Day Two foodieventuring@Kalpapruek, Emporium Bangkok

image

This place had developed so much sincs the last time I was here two years ago. This place was nearby Chang massage place, which we visited several times as it was near our hotel and a 60minute foot massage only cost RM30!

We walked around emporium and decided to have dinner at Kalpapruek (local thai food that had space for us).

image

Like A LOT of space. The decor of the place did feel rather modern comtemporary which on first impression, I would not think of it as a Thai restaurant.

image

As it was my first Thai meal for the night, Green Curry…one bowl please! One thing that I had deduced…no matter we ate our Thai food, as long as it is within the boundaries of their homeland, the taste and quality of its food can only be good..or very good..or very, very good.

I’d say..this was considered very good!

image

Next stop, Tom Yam Kung definitely! Although the pot was small in size, it was still capable of keeping 4 mid size prawns inside. This was the creamy version. Not bad I’d say.

image

Next next stop….Phad Thai! So far every phad thai I’d tried in the various locations, there had never been similar in taste and looks. This was slightly darker with rather good wok hei. It was fries along with sliced pork and pork liver. The liver part was a little too much for me. Got a little sickened after a few mouthfuls.

image

The papaya salad wasn’t bad, but just a little overly nutty that it felt like I was scooping nuts out rather than salad.

image

The unique thing about Thailand is that theie version of orange juice is squeezed from mandarin oranges! A little sour, a little sweet, and a little heaty too! Yums but cannot drink too much otherwise I’d get sore throat haha.

Total damage per pax was about RM40, not bad considering the amount of foos ordered…amazingly, we cleared everything off! Pants…tightening….! 🙁

Field trip with Mr. Vince@The Bake Plan, SS2.

image

After worship practice, we followed vince for a short field trip to his wife’s bakery (teeheehee… More fresh bakes to eat… For freeeeeeeee).

Here is vince, showing off some of the new recipes created: almond danish, and red bean with margerine pastry. The red bean paste is made in Japan, as the theme of the bakery is “preservative free!” somethin’ you hardly see these days!

image

One of my favourite bakes: the croissants! For diet worry people, a mini  version of flaky buttery goodness is not harmful hahaha. And hey, only RM3… Steal deal!

image

Even the ham and cheese loaf looked  amazing! This… I will reserve it for another day 🙂

image

The Bake Plan is going all cheesey  frenzy yo! Glistening golden shiny cheese sticks.. Going for only RM3!

image

image

Flaky danish pastries have always  made me weak in the knees. And vince kept feeding us with free samples… Aduhai any more free… I don’t need to buy anymore lol!

image

Even the baguettes looked really awesome! A long loaf cost only RM5!
image

Field trip time! We were given the priviledge to tour around the bakery area where all these deliciousness were freshly baked. The pungent aroma of sweetness  buttery pierced right through our nose.. And tummies too!

image

As mentioned in my previous post, the croissants are baked in a freezer room, and here stood one of the bakers in winter clothing, prepping up the pastry dough. Brrrrrrrrrr!

image

These two… The cake experts! I could smell the vanilla from out here. Keep up the good work!

image

Of course I can’t leave this place empty handed after receiving such great hospitality, thus…. My breakfast for the next two days!
