bangkok, city guide

ekamai / one ounce for onion

ouncenonchalantly tucked away in an alley of ekamai 12 one ounce for onion offers some amazing light meals and in-house roasted coffees. only thing would be the limited seatings indoor – there’s only one table, couple of stools by the coffee counter and a tiny table along the window. outdoor is great and i even prefer it to airconditioned seats but when bangkok is so close to reaching its boiling point at 35-37 celsius every day? now, that’s a whole different story.

    This is such an awesome post, and inspiring, now I am on the lookout for little boutique shops with cafes operating together, hopefully I find some around Barcelona. What better way to shop and have your tea with cake and eat it too. Love your photos :)

    At first I thought the blog post would be about an onion-themed restaurant:):) Looks like such a nice place. I’m a big fan of cafés/boutiques, and really coil with the in-house coffee roasting. You have so many nice cafés over there:)

    The wild fruit waffle looks so interesting and like nothing I’ve tried before (not the waffle component though, obviously haha). Your photography is fantastic in this post, by the way!

    Love the pictures especially the pan fried eggs looks amazing with the coffee. The last picture, for some reason I thought it was tea being poured.
