French Café in Bangkok, If you agree that living life to the fullest on a ‘c’est la vie’ basis sometimes involves savouring piece after piece of decent pastries in a lavish ambience, then here are 5 of Bangkok’s most worthy French cafés that might help prevent you from flying half way around the world to Paris, but instead gives you a busy road trip around the heart of Thailand’s capital to get your daily sugar injection.
Located in the blooming neighbourhood of Soi Ruamruedee, Amantee Bangkok is not just another so-called authentic patisserie, popping up to fool around with over-fancied, yet dull Frenchness. Instead the baking pioneers choose to focus on ingredients and baking methods. Already notable among bread lovers, French bread craftsmen, Jonathan Valdman and Benoit Fradette’s creations involve long fermented organic flour and other atypical bread elements, such as flax seed, to create modern patisserie with a twist.
Try their famous ‘La Bure Du Precheur’ and you will not hesitate to get back off at Ploen Chit BTS station and take the short walk down to this bakery again.
