One of the best-hidden secrets in town is the vintage wonderland that spreads out across China Square every weekend, and this new cafe and bistro, sharing this love for quaint old things, offers a menu of hearty favourites inspired by Bangkok vintage markets, where great food and quaint knick knacks rub shoulders. If you’ve ever found yourself hankering for those sweaty Bangkok nights hunting for great vintage finds, with a yummy Thai snack in hand, this place will jog those memories and fill your tummy at the same time.
Scrumptious Thai street food takes center stage here. Think chicken wings stuffed with minced meat and vegetables, little parcels of pandan-infused grilled chicken, crispy fish skin coated in salted egg yolk on a bed of vermicelli, and Fried Prawn Cakes served with sweet and sour plum dip. Heftier plates include set meals of Massaman chicken curry, steamed fish, and rice, or lychee red curry sweetened with pineapples, tomatoes, and filled with tender mounds of duck. For some extra heat, Thai salads like vibrant pomelo salad, little juicy pips tossed with peanuts, lime, shrimp, and chilies, and a zingy three mushroom salad with enoki, shimeji, and oyster mushrooms tossed in a chili lime dressing. In addition, we also offer a wide variety of vegetarian and vegan friendly and healthy options such as Buddha Japchae Bowl and Salt & Chilli Aubergine & Tofu as well as an authentic new monthly Chef's Specials of truly Thai Salads "Yum and Tum", (i.e. Flower Crab Salad, Cockles Salad), Prawn Sashimi & Royal Kapi Rice that will bring Thailand to your palate from the very first bite.
A surprise Thai food gem in the middle of Telok Ayer, in gorgeous vintage trappings, this Instagram worthy spot is perfect for a Sunday afternoon lunch amidst antique and vintage shopping haunts. (Dec 2020)
