We’ve picked some of the best in the latest cafes that have cropped up around town for you to check out. Here are five new Bangkok cafes you should add onto your radar this month.
Avocado lovers, take notes! Oh! Vacoda Cafe dishes up everything with this healthy fruit. For savouries, imagine Pad kaprao with a side of deep-fried avocado (THB 190) and Bacon pancakes with avocado and a soft, fluffy egg (THB 235). The must-try sweets is the signature Chocolate bundt cake (THB 155), which boasts complex flavours and moist textures; all thanks to the avocado and dark cocoa fusions. Not only does this cafe serve up meals with the green delight, but it also offers a hip ambience with retro-style decorations and pastel peach palettes.
