[Bangkok] Cult-favourite brand, Maison Kitsune can be found one of Bangkok’s departmental stores – The EmQuartier at Prom Phong (one of my favourite Bangkok shopping malls as well).
Attached to it is an equally adored coffee shop annex, Café Kitsune.
If you are wondering why the fuss, Café Kitsune has always been a favourite for instagrammers – whether food, fashion or lifestyle influencers due to its branding.
Their first store opened in Tokyo way back in 2013, and there are now over 20 stores worldwide.
There is also hear-say (as reported in AsiaOne and Mothership) that Café Kitsune will open in Singapore at Capitol Singapore soon.
While that is going to happen, the next nearest should be Bangkok’s outlet.
The brand has Paris and Tokyo influences, being a French-Japanese electronic record label and fashion brand created by two designers Gildas Loaëc and Masaya Kuroki.
Kitsune (きつね, 狐) is the Japanese word for “fox”.
The retail space is designed with sophisticated natural hues and touches of modern Thai detailing. Bamboo seats and bagasse panels are eco-friendly and reflect a closer bond with nature.
Walk through the retail section and head over to the café for one of their quintessential drinks, simple pastries and ice cream.
The coffee here is more muted and balanced to appeal to the crowd. The usual Latte (140 THB), Espresso (110 THB), Mocaccino (170 THB), iced or hot, is available.
They are priced higher than your average hipster coffee joints. (140 THB is about SGD5.35, USD3.87.)
It is recommended to order the Iced Chocolate & Matcha (170 THB), which is a medley of earthiness and milkiness. Matcha and chocolate, taken together, balances each other out to become a drink amazing to sip on.
Non-coffee drinkers probably want the Iced Yuzu & Honey (110 THB), Iced Lemonade (120 THB) and Iced Ginger Fizz (120 THB).
There were previously a few Bangkok exclusive drinks, but didn’t seem to be on the menu when I visited. Anyway, these are chilly and refreshing drink great for a hot day in Bangkok.
For their pastries, you may be biased towards the Carrot Cake (160 THB) which was surprisingly rustic-tasting and moist at the same time; and Lemon Cake (160 THB) which was dense but bursting with lemon flavour.
There are Cookies and the iconic Fox Shortbread (60 THB) too.
The union of Maison Kitsune and Café Kitsune should convince you to visit, especially #4thegram since you can do you shopping and eating all in one place. Consider this when you are in Bangkok.
