[bkk] sukhumvit – gram

Sukhumvit 49 (The 49 Terrace)

I was very excited to try out this new brunch café but for some very odd reasons they were ALWAYS closed whenever I went so I ended up just having my usual cup of coffee and pastry at Starbucks instead.

When I was almost certain they were out of business, I found out they are closed on Mondays! and I guess I happened to go there ONLY on Mondays. Oh and keep in mind they are only open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

One thing and only thing that caught my attention prior to trying this place out was their GRAM sign – how vintage and 80’s?? I LOVE IT! Plus that sign is uber photogenic.

They have these fresh pressed juices that was very refreshing and not to mention much healthier choice to coffee or other sugary drinks. But how hypocritical of me… I ended up having my usual cup of Iced Cappuccino anyways but hey I did have a taste of my friends’!

Quinoa Salad

Quinoa, since I don’t even know when, was very forgotten in my kitchen at home but thanks to GRAM we are now back on track with this healthy super food. At first glance I thought I ordered something wrong though… doesn’t it look like how other places would serve Thai fried rice?

The food was slightly too creamy for my taste and the main downside of this place I would say is that there are only outdoor seats available and when Bangkok is almost at it’s boiling point as of lately, it’s not a very ideal place to go relax and have a nice brunch ‘cos most likely you’ll end up kind of grumpy and sweaty like I was…

But when the weather cools down I can imagine finding myself there every other week because one, I love the 49 terrace (it’s one of my favourite Starbucks branches) and two, I can’t get over how cute their sign is.

Oh there’s one thing I wish I had not seen while I was there though… I witnessed the waitress putting the utensils back in the shelve after dropping it on the floor. How I wish I had not seen that…

But nonetheless, here’s me showing off my mad Instagram skill. HAH just kidding – just wanted to prove how photogenic this sign is – it even makes a cup of coffee look handsome. I think I may be slightly obsessed.
