CHIANG MAI Hidden Flavours in CHIANG MAI
This is one of those places where the owners and chefs have put together a smaller menu of items that they have dialled right in. They want to deliver a quality experience every single time and tend to deliver on that promise!
Man look at that tree gas delivery guys this place is called “The Hideout” and it is hiding out on a bit of a back street here in Chiang Mai but that’s not the reason it’s called The Hideout they like to say that flavor hides here and this is one of those places where the owners and the shafts have meticulously put together a smaller menu of items that they’ve honed in and what they want to do here is to really deliver a quality experience every single time so I had the French toast and I can show you a couple of shots of that but it’s made with home baked fresh challah bread and then it’s soaked in a rich delicious custard and this is one of the few places I’ve ever been that has maintained when you cut into the French toast this custardy custardy center here let me show you this place Hideout The Hideout and I’m eating with Adam Adam what did you order?
Adam: I had the Tropic Thunder sandwich it was really really good some chicken bacon some caramelized pineapple some lettuce and a really nice baguette all toasted perfection I really really liked it!
Chris: And then tell them you were gonna take some you were gonna order something else.
Adam: Yeah like this is an owner that really really cares and I appreciate that I was gonna order another sandwich that was on the menu and I want to get it without onion and then he really sort of steered me in the right direction and said Hey listen man like this this sandwich is is crafted to to be like this with the onions so if you take that out it’s like taking out a massive components of the sandwich and your experience just won’t be as good so if you don’t like onion get something else steered me to the Tropic Thunder and I’m happy I got it was it bombastic!
Chris: And funnily enough look at our bill the bill came in at 420 he had a smoothie and a sandwich I had a flat white and some custardy french toast goodness so if you want a really really special food experience that’s just tucked away back here in a gorgeous little setting then come in and check this place out when you get here look at each menu item each thing on here has been prepared to be served exactly as it is and sometimes it might seem simple but the flavors are far from it The Hideout gets yourself in here!
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.
