THAILAND: Bo.Lan Restaurant @ Bangkok

I guess for most Singaporeans, they will tend to singger at the name of this restaurant. But before you start to think something lewd, the name has no relations to Hokkien.

It is actually the name of the 2 chefs, who are also a couple too. Chef Bo, and Chef Dylan. Hence the name Bo.Lan.

Ordered a delicious Thai Milk Tea in preperation of the firey feast ahead.

Quite a relaxed setting. They have both al-fresco and air-con sections. Here, you won't get your usual Pineapple Rice or Pandan Chicken, but really innovative dishes using the best of Thai cooking and ingredients.

Quite empty when we were there on a weekday. Here, you cannot find much Thai customers because of the expensive prices. Mostly foreigner diners. But you can be assured that the food here is one of the best in Bangkok.

Something most Singaporeans would not have seen before in BKK - Salad of Ayuthaya river prawn and grilled long aubergine served with soft boiled duck egg. And it tastes good.
