Bangkok Shopping Trip – Part III

Having read several reviews of Mr. Jones’ Orphanage cafe, we went to try it during this trip. Pakcik is a big fan of cakes and coffee so I knew he would like this place. A pat on my shoulder for the good recommendation~

There are several outlets in Bangkok, and the one we went is at level 3 Siam Center.

We avoided the crowd by going before lunch time.

We were welcomed by these droolicious cakes upon entering the cafe.

The cafe is train and teddy bear themed. The tables and seats are like those from the olden days train.

Note: The seats are quite compact and non-movable. So people with long legs or are too big sized, they may not be comfortable with the limited space.

Even Pakcik finds the seat small.

There are many staff and service is very prompt.

Red Velvet cake

Since it’s near Halloween, my red velvet cake is Halloween themed. The cake is moist and fluff but the icing is too sweet for my liking.

Molten chocolate

This is the must-try item. The warm chocolate lava cake with the vanilla ice cream is so yummy~

hot chocolate

The hot chocolate is very rich. I don’t know why they still serve it with sugar. Any sweeter, I think I will become diabetic. LOL~ kidding…

Pricing wise, it’s slightly cheaper than cafe in sg. Cakes are from 100++ baht and drinks from 70++ baht.

Addicted to the cakes, Pakcik requested for another visit to the cafe before we leave Bangkok.

coffee

This time I tried the mocha, and I was given a cute bear coffee art~

Pakcik’s Americano. See the cute reminder on the cup?

carrot cake

The carrot cake is very moist and dense. You can see the generous amount of carrots and fat raisins in the cake.

For those who like crispy waffles, you will enjoy this strawberry waffles with vanilla ice cream. It’s crispy on the surface and fluffy inside. Minus the too-much-cream, this is yummy too~

So do try the cakes from Mr Jones’ Orphanage when you are in Bangkok~

Paris Baguette

Went to Paris Baguette in JEM some time ago with Pakcik. Quite a number of people and blogs have been highly recommending this place for desserts, and so we gave it a try.

tiramisu pastry

 

Pakcik got this tiramisu pastry thingy. It wasn’t good. The choco powder was too thick and it dries up the entire mouth when we took a bite. Not the usual tiramisu taste. Just powder with dry flaky pastry inside.

strawberry shortcake

The strawberry shortcake was decent. The large and sweet strawberries were a plus point. I think it costs about $8 per piece? Kinda overpriced.

Overall, I don’t find the 2 desserts very fantastic. Maybe I chose the wrong items to try? Anyway, the coffee was from those coffee dispenser, nothing special.I also don’t like the layout of this outlet. Because of the very long food chiller, if some fickle-minded customer stood there, the rest of the customers will be stuck at the entrance.

So don’t think I will “highly recommend” to anyone.

Cupcakes from Plain Vanilla

Cousins bought the cupcakes from Plain Vanilla for their dad’s birthday. So sweet of them~

I tried a few flavors and I like the carrot cake and cinnamon the most~ Next time I shall drop by Holland V to get some for myself~
