Rose Garden Riverside - Khlong Toei (Bangkok,Thailand) - Buffet Lunch


A short drive from Phra Pathom Chedi before we arrived at rose garden - such a beautiful sight as we entered the huge compound with both sides lined with red roses and shaded with plants and trees. Naturally cooling and shunning the sun, first up was lunch at the restaurant across the lake.before the scheduled at 2pm cultural show. Feeling rather hungry since I skipped breakfast and left by 7am from Pathumwan Hotel and tucked into the a few pieces of tiny coconut pancakes at Damnoen Saduak Floating Market, as soon as I finished with picturing, I helped myself to the spread between the Thai and Western dishes. 
 










Since for the last 6 days I've had glorious moments with Thai food, I opted for the Western dishes - a little spaghetti, fresh salads and roast. When I returned to the table, I got to know the couple who have started eating. We spoke and got to know each other though the husband didn't talk much but the wife surely had lots to share. Then came the usual question I am always asked when I travel alone, she too was curious, so I replied with my standard answer that my other half prefer to work while I prefer to spend his money by travelling. Mmmm? They were puzzled yet the praised me for travelling alone.

By now, my plate was empty, so I excused myself to grab some of  Thai desserts and a cup of coffee. The authentic made with mostly coconut milk, palm sugar and other quintessential  Thai ingredients were delicious and the crackling pork was another I must rave.  




With another half an hour in hand, I decided to walk around the compound before the start to the cultural show. To be continued........

  2. Those are drool worthy shots, my tummy is growling for something now. The first thing which caught my eyes was dessert section, wow so many varieties, looks yum!
    Ohh coffee, whichever form it is, indeed a best beverage especially with a dessert near by. I prefer scones, they are a great combo with coffee/tea. The shot with the huge ladle like bowl near the crispy fried pork looks lovely, interestingly shaped bowl!

    HaHa, that was a cool answer to the couple "my hubby is workin' hard...."! :-)
