After a good lunch and shop at Terminal 21, we made our way back to the BTS station to catch the train to our next stop – Phrom Phong, where The EmQuartier is situated.
The EmQuartier is a relatively new high-end, upmarket mall in the Sukhumvit district of Bangkok. It is located opposite the Emporium, which is another luxury shopping mall. Both of these malls come under the same group that owns Siam Paragon.
The EmQuartier shopping complex consists of 3 quartiers: Helix, Glass and Waterfall with quite a number of photogenic spots to check out.
At the same time, enjoy a view of downtown Bangkok.
Qurator is a fashion hall and showcase for local Thai designers.
Baia Baia is one of my favourite shops where I can customise my own pair of flip-flops. There are just endless possibilities to create a pair that fits your personality as they have a wide range of soles, straps and charms to choose from.
Particularly love the ROOM Concept Store too which is a lovely home decor shop.
Managed to pick up a few items from here to spruce up the house. 😉
Dining options are aplenty here.
Love these flower pots from Audrey Cafe’ des Fleurs which are actually…
…cakes with cream on top. Pretty to look at but not quite my thing to eat as I’m not a big fan of cream.
So we settled for White Story instead.
The menu is a good mix of Western, Italian and Thai dishes.
We sat at a corner table right inside the cafe where we got to enjoy a spectacular view of the city centre.
And also had extra company (or rather, entertainment, lol) with this cute mini fish tank next to us.
Ordered a refreshing French Peach Velvet Soda (120 baht) that had a nice peachy flavour that wasn’t overly artificial or sweet. Loved the addition of dried cranberries and lychee that gave a fruity bite.
Hubby had an Americano (70 baht) which was normal.
And we shared a White Story Butter Toast with Maple Syrup and Ice Cream (185 baht) which not only looked tempting but was just as tasty too. It was like a Shibuya Honey Toast. The bread wasn’t crispy as it had soaked in a lot of butter. Delicious but I got quite sickly of it after a while. If there was extra crunch to give a texture contrast or maybe something to take away that cloyingness, it would have been a flawless toast.
For some reason, I didn’t check the receipt when the husband signed the bill. Normally I would because I know he doesn’t do that. Only took a look at it when we were about to leave because the paid amount didn’t sound right to me. And then I noticed we were charged an extra toast which didn’t come. We immediately highlighted to the staff about the extra charge but she said a refund was not possible. I asked her to void the transaction and we would pay in cash which also couldn’t be done. In the end, they refunded us the amount for the toast but not the taxes (++) that were paid via credit card. Kinda ridiculous. As it was too much of a hassle to sort things out with the staff, we just left.
So yes, if you decide to check out this cafe, please make sure your receipt amount is correct before you sign the bill. Otherwise you may get penalised for nothing.
