First trip of 2015 for the US. Tally and I went to our favorite and must visit country. Bangkok (BKK) aka the land of smiles. Always wonder what an appropriate “land of smiles”. We are always smiling even to sleep. Every year we are always amaze by what we see, try and carry back. Our baggage increase as the years goes. Seriously we better exercise some self control. 🙂
When it comes to BKK, there’s always so much to share. Tonnes of places flow through our minds. So many to cover in such short period. This is also a reason why our stay in BKK is getting longer each time. We usually spend a week there so that we will not have too hectic events planned thru the whole day there. Everyone knows where to shop or eat in BKK. However, there are still places that I would like to mentioned as I feel its a worth to try or go if you have not been there.
1) Hokkaido Milk
To those who know me will know this is a rare item on my recommended list. This is Tally’s favorite. Like a baby, he must have his DAILY dose of Hokkaido milk. He personally recommends the Ceylon Tea and Chocolate flavors. Knowing him, I bet its must be such yummy milk to make him MUST drink every trip we are in BKK.
This is a chain of milk outlets. Common or easy to spot them at Siam Paragon Basement or Terminal 21 basement. All just outside the supermarket checkout counters.
2) Four Seasons at Paragon
This is a yummy Roast duck place that can be found easily at Siam Paragon. They are known as the Roast Duck Specialist.The name alone will tell you what is their main selling dish. We had our meals few times there. We honestly like the Roast Duck. In addition, they have few dishes that you can try too. Some pictures to make all drool.
The mouth watering meats…
This is a new found love. I read about this eclair booth that we made a trip down to grab some and try. The first sight while we reach the counter at Terminal 21. The eclairs are just too pretty to be eaten. Are you sure they for consumption? next thoughts, are pretty things yummy too? The answer after we sink our teeth into the first eclair. ooooohhhhhh.. they are lovely. I am not a fan of eclairs in SIngapore as most of them are made of whipped cream. This is totally different. I tried the one with chocolate cream. Wooo.. they are simply lovely.
4) Soi 19 wanton mee
Our usual MUST eat. Ask me what so good? It just do not feel right if we came BKK and gave the wanton mee a missed. This year the wanton mee Q shocked us. In the past, you will never see such long queue outside the shop. Time change, through the powerful media, everyone hears/read/sighted where the famous wanton mee is. So there the Q. 🙂
I will be back for part 2 to share some cafes we tried and yummy dessert and a onsen spa place. Stay tuned to this space.
