sukhumvit / spring & summer

the modern thai and pan asian cuisine has it’s own distinctive ‘spring-touch’ to it where it gives you the traditional culinary experience with a modern twist. som tum tempura is one of my favourite. i’ve been a loyal customer of spring and summer for as long as i can remember and they never fail to amaze me. oh and don’t forget to try their cup c, a rich and flavorful chocolate brownie in a cup, in a c cup to be exact.

-edit-

unfortunately, as of 31/12/2015 and after 12 years of being everyone’s favorite, the restaurant was closed due to end of rental contract. *sobs*

    This is why I miss my life in my hometown. Here is just too cold to do any activities outside. I bet Korean must be so cold at this rate too! Enjoy the nice weather there darling :)

    What a lovely dining venue! Air-conditioned outdoor space is our favourite kind of place in hot and humid Singapore. Beautiful photos as always…and the favourite photo is…the VW beatle.

      it was actually my first time in an air-conditioned outdoor space in bangkok – everywhere else just has fans which sometimes just doesn’t cut it in this hot weather!

    What a cool place. I would love to relax in one of those bean bag chairs. When I first saw the image with the tempura som tum, I thought it was a ramen burger:) Btw: Yet another cool car on the blog. Is it also one of your friends’?
