Bangkok is a city like no other. Though it sounds like a cliché and gets often associated with almost every other city on the planet, you have to really and truly experience Bangkok to understand what is meant by this. Apart from the sex trade which has made this city such a popular destination, there is a lot more here to entice the casual and the serious visitor. Bangkok is a city of beautiful temples; a place where you can shop to your hearts’ content and not break the bank while doing so. There are cheap flights available for Bangkok from all over the world, and there is a wide variety of hotels and lodging places to suit all budgets.
Most hotels offer rooms with breakfast as part of the package. However, Bangkok’s food is among the best in the world and even at breakfast time, you will find fresh food being prepared by the roadside and the locals thronging these places on their way to work. These are fairly economical in cost, and the food is fresh and tasty. After all, Thai cuisine is among the world’s most popular cuisines.
Breakfast can be a fun and exciting way to begin the day and if you are looking for an alternative to that bowl of 20-30 baht Thai noodle soup – just step out of the comforting surroundings of your hotel and try one of these places:
Crepes & Co.
With a name like this, how can they go wrong? They serve breakfast from 9 AM from Monday to Saturday and from 8 AM on Sunday. The extensive menu and excellent dishes have made this one of the most popular breakfast joints in the city.
Are you looking for a hearty American or Continental breakfast? Then, make your way down to Bourbon Street on SoiTana Arcade. From pancakes and waffles to Eggs Benedict, they have it all. Have a solid breakfast, forget about the calories and you can happily miss lunch, since you will leave this place well-stuffed and satisfied.
The Sukhothai Hotel
If you are one of those lucky people for whom budget is not an issue, then the Sukhothai Hotel offers you a truly five-star experience. The breakfast array is magnificent and the quality of the cooking and display is unbeatable; luxury and style are the hallmarks of this hotel.
They serve breakfast all day here, and their desserts such as blueberry cheesecake and lemon meringue pie are delectable and mouth-watering. They even serve fish and chips as part of their breakfast menu. The eggs are really, really good.
Bangkok Bagel Factory
Located inside the Maneeya Center, they serve a large variety of bagels with the customary toppings; and somehow manage to make them taste even better than the ones you get in America.
For a true gastronomic experience which will cost you very little, try the street food in Bangkok. These small trolleys are very clean; they are monitored by the health authorities and they serve delicious, freshly-made food.
Breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day and should be a hearty affair, especially if you are feeling a little delicate after the antics of the night before and there are a range of options for people on all sorts of budgets.
If you’re flying in to Bangkok, Suvarnabhumi Airport has around 50 dining venues located in its 25,000-square-metre airport terminal so even if you’re just passing through, there is more than enough opportunity to sample some of the best breakfast options Bangkok has.
