The Coffee Club

The coffee club is Australia’s largest home-grown cafe group with many branches in Bangkok. The cafe I visited was at the Citadines hotel on Sukhumvit Soi 23, which was the closest to my hotel. The cafe is spacious with indoor and outdoor seatings. This all-day cafe serves a good mix of Western and Thai dishes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. There are also unique drinks on the menu, such as Tim Tam chocolate, coconut frappe, and marshmallow Cappuccino.

I ordered a Cappuccino and smashed avocado with poached eggs and hashbrown. The Cappuccino was good, the milk foam was smooth, and the coffee was quite strong. The smashed avocado was beautifully plated. The poached egg cooked perfectly. The hashbrown was crispy on the outside and soft on the inside – a healthy breakfast.

Everything on the menu looked enticing, I wished I had more time to try them all!

Cappuccino – 130 baht

Smash Avocado – 280 baht

Hashbrown – 60 baht

Clinton St.Baking Company & Restaurant

I love chicken and waffles. When I found out that there is an American restaurant serving chicken and waffles in Bangkok, I had to try it!

Clinton St.Baking company and restaurant is founded by chef-husband & wife, Neil Kleinberg, and DeDe Lahman, located in New York. The branch in Bangkok is located on the ground floor of Siam Paragon, one of Bangkok’s biggest mall. It serves a variety of American comfort food such as pancakes, burgers, sandwiches, waffles, and etc.

I ordered a mushroom cream soup, chicken and waffles, and chocolate milkshake.

The soup was rich and creamy with nutty notes from the truffle oil; however, the consistency was a little too thick.

The waffle was a little dry and seemed a little undercooked; the texture was chewy. The fried chicken was crispy and juicy. What I didn’t like was the texture of the crust, it was coarse and lack flavor.

The chocolate milkshake was rich, creamy, and decadent.

Although I was disappointed with the chicken and waffles, I would give this place another chance.

Chicken and waffles – 340 baht

Mushroom cream soup – 180 baht

Chocolate milkshake – 160 baht

Fisherman’s village Bophut

Fisherman’s village is a walking street with cafes, restaurants, and boutique stores in the town of Bophut.

I had lunch at two restaurants – happy elephant and Krua Baan Khaow. I ordered the same food in both restaurants except for the salad. The food in both restaurants was good. Overall experience, I prefer Krua Baan Khaow. Happy elephant is more pricey and popular amongst tourists. The decor and atmosphere in Krua Baan Khaow feel more authentic, the food tastes homey, and best of all, the price is reasonable. Good value for money.

Coffee bar at the Nordic Design Home

 

This coffee bar is located within the Nordic Design Home furniture shop. It is about a 15-minute walk from the old town. Both indoor and outdoor seatings are available, however, there are only four tables inside. It was raining when I visited the cafe and all four tables were occupied. Luckily, one customer left a few minutes after my arrival. I love the contemporary setting and dark color tones of the cafe. The floor to ceiling windows was aesthetically pleasing.

The cafe offers a variety of specialty coffee, hot sandwiches, and pastries. They also use Rocket Bean Roastery’s coffee beans which is the biggest specialty coffee roaster in Latvia.

The cappuccino was bold and full-bodied. The Reuben sandwich was divine! Sourdough bread paired with delicious melted cheese accompanied by creamy sweet dressing, sauerkraut, and corned beef. The outer crust had an amazing crunch. It’s like a grilled cheese sandwich with a punch.

The Nordic Design home coffee bar is definitely worth a trip!

Cappuccino €3

Reuben sandwich €6
