There’s no denying that the whole of Bangkok has gone starry-eyed for Paco Bangkok.
The smoothie bowl café in trendy Sukhumvit Soi 31 went viral on social media ever since their pop-up at the last Mad Face Food Festival in Bangkok. It’s not hard to see why. Paco’s smoothie bowls aren’t just a bunch of blended fruit. Oh no — these are exquisite, fantastical, mind-boggling, plant-based works of art. Their bowls burst not only with rich vitamins and anti-oxidants, but also every colour of the rainbow. They’re each uniquely designed with precise, diligent, super skilled hands that create marbling effects, intricate florals, and kaleidoscopic patterns. Yes, these smoothie bowls are Instagrammer-magnets. But they’re also truly delicious, made with only real fruits and colours, and served by friendly personalities.
There’s just one little problem with Paco: choosing what smoothie bowl to order is near impossible. Feasting your eyes on the gloriously vibrant menu featuring a dozen eye-opening combinations of fruits, superfoods, and designs, you’re going to feel like you need an almost spiritual guide to help you choose the one for you. And that’s exactly what we’ve got for you right here. When you don’t know which choice to make, what better than to look to your own cosmic spirit for guidance? These crazy smoothie bowls already look like they’re part of the galaxy, so maybe it’s the stars you need to ask. Here, we’ve matched up the perfect Paco smoothie bowl for you according to your zodiac sign. May the stars be ever in your flavour.
