Bangkok Adventures: Pierre Herme - The King of Macarons in Emquartier

Nobody can say no to Pierre Herme macarons, especially not when it's already right in front of your eyes and you didn't have to fly to Paris just to try them. It turns out that Pierre Herme opened a shop in Bangkok, right in the heart of Emquartier, which is a huge ass mall with lots of food and branded items, similar to Siam Paragon. 

We got the 7 piece macaron which came up to about 37SGD. 
Expensive, but no regrets. 

white truffle and roasted piedmont hazelnut slivers

This is part of the Christmas seasonal special flavour. 
If you like truffles, this is it. 
Mildly salty mixed in with some sweetness, this is a really unique flavour. 

rose, litchi and raspberry

This macaron is their best selling flavour and it's all about texture. There were little bits of pinkish stuff inside, can't quite tell what it is but it added some oomph to the cream. 

pure origin brazilian dark chocolate, paineiras plantation

This is hands down one of the best chocolate I have ever had. The chocolate is so creamy it's almost like a thick and silky smooth ice cream. 

vanilla and caramel bits

hazelnut praline and crispy praline

See what I mean about nothing is ever that simple with these macarons? Bite open and there's almost always a surprise waiting inside. 

mandarin orange and candied mandarin orange

One of my favourite flavours is this orange one. It looks simple but the addition of candied orange really takes the citrusy notes to a higher level. 

milk chocolate and passion fruit

Bangkok Adventures: Laduree Cafe at Siam Paragon

French macaron masters Ladurée have landed in Siam Paragon and I decided to drop by for a visit. 

I like how the whole place seemed like a pop up cafe concept, right smack in the middle of the mall but still manged to look all quaint and French cafe-ish. 

The setup all looks super dainty and girly, it's the perfect place to spend a girly afternoon date having some high tea and chilling. 

puff pastry, cream puff pastry, pistachio light cream, whipped cream, grilled flaked almonds

Ordered a dessert to share, and this sounds very appealing. The actual look of the dessert gave me a surprise though, because I expected some dainty looking thing you know, to match the whole cafe vibe. My other experience with the Saint Honore was at Patisserie G and that was mind blowing. The whole design of the cake just looks sleek, dainty and tasted extremely refined. 


I'm a tad disappointed to say the least, while this is not bad, it wasn't mindblowing like what I expected. . I am more disturbed that our local Patisserie G has a much more refined and delicious version than the famous Laduree.

green tea marked by the energy of bergamot combined with rhubarb and caramel. a royal blend that gives panache to this tea. 

This tea, however, blew my mind away. It was green tea and beyond. All the added bergamot spices made the flavour of the tea more complex, Even though we were on a time crunch, we still managed to drink the whole pot.

In a Nutshell

Verdict: 3.5/5
Price Point: $$$
Thumbs Up: Tea
To Improve:  Food wasn't mindblowing, but service and atmosphere was on point. 
Will I return: Maybe
Why: Nice quiet atmosphere makes for a nice spot to chill the afternoon away.

Bangkok Adventures: La Creperie - French Crepes & Parisian Homecooking in Siam Paragon

La Creperie is a French cafe and this branch at Siam Paragon is their second home in Bangkok. Their first cafe is further away from the city and nestled among greenery so fantastic you would think you're in a French countryside. 

This outlet at Paragon takes on the decor of a modern Parisian apartment, with monotones blacks and whites taking the main colour scheme and chic paintings hung on the walls. The paintings are all sourced by the owner, and some of them were even taken by him.
There are two levels to this cafe and some really nice and cosy corners for diners who prefer some privacy.

For the people who love promotions and any deals that gets them something free, this is for you. 
For the first 100 persons everyday, you get a FREE DRINK if you share a happy moment on Instagram or simply check in on Facebook and hashtag them. FREE DRINK okay. I did it on the spot and got a free drink hahahah

Lime and Honey Drink

There you go, free drink comes easy like that hahahahaha. 

Roasted Tomato Soup with Black Olive Crostini (150 baht)

This is one of the best soups I have tasted and I am not kidding. That tomato soup was velvety smooth and so intensely fragrant. I might also add that tomatos, olives and breads are three foods that I dislike and avoid but in this instance, not only did I finished it all up, I wanted more. The black olive crostini was amazing. The bread was warm, crispy and that black olive spread was salty, fragrant, intriguing and amazing. Typing this makes me swallow my saliva as I crave for this deliciously comforting dish. 

Savoury Crepes: Bacon, Mushroom, Cheese, Egg, Tomato (290 baht)

The reason I was drawn to this place was actually because of this dish. They had this gorgeous poster of this exact dish put right at the entrance of the shop and everyday I walk past them, I can't help but stop and stare for a bit. Can you blame me? It was gorgeous and yes it tasted as good as it looked. 

The crepe was crispy, eggy, and thin. Yes it was thin but chocked full of ingredients. Everything tasted awesome and the owner was especially excited, regaling us with tales of how he opened his restaurant and what life is like in France. 

Savoury Crepes: Smoked Chicken, Cheese, Egg, Mushrooms (270 baht)

I confess I've never had smoked chicken before and this is my first time. The smoked chicken is quite substantial in size and strong in flavour, so one piece can feed many mouthfuls if you cut it up into smaller pieces so that the taste does not overpower the crepes. My only regret was we had no more space for the sweet crepes but that meant I'll be back! It was truly an enjoyable dining experience. 

