Steamboat misadventure at MK - mmmmnnnnokay

You won't catch me having steamboat  or hotpot out of Penang . The only other place which I've actually enjoyed the steamboat / hotpot experience , was in Cameron Highlands ( covered somewhere in my backposts )

Since the first time I arrived in Bangkok , MK has been a fixture , it's been around that long !

I'm curious's always full . Damnit let's go try it out today shall we ?

Sutti Mansion II - The Edge lookalike , his Blazing Pad Thai and our pot of Burning Tomyam

Never been to Soi 38 before . My first time exploring the area . Doesn't seem to be much action going on and from what I gather , it is all due to the efforts from the authorities on street hawkers .

While it may be a shadow of its past , I was determined to get a late night bite and the only place that looked kinda buzzing seemed to be this tiny , odd spot called Sutti Mansion II .

Ponn Cafe

June in Bangkok is a really good time to go sampling their shrimps . Unlike the beginning of the year , where the weather can get pretty temperate these days , the sun was unbearably unforgiving . But that seemed to have brought out the best in the produce this region has to offer . Chillies are hotter , fruits are sweeter , shrimps are firmer and fresher ( really no idea why ) and if you are lucky , you can also get to sample some off season flowers in your omelette .

Disco Best Beef ดิสโก้ เบสต์บีฟ

By now , I've learnt not to take any beef soup that is dark in colour as it contains too many overpowering herbs that spoil the enjoyment for me .

Disco Best Beef has clear beef soup and that's where we are headed this time . 
Getting a table space can be trying even during non peak periods so be prepared to wait most times .

Hawker Chan - now in Bangkok

My jaw dropped wide open when I saw this .
Hawker Chan has now opened its first restaurant in Bangkok ...

Sizzler , Mega Bangna - lure of the free salad bar buffet

The restaurant buffet scene in Thailand is on such an upswing , that if you walk near or in any major shopping districts especially around Bangkok , in search of all you can eat places , for approximately 500 baht per person ( give and take ) you are bound to find a place to your liking !
There's just so many to choose from !

While , we decided on Sizzler on a whim , first let me show you where it is located in this sprawling complex .
You simply look for this centrecourt with a water feature ....

Flowers in my omelette

Believe me , I find these in season flowers absolutely fascinating . Even more so when they are categorised as food .

From what I observed , most Thais ate this flower picture below , boiled , with white steamed rice , more boiled vegies , a spicy dip 
aaaand nothing much . No meat nor egg which was a little difficult for me .

Rambo - the famous stray now immortalised by MBK

Been close to 2 years since my last visit . 
Will never get tired of Bangkok . Love the food , vibrance , folks and craziness of it all .

Here's one more to add to the long " to do " list .
A fibreglass statue of what I think is Rambo , a famous local stray , just by the side of the MBK building , otherwise known as Mah Boon Krong Shopping Center .
