Bangkok's Food and Drink 101

How I miss Bangkok? The food, especially. It was not my first time visiting the city, and I ended up going back to the same restaurants mostly because I wanted to try the authentic thai food. However there were some changes when I last visited Bangkok. I managed to go to two new restaurants, which I will feed you all with more visuals later.

#1 Roast Coffee and Eatery
Located in hip-and-happening Thong Lo, everything here is perfect except for the part of getting there which is not accessible by train. We took a cab here. Its unique brunch menu with great ambience is definitely worth to pay a visit. I had their famous Crab Cake Benedict. Poaches egg and Hollandaise sauce makes every bite dreamy. My foodie partner tried its Cassoulet. I didn’t even bother to try his because mine was too good, lol. How would we possibly not order desserts since we have come so far? Knowing we couldn’t finish two desserts, but we insisted to order both raspberry tiramisu and chocolate soufflĂ©. Both taste so goooood!

#2 Vesper Cocktail Bar and Restaurant
Known for its unique cocktail, we found an excuse to drink during dinner. Located in the heart of Silom, Vesper offers authentic Italian and Spanish dishes. We ordered Pulpo Galicia (roasted giant octopus), risotto with white truffle goodness and Wagyu steak for sharing. Everything was fine, but the early grey cocktail was the boom. They called it Secret Earl Grey where the earl grey-infused gin was served with clove water over dry ice. Too cool!

#3 Maggie Choo’s
The hidden gem where you enjoy the latest and greatest nightlife venue in Bangkok. Boyfriend and I just thought we should pop by after dinner, and the place was all packed with no seats available. I will recommended you guys to make a reservation before you come as they have rooms designed like ancient China dynasty theme and you can chill and drink with your friends while watching the ladies in Chinese gowns hanging on swings or cage or and enjoying the live bands playing. 

I want Bangkok now, who's up to travel with me?
