I’m sure many Singaporeans love to travel over to Bangkok for two main reasons: Shop and Eat!
Isn’t it simply amazing how we can spend 3-5 days on average, just shopping and eating alone in the Land of Smiles? Having just came back from Bangkok last month, I’ve decided to put together a post introducing the places that are worthy to visit when you are there! Part One: Where to eat in Bangkok.
SabX2 Wanton Noodles:
Address: 4/32-33 Soi Petchburi 19 | Pratunam, Bangkok, Thailand
Directions: Cross the bridge from 2nd floor of Platinum mall to the other side of the road, continue walking straight and turn into the lane upon seeing Mcdonalds.
If you are a frequent traveller to Bangkok, you would have heard of this famous wanton noodle stall that is always jam packed with Singaporeans and Malaysians during lunch hours. My initial thoughts before visiting this stall were “Is this bowl of noodles worth the 20 minute wait?” However, when I finally got to savour the springy noodles topped with their chilli sauce and sugar seasoning, I was won over. The noodles tasted just right with the chilli and seasoning, the fried lard added extra oomph to the taste of the noodles. No wonder Singaporeans come here without fail when they visit Bangkok. Priced at 50 Baht (around SG$2) per bowl, it costs slightly more than the average Bangkok street food. Most people who visit the stall don’t leave without finishing at least 2 bowls of noodles, which actually isn’t a lot as their servings are generally small.
Apart from their Wanton Noodles, their braised pork is also worth a try. Fragrant and succulent braised pork trotters to be eaten on its own as a side dish or with rice as a main dish.
After You Café:
Address: Siam Paragon B1, Thong Lor 13
After You Café is the perfect place for all of you who have a sweet tooth. They serve a wide range of dessert ranging from their famous Shibuya Honey Toast, Nutella Toast to Molten Lava Cake. The signs in their store proudly proclaim that “There is always room for dessert”, a familiar line often mentioned by women who seem to have a separate stomach for desserts. =P
The first thing you would notice when you enter the café would probably be the queue. We had to wait 15-20 minutes for a table to enjoy our dessert. Nevertheless, everything’s worth it for a good dessert! *gleams*
The Shibuya Honey Toast (150 Baht), is truly a bunch of sweet, satisfying, melt in your mouth goodness! The honey toast is a big piece of oven roasted toast with layer of butter in between and on top with vanilla ice-cream and honey syrup. The toast was soft and fluffy and it pairs perfectly with the creamy and fragrant vanilla ice-cream. Total perfection!
Address: Siam Square
If you are shopping around the Siam area and need to stop by for lunch or dinner, SomTam Nua is the place to go. Some of their must-order dishes are their papaya salad, fried chicken wings, pork neck meat and fried fish. Be prepared to queue for some authentic North Eastern Thai food! I guarantee you won’t be disappointed
