Food is essential to us and when you are in a foreign land, you either go out and eat their local food or stick to international fast food a.k.a. McDonald’s (Ha!Ha!). I am not normally adventurous (if I travel alone) when it comes to eating local food as I’m afraid I might get an upset stomach. But thanks to a colleague who recommended good places to eat, I was able to do so in Bangkok. From tom yum soup, Phad Thai, pineapple fried rice in restaurants or food halls to eating noodles in a hole in the wall kind of place.
Some places around Siam Square you should try:
1. Inter Restaurant – they offer inexpensive but very good food. It’s not a high end resto but who cares if the food is really good? I tried the pineapple fried rice with stir fried shrimps. So yum! I actually finished the whole serving. Talk about gluttony!😄😝 Oh well, at less than 300 baht I had a Happy Tummy! My pictures are unedited and not photoshopped so pardon the mess! Get lost in translation though in this resto because the staff aren’t so good in speaking or communicating in English. Just point what you like! 😜
Address: 432/1-2 Siam Square 9, 10330, Bangkok, Thailand
2. See Fah – I tried the Shrimp Cake and Phad Thai and it’s really good. Too bad I can only eat one meal in this resto and can’t try everything but I’m sure the other food in the menu are all good. Especially if the place is well recommended. 😊
Address: 434-440 Siam Square 9, Rama 1 Road, 10330 Bangkok, Thailand
3. White Flower Factory – the ambiance of the place alone was already worth it. Tried this with my colleague and the food did not disappoint!😋
Address: 4/F Siam Square One, Pathum Wan, Bangkok
4. Coffee Beans by Dao – if you’re taking a break from eating Thai food, this place offers western style food. And it’s delicious! I tried this place in Siam Paragon’s food hall located at the basement of the mall.
The desserts at this place is to die for. If only I can bring it all home I will. I just tried one of their best seller. Bought a slice and brought it back to the hotel to eat. 😅
What I haven’t tried in Siam Square area was the After You Cafe due to lack of time. But, it’s something to look forward to when I go back for a visit. Hopefully with family and for vacation!😄
That’s all for now. The next post will be the food adventures outside Siam Square area. 😊
