Sainom's (Paseo Town) closed

Sainom's is a Desert Cafe on the second floor at Paseo Town - similar to After You but cheaper but not the coffee.

You certainly do not come here if you are looking to lose some weight...

I am not sure about the the bread underneath this one.

And then the cornflakes on this - but I did not try these...

CHATA speciality coffee

CHATA speciality coffee was somewhere that I stumbled upon when I was looking for some brief respite from the chaos of the Chinese New Year Festival. And what a surprise it was!

It was what seemed like a home with a coffee shop behind it. The entrance was simply organised and I briefly thought that I was somewhere in Europe.

Especially with the floor tiles and the chess set...

The Cafe was actually at the back and down the side of the house - a bit puzzling but I did not care. BUT then I read that the house was a hotel - Baan 2459. And this was a beautiful place to stay, another time...

Never mind I went for a coffee - but chose not to sit inside.

Sitting at the front of the house it all felt a bit 'colonial' - a green lawn, a chess set, a gramophone (with a digital speaker below) 

and then the bicycle.

There seemed to be a lot more here than I first thought - so I would have to return

Mae Sri Ruan - ก๋วยเตี๋ยวไก่แม่ศรีเรือน

Mae Sri Ruan - ก๋วยเตี๋ยวไก่แม่ศรีเรือน - is somewhere which we have visited a number of times and unfortunately there is very little that I can find out about it. 

It is a large restaurant with an inside an outside. It seems to cater for predominantly Thai people - but this usually make the food more tasty...

It was delicious - these delicious morsels - take a leaf and fill it with the bits are mind blowing (I will add the name later).

Then the Sakoo Sai Mai - were a beautiful compliment - we had to ask for more.

To top it all the drink was served with frozen ice in the glass already and the bottle on the side.

My daughter was happy with the fried chicken - although I did not try them.

Then a bowl of something. The coffee out the front wasn't bad either.

Coffee Beans by Dao - Central World

Coffee Beans by Dao is somewhere that I visited for a coffee and a cake - and I would certainly visit again. 

This outlet was in Central World, just around the corner from work. But it is not somewhere which you can pop in for a coffee and cake - unless it isn't busy - it was busy with people for lunch. Next time might be time for lunch?

Well the coffee was very nice but the cakes were wonderful 
- mind glowingly so...

Street Food in Bangkok

selection of fruit drinks
Street Food in Bangkok is everywhere and it would be criminal if you did not try some whilst you were in Bangkok - found a guide recently - off tourist radar street food spots in Bangkok. Found an App for Street food in Bangkok as well.

northern sausages?
In reality street food is everywhere BUT be careful on a Monday as this is the street cleaning day so they are not always set up on the street.

what is this?
But sometimes I am not so sure.

The colors are too much like a child's painting sometimes.

There is always a lot of fruit around to choose from.

But this one is wonderful - with the sugar and chili mix to have with it - this is custard apple (I think).

L'angolo Caffe

L'angolo Caffe is close to where I work so this is a popular place for me to go and have a leisurely lunch. 

There are a number of choices to have and the choices are over the bar.

But I invariably have the chicken salad - which I liked so much that I had to ask what dressing was put on it - and he was able to tell me.

Then there is the toasted cheese sandwich which is simply scrumptious.

I usually match this with a fruit shake as well.

With my 'Quote of the Day'.

Phra Nakorn Boat Noodle - ก๋วยเตี๋ยวเรือพระนคร

I got out of a bus and suddenly needed something to eat - as soon as possible. I was near the Victory Monument and there were a great number of small places scattered around to find.  

I followed the street art on the walls and saw a very busy noodle shop - a lot of students - couldn't see much of a menu but I was hungry, so I just pointed - and it was amazing!!!

The noodles were simply the best that I had ever had. Amazing - writing this I realized that I need to go back as soon as possible....

The Coffee Club - Lumpini Park

The Coffee Club is a brand of Cafe that is popular in Bangkok and I have popped into many. 

They have been in Australia since 1989 and we like going in them when we are there.

And this one was a great location after I had visited Lumpini Park.
