There are two food courts in MBK. One, with less privacy and cost, at level 6, catering more to tourists and weaker currency tourists eg: Malaysians like me. But it can be easily missed as you would pass through the another food court at Level 5, thinking that this was the only food court available.
We went in to the Level 5 one, not knowing. We were given a card each upon entry and charges would be incurred into the card upon any orders, same concept as Marche’.
We realised that this was the premium food court when only Caucasians were eating and each price tag looked really premium.
As mentioned earlier, every phad thai looked and tasted different. Yet again, it was found true based on this version.
Slightly wet, but still rather spicy. However, the egg was just too salty. Much like how I used to fry eggs when I was in high school. Tons of soy sauce, youthful body to take the salt overdose. Urks.
This was the clear style Tom Yam Kung, spicy as ever, but the flavour of ginger and lemongrass was heavy. I much preferred this to the creamy dense coconut milk version.
The first Asian we spotted, hurrah high five! Although it was premium priced, the service was no different. I still had to walk back to the counter to collect my food like any other food courts. It did feel quite like a rip-off but when I went up to the 6th floor to check out the scene, the place was packed and noisy and the payment system was even more complicated. I guess the extra RM 5 – 10 per dish went in to comfort and convenience.
Intercontinental Bangkok’s service was amazing (except the check in and checck out). Every guest is given a complimentary drink voucher and the drink isn’t actually shytty but the real deal with great choices: local beers, freshly blend fruit juices or coffee/tea of any kind.
EASY GUESS. ONE SINGHA PLEASE!
After a tiring whole 2 days without much rest from last week’s travel, a short 30minutes by the comfy sofa and cozy environment, accompanied by this icey cold beer was a much needed break for me.
Looking forward to return home tomorrow!
