After Lunch at Foodloft, we headed down to another shopping center. It is called Emporium and located in Sukhumvit Rd. We took the MRT to Emporium from Central Chitlom, the station is called Phrom Phong, it is four station away from Chitlom. Emporium is a very upscale complex with international brand names such as Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Hermes and a range of other speciality store. We like the complex very much. After a few hours of window shopping (can't afford to buy anything here, hehe), yes, we are hungry again. We wanted to look for some delicious food in this complex for our tea time. We pass by a very special cafe, the enviroment is nice and looks high-class. It is sort of a designer cafe. We decided to give it a try since we are here. The cafe is called Greyhound Cafe.
We did not order much, cos is a tea time meal and later at night we are going for Bangkok famous seafood restaurant (will be post in next episode).
Picture above is the Greyhound Cafe sign. The text says "We love fashion, we love watching people, we love sitting at a cafe and watch The World goes by, we love good food, we love art, we love good living, we love to travel and try new tastes..... That's why in this menu you will find the delectable array of Thai as well as international dishes that we love. Like what the cover says, Life is a journey, full of stories, places and good recipes. We discovered many of these dishes and recipes on the journeys we made in our lives, many of them we grew up with, they are our favourite treats cooked by our moms, and even our grandmothers. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do, or as they say in Thailand "Tan hai aroi na" Bon Appetite"
Iced Lemon Tea, It was really nice, not too sweet or too sour, just nice to drink after a long walk in the complex. One thing special about this iced lemon tea is that the ice used was also made from lemon tea.So when the ice melt, it doesnt effect the original taste of the iced lemon tea. Good Idea, we like it.
Strawberry smoothie, fresh strawberry blended with ice and other juice (not sure what they mix). A very refreshing drinks, suitable for tea time. Can really taste the strawberry.
This is their in house speciality, cant really remember what is the name. The dish is suitable for 2 person sharing as it is served in a big portion. In the picture you can see that there are several different things. On the top, in a bowl is mince pork cooked in soya sauce. On the left, is blended chili padi with garlic, spicy. On the right, is fresh cabbage and on the bottom is Hor Fan (bigger piece of kuey Teow). First of all, u will need to take a cabbage, then place a slice of Hor fan on top, then add some mince pork, then add the chili and garlic. After that, wrap the whole thing and finally put into your mouth and chew!!It tasted really really nice. We rate this dish 9/10. Is a must try dish if you happent to go greyhound.
For dessert, we ordered a mocha cake and ruby water chestnut with coconut slice. The cake had a soft texture so it is very nice, not too creamy and not too sweet. The water chestnut definitely is the best, you can feel the crispy, refreshing and the fragrant of the water chestnut. the water chestnut is cut into small cube and wrap with a layer of red jelly like texture. Very nice.
