MBK Mall is probably one of the worst place to shop in Bangkok. And that was mainly because we are not a gadget person (mostly grey sets) or someone who would pay for a “I LOVE BANGKOK” t shirt and fridge magnet.
However, everyone in ‘the know’ in Bangkok knows MBK food court is the best in Thailand (so we heard). MBK houses two food courts – MBK fifth avenue and MBK Food Centre. MBK fifth avenue is a higher end version with more varieties while MBK food centre on the sixth floor is much cheaper.
We opted to dine at MBK Food Centre which is more localised and cheaper.
One will have to buy coupons to get his/her food here. Unused coupons can be refunded within the day.
Our khao kha moo (stew pork rice, 50 baht) came in a generous portion. The stew pork was tender and I loved how the ribbons of fat around the pork slices had a soft, gelatinous texture. However, the gravy was lacking in taste. It was an OK dish overall.
We hopped over to the food stall after having our main meals.
The mango sticky rice (80-100 baht) at MBK Food Centre was really good! The mango was extremely sweet and juicy while the glurinous rice was warm and sauce. The coconut cream drizzle added a lot of flavors it. So if you happened to be around MBK mall, give it a try!
