Thailand Food – Fai Sor Kam @ Siam Paragon

Category : Thailand Bangkok

Walking around Siam Paragon and undecided on where to go for lunch, we found ourselves in front of Fai Sor Kam @ Siam Paragon.

Well, what caught our attention was Fai Sor Kam’s Special Lunch Sets banner.

Fai Sor Kam is an East meets West Restaurant, combining Thai & Italian Food.

Their Special Lunch Sets are going for THB150++ on Monday – Friday (Except Public Holidays) from 10:30am to 4:30pm.

And THB220++ on Monday – Friday from 4:31pm to 9:30pm, and Saturday, Sunday & Public Holiday from 10am to 9:30pm.

The Thai Herbal Drinks that came with the Special Lunch Sets were served while we were taking photos of the numerous lanterns hanging from Fai Sor Kam’s ceiling.

Here’s a few shots of me trying to be artistic 😛

As for Fai Sor Kam’s Thai Herbal Drinks: Lemongrass Juice and Roselle Juice, they weren’t very nice.

Back to our main courses, here’s our 1st set, Fai Sor Kam’s Deep-Fried Shrimps with Garlic, Fried Egg, Tofu Clear Soup and Jasmine Rice.

It was pretty average. Nothing to critic, and nothing to rave about.

But Fai Sor Kam’s Fried Shrimp Cakes in the 2nd set, Chicken Green Curry, Fried Shrimps Cake and Jasmine Rice were really good 😀

Thailand Food – Bake a Wish @ Siam Paragon Bangkok

Category : Thailand Bangkok

What attracted us to Bake a Wish here at Siam Paragon was its Tiramisu.

We were walking around looking for a place to have some dessert when we spotted Tiramisu in its display and decided to give it a try.

We were lucky enough to secure a table and ordered 2 of Bake a Wish’s desserts for sharing 🙂

Bake a Wish 1

First up was Bake a Wish’s Tiramisu @ THB105 which was disappointing.

It didn’t have the intense flavour we were looking for. Saizeriya Singapore’s Tiramisu still top the charts.

Bake a Wish 6

Luckily the day was served by Bake a Wish’s New York Cheesecake @ THB210 which was served with raspberry and blueberry. Now this is interesting and it was good.

Its texture and the intensity of the cheese was just the way we like it.

Bake a Wish 7

Its raspberry was a tad too sourish for us. But adding blueberry to Bake a Wish’s New York Cheesecake was a match made in heaven.

Thumbs up 😀

Thailand Food – After All Coffee & Bakery @ Siam Paragon Bangkok

Category : Thailand Bangkok

Besides having had the awesome Ferrero Toast @ After You Dessert Café in our previous trip, we also explored the numerous dessert options at Siam Paragon this time round.

Walking around the various kiosks, we were really spoilt for choice.

Some of them looked like artwork.

While others had long queues in front of them.

Eventually we decided to have Blueberry New York Cheesecake @ THB135 from After All Coffee & Bakery.

It was decent.

Though not as good as Bake a Wish @ Siam Paragon Bangkok’s New York Cheesecake 🙂

Sorry, forgot to take photo before eating so only have this photo from its display window 😛

Thailand Food – Ra-Men Bankara @ Siam Paragon Bangkok

Category : Thailand Bangkok

And now for my partner’s new favourite Japanese Ramen Place here in Bangkok – Ra-Men Bankara @ Siam Paragon Bangkok.

Watch out NanTsuTtei Ramen @ Siam Paragon Bangkok, you have competition! Haha 😀

He had Ra-Men Bankara’s Kakui Bankara @ THB255 which is Bankara Original topped with their signature Kakuni (braised pork belly) from their Bankara Soup Signature Ramen series.

What won my partner over was their richer soup base and tender signature Kakuni.

It was richer than NanTsuTtei Kuro Nantsu Ramen’s soup base and its Kakuni was tenderer than NanTsuTtei’s Cha Shu.

Ra-Men Bankara 16

Here’s how the menu described this yummy Japanese Ramen:

Special pork bone broth infused with specially refined Shoyu, served with medium thickness Tokyp style noodles. Lighlty salted with a hint of sweetness. Best served with Ra-Men Bankara’s signature Kakuni (braised pork belly).

As for me, I had Ra-Men Bankara’s Sankoichi @ THB270 which is Tonkotsu with full toppings of their signature Kakuni, extra large serving of spring onion and 4 pieces of seaweed.

