Okay, so one of the cool things about teeny is that I’m always shooting videos on my way out of restaurants which means haley’s paying all the time doesn’t really matter because we’ve been married for over 20 years but it’s kind of nice anyway so uh you’re watching this video that means we left this place in aunt Aoy always I’ll give you some advice I would come off hours either before the lunch hour at 11.15 a.m if you want a brunch style or come after like 1pm because she makes every single dish almost one by one with care with love I think that’s her stick so it took a while to get served but it was delicious it was hearty it was sweeter than your typical Thai meal you know here on Teenee we give you all kinds of variety from the little holes in the wall that that pack a punch for spice to places like this that are more on the sweet side and a full flavor I can see why this place was busy full of Thai people it was a different flavor than than I’m used to so we want to leave it on we want you to come and check it out and taste aunt always thinks oh what one final tidbit of information she makes these curry puffs that uh if if she has them you gotta get them she was sold out today we’re a little bit disappointed about that so we’ll come back and maybe get some takeout curry puffs another time enjoy at aunt Aoy.


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.
