I love Thai food. I am addicted to red curry. Addicted! I have it for breakfast, lunch and dinner! But sometimes when you are away from home for a long period you crave home comforts and western food. Lets face it, sometimes you need a pizza.
Quite often when I am away I crave these things, order them and as soon as I take a bite, I instantly regret it. If it is not as good as the food back home I immediately know I should have had the local food which is 99 times out of 100 amazingly tasty.
To find epic western food in Bangkok I had to search. But I found it.
La Pepina, Sukhumvits
It was not cheap but it was worth it. A great review led me to La Pepina. The restaurant was a little noisy but the service and the food were amazing. It gives any pizza I have had a run for it’s money! It is open Tue-Sun 11:30am-2:30pm, 6:30pm-midnight and 10 minutes from BTS Station Asok. I had the most amazing pizza for 300THB.
Best Burgers and fries
Game Over lounge, Thong Lo
Daniel Thaiger a gourmet burger truck entrepreneur, made famous by his amazing food, has now opened this amazing restaurant.
Not just the greatest burger in Thailand but one of the greatest burgers I have ever tasted! Not only is the food tasty, the environment is amazing. A bar set up with every kind of board and computer game you can think of. A nerds paradise. We passed the time waiting for our food to cook but laying Connect four and Jenga! Check out the website for opening times and the full menu.
Best chicken burger

Maison de Baguette, Sukhumvit
As a lot of you know, I love a Carbonara. Sadly these can either be amazing or awful. So when an Italian gentleman gave me a card with the details of his restaurant on when I was shopping for cornflakes in 7/11 and told me it was ‘proper Italian’, I thought I would give it a try. Boy am I glad I did. It was perfect. One of the best Carbonaras EVER! They kept bringing us delicious bread and olive oil and the food was magnificent. The ingredients were fresh and authentic and the seating area relaxed and comfy. I loved every minute of it. Definitely worth a visit! Check out their Facebook Page for more information.
These restaurants fed my craving for home comforts. I definitely recommend them all!
