Bangkok : #2.3 Mango Tango

So following the full lunch, we headed opposite to what trooper ali recommended : Mango Tango 🙂

shop front 🙂

You can’t miss this place .. because this place has many youngsters queuing up for it! and the place is really small and at a corner 🙂 so be prepared to queue up or try going at odd hours instead maybe?

so we ordered :

and also not forgetting…

Mango Sticky Rice 🙂

Verdict: 5/5 of us will return to this place to eat. We especially enjoyed the Mango sticky rice. What so unique about it is that crispy Mango puff thingy that is scattered on the rice. Although complaints from the troopies was that the rice was quite sweet .. but I think what was awesome was that the mango was even sweeter than the rice! ahhahaa but one of the better mango sticky rice we ate throughout the trip. Highly recommended. 🙂

we decided to have a pre-dinner snack before heading to check out platinum mall for a while ..
So we explored nearby and went to the paragon food basement..

Chocolate Milk

Verdict: I think the yoghurt was the best 🙂 hahahaa followed by the matcha, thai milk tea… troopie beat complained the chocolate milk was not thick enough .. so .. Yoghurt the best 😀

Following that, I had one of my ‘cheated by the picture’ hazelnut ice-cream…

Ferrero Rocher

This was a ‘*wrinkles nose’ moment.. Hazelnut taste was faint 😦 so a big no for me 😦

Bkk: #2.2 – One of our Best lunch ever

This place I am about to blog about, has an equal agreed vote that this was one of our best meal of our trip!
So after they completed climbing temples and visiting palaces, trooper ali brought us here to finish off the afternoon

Entrance: Directly opposite mango Tango

deco inside 🙂

I must make an acknowledgement. I was late because I was caught in the Jam, so all the next few well taken pictures are taken by troopie mother who volunteered and thoughtfully took all the pictures for me before the food got wacked by everyone 🙂

Fried morning glory and Thai Fish cake

OOo and they have this! something like what was found in a-roy

Thai style ‘otah’ in a coconut

and …. we ordered 2 plates of :

Pad Thai

of course, not forgetting :

Thai Green Chicken Curry

Verdict: 5/5 of us are coming back here to eat if we return to Bangkok! I think the pictures can speak for itself. I think we were all famished at the same time, but the pictures are not arranged in an order of preference. We cleaned up everything spotless 🙂 The Thai food here is probably catered more to our ‘tourist-y’ taste buds, but nonetheless one of the most enjoyable meals 🙂 the Pad Thai was awesome in that it was not too dry? and had alot of sauce. The green curry was SPICY but had a real kick to it 🙂 The Thai style Otah was also very rich and tasty when eaten with the coconut flesh together. Definite awesome recommendation 🙂
