During my week in Bangkok I really didn't do much aside seeing family and walking the malls. I'm going to be honest and say that the Thai palate has really gone downhill since I was last there. Thai people have gotten too used to eating more sauce than actual flavours, meaning when the food comes they add a lot of chilli, sugar, peppers, fish sauce, and you end up with a muck of nothing. But the good news is the fresh fruits, coconuts, sticky rice, and flat rice noodles are still up to par.
Aside from all that we took a short walk down from our hotel on Lang Suan road towards Nguan Lee, and found this particular cafe/Italian Restaurant called Per Te (Visit their facebook for more info). It was a really peculiar little shop because it was located on a residential property. Pretty much built on a corner of it.
Per Te's chayenne cake is very well done. Soft, not too sweet, full of tea flavour, and definitely feels homemade. If there was little less icing that would be top notch. We shared one between 3 and ordered one more.
Because their main focus isn't on coffee, you can't blame them for using illy's but it wasn't half bad, and it was so beautifully done! Look at that pretty foam with that cinnamon stick on my cappuccino =D. Makes me happy at least. This place isn't pricey at all, for the price of about $150HKD, we had 3 coffee's and 2 cakes. How is that even expensive when afternoon tea in HK can go up to 150/person.
My parents and I wanted to go and try their lunch set which was about $180HKD/person. The meal included starting salad/soup, main, coffee/tea, and dessert. They have a variety choices on their menu and these were my picks.
