When I’m in a city like Bangkok, as much as possible I try to eat Thai food, to savour what the city proudly offers as their local cuisine. While I’ve passed many pretty/quirky/modern cafes as I travelled around Bangkok, I’ve mostly dismissed them in favour of street food. A rare afternoon with some time and transport handy on my hands, Vanilla Garden @ Ekkamai 12 seemed as good as any to check out.
Sometimes, we stick to the things we are familiar with too often and as time goes by, I find that I’m taking less and less adventures. Bangkok is a place that I’ve been many times, and we always patronize the same few restaurants – we knew what we liked and knew where to get them. So I’m glad that I’ve managed to try some new places this trip, probably due to having different company too!
With no pressure or presumed expectations, we decided and went into the restaurant. I kind of miss this feeling actually, no risk no surprises right?
