Thai Lunch at Erawan Tea Room, Bangkok | รีวิวอาหาร เมนูแนะนำ เอราวัณทีรูม

When it was debuted years ago, Erawan Tea Room inadvertently set a trend that would later become the hottest one of the current time – bringing back Thai foods and desserts and make them all cool again. But now, it seems, even after years into their operation, the place is now making another statement that is equally very awesome. First, they are not serving you plastic straw now, unless you ask for one. Second, their menu features sustainable signs, meaning they are buying seafood from small-scale fisheries who conduct their fishing businesses in a certified organic or sustainable way. Consumers are having more moral and environmental...

ครัวกระแต Krua Kratae Thai Food, Bangkok

(⬇︎ภาษาไทย⬇︎) SUMMARY – Krua Kratae is another trusty place where we go for delicious Thai dishes. The restaurant used to be located in Pradipat area, but somehow they have now moved to Ramindra Soi 5, which happens to be near our community. Krua Kratae is known for freshwater fishes, fishballs made from prakrai or featherback, river prawns and their homemade salted duck eggs and chiffon cakes and Thai desserts. The price is a bit steep for a place like this (Bt200 per plate, and the prawns Bt500 for four whole prawns), but the portions are quite large, hence not too bad considering the quality and quantity.  Taste: 4/5 ...

Cafe de Norasingha Phya Thai Palace, Bangkok | กาแฟนรสิงห์ พระราชวังพญาไท

It is not everyday that you get to have lunch at a palace, and also in this case, a cafe that is the homage to Thailand’s oldest Western style cafe back in the reign of King Rama VI or King Vajiravudh (1910-1925) during which Siam was high on westernization and modernization. The cafe was called Cafe de Norasingha (กาแฟนรสิงห์) then as it is called now. But the venue has changed. From the area called ‘Sua Pa’ in the old town, the new cafe is now located inside the Phya Thai Palace in Phra Mongkutklao Hospital on Ratchawithi Road in Bangkok. Situated inside the royal car-boarding platform and the waiting...

Saawaan Thai Fine Dining, Bangkok

when that Thailand has become a land of degustation menu? I guess it’s just something that happened when we have loads of aspiring young chefs looking for a way to showcase their new cooking. Take Saawaan, for example, a new addition to Thai fine-dining that only offers a tasting menu of Thai food, interpreted by the two young female and very interesting Thai chefs. The restaurant is located in Soi Suanplu, just off Sathorn Road. Or Sathorn Soi 3, roughly about half way between BTS Chong Nonsee and MRT Lumpini. Or if you drive, parking (free two hours, Bt30 for each extra hour) is available at the nearby Somerset Park Suan Plu apartment...

สงวนศรี ‘Sanguan Sri,’ Bangkok

ภาษาไทยด้านล่างค่ะ – There are quite a few reasons you should stop by and eat beautifully at this old-time Sanguan Sri on a Saturday. First, Sanguan Sri – a staple Thai restaurant that has been around since 1970 – is much more relaxing, hence an excellent option for those who, like me, just cannot stand its perpetual craziness during the weekdays. Also, Saturday is the day that they serve a very special dish that you would never find on any other day: the super delicious ‘steamed sago with chicken dumplings’ or Sago Sai Gai สาคูไส้ไก่ in Thai. This sago, and I...
