Bangkok. The real capital of Thailand is Krungthepmahanakhon Amonrattanakosin Mahintharayutthaya Mahadilokphop Noppharatratchathaniburirom Udomratchaniwetmahasathan Amonphimanawatansathit Sakkathattiyawitsanukamprasit has a million charms. As long as the name was later abbreviated to Krung Thep by the local community. Which means ‘City of Angels.’ One of the attractions that will not be denied is culinary.
Thai cuisine is very rich indeed. Starting from traditional dishes filled with herbs, fresh seafood, to desserts that are rich in fruit. On a trip some time ago to Bangkok, my friends and I had the opportunity to try the taste of Thai cuisine which is guaranteed to destroy the diet plan. Not only that, my friends and I stayed at one of the hotels owned by Novotel in Samui, the Family Hotel Samui. Hotels owned by Novotel are indeed the best in Thailand, in addition to affordable prices, all Novotel hotels have complete facilities, it’s no wonder Novotel Hotels are our destination when we arrive in Thailand. Also, Novotel highlights a variety of delicious culinary dishes and has several cafes. Here is a list of 4 of my favorite restaurants and cafes in Bangkok.
1. Ko Dang Talay
This restaurant serves seafood located in the tourist area of the Asiatique river. The interior of the ship’s nuances is suitable to be visited at dinner so that we can simultaneously enjoy the view of the giant Ferris wheel bathed in neon shine.
Then, what must be ordered here? Many! For seafood enthusiasts, don’t miss the White Seabass Charcoal Grilled with Salted Crust, a white snapper that is burned with a crunch of crispy salt. Very delicious dipped in chili sauce. My favorite is, of course, Crab Curry, a mangrove crab sauteed in a yellow curry seasoning. I was so delicious, this menu immediately sold out brushed! Crispy Thai Oyster Omelette and Prawn Fried with Mung Bean Glass Noodles.
The first time I also tried fresh Oyster, which turned out to taste like sweet jelly. Very delicious! For Tom Yam Goong, in my opinion here is one of the best. Don’t forget the freshness of the Thai Tea too!
Ko Dang Talay – Asiatique The Riverfront (Warehouse 7), Bang Kho Laem, Bangkok 10120. Tel: +66 2 108 4498.
2. MK Restaurant
The restaurant that serves Thai sukiyaki dishes has many branches in Bangkok, one of which is at the Esplanade Shopping Mall. Just like most sukiyaki restaurants, we can order a variety of fresh seafood to be boiled. But, the special is the sauce or the sauce is certainly typical of Thailand. He said, anyway, including restaurants that are quite affordable. And don’t forget to also order the Peking Duck menu!
MK Restaurant – 99 Ratchadaphisek Rd, Khwaeng Din Daeng, Khet Din Daeng, Bangkok 10400.
3. Mango Tango
This mango-themed cafe is in the Siam Square area, but there are also two other branches in different locations. When we visited in the afternoon, the cafe was full. We barely got anywhere, sitting at the back end. The interior is very contemporary, with an industrial theme dominated by brick walls.
The main menu here is, of course, Mango Sticky Rice, but it is more special because it is served with mango ice cream and very soft mango pudding. The ice cream is also very delicious combined with the sticky rice.
Ice cream and pudding top!
Mango Tango – ถนน พระราม 1 Pathum Wan Rama 1rd, Siam Square Soi 3, Pathum Wan, Bangkok 10330.
4. After You Durian Room
When you are satisfied with mangoes, it’s time to switch to another fruit that is no less popular in Thailand. Especially if it’s not durian. This cafe is never empty, if you want to visit must be a reservation beforehand. If not, get ready for a long line. Following the slogan, “There is always room for dessert,” we also could not devour all the sweet and refreshing dishes here. Anyway, durian lovers must come here!
