After You Dessert Cafe

Visiting Bangkok, we really felt pampered with the myriad choices of cafe. The quality of the cafes here are absolutely delicious, taste and ambience-wise. Near where we stayed, Silom area, we decided to have a quick dessert at Silom Complex, and decided to try out After You Dessert Cafe. When in doubt, follow the "Crowd" or the "Queue." 

I must say that we were very impressed with the cafes here so far. It felt very polished in terms of menu, quality of food and the interior, with a much more affordable price. We ordered their Signature dessert, the Chocolate Mud Pie, which is sinfully delicious with those chocolate goodness and Ice Cream, and we had some hot beverages to go along with it, all package in a super-duper chic presentation. And also did I mentioned that I just adore their tagline "There's always room for dessert"?

On the Table | Tokyo Cafe



Visiting Bangkok is incomplete without dropping by to Siam Centre. Located right at the doorstep of Siam BTS Station (the train station). It houses the most popular shopping centres in Bangkok. As what we recently read on the news that Siam Paragon had the most instagram place check-in in the world, not the Eiffel Tower nor the Times Square but a shopping centre. Connected to Siam Paragon is a much smaller shopping centre called Siam Centre. It had many boutiques and cafes with impressive visual merchandising. For a design enthusiast such as myself, it is like walking in a dream, straight out of the glossy interior design magazine.

Feeling slightly nostalgic of Japan, we decided to drop by at On the Table, Tokyo Cafe for some desserts, Strawberry Parfait and Ice Cream. If you are into Japanese Cafes food presentation, this is the right cafe to go and their dessert is as good as it is cute.

Last December I have the chance to visit Bangkok for the first time. Riots aside, in December the area effected was the Parliament area, making most tourist unable to visit the historical and cultural area that Thailand is famous for. Therefore my travel companion decided to do shopping and cafe hopping instead. We stayed at around Silom station, at Glow Trinity Silom Hotel by Zinc, just a few stops away from Siam station. It is very easy to get around Bangkok with the BTS, their train system. Accommodation or hotel prices in Bangkok is fairly affordable and food is relatively cheap.

Bangkok is bustling with art and creativity, it is visible from the numerous shops from a small simple stall at the market to a chic boutique in the mall the originality and creativity never fails to impress! Gorgeous cafes can be found throughout the city. One of my favourite cafe is the Rocket Coffee Bar, located in the midst of residential area, it is a perfect escape from the mall for brunch. They have outdoor and indoor sitting area, with a cosy and chic ambience. Founded by Dannie Sorum, of a Swedish origin, the cafes offers great food and great setting. 

We ordered Strawberry Waffle, Egg Benedict, some pastry, and Smoked Salmon, every single dish that we ordered is absolutely delicious and I will definitely drop by to this gorgeous cafe again when I am in town.
