i-am-coffee-silom-1

I am Coffee is a new addition to the cafe scene in Bangkok’s Silom district. This area doesn’t have as many cafes as Sukhumvit, so it’s always nice to find that a new one has sprung up. I am Coffee is located on Sathorn Soi 8, which is just a few minutes’s walk from Chong Nonsi BTS. You can also easily get there from Silom Road, by walking down Soi Pipat. The cafe has great coffee, a really nice layout and free wifi. If you’re coming from Chong Nonsi BTS, walk down Soi Pipat 2, then take  the first right.

a-ma-vegetarian-silom

This is one my my favorite lunchtime vegetarian places. The food here is always hot, unlike many similar places where the food can get a little cold if you arrive later in the day. A-Ma is just a few shops along from Sri Maha Mariamman Hindu Temple, so is a pretty busy place, especially at lunchtimes. It also attracts lots of local workers. One of the things I like about A-Ma is that they sell a good selection of fake meats. In the image above you can see the fake fish on the right. A typical meal of rice and

Tien Sin is one of my regular places to eat lunch in Bangkok, and is one of a very few that sell Vegetarian Somtum (Papaya Salad). Usually this is made with fish sauce. It located down a small lane off Soi Pipat 2, which is a road that connects Soi Convent and Soi Pipat. The nearest BTS Skytrain stations are Chong Nonsi (3-4 minutes’ walk) and Sala Daeng (5-7 minutes’ walk). This place is only open Monday to Friday and mainly attracts local office workers. It’s a small family business, with all the family pitching in. It open early morning

kathmandu-gallery-silom-2

Kathmandu is a very small photo gallery that’s just across the road from a popular Hindu temple – Sri Mariamman – on Pan Road in Bangkok’s Silom district. You could easily walk passed the gallery and not realize it’s there, as it’s tucked in between a men’s hair salon and a family cafe/restaurant. The galley is located in a restore pre-war shophouse, and is owned by Thai photo-artist Manit Sriwanichpoom. The main exhibition space is upstairs and is just a small room with photos on two of the walls. Downstairs is packed with mainly framed photos and books. There is
