[Bangkok] Need a cure for your hurting heart? Your bad mood?

First Aid Kiss Café & Bar may be the place to forget your troubles. But you would first need to find this trendy café and bar, located upstairs of a pharmacy at Soi Thonglor.

Guess who operates the café? The owner of the pharmacy downstairs – which has been in business for over 30 years. They probably decided to dispense more than just pills but coffee as well.

The whole building at Sukhumvit Soi 55 is divided into 3 main areas.

The first floor is a regular pharmacy; the second floor a cosmetics and Thai fragrances shop; while the cafe is located on the 3rd and 4th floor.

To dive in to First Aid Café, the most affordable way if you are already in the center of Bangkok is to get the BTS to Thong Lor, then followed by a short 5 minutes’ walk to the café.

It is also very convenient to drive since they provide a spacious free parking lot next to the building (there is no parking fee).

The First Aid Kiss Cafe simulates an environment of a pharmacy, and these include all its little details.

From the food names, sets, decorations, and even a wall full of candy that will ‘treat’ you (not real medicine, of course, it’s just candy, but it is a pretty fun experience).

Recreated like a retro drugstore, it is decorated with neon signs with writings such as “How do you feel today?”, “Have some kisses and get well soon” and “Your problems are definitely over.” which are the cutest things ever.

The fact that they decorate the walls with medicine cabinets filled with candies is absolutely adorable.

The velvet chairs and sofas, wooden cool-looking counters, and those pretty metal lamps are great for TikTok or your IG Reel. Come dressed as a medical person if you want.

They have a decent variety of foods and drinks on the menu that are rather unique and interesting.

Items on the menu include Seafood Vol-Au-Vent (320 THB), Stuffed Waffle Sandwich Sticks (220 THB), Dried Beef Jerky (240 THB), Pork Cordon Bleu (300 THB), Beef Wellington (580 THB) to Carbonara (280 THB).

The price per individual dish ranges from 100 – 500 THB on average. As for the drinks, it ranges from 90 – 250 THB.

If you have friends to come with, you can try to order one of their sets to enjoy together, which will also be more affordable.

I have decided to try the “Healing set” out (555 THB), consisting of one main dish, one dessert, and two drinks.

The Spaghetti Olio (230 THB for ala carte) with crispy bacon, olive oil, dry chilli parsley and parmesan cheese, served in a black ceramic bowl.

To be honest, aside from the quality of the ingredients, the taste was decent though not great. I have also expected a bigger portion with more flavour. The good thing – it was surprisingly spicier than it looked.

The “First Kiss” dessert came in two parts with a soft chrysanthemum pudding served with hot chrysanthemum tea. Loved the pudding which was delightfully not too sweet with floral fragrance.

My favourite component were the drinks of Hangover and Yuzu Honey Soda.

The Yuzu Honey Soda was very refreshing, with tiny rose petals sprinkled adding more aesthetic value.

The soothing scent of mint tea, sweetness of peach puree, and sourness of strawberries could make you forget about the tiredness from Bangkok’s heavy traffic and heat.

While the food is not top notch, if you are looking for an Instagram photo spot, then this is a place for you to check it out – especially if you want to fulfill your Emergency Love, Hospital Playlist or The Good Doctor fantasies.
