[Bangkok] Known for the many Japanese cafes and eateries in this Japanese neighbourhood, Thonglor is one of the most hipster places to hangout for a cup of coffee.
Adding on to the list of popular places such as theCOMMONS, After You Dessert Cafe and Peace Oriental Teahouse, this Japanese owned Souffle&Souffle Pancakes Cafe is located opposite to the popular Mango sticky Rice Shop, Mae Varee.
Located at the 2nd floor of a shophouse, the cosy interior with a homely touch is decked in wood with hanging lights and potted plants.
Being a soufflé-centric cafe, a selection of savoury and sweet soufflés are available on their menu.
Instead of the usual brunch items such as Egg Benedict and Caesar Salad, soufflé pancakes are substituted to create Egg Soufflé Benedict (THB 350, SGD14.80), Classic Brunch Soufflé (THB 330, SGD14) and Egg Caesar Soufflé (THB 320, SGD13.50).
Using Australian wheat made from grounded whole grains and organic eggs, each soufflé dish is freshly prepared upon order and requires a minimum of 20 minutes waiting time.
I was initially disappointed when I first saw the soufflés, as it was smaller and flatter than the ones I had previously.
But after having the first bite, my impression of it totally changed.
It was as soft as cotton, fluffy like cotton candy and very light on the palate, just like other typical Japanese desserts!
I could easily finish the entire plate on my own without even feeling guilty though.
Evenly cooked on the hot plates and not as starchy as I had imagined, yet it retained its firmness and texture.
Flavours such as Fuwa Fuwa Soufflé (THB 290, SGD 12.30) Choco-Banana (THB 320, SGD 13.50), Matcha (THB 340, SGD 14.40), Choco/ Fruits (THB 360, SGD 15.20) are available for desserts.
I enjoyed the texture of the Matcha Soufflé (THB 340, SGD 14.40) which came with organic whipped cream (blend of French fermented butter and New Zealand Manuka Honey), Azuki red beans and a scoop of matcha ice cream.
But as a fan of matcha, I wished that the flavours could be slightly stronger.
The texture of the souffles is quite memorable and I will definitely recommend this place to other cafehoppers.
