Cafe Velo Dome Bangkok

We were quite famished after spending hours at The Grand Palace in Bangkok and Cafe Velo Dome was the first place we saw that has a relaxing vibe.


Velo Dome regulars are mostly students from the Thammasat University. The cafe is walking distance from the Grand Palace entrance. Cafe Velo Dome has the cyclist in mind when it opened up the cafe. It encourages people to ride a bicycle.



Because it was so hot outside, we can't resist ordering ice-cream.


Mocha frost.


Coconut pudding. Similar to our maja blanca.


Thai Iced Tea.


Here's what I ate- ham and cheese sandwich and santol sorbet. I love the santol sorbet because it really tastes like santol and even has some fruit bits. It would've been nice if it comes with bagoong but I tasted some rock salt in the sorbet. At first, it tasted weird but after the initial shock that this sorbet tastes like a "real" santol fruit, I've fallen in love with it. Costs around 55 baht I think.


Vegetable salad.





Budget per pax here is between 100 - 200 baht.


P.S.
Thank you to Air Asia and Nikon Philippines / Think Dharma for inviting me to Bangkok. :)

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!

RECIPE: TKG's Brownie Balls with Cointreau Infused Cranberries

We may still be quarantined inside our homes but that doesn't mean we have to let go of our love for food. And if there's something positive that happened in our new normal, I'd say that most people (including me) have discovered the simple joys of spending more time in the kitchen. Here's my take on a classic brownie recipe made special with Cointreau.
