As I lept through the gates of Vanilla Garden, I could hear a faint angelic chorus coming from a distance. Am I in heaven?
Hang on , the last thing that happened was the obnoxious taxi driver helping himself to a big chunk of my change. I paused gliding mid-air and walked calmly towards the door which the Bake Shop staff has graciously held open for me.
This place checked everything on the list that make a great space (in my books) – a bookshop, cafes shrouded by greenery, ample sunlight, coffee and PANCAKES. Of course, they offer an extensive menu which I have yet to try because all I want to do is talk about this piece of art right here –
Puff Pancake Banana Butter Rum
It's soooo decadently good. Especially love the generous sprinkle of honeyed cornflake bunch and how the butter rum sauce gives it a caramelly texture which complements the scoop of vanilla ice cream that is served with the pancake.
This is second on the list of must-haves whenever I visit Bangkok. Spicy Wingbean salad (Yum Tua Phood) from my favourite restaurant Neverending Summer still tops the list! ☺︎☺︎☺︎
