Food I Ate During My Bangkok Trip

Posted by : foongpc | Tuesday, January 18, 2011 | Published in


I had just came back from my wonderful Manila trip and I wanted so much to blog about it, but I think I had better finish blogging about my Bangkok trip first. Not to forget I still have not started blogging about my Cambodia trip last year! Gosh!!

You have probably read about the sticky rice with durians and the Jeffer steaks I ate in Bangkok. If not, do click on the links and read them. If you ever go Bangkok, you must try these wonderful food!

Today, I will blog about the rest of the food I ate in Bangkok. I shall start with the buffet breakfast I had in Dusit Thani Hotel where I stayed.

I did not take many photos actually (too lazy!) so I would just show some of them.

Clockwise from top : Pancake with maple syrup, hashbrown, egg benedict and grilled tomatoes.

I like the egg benedict! It is actually made up of bread, ham and eggs with yolk running. Delicious!

Sushi, tamago, dim sum, bao.

Assorted fruits with cereals

Fresh fruits

OK, there were many more food but I just did not bother to take pictures of them! I would say the breakfast at Dusit Thani was just OK. Not too impressive but I was quite happy with it.

I had tom yam goong at Black Canyon Coffee, a popular restaurant in Bangkok. It was delicious!

The prawns were fresh and the taste superb! And it was not that spicy which I liked.

OK, I even had some Korean food in Bangkok.

Not sure what is the name for this set but I totally enjoyed it!

Remember the Food Court in MBK Shopping Centre where I ate the delicious sticky rice with durians? Well, there were many more stalls there selling all types of food!

One of the food I tried there were the famous Thai food called som tum.

It's a spicy salad made from unripened papaya, mixed with lime, chili, nuts, beans, tomatoes, garlic, shrimp and fish sauce.

This one which I ordered was really spicy and I had to down a bottle of cold water after eating it!

There was a stall in the food court selling shark's fin.

It's called F-1 Shark's Fin. The shark's fin dish was selling at 150 baht (RM15) which I thought was quite cheap!

Look at this big piece of shark's fin! OK I know I am not supposed to be eating shark's fin but I just wanted to see how the 150 baht dish turned out.

It was actually not too bad!

By the way, I noticed that the food court had boiling water next to the utensils for you to disinfect the spoons and forks.

I wonder why our food courts here in Malaysia do not have similar facilities? Or do we have them and I am not aware of it?

    If our food court had boiling water as what you see in BKK, the price for a cup of coffee will increase by another 20 sen.

    I was welcomed with the upgrate to a suite what was a really great room. All was clean and proper. Very fast check in. I am just surprised that such a good place and such a good guides they have,I highly suggest all tours and transfers by We visited here to celebrate my sons 8th Birthday, and I would usually not do this sort of thing because I am a little scared of heights, but wow, what fun!! The staff were great and very careful about safety. I was assured that I would not break the zip line, and it could hold a lot of weight and it certainly looked sturdy. At some points the zipline went about 30 meters and was incredibly high, you couldn't help but scream. I highly recommend this adventure, it's fun and in a beautiful area, and the staff are friendly and reassuring.

    Apart from the above mentioned it is the colours of its festivals, sounds of its splendid natural wealth and the taste of its exceptionally delectable food that makes tours to Thailand so special. Apart from all these there are many other favored destinations like Koh Chang, Phuket, Pattaya, Koh Samet, etc.
