White Cafe


The color must go on

White Cafe, a popular caterer turned restaurant, continues its utmost popularity by pleasing the taste buds of Thonglorians and Bangkok's high-so(ciety) diners. If people like their laab or gaeng cooked with foreign ingredients, or pasta dishes using pungent Thai sauces, yes fusion I mean, then this is the place for them.

Somehow, White Cafe is one of a very few fusion led restaurants in Bangkok that I don't avoid (well, friends know that I am not an admirer of fusion food); I found their dishes also pleased my taste buds.

fermented shrimp-paste dip with tidbits (nam-prik kapi) and seared tuna (thumbs-up!)

nam-prik kapi, THB 280+; deep-fried Thai pilot fish (pla salid tord), THB 220+ (thumbs-up!)

stir-fried asparagus and crab meats with salted eggs, THB 220+ (good!)

White Cafe house recipe NZ mussels with Thai herbs, THB 220+ (thumbs-up!)

organic brown rice; a portion of spicy yellow fish curry salmon (so-so!)

spicy Southern yellow fish curry (gaeng lueng) with salmon, THB 220+

Is this similar to HK's upstairs and private restaurants?

Not easy to satisfy TC's taste bud.

Looks like some dishes better than Grey Hound. :)

Not easy to get so many thumbs up from TC.
Yes the tuna looks good.
Price not cheap for locals but ok for high-so and tourists in Thonglo area.

I read from "Eat & Travel Weekly" that Grey Hound's HK store is a big success for Thai Fusion food.

Har... GH HK is a big success?

Thailand Club said...

well, if we believe those meal-by-invitation-writers (and with take-home gifts) and advertorial led magazines, then we also believe that 'hogs can climb a tree'!

Stella said...

Yes GH is widely advertised in magazines. It helps as most of the regular people rely on this kind of advertisement/commercial as reference.
BTW, GH is pretty good.

Yes, GH BKK is pretty good, but I trust how my niece and nephew's innocent taste buds told them. They never talk about GH HK after their wounded hope for a nice fried chicken when it was first opened in HK.