Mmm…Personally I prefer NanTsuTtei Kuro Nantsu Ramen over Ra-Men Bankara’sSankoichi.

I didn’t quite  enjoy Sankoichi’s soup base and Kakuni which is a tad fatty for my fancy.I could do without the 4 pieces of seaweed too, which tastes very ordinary.

Ra-Men Bankara 17

Here’s how the menu described it:

Tonkotsu soup, employing a slow boil technique to create a milky and rich in flavour pork bone soup, served with thin Hakata style noodles. Smoothness of taste is he defining character.

We each ordered different starred and style of Ramen on Ra-Men Bankara’s menu and had mixed reviews on our maiden experience at this super crowded Japanese Ramen restaurant at Siam Paragon Bangkok.

So…return again? Mmm…Maybe. Though I won’t order Ra-Men Bankara’sSankoichi again. Maybe their Cha Shu Ramen 😛

Thailand Food – NanTsuTtei Ramen @ Siam Paragon Bangkok

Category : Thailand Bangkok

We’re back in Bangkok! 😀

We had a great time when we first landed in Bangkok last year through our experience with APC.

Now we’re back for more 😉

Our first stop (after checking into our hotel) is  NanTsuTtei Ramen @ Siam Paragon Bangkok.

On first glance, they’ve expanded their menu and increased the prices of some items.

We ordered our usual NanTsuTtei Kuro Nantsu Ramen. Yum Yum~

NanTsuTtei maintained the price of their Small Ramen @ THB150 while their Regular portion is now THB210, up from THB190 last year.

NanTsuTtei Ramen @ Siam Paragon Bangkok 12

I still love NanTsuTtei ‘s original Kuro Nantsu Ramen. Their soup base is rich and the ramen cooked to perfection. So different from NanTsuTtei Ramen Singapore 😐

My partner did feedback that their cha shu wasn’t very tender this time round though. He prefers the Ramen at Ra-Men Bankara @ Siam Paragon Bangkok, a couple units down from NanTsuTtei Ramen.

Our reminiscence meal wouldn’t be complete without NanTsuTtei ‘s Fried Chicken “Karaage” with WasabiMayo Tartar Sauce @ THB150.

NanTsuTtei Ramen @ Siam Paragon Bangkok 13

The wasabi in the mayo adds that extra punch to the Chicken Karaage without going over the edge of making you tear. Nice~

NanTsuTtei didnt increase the price of its Chicken Karaage though the portion has shrunk noticeably so…in a way their is a price hike albeit in abother form.

All in all I still enjoy dining at NanTsuTtei Ramen @ Siam Paragon Bangkok though my partner now has a new favourite at Ra-Men Bankara @ Siam Paragon Bangkok.

What will we do the next time we travel to Bangkok? 😛

Note: Their is currently an ongoing promotion where Citibank Credit Cardmembers will get 10% discount @ NanTsuTtei Ramen, ending on 31 Jan 2016.

Thailand Food – SomTam Papaya Salad Restaurant

Category : Thailand Bangkok

Last but not least, authentic Thai food in Thailand! Haha…I know I know, all the food I’ve introduced so far isn’t really Thai food per se but hey, they’re good nonetheless 🙂

SomTam is another long queue place introduced by our lovely Relationship Manager. She said that the queue can get very long during weekend dinners! Luckily we were there on a weekday~

SomTam is a short walk away from Siam Paragon. In fact I can see the Siam Paragon logo from SomTam. And they have a good selection of Thai food at very affordable prices.

Beside good food and good prices, they are also very tourist friendly and provides 2 types of menu. 1 with pictures for folks like us, another with a list of everything they offer. Like!

First up, Tom Yum Soup. It’s also known as Northeast Style Spicy Soup with Pork Bone in SomTam’s menu. The soup is savoury and slightly spicy. It’s nice that the spice is not overpowering so we can still taste the tom yum flavour. On the other hand, this may not be good for folks who really like it super hot & spicy.

Next is the carbo dish and boy is this calories well spent! SomTam’s Stir Fried Thai Rice-flour noodles is simply delicious! This is one of the dishes we ordered again on our 2nd visit. *Nods*

And here’s the ultimate highlight of our meal *drumroll* SomTam’s Fried Chicken!! These deep fried chicken wings are simply divine and a must have if you dine at SomTam. In fact it was so good that we ordered a 2nd serving in the same meal and our 2nd visit!

