Originated from Soho, NYC many decades earlier, Dean & Deluca has opened up in BKK!

To be exact, it has been open for awhile now actually. First this branch in MahaNakhon, then the second branch in Park Ventures Ploenchit then the latest one in Sathorn Square. However, this main branch just went through a make over and is said to be the largest in Asia. Yep. You heard that right.

As you can see, the exterior isn’t very completed yet but everything is operating per usual.

I enjoy D&D from time to time and even before the renovation it was pretty big with high ceiling, bright open space and always crowded with locals, expats and tourists.

I feel like the new design is focused more on the gourmet side of D&D. It’s like visiting Gourmet supermarket in Emporium or Paragon and even some products (actually, most of them) can be found in other markets around the city.

But I think I know where they’re coming from. Sathorn/Silom, an area where majority of all the big local and foreign companies are located at, is populated with businessman/woman who are too busy with work to have time for grocery, let alone to have a nice meal. Hence, D&D can come to their rescue. Simple, quick and healthy meal and grocery at one go! Talk about killing two birds with one stone.

Oh did I mention the variety of sweets they have? Talk about killing three birds!

This section is like a café within a café. More for those grabbing a quick bite rather than an actual meal.

There aren’t any individual tables so you either gotta sit across a random dude or have a seat by the bar and watch the chefs work their magic.

Salmon Teriyaki is my all time favourite in D&D! So delicious though the portion is quiet small and may not be too filling. Oh and I never knew it was okay for pizza slice to be THAT big. I mean compared to typical pizzas sold in Thailand, that’s like two (or even three) slices combined. HUGE!

And despite how full I was, my trip to D&D wouldn’t have been completed without trying their Earl Grey cake. As you can tell from the picture, the texture was slightly too jello like for my taste but you still get a pretty strong taste of earl grey, which is always lovely.
