Magnum Cafe at Siam Center
Let's start with the most delicious "meal" I had: a Birthday boum at Magnum Cafe. It's a strawberry pavlova with vanilla Magnum ice cream. The waiter served it by releasing a noisy sweet confetti cracker to sprinkle the dessert, hence the "boum".
Food Republic at Siam Center
I love food courts. Maybe because we don't have any in Luxembourg. Of course it took me ages to decide on a stand at Siam Center's Food Republic. In the end I got a spicy prawn curry with rice and a mango lassi. The drink was too sweet but the curry tasted fantastic.
Mr. Jones' Orphanage at Siam Center
Don't let yourself be seduced by the cute teddy bears hanging all over the ceiling; the place looks really good but my dry Oreo Pizza (oreos in a meringue sandwich) and the very sugary strawberry smoothie were both a disappointment.
Fuji at Siam Paragon
A very busy Japanese restaurant with a nice setting and good food. I had a wakame salad, prawn tempura and tuna maki. The only thing that irked me was that the rice in the maki rolls was warm.
Viva Garden Residence room service
When I arrived at my hotel I was tired and didn't want to go out for dinner so I ordered room service. I like Pad Thai and I truly enjoyed this one.
Phan Khom at Central World Plaza
The moment I sat down, I knew that it had been a bad choice. The waiting staff was the most unenthusiastic I've ever experienced. And when you serve the main course before the starter, no, really. I had Pad Thai (again) which was good but that was the only positive about this restaurant. Also I can't stand it when waiters are looking at you while you eat. Just not pleasant.
Erawan Tea Room (Grand Hyatt)
I ordered two dishes when one would have been enough. I had fried tofu with cashew nuts and a vegetable curry. I stumbled upon this place by coincidence and I was very impressed by the nice setting and the selection on the menu. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
I also confess that I ate at McDonald's a couple of times. I only ever do that in desperate situations: I am starving and there is no better option around. Whilst some advised that I try the street food, I just could not bring myself to do it.
