I’m gonna start this video a little different, I’m gonna start it with a little food porn.

Did you like that? we sure did! this place is called “Mensho Tokyo” and it’s one of those places it’s right on Sukhumvit halfway between Asok which is about 500 meters that way and Phrom Phong BTS which is about 500 meters that way right in the middle you can walk here from either of those bts stations and we’ve walked by this place hundreds of times over the past few years and living just up there, we never came in until tonight now we’re saying why did we never come in here until tonight. Okay, if you’re a ramen lover here’s the deal with this place you gotta get this thing called Hiyashi it’s a little appetizer, it’s a bowl of cold noodles with white truffle oil a little asparagus flavorsome little one Japanese tomato this thing is like an umami bomb in your mouth and it’s tiny you can get that you could have it yourself or share it with someone, then I got what’s called the Miso there goes a BTS Skytrain right up there. I got a Miso Wagyu thing and there’s two Wagyu one’s ungodly expensive this one was like 300 and something baht, not cheap! but two slices of of Wagyu Chashu in the broth, it’s a very rich rich broth, it’s not an everyday ramen. Haelee got the Tsukemen the noodles that you dip into the broth hers was also very rich we both love them 10 out of 10 but the jury’s out on whether this would be an everyday ramen place or just like a special treat ramen place I’d have to come back and try one of their more standard uh broths before deciding that because what we ate tonight was super rich but as I said it was an umami bomb well worth checking out if you’re in Sukhumvit.

 

Additional Information

Bangkok, Thailand has some of the most epic shopping anywhere on earth. Many of these massive mall complexes would put their counterparts in Europe or North America to shame. The Holy Grail of Bangkok shopping is IconSiam. This is a newly built architectural masterpiece located right on the east side of the Chao Praya river across from central Bangkok. It has anything and everything that you could think of. Whether you’re looking to purchase something from a luxury brand like Gucci, Chanel, Fendi, Rolex, etc. or simply want a basic Tee from Uniqlo, this place has it all. You can even buy a Ferrari right in the mall if you’re looking to spend some serious coin. There’s also an epic food court on the ground level of IconSiam which features all sorts of tasty Thai treats that you can get at street food prices. One thing that’s actually quite common across many Bangkok shopping centres is to have at least one or two food courts that act more like Thai markets than they do a typical eating area. The food in these areas are both tasty and cheap. The reason that these exist is because the developers or owners of these massive shopping complexes want to drive as much foot traffic as possible inside of their real estate. So, they give significant rent breaks to the vendors that would normally have to compete for space in an outdoor market. What ends up happening is that residents find a specific vendor or restaurant that they like, and make it a weekly routine to go and enjoy some food from that specific location, inside of whatever mall it exists in. The food courts inside of these malls actually become attractions on their own, resulting in more foot traffic inside of the mall.
