Bangkok: Food Loft at Central Chidlom

I have been procrastinating in life lately. No real reason, just lazy. Last week, I took half day off to meet D1 on a "mission". It was the coldest day of Bangkok so it was pretty weird that I was wearing black tight walking around on Sky train. After our mission, we decided to grab lunch at Food Loft at Central Chidlom since they have cocktails in friendly price (100 something baht per glass - it was quite decent, I must add). Food Loft is like high-end international food court. You can get decent Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Thai and Indian in one place.

I chose "Mabo Tofu" or Spicy stir fry tofu. It was absolutely addictive. I have had it ages ago here and it was still very good!

D1 ordered her Indian's lamb masala with garlic naan and samosa. They were nice, thinking I should try butter chicken next time I eat there. Though the dipping sauces tasted a bit weird. The green one was suppose to be mint sauce but it was very sour and the red one was just, weird. Anyhow, after mixing two sauces together, everything was fine.

I ordered "Kimchi Shige" or Kimchi soup and it was such a let down. It was just sour and not even pleasant taste of sourness. I think it could be the kimchi they used coz kimchi that came with it also tasted not that so so. So definitely lesson learned that I shall never order kimchi soup unless I'm at Ootoya or dining at Korean town.

Such a big meal for two of us (inc. 2 glasses of cocktails!). It was Baht800 for the bill so 400 for each of us. I think it was decent, not for everyday eating but definitely for a treat.

  2. Yummmm that mabo tofu looks real good. Its so fun you get to order cuisine from all around the globe in one sitting!

  3. HI! Came to your blog through Tee's blog. Great notes on great places that you've eaten at. I love the Food Loft at Central Chit Lom though I haven't tried the Indian food yet and the rest that you've mentioned. They look good!