Because the Thai restaurant name is SomTam, two SomTam dishes were also ordered. Somtam with Dry Shrimp & Peanut and Shredded Green Mango Somtam. Hmmm…I’m not a fan of Thai papaya/mango salad so I shall decline to comment.

What I will say though is that none of us liked this dish – Fried Northeastern Style Sausage. I dislike the flavour & the texture. Avoid.

Finally, fish. We had the Hot & Spicy Crispy Fried Nil Fish and Crispy Fried Fish on our 1st and 2nd visit respectively. Personally I prefer the latter. Crispy, fresh, yummy, satisfied!

Thailand Food – After You Dessert Café @ Siam Paragon Bangkok

Category : Thailand Bangkok

This is another super duper awesome food place and best of all, it’s desserts ohm~

Desserts are a girl’s best friend. I can have desserts all day!

And just like After You Dessert Café’s slogan, I constantly say – There’s always room for dessert!

Just check out the crowd at this place. It’s packed, and it always is whenever we pass by this dessert place. No kidding! We even have to take a queue number to wait for our turn.

Studying the menu while waiting to be seated, we were spoiled for choice. Everything looks so good! I wish we could have found this place sooner! *sob* Okay, think positive. At least my waistline wasn’t hurt…that much compared to coming here everyday! Hoho~

Now, back to food. We decided to order their Ferrero Toast and Royal Thai Milk Tea. Let’s skip the latter and focus on the main thing yar. Oh my goodess x 3! Their Ferrero Toast is amazing!

First up, we were shocked at its size. It’s huge! Luckily we only ordered 1 to share. Its toast is thick, fresh, fluffy, and crispy. The crushed Ferrero Rocher chocolate, whole hazelnuts, vanilla ice cream topped with chocolate syrup and I’m not sure…hazelnut syrup? Everything, everything is just perfect. I’m in heaven…I’m in heaven…

Oh and not forgetting, After You Desser Café also provides a big jar of honey for us to dash it over our Ferrero Toast. Both with and without works for me. More honey please! *grin*

I’m sure this must be like 1,000 calories but who cares (actually I do haha…at least it’s worth it!). This is a guilty indulgence 110% worth the calories! Yum yum!

Thailand Food – NanTsuTtei Ramen @ Siam Paragon Bangkok

Category : Thailand Bangkok

As I was saying, I love Thailand food. Yum yum! What’s travelling without trying some local food right? I definitely belong to the live to eat category! Also constantly being reminded to lose weight… 🙁

Anyway, most of our meals are covered and for the few meals that aren’t, we’re fortunate to have our lovely Relationship Manager to show us the way…to good food 🙂 We also managed to stumble across a couple while we were walking around. Lucky!

Let me touch on those we discovered 1st. Both of them are in Siam Paragon and aren’t exactly local Thai food vs those recommended by our Relationship Manager. Nonetheless, they are amazing~~

First up is our 1st and last meal in Bangkok. Yes, it was so good that we went back to stuff ourselves with it just before departing for the airport!

Japanese Ramen @ NanTsuTtei Siam Paragon.

The Ramen texture is perfect and different from any Ramen I’ve had before. It’s very springy (Q-Q) and not too thick. Everything is just nice.

The soup base is oh my gosh!! It’s rich & flavourful, yet not to the point of overpowering. Aka you won’t feel sick/tired of slurping up the last drop. The char siew is tender and their spring onion is oh so fragrant.

I have to say though, because I’m someone who prefers spicy food, I opted for their Aka Nantsu Ramen on our 1st visit which includes spicy red sesame oil. It was nice at 1st, however as time goes by, the spice sort of covers their yummy creamy tonkotsu (pork bone) soup. I’m a firmly believe that chilli/spice should complement & enhance the taste and not cover it so I didn’t order this when we returned.

So, my advice is to – just order their Original Kuro Nantsu Ramen and spice up your experience with the condiments they provide.

Side Dish

During one of our visits, we ordered their Chicken Karaage. Who could resist ordering some fried chicken right? It’s different in a good way. See that yellow mash – rich tartar sauce, egg and wasabi mayonnaise? It’s really 画龙点睛 (icing on the cake). It’s filled with their fragrant spring onions couple with a hint of wasabi. And that sauce – mild sweet soy sauce based dash at the bottom? That’s unseen of (At least not me.) My verdict? *Thumbs up*

By the way

NanTsuTtei Siam Paragon also provides the option of having their Ramen in 2 sizes, small and regular which I like since I can enjoy their Ramen with lesser guilt/calories when ordering the “Small” Ramen.

Leaves room for dessert!
