WINE ME DINE ME
After a long day in your claustrophobic cubicle, you need to reward yourself a little and sometimes a bag of deep-fried bananas doesn't cut it. That's why we're a little envious of people who work on Silom Road since they have plenty of food choices - from a make-shift table selling khao khai jiew in a foam box to hawkers who sell yam naem to shophouses to various buildings that house more respectable eateries.
United Center, which sits across the street from Bangkok Christian Hospital, is one such building and it features quite a collection of restaurants. On its basement level is Bangkok Shokudo, which has been opened for a few months now. It occupies the same area where Tokyo Shokudo once stood. S&P runs the place and decided to entirely change it from a full-on Japanese restaurant into a place that mainly serves Thai dishes as well as a handful of Japanese and Thai-Japanese fusion creations, like the name suggests.
If you've been here before, you will notice a few changes in the decor such as the wood partitions that have been repainted red, new ceiling lamps and Thai numbers above every table. But, the overall interior still exudes a minimalist vibe like you would expect from a generic Japanese joint.
