[Bangkok] Fancy hearty Thai food and treats amidst a fairy-tale set up?

B-Story Café has earned quite a reputation on Instagram for its part-gothic part old-world European style décor, complete with stained glass windows and ‘old’ chunky wooden furniture.

It is so weird you can imagine a European family having Thanksgiving dinner in their upper room. But yet, there are like teddy bears all around and… Thai Milk Tea.

The other thing I really like about B-Story Café, is that it is really quite easy to get to. Just train to Ratchathewi BTS Station, get down and it is just there.

Not many people know that there is also a newly opened B-Story Garden Cafe & Restaurant, but that is located near Lat Phrao which is much further to get to from Central Bangkok.

B-Story will truly offer you some instagrammable moments the minute you step in.

The entire décor and layout of the café is stunning in its own quirky way, and quite easy to spot as well.

Its architecture with huge windows and a lot of lovely flowers and lush green pots is hard to miss.

Going to the café during holidays is a bonus as there is some really charming festive decoration to lighten up your mood and lift up your holiday spirits.

The menu of B-story is extensive (and eclectic) and mainly offers Thai and Western dishes.

You get anything from Pad Thai and shrimp wrapped in egg (145 baht), Fried Rice Chicken Green Curry with Salted Egg (135 baht), Baked Rice with Pineapple served in a Pineapple – nope, no typo (220 baht), to a dish called “Stir Fried Aimlessly” (250 baht) – that is a mixture of seafood and vegetables.

Yet, there is also a Western side offering Fettucine Alfredo with Truffle Oil (270 baht), Linguine Marinara Seafood (270 baht), Grilled Seabass with dill sauce (290 baht), and Salmon with Hollandaise sauce (290 baht).

When I see a café with such a menu, I don’t get overly confident. You know the saying, “Jack of all trades, but master of none.”

But on a surprising note, those I ordered turned out to be quite tasty and flavourful.

The Nero Pasta Tom Yum (320 baht) had that tangy-sour-spicy sauce which made the squid ink spaghetti very appetising, and it was served with a gigantic grilled prawn.

Though I did think it was slightly on the expensive side.

The Basil Fried Rice with Fried Egg (125 baht) though slightly salty (suspect it was stock powder or something), was fried till deliciously-moist with the wok-heat.

You could wash the food down with their signature Banoffee Shake (135 baht) – creamy with a nice balance of sweetness.

A thing to note is their iced drinks come with an impossibly-cute 3D foam art of a bear, consistent with the teddy soft toys placed all around.
