Wine Connection Bistro (Paseo Ramkamhaeng)



The Wine Connection Bistro is a popular restaurant chain around Thailand and we do keep going back to it.  
We had visited Wine Connection in Phuket a number of times and were very happy - so when there was an opportunity to visit one in Bangkok we were sure to go. 

If you have visited a Wine Connection you would recognize that they are a Thai food chain  

"Wine Connection is the leading chain of wine shops and wine-themed restaurants in South-East Asia. Established in 1998, Wine Connection has been developing expertise in wine for over 19 years."

So what do we have? The same thing basically all the time - we are not very adventurous here.



A salad...



Chunky Chips...



A pizza...




The wine may on a special...

In fact it is almost like being in Europe all over again - so if that is what you are looking for then this is certainly it - not as expensive as I thought...

First Cup Coffee


This was a cup of coffee that I chose to have because I was too early for Tesco Home Pro at Vanit Place - adjacent to the SkytrainAnd what a pleasure it was - apart from the plastic cup being so hot.




Then there was the Danish and the Wasabi peanuts - a place that I would visit again.



Whoops - the coffee was strong and freshly made, I would pop in on the way out of the Skytrain again...


Approximate Price: $$$$$
Address:  Wave Place - opposite front to Tesco Home Pro

Noodles House


Noodles House was a wonderful visit for me - the duck was beautiful - we returned again shortly. The restaurant itself is small and we almost missed it because it looked like a laundry because of the ironing at the back. Once we understood that this was the right place to go we saw the big sign - how could we miss that?



It is clearly a place that primarily the locals go - BUT happily the menu was in English as well.



The duck looked great. 



We had noodles with the duck



and we had it with the rice - both were wonderful.  Looking for some authentic duck dishes? Visit here.

Cafe at Ease


I visited here after a wonderful escape into a completely different world of Bangkok - the house which Jim Thompson lived in whilst he was here.




The coffee shop is on the road leading to here and I stopped here on the way back - happily finding that it was cheaper than Starbucks.



The design was clearly modern with white tables and red roses for your coffee stop.



With the ambience that was created when I walked in - and then choosing not to sit in the air-conditioning it was a pleasant experience. And the coffee was strong but not bitter so I needed to add only a little sugar.



I would visit again if I was in the area...
