When mum is out of town 1: Espressamenteilly @ BV1

Mum spent her weekends in Bangkok last week with aunt and friends. She shopped, spent in fine dining as well as BKK street food.

Once she got home, she kept telling me about the place, the food, her shopping… from morning till night since Monday! Huh…. I wish I were travelling with her. The ways she describes were fascinating and heart alluring!




The first lunch I had was in Espressamente illy at Bangsar Village 1.



It is located right opposite the chatterbox as soon as u passed the connected bridge from BV2 to BV1.



I was just happened to pass by and the big big sign had my attention. The promotion sets sound great! And my stomach started to ‘sing’ at this right time.
Pasta + drinks at just RM 17
Cake + coffee at just RM 14
Panini + Juice at just RM 16

I opted for the Panini set and Glad that I was given I wide choices to select.


The cup of cappuccino with art (originally priced at RM 10). The cappuccino was freshly brewed. It was the shot of espresso topped with textured, velvety steamed milk.



As for Panini, I had their Focaccia Pollo
.

it is sandwiched with the grilled chicken breast with Portobello mushrooms, mozzarella, kalamatta olives and conflicts cherry tomatoes on Italian herb bread.


There are some greens served along with the focaccia. This is originally priced at RM 16 but with the promo set, a cup of coffee and a plate of sandwich is just RM 16.





The Panini is seriously large. I could only manage the half of it and took away the other half for my next day breakfast :) I will return for their cakes and try out the other Panini!

If you have a chance to visit bangkok. I recommend khaosan road....... I think that Kaosarn Road is good for young travellers. Around the street, there are a number of old buildings and temples, some of which have been transformed into restaurants and even tattoo parlours, although you will still find quiet family homes if you look deep enough. Aside from some interesting architecture, Banglampoo shows the mix of peoples and heritages that is the character of Bangkok. There are Muslims, Buddhists, Mons, and of course a great number of foreigners in this small area. All of this makes the area an interesting place for a glimpse of Thai life. Thais also appreciate the area for the many types of traditional kanom or Thai snacks and desserts available and the cheap clothing available in the Banglampoo Market
