Au Bon Pain - MBK Mall (Bangkok, Thailand)

(Image credit:  The Bangkok Shopping Guide)

I returned to Pathumwan Princess hotel after touring Ayutthaya (River Sun Cruise). 4pm was still way early for me to lock myself in the hotel room. So, I went back to the downstairs of the hotel tour office. By now, most of the staff already knew me very well. I enquired on what else I can do in Bangkok and the staff suggested that I can go for the cabaret show, later in the evening. I paid, transport included as well, at about 7.30pm.  The staff then suggested that I  grab a quick bite to fill up my tummy before I leave for the show. It was so convenient to look for food because I just had to walk to the adjourning MBK mall (Santa's Fast Food). I didn't want anything very filling. When I noticed Au Bon Pain, a small coffee and snack outlet, I straight away decided to pack some food to be eaten in my room. I pointed to the almond crushed sweet croissant and also ordered the ham wholemeal sandwich.  While I was getting ready to snap pictures, one of the young girl staff behind the counter started raising her voice, cautioning me not to take pictures. She went on and on like an unruly parrot.  Although I felt like asking her why, I sort of knew that she can get aggressive because her voice drew the attention of the rest of  the customers.

I shut off my camera, paid Bhatt20.50 and returned to my room. I had a shower and while on my laptop, I opened the wrapper from the sandwich and took a few bites.
Well, for a person who don't enjoy sandwiches, I was impressed with the taste. That being because of the fresh salad leaves, tomato slices and the drench of thousand island, yellow mustard and chili sauce. Yum. 
Next I pinched into the almond croissant. Fluffy, tasty and not really overly sweet. Another yum factor. 
Those few pinches and bites into the sandwich and croissant were enough, I wrapped back the balance to be eaten when I come back later in the night. The clock ticked, at about 7.20pm, I went down to the lobby and waited for my transport.

Up next - Calypso Cabaret Show.
