Chapter 6: Food galore in Bangkok!
17 June 2014
So Bon was working half day today so the bestie and me ventured out on our own. We spent the morning having breakfast and going to the hair salon. Ok, I went to the hair salon to dye my hair, the bestie went to the opposite shop for a foot massage. I wish I had time to do foot massage too! Its so cheap and it lasts for an hour. Wow, we can never get this kind of good deal back home.
After we were done, we did some shopping. Since a majority of the thais are buddhists, these Buddha statues can be seem almost everywhere. Here are two located near The Central.
Apparently the people come here to pray for wealth and love.
Lunch at this restaurant that I cannot seem to pronounce or spell the name of the restaurant.
Our main dishes were average but I so love the eggplant dish! Ok I love eggplant but this dish was so delicious I think I finished half the plate when we were supposed to share it between the 3 of us. Lol.
We shopped for a while at Platinum because after all, today was our last chance to shop there. 2 days seemed too short, but then again its a good thing because I think the longer we are here, the more things we buy and the bigger the holes of our pockets will be.
We headed back to put down the things as usual. Its great that our hotel is pretty near Platinum, its so convenient especially when we get out of control when we shop there.
Time for dinner. We headed to Siam Paragon. If you are in Bangkok, Siam Paragon has a lot of restaurants and cafes that you can visit.
Bon recommended for us to come here for seafood dinner! Yay! We can never get enough of seafood!
Everything was so delicious. The soup of the claypot with the giant fish egg was the best soup I have ever tasted. It was sweet, sour and spicy all at the same time. The water mimosa vegetable that was in the soup was also so addictive. Wow. Truly amazing.
Fresh oysters!! Yum yum yum.
This is another mouth watering dish. This is my first time eating eggs with oysters fried together like this. Apart from egg and oysters, I do not know what other ingredients was used though. Bon was craving for this and the bestie loved this too. Can we have this dish in Singapore please?
Needless to say, we were pretty full after the meal. But the biggest surprise was the cost of the meal. After dividing by 4 people, we only paid S$16! It was so freaking cheap we could not believe it!
Looks like we will be coming back here again the next time we are in Bangkok.
No matter how full we are, there is always room for dessert! Bon and her friend brought us to Mango Tango, walking distance from Siam Paragon!
This is dessert shop that was not only mango themed, it has mango as the main ingredient in all their desserts! I almost thought that the mangoes hanging over our head were real mangoes. Lol.
We each tried different desserts so we could get a taste of everything.
Main dessert was called mango tango! It had a whole mango, ice cream and mango pudding. This dessert is like my dream dessert.
The bestie’s fruitty and ice cream combination. The mango flavoured ice cream tasted so refreshing. I absolutely love it.
It was so good I really thought I can finish everything even though I was still full from dinner.
Thank you for your time and your wonderful hospitality!!
Anyway I was happy to grab this green chilli sauce that tasted so good in the seafood restaurants that we ate in. I am bringing this one back to Singapore. Am I crazy to be this excited about chilli sauce?
We are leaving Bangkok tomorrow! I really thought that we spent too little time in Bangkok. There are so many nice food places to try but there was only so much we can eat in a day even though we ate too much.
Our flight is in the afternoon so that means that we could do our last eatingand shopping spree in the morning!!
