The restaurant ...
Usually after a consecutive days of heavy foods like the gaeng, yams and som-tum, MK Suki is always a good alternative for us. The Thai steamboat restaurant offers an extensive selection of greens. I love veg since I was young and it helps to balance my diet especially when I am in Bangkok, one of the many food paradise.
The place we patronized this time was one located right in the heart of the trendy Siam Square. And MK Suki ingeniously created a new flagship called Trendi to serve its young and hippie community in that area. The funky decor at the ground floor was a head-turner. However, we soon found out that the rest of the levels were gloomy and uninspiring. I guessed that's how they keep their prices friendly.

The restaurant (indoor) ...
The indoor dinning place is in an old two storey wooden house painted in pink. The small air-conditional restaurant occupies the first floor. The upper level houses two studios which mock up as bedrooms. As these studios are small & the angles are tight, I don't have a wide-angle cam to take any representative shots of these rooms. Suffice to say, we were very impressed by the nostalgic Victorian decor.

About THAIoholic

THAIoholic, the blog, is setup with the initial intention of keepsake. As time goes by, I find it harder and harder for my gray cells (of what left) to remember traces of great places we have been to, good foods we savored but missed, details that I should remember but they slipped away unknowingly.

Then, we have also friends and folks asking little details I thought I should blog them here, because my pea brain is simply no good at recollections.

My partner is a devoted Buddhist, his religion forbids him, and therefore me, from taking beef. As such, it's unlikely that there will be any info about beef dish found in this blog.
