UCC Cafe


Comfort of fusion

UCC Cafe, a Japanese brand, is probably Thailand's first foreign coffee chain established in Bangkok, long before Starbucks landed in the Kingdom. Besides coffee and drinks, UCC Cafe offers neo-Japanese cuisine, with selective Thai dishes in addition, and choices of classic comfort food for the high-so(ciety) Siam kids, but not for foodies.

Before Starbucks existed, UCC Cafe (Siam Center branch) was my regular 'meeting-point' with friends, due to its very convenient and visible location in Siam Center.

UCC coffee is nice but the cream is a bit too thick but yet very aromatic. Really love and hate. :)

u c, UCC in Japan coffee and food only J-style element added, to Thailand now Thai + Japanese fusion, more cream, more sugar, so our stomach need to be fusion in order to drink (/eat) them .. *_*

So UCC Cafe has a long history in BKK before Starbucks.
This brand is not popular in LA.
I only see this coffee at "Whole Foods", one of Pixmation's favorite stops in Pasadena.

Ah... I forgot - extra syrup and extra milk to be in fusion. No doubt only the young can physically afford the drink and food. :)
