

ASIATIQUE The Riverfront. First I knew about this newly set up night market was from a cab driver and my girl friend wanted to go to Patpong but the rest of us were like "Hey boring...". Then the cab driver overheard us so introduced this Asiatique to us. Asiatique is the largest lifestyle outdoor shopping mall in Bangkok by Chao Phraya river which opened on May 2012. Barely 2 years, it is now the most upscale riverside night market and may be the trendiest landmark in Bangkok. #ISayOne. So this is my second trip to Asiatique and this time I chose to take water transport instead.
