While strolling down a less populated part of Bangkok, we stumbled upon a small and quirky cafe – Bangkoku Cafe, which immediately sparked our interest. Located just beside one of Bangkok’s most popular old-school barbers – Good Old Days Barber Shop – we were delighted by the cosy cafe’s reasonably priced drinks.
Sprawled on the walls are various menu items, from typical coffee to some very interesting alcoholic cocktails. Although this cafe has a limited food menu of a few cakes and sweet treats, the great drinks were enough to keep us happy.
With so many overly-publicised big cafes in Bangkok, it was nice to see a simple and humble cafe like Bangkoku Cafe.

Kuehs are common snacks of the Hokkien, Teochew and Peranakan cuisine. The terminology is actually a general description for bite-size nibbles. We realised that majority of foreigners and even generation Y Singaporeans are largely confused by what kuehs actually are and the different types of kuehs available.
These traditional delights come in many different forms and are either sweet or savoury. It could be a biscuit, cake, pudding or other rice-based treats. Preparations of kuehs are not confined to a single recipe due to its various Asian origins. Furthermore, most were actually created based on rough approximation.
If you are still confused, read our Beginner’s Guide to Kuehs and do make time to sample these lovely heritage desserts!
