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. :)

Bo-Bangkok!

Going to Bangkok is not complete if you haven't tried their famous Thai Milk Tea which are sold on the streets for 20 baht. It's not really hard to find a milk tea seller because there always seem to be one nearby.

Nanyang: A Kopi Tiam in High Street

Kopi tiam is a traditional coffeeshop that is popular in Singapore. Aside from breakfast, kopi tiam or kopitams is also a popular place for lunch and snacks because of it serves Singaporean comfort food favorites such as laksa and nasi lemak. Of course, a kopi tiam won't be complete without coffee and kaya toast pairing.

Nanyang opened in Bonifacio High Street to satisfy that craving for authentic Singaporean noms even without a plane ticket.
