Eating in Bangkok

Back from my short getaway to Bangkok! Gotta quickly get this post done before my next flight out of Singapore!

I promised to share good restaurants with ya'll so this post will be filled with lotsa food pictures! My friends did a bit of research on the places to go to so most of the places i recommend in this post will not disappoint! It sure didn't disappoint me one bit. :)

This trip we stayed at Urbana Langsuan, located at Chidlom. We got the 2 Bedroom Suite. More details on the hotel (here).

The rooms were really clean and nice and best thing is it's not expensive at all!

Now time to introduce the restaurants to check out when you are in Bangkok!

1. Mama Dolores 
20 Soi Yen Akat | Sathorn, Bangkok, Thailand

They serve really good pizza there! There were like 20 of us so we ordered quite a variety of pizzas. ALL WERE REALLY GOOD!!! Oh and you have to try their lamb kebab too.

No more pictures because we were all SOOOO hungry after our flight.

2. Chicken Noodles at Chatuchak 

THE SOUP IS JUST AMAZING. The serving is really small though but good because you will still have space to try more food at Chatuchak. :)

3. Another Hound by Greyhound
Siam Paragon 

There's also the Greyhound Cafe (located at Siam Centre - the building beside Siam Paragon) which i LOVE!  Another Hound seems more "atlas".

 This is usually something i will not order cus of the rice crackers but Sofie kept raving about how good this dish was. So we tried and OMG the dip was SO GOOOOOOOD!

The chicken wings are highly recommended too!

4. After You
Siam Paragon


The toast is what most people would order when they visit After You.

Go to After You for the best desserts in town! It is a really popular dessert place in Bangkok so be prepared to queue - we waited for 45min!

5. Mellow
16 Thonglor, Bangkok

According to my thai friend, there are a lot of good restaurants at Thonglor (where a lot of bars and clubs are at too)! I haven't got to try any because i'm always lazy to get out of the Pratunam area.

I really REALLY recommend Mellow for a nice dinner followed by drinks!

Soju Jelly - Peach. SO YUMMY. I really wished my alcohol tolerance was better so i can enjoy a whole glass to myself.

Smoked Duck Spring Rolls - MUST TRY!

Chicken Wings - SO GOOD

Braised Beef Ribs

Tiger Prawn Linguine in Pink Sauce


Sirloin Steak

6. Pratunam Wanton Mee and Pork Leg Rice
4/32-33 Soi Petchburi 19, Pratunam

Something i have without fail when i'm in Bangkok. I usually stay around Platinum Mall and this is located just opposite Platinum Mall, the lane beside Shibuya.

Not sure if it's popular among the locals in Bangkok but it sure is among Singaporeans because it is forever filled with Singaporeans. Lol.

Portion is tiny so you can afford to eat one plate of pork leg rice and one bowl of this. Or 2 bowls of this because THIS IS JUST TOOOO YUMMY.

7. Somtam
392/14 Soi Siam Square 5

For the best chicken wings in town!

5 Sukumvit 31, Bangkok 10110

For Japanese Food! The most interesting looking sushis - looks good and tastes good. :D

I recommend getting the set meals and then some sushi to share! The Set Meals are so cheap - really value for money!

Spicy Salmon Sushi

 Nigiri Set - i always order this at most japanese restaurants i visit. I love kappa maki (cucumber sushi). It's nothing special but it has been my favorite sushi since i was 5 - also the first sushi i ever tried. :D

 Sushi Sandwich!

 Jackie the Caterpillar

9. Crepes & Co
59/4 Langsuan Soi 1

Located just beside our hotel, Urbana Langsuan is this beautiful quiet restaurant which serves really nice crepes!

You can make your own crepe too if you don't like what they have in the menu!

 This was really good. There like bits of bacon, ham with cream!

And a dessert crepe, chocolate ice cream + bananas - can't go wrong!

Both the savory and dessert crepes are equally yummy. :D

Ok! And that's all the food places i checked out this trip!

Feel free to share this post with friends heading to Bangkok or bookmark it and check the restaurants out the next time you're there! 

Will be flying off for work but can't wait to update this space again when i'm back. :)
