Soi Thai Soi Nice Restaurant at Alexandra Central Mall

Soi Thai Soi Nice is a Thai restaurant  that took over the space formerly occupied by the Atmosphere Bistro Bar in the Alexandra Central Mall (next to the Ikea store). Except for the change in name and cuisine, the new restaurant appears to have retained the layout of the restaurant. Which is a good thing both for comfort and for environmental reasons as the place had been well furnished with cushy chairs and nice furniture.  Attracted by the enticing weekday set lunch menu, we decided to try out this new Thai restaurant in Alexandra Central mall.

Greyhound Cafe – from Bangkok to Hong Kong (and maybe Singapore)

Greyhound Cafe

Greyhound Café is a popular fashionable cafe in Bangkok. Somewhat like the story of P.S. Cafes of Singapore, Greyhound started as a clothing label and their casual dining cafe was a successful extension of its fashion label. The cafe now has outlets outside Thailand which offers the same simple Thai food with creative twists. On a brief visit to Hong Kong, we found a Greyhound Café in IFC Mall. We thought it was a good venue for breakfast, lunch, dinner or just desserts and drinks.

Parkway Thai Restaurant at Biopolis, One-North

Parkway Thai Restaurant is a simple, unpretentious restaurant in Biopolis, One-North. In the day, it attracts a fair volume of office workers who work in this biomedical research and development hub at Buona Vista. In the evenings, things quieten down a bit. We were there for dinner and had the place all to ourselves.
