Vanilla Brasserie Bangkok

One of my most memorable restaurant discovery in Bangkok is Vanilla Brasserie. Aside from having a nice ambiance, the restaurant also serves deliciously and camera-friendly dishes. Not to mention that it is also located in posh Siam Paragon Mall.


Vanilla Brasserie looks like the usual restaurant from the outside but once you take a peek inside and glance at their menu, who'll know that they mean business. However, I have to say that I like the colors because it is warm and inviting.


Aioli Pasta. Looks simple but its quite good. I ordered this because I just came from a very long trip (floating market) and a bit famished but doesn't really want to over-stuffed myself.


Signature Squid Ink Pasta with Prawn and Garlic. My friend ordered this and asked me to have a forkful but I think I almost ate everything on the plate. ;) Yeah, I didn't realize that I was that hungry. What I like here is that the prawns are fat and juicy. And yes, I love anything with squid ink and garlic. Who cares if it blackens my teeth and makes my breath smell garlicky. Hahaha.


Baked Potato and Salad Greens. Just okay, I'm not much into baked potatoes though.


Chocolate Mousse. Here is another love at Vanilla Brasserie. I love how smooth and chocolate-y the mousse was without being cloyingly sweet. Thumbs up! No need for coffee if you order this.


We washed down our meal with Thai Milk Tea (my order), and chocolate drink for my friend. I also bought some flavored mooncakes (caramel, green tea, black sesame) and they are soooo delish! It also comes in nice tin containers.


And here's a photo with my Thai blogger friend, Monlada Nanawan. We met in Hong Kong a couple of years back when we both attended the Hong Kong Wine & Dine event sponsored by OpenRice.

  2. OMG.. :3 That baked potato and salad, and the squid ink pasta looks divine! And judging from the smiles on your faces, it was a pretty scrumptious treat! I love baked potatoes and anything that's garlicky and seafood, so I hope that when I get the chance to come over to Bangkok I will get to try out Vanilla as well :3

  5. I love their place, it looks so quaint! But not as much as I'm loving that chocolate mousse. Totally salivating at 11 pm!

  6. The Squid Ink Pasta reminds me of Pasta Negra in The Old Spaghetti House. It's so yummy, nevermind the ink. We actually made fun of it after eating, selfie-selfie. :)

  7. The Thai milk tea looks so divine. And how nice is it that you have a Thai friend. The blogging world can really be an avenue to build genuine relationships. :)

    1. Actually, its really funny because we have a language barrier. She speaks just a few words of English and I really can't speak Thai. But I guess our "love" for food bridges that gap. :)

  10. I love the squid ink pasta! By the way it looks, I mean. Haha. Not a lot of people can eat that though as they don't like the color.
