[Bangkok] While Hong Kong and Singapore were still in a Salted Egg Croissant food craze a couple of months back, let us not forget about Bangkok, where many food fads go a level UP.
So here’s CODE, short for Café Of Dessert Enthusiasts at Jas Ramintra and Siam Paragon which sells all the possible instagrammable food all at once.
Here’s presenting the Lava Toast, oozy Croissants, Bingsu, Snow Ice and pretty cakes.
That is not enough. The Lava Toast comes in flavours of Salted Egg, Thai Tea, Matcha and Chocolate, coloured in Charcoal or half-and-half.
CODE claims to be the first to introduce the Lava Toast. Put 3 things in trend – Shibuya Toast + Salted Egg + Charcoal, and this is the almost the formula of success.
To be honest, I wasn’t expecting much. BUT I was wrong…
The Thai Tea Lava Croissant (120 baht) required a 15-20 minutes wait, but when it arrived, we could almost see the steam rising out of the black surface.
Cut through – it was actually crisp! And the lava oozed, and oozed, and oozed, and oozed.
Compared to those I normally have, this croissant was swimming in a pool of lava.
I swept a piece across the messy plate and was in joyful mode. The entire combination came together well, sauce flowy smooth with fluffy bread, topped with crunchy crumble.
On the other day, the Salted Egg Lava Toast (165 Baht) was comparatively disappointing as the bread tasted dry and could be less tough. I was also more indifferent towards the salted egg sauce.
My friend ordered it because he thought it would look good for photos as it was the only half-half toast combi. I know, how superficial we have become.
