l'angolo caffe'


L'angolo caffe is a place which I stumbled on when I was first working around the corner from here and I have never looked back. It has the appearance of being a Western style cafe and it serves Western food and Western coffees



My choices have been many 



the toasted sandwich and more



but I always come back to the chicken salad - wonderful, I always want to ask them where the dressing comes from but it might spoil the experience so I never do.



Usually I have a smoothie with my lunch but sometimes they are a little filling - they do offer water for free.



Then there is a plethora of different coffees and this is something that I have never been disappointed in.




Whilst waiting for my lunch I usually sit watching the traffic outside and the many motorbikes going the wrong way - with a plethora of characters to share my lunch with.

Greyhound Cafe - Megabangna


Greyhound Cafe is a popular chain of restaurants that we stumbled upon whilst we were purchasing some furniture at Megabangna. Megabangna is an enormous complex of shops that is impossible to believe - it is said to be one of the biggest shopping malls in Asia.



We were starving and I was worried that we would not be served quickly but we were and the food was definitely worth it.



The restaurant was tastefully decorated and there was a simple Western menu. The food was wonderful - every little morsel which we had was great.



If I was at home I would have licked the plate...



Thought the side dish was funny.

Red Umbrella Cafe


Red Umbrella Cafe was a recent addition to the local restaurants near us. It was different in a number of ways.



We enjoyed having the Western food at Thai prices. I would have to add at this point thought that you may feel that the size of the dishes are small.



However the staff were all embracing for us and I am sure that this made the food taste even better.



I thought that it was a lovely idea - the paintings were a nice addition.



The cheese fries were very welcome whilst we waited for the main courses to arrive.

Dean and Deluca


Dean and Deluca are a company very large in Thailand and very popular - they sell more than just coffee but I have not been interested in anything else. But it does alway seem to be busy with mostly professionally dressed people?


On the corner of the roads and there is an outside seating and inside seating.


This cappuccino was (and always is) a pleasure to drink - it was strong and the chocolate was a beautiful accompaniment to go with the coffee.


There was not much of a selection if cakes though - had they all gone? I must return to have a look at what there could be...

Cafe 8 afternoon - desert cafe


This was a place that we chose to go to because Swensen's was closed.



It is a different type of Cafe than I normally visit - this is a desert cafe. And guess what they specialize in... This was more than just this though - they did sell food as well and I believe it to be Korean? But we only chose deserts.



Mango



Chocolate Oreo (after we had eaten most of it)



But I am not sure what it is made of - I should really find out - but they do taste good.

Top of the Reef



Top of the Reef is a fine dining restaurant situated inside the Cape Panwa Hotel and Spa at the South end of Phuket.


There has not been many changes since I first visited and this has led to some of it's charm. If you are looking for something changing then this is not it.


There have been some small changes with regards to the menu but generally if you look at the images on the links below there was not.


But we certainly enjoyed our dinners again...

Riceberry


Riceberry is somewhere which we came across because it was between the King Rama 9 park and the Weekend market in Phuket Town.



Well it never seems to be very busy at all when we visit - maybe it is waiting for the rest of the road (Hong Yok) to be busy. The restaurant seems to be based on a Western style with proper chairs and tables.



Jemma likes the fish and chips here.



The Thai food is always tasty and 





there are some more interesting dishes to choose from.



The deep fried bananas is always something to share at the end of the meal.

Central Food Loft


Central Food Loft is on the top floor of a popular shopping mall - Central Chidlom. It is tastefully organized and there are a great number of choices for you - from Asian food to French mussels.


You take a card when you enter and then give the card to each cooking station and they add on what you have received - much like a traditional food mall but I would imagine that this description would not be well received.



It is a wonderful spot to escape from the hustle and bustle of the streets of Bangkok - the service was exemplary and the air-conditioning was welcoming.


However if you are looking for some delicious food then it was not what we found - but if you are looking for a 'trendy and upmarket dining concept' - then this is successful.


The cakes were very nice though.
