Thailand - Where to eat in Bangkok

Where to eat in Bangkok

Bangkok is one of my favorite city in the world! I will always find time to go once a year to immerse myself in shopping and eating~

Below is the list of restaurants/cafes I have been for the past frequent visits to Bangkok. I hope this list will continue as long as possible.

1) Road side

We rarely see temporary roadside food stall in Singapore already. The only one left is the ice cream tricycle stall which we usually see at Orchard or Bugis.

Roadside stalls usually sell relatively cheaper but definitely less hygienic than fixed stalls. Nevertheless, still a YAY!

I would label Bangkok as Fruits City. They always have fruit sellers everywhere you go. Fruit juice is always the savior under the forever-hot-weather. Prices are usually around 20-40 baht.

Can I have one mango sticky rice without coconut milk pls~

Packets & packets of varieties of fruits

Kaya pancakes

Mini pancake roll up with yam/kaya/pineapple fillings

Grilled chicken! This is my favorite! As we were strolling around "What The Food" bazaar outside Central World and we were attracted to this stall by its smell.

 I chose the smallest size. Although this is very unhealthy, but it was damn yummy! ~50baht

 Eggs and chicken croissants.  ~180baht

2) Mango Tango

Mango is my second favourite fruit after durian.

They have many varieties of mango products - fruits, ice cream, pudding, smoothies and etc.
I still think roadside traditional mango sticky rice is nicer hehe

3) After You

They have a very raving review from Bangkok to Singapore.

Their shibuya honey toast was the most famous item. Order the mini size one because the regular size is big even for 2 people.

I particularly like their coffee -

Go during off peak hours or less popular branch otherwise you might be queuing for 1-2 hours.

Hot peppermint 105baht

Baby matcha toast 175baht


After You


I am very thankful to my friend's recommendation on this Japanese restaurant. This Japanese-Western fusion restaurant offers very creative and appealing sushi rolls (like "Jackie" sushi roll which looks like a caterpillar).



5) Mr. Jones' Orphanage

10) Cabbages and Condoms Restaurant

I was googling "theme restaurant in Bangkok" and this came up on the first page. I thought it will be a weird and exclusive kind of restaurant. Yes, it was quite a weird experience where you see condoms as decoration all over the restaurant - the lamps, the costumes on mannequins and even as a thank you gift with your bill.

11) MIX

We visited MIX restaurant at Terminal 21 mall on my last day in Bangkok. We wanted to have one last local meal before we heading to the airport hence we went in without much hesitation and it turned out an unforgettable experience for us. We over ordered because everything in the menu looked very delicious to us.

13) Zense Gourmet Deck & Lounge Panorama

This is considered one of the cheapest rooftop restaurants as we did not want to spurge our money on expensive food.

This is located at Central World mall and has great sunset view as well as the traffic view around Siam shopping areas.

Go around sunset timing to maximize the lovely stay.

My favorite soup - lobster bisque

Zense Gourmet Deck & Lounge Panorama

14) Capri

I am normally quite picky on ink spaghetti but this totally hit on my taste bud. I like their al fresco dining area facing the sea while enjoying their live band.

15) The Best of Boat Noodles

This has been one of my lists to try and I have finally tried it after so long. The place is not easy to find so make sure you have Googlemap with you.

Believe it or not, one bowl cost only 10baht! Thick noodle soup with pork/beef. The  soup tasted like they put some herb in the soup that made it very tasty.
