On Location!!! - Bangkok, Thailand - Episode 3

Second day in Bangkok. Have breakfast buffet in the hotel. Nothing worth posting here. After Breakfast headed to Central Chitlom. Central Chitlom is a very famous shopping center in Bangkok. It is a very big shopping complex, we think its 7 or 8 floors. A fren of had already reminded us that Central Chitlom is a must go place before we leave Bangkok, there is also a very nice restaurant on the top floor called FoodLoft. We shopped from one floor to another. After a couple of hours, we reach the top floor. Found the restaurant called FoodLoft. In the sign board it says: FoodLoft, the trendy & upscale international dining concept. The restaurant was like a foodcourt that have lots of different stalls selling different types of food. It has western, thai, chinese many many others. The enviroment was very nice and high class, we liked the look of it so we decide to have lunch there.

Upon entering the FoodLoft, each person is given a tag, you will have to used the tag when you purchase food. The stall seller will scan the barcode on the tag when you place an order from them, and before you leave the restaurant, you pass the card to the cashier and pay. This system is very good idea. It is much better than those food courts where you have to purchase coupons, and later have to change remaining coupons back for cash.

The food is very very nice, they serve it in a very beg portion and the price is not expensive at all.

The above picture is the Foodloft logo.

BBQ pork set meal (above picture). The set meal came with a plate of BBQ Pork, a portion of rice, a papaya salad (very famous in Thailand, as mention in earlier post) and some fresh vegetables. The BBQ pork comes with a dipping sauce. The sauce taste a bit spicy, sour and salty. Goes very well with the pork and the fresh vege. Overall, this BBQ pork set meal is a throughly enjoyable dish.

The above picture is Oversize Pizza. The pizza is really really big. The two slices shown in the picture is about equal to half a large pizza from Pizza Hut. One of the slices is Ham with mushroom and the other is sausage pizza. Tasted not bad.

Thai style fried Kuey Teow. This fried kuey teow taste very nice. It is different from Penang's style. It is spcier than those that you get in Penang. It tasted spicy, sour and sweet. A highly recommend dish tothose who visit Thailand.

Large German Sausage. Dont know why this is called sausage, isnt sausage suppose to be round and long? But it taste nice, you can really taste the pork meat.

Roasted Pork Skin and mini buns (top picture). This is the best part of the lunch and also probably the best dishes in Foodloft. We strongly recommend this roasted pork skin. The roasted pork skin is very crispy and you can feel the fat under the skin melt in your mouth. The mini buns was serve to eat with the pork skin.
Yeap, you are right, that bottom picture is the pig's ear. With the dip, it taste better. Surely you can't find a nicer roasted pork in Malaysia. We rate this dish a 9 out of 10.

We ended the meal with Mango sticky rice. This is probably Thailand's most famous desert. The small container at the side, is coconut milk. The mango is very juicy and sweet. It goes well with the coconut milk and sticky rice.

Makan Kings ratings 8.5 out of 10

Gee, I can't really remember Central Chitlom, I know I went to Central but there are so many in town.

This foodloft place sounds like BKK's version of Marche. I love the mango sticky rice stuff. Yum!

From my experience of Bangkok trip. I think that looking for accommodation around Sukhumvit are is the good idea because Sukhunvit is in the heart of the shopping district, both in terms of large department stores and the various stalls lining both sides of the road. The various side-streets provide a proliferation of nightlife venues. For the renowned and well-known spots, you will need to walk onwards past the Asok crossroads to Sukhumvit Soi 21 or Soi Cowboy. This area also offers a wide selection of cuisine to choose from, both in terms of air-conditioned high-end restaurants and open air restaurants offering quite reasonable prices.
