Continue my trip in Chiangmai. This will be a long passage as I have too much to share! So we joined the cooking class from Thai Farm Cooking School. The teacher told us that there were actually more than 100 cooking schools in Chiangmai!! which is a bit unbelievable. So it’s really hard to pick the best one if you have not yet experienced. I just picked it randomly in google and also read the reviews from Trip advisor. Have seen that they are one of the best cooking school which have more than 14 years experience. Their price is a bit higher than others, it is about 1300 THB / person. However everything was worth and I think I have spent less than what they have been given. So let me tell you more in depth of what I have experienced!
We reserved in advance by emailing them from their web site ( will share later). As they only offer full day class from 08:30 -17:00. So if you don’t plan to spend a whole day, you have to look for another school which provide an alternative. As far as I know there are lots of school do offer half day! However as a full day class, it includes more than half day.

SP chicken – Don’t ask me what’s stand for SP as I have no idea. My hubby has requested to go to try one of the famous local restaurant in Chiangmai. Their roasted chicken is so famous and featured in different travel magazine. The location is a bit hard to find and the signage is not very obvious. It is only a little yellow square stand out from the iron house located in an old town.
Don’t expect this is a nice restaurant in terms of decoration, as it’s in an old town and there’s no air conditioner, thus flies might come on your dish but I guess this is something I expected. Anyways, they have 2 kind of sauces, one is sour sweet and the other is chili, so you can just pick your favor.

Ristr8to is a coffee shop in Chiangmai which specialized various coffee from different countries. I was attracted due to their skull coffee glass and of course with their great range of coffee selection. If you are not a coffee lover? No worries, they do also offer non-coffee drinks and sweets! Such as waffles and their Brazilian Cacao drinks.

Have been quite a while not having a new post. Anyways after a busy week, would like to share some great food of my previous Bangkok trip in June. As I arrived before my husband because of my free redeem ticket of Asia miles! So my first dinner was alone. I planned to have my dinner at the Dock located in Siam paragon super market – Gourmet market. It is actually not a restaurant but a seafood bar. Thus it is a good idea if you have no partner to enjoy the dinner but yourself. Although it is only a bar however they do provide the freshness oysters and lobsters. Their oysters import from France, Tasmania and Japan.So you are like tasting the oysters around the world in this little bar!
I ordered the oyster set and come with a little glass of champagne also a lobster pasta. The lobster was so fresh as they were kept in tank and still alive before they picked and cooked! Price was reasonable and with only 12 seats around the bar table. So if you plan to enjoy the seafood with a group of friends then it might not be a good idea to go but a great location if you are enjoy with 2 or alone.

That’s one of the restaurant I visited in my past Bangkok trip. Laemgate is on my check list which I must go! It attracts me as it is ALL YOU CAN EAT for SEAFOOD!!
Laemgate have 2 branches in Bangkok, one in Phaholyothin11 and the other in Ari 4. How to go? The Ari branch is very close to BTS Ari Station exit 3, it takes you about 10 mins walk from the station OR if you decided to go after your plan to Chatuchak Market, then I would suggest you to go to Phaholyothin11 by Duk Duk. It takes approximately 15 mins Phaholyothin11 and is situated in between Ari station and Saphan Khwai Station.
We went to Ari 4 branch and the restaurant is REALLY REALLY hard to see. We have passed by several times in the same ari just walking back and forth!! We for sure we didn’t go to the wrong Soi (street) and the GPS did showed that we already there! As it was situated inside the gate and what you can see is the view below when you pass by. Lamgate was hidden at the dead end of the road. So that’s explain the reason why we passed by so many times!
There was a piano at the front door with the royal blue paint on wall, also some old books on shelf which have the european looks & feel. The waitress was so nice and allow us to get into the restaurant much earlier than the booking time because of the heavy rain that night. Which is much appreciated!

I have planned to go to this place well ahead the trip. It’s one of my MUST GO place. As they not only offers breakfast but over 50 different style of breakfast. You can find German breakfast, English breakfast, French breakfast etc. All were freshly made and the presentation was really nice!
The location is a bit hidden and we have almost miss the entrance as it is not really named The Breakfast Word but German Beer Garden!!! So it’s totally different. Something you need to aware when you pass by the German Beer Garden. However they do have a white banner on white and written the Breakfast World in both English and Chinese. I am quite surprised when I saw the chinese as thought it shall be one of the famous tourist place for tour but actually it was not. We went there by Dok Dok from hotel and it just cost us 150 baht, I guess 150 Baht is just a normal price and think every Dok Dok driver will offer the same price. Anyways glad we have GPS and it located the exact place where we for sure that’s where we need to go.
The interior is a bit country side look & feel. The table cloth made me feels like I was in my grandma’s house waiting for the delicious breakfast that she is preparing for us.

Since my hotel was quite close to Central Embassy, it just took me 5 mins from my hotel to the mall. Me and my husband have no plan to go to Paul Bakery but only went in because of their simply but attractive exterior.
Paul Depuis 1889 was the first french bakery in Bangkok. They were founded over a century ago in Croix, Northern France. It served country-style and fancy artisan breads and well known for producing over 140 types of breads. They have opened over 400 branches over the world. There are 4 branches except Embassy in Bangkok, The Emporium, Central World and Empire Tower . If you are looking for an affordable but quality french breakfast with a convenient location,Paul Depuis 1889 shall be one of your choice.
The take away counter had a wide variety of delicious looking cake and pastries. I haven’t got a chance to try their croissant however it seems like they have many good reviews. The price is not cheap but is affordable. Not only Croissant they offer but also freshly made fruit tarts and cakes everyday. I would highly recommend to try this if you haven’t. They just looks so delicious to me!