In a Nutshell

Verdict: 5/5

Bangkok Adventures: ISAO - Modern Fusion Japanese Food

ISAO, is one of the hottest modern Japanese fusion sushi places in Bangkok, and with good reason. Located in Sukhumvit 31, it’s in between BTS Asok & Phrom Phong, so the best way  to get here is by taxi unless you like walking or if you are staying nearby. I actually walked from Asok the first time and it was very farrrrrr.  


Jackie is the most adorable caterpillar sushi you will ever see, and it's also delicious. 
This is a Specialty Maki Roll and it comes with ebi, shrimp tempura, ebiko and avocado all lying in a bed of delicious sauce. 


Wanted to try something lighter and boy was this amazing. I always thought California rolls were a waste of stomach space but ISAO took my breath away. Their rendition of California roll was a ton of sweet snow crab packed tightly with creamy avocado. Even without shoyu, the roll exuded the sweetness and freshness of crab. It was the simplest roll but it was also one of the most memorable ones. If you want to go back to the basics and would like to try a lighter sushi dish, this is a must try. 


While this is not the signature, this is also quite a spectacular roll. The Spider roll is essentially soft shell crab with avocado packed tightly with rice and roe. It was creamy, crispy and mad delicious. Why is everything here so delicious?! I also ordered the Spicy Salmon, which is not pictured here but also extremely good. Must try that if you're a fan of Spicy Salmon. They also have the tuna version available. 


This is also an ISAO signature, which is sushi shaped like a sandwich with fresh chunks of tuna and salmon. The cripsy tempura bits and roe added a layer of texture to the dish, elevating it to awesome. 


The Volcano is actually baked scallops in creamy spicy sauce. 

This is so incredibly addictive it's impossible to stop at one. Dig through the creamy mess to find big fat juicy scallops hidden underneath. It's like heaven just descended on your plate. 

The scallops have ben thoughtfully cut into small pieces so it's easy to spoon up everything and slurp it down. I scraped the shell clean and was tempted to pick it up and lick all the sauce off. 
Don't order to share, because you will end up fighting each other for the last piece. 
Just order one each, trust me. 

In a Nutshell

Verdict: 5/5
Price Point: $$

Will I return: YES!
Why: You'll be hard pressed to find such delicious and value for money sushi in Sg.

Bangkok Adventures: Talad Neon - Bangkok Biggest Night Market

Talad Neon is the newest and biggest night market in the city and it is opened by the same people behind the Platinum Fashion Mall. Officially opened in December, this lively market is conveniently situated in Pratunam and it houses over 900 food and retail shops. 

You can expect to find organized rows of beautifully set up stalls with fairy lights, food trucks and whimsically designed shipping container shops where cheap and good items are being sold! 
I actually got my phone a tempered glass screen protector for 100baht! That's around SGD4, a very good deal indeed. Especially since the guy worked extra hard to clean my phone for me too haha!

Talad Neon is an all-encompassing experience that not only allows customers to eat and shop to their hearts’ desires. They also have live music performances on-site every night. The festival vibe is strong here with funky neon lights, lighted blossom trees and enchanting fairy lights everywhere, setting it apart from the usual night markets that Bangkok is so popular for. These lighted trees make for a good rendezvous spot for big groups, people who are afraid to get lost, and for the perennial eater who needs a spot to indulge uninterrupted. 

You can find lots of hipster looking food and beverage items, like this bloody drink in bag for 79 baht or have a syringe shot in a smaller dosage. 

One stall I greatly recommend is this grilled pork skewers. If you think this is just the usual satay we have in Sg, you are greatly mistaken. But if you want the Sg style satay, they also have la. I tried it from another stall, super not impressive. Sg has better. So skip those and TRY THIS. 

I don't know what is milk pork, but for some unknown reason the skewers were impossibly tender and juicy with that charred smoky flavour bursting in your mouth. 

The most wonderful pork skewers I have ever tasted, it was life changing. If you are there, MUST SAVE STOMACH SPACE FOR THIS. 

Okay so I get it, night market foods are always heaty so drown out the fire with some fresh squeezed juice! It is very cheap and refreshing so you can drink to your heart's content, but in moderation please, in case you laosai from too much juice. 

I went for the butterfly pea lemon juice just because the colour was intriguing hahaha! 
But it was a life saver because... 

scroll down for answer... 

I was having mad spicy tom yum noodles HAHA! 

Look for this food truck if you're there, spiciness aside, I really like this bowl of noodles! 

For some reason it reminded me of a fusion version of our Ba Chor Mee. 
Tom Yum soup base, but lots of minced meat much like our beloved Ba Chor Mee, plus an oozy egg like in Japanese ramen, and topped with crispy fried wonton skin like in Wonton mee. 

If you eat this, run down the street and get juice, its nearby. 
Mad delicious, but also mad spicy. 

In a Nutshell

Verdict: 4/5
Price Point: $$
Thumbs Up: Good vibes, and such clean and smooth pavement haha!
To Improve:  The dustbins congreagete at a corner, bit hard to find. 
Will I return: Yes
Why: I like the variety of cheap and good food.
